17 days, 11 countries, 8 trains and nearly 8000 miles later... I've made it to my final destination, the great city of Hong Kong. 

Phew. That was some journey to work howies.

I'm pooped!

Well I've made it to China and Beijing. Today was my 'day in the city' as I leave Beijing tomorrow on yet another 24 hour train ride down to Honkers (the final destination) and even though I walked till I dropped, I barely even scratched the surface of what this city has to offer. So after mulling my options over a coffee this morning, I decided to bail on the tourist route and just wander...up and down the back streets, through the old hutongs, ate 'who knows what' from the street vendors, chatted chinglish to cheery old blokes, took plenty of pictures and got properly lost.

A good day. Time for a beer to wash down the dog meat.

Cheerio, more from Hong Kong.

p.s beijing is swarming with amazing skate spots, next time I'm bringing my board.

Older followers of howies may recognise this as it was in the back of an old catalogue.

One of my favourite catalogues we've done, brilliant weather, which is very rare for a shoot and just a bunch of mates building a ramp. Just so happened we had to shoot a catalogue at the same time.

6000Ks, 5 time zones, countless stops, -40C temps, 2 border crossings and we pulled into Beijing Central train station just 2 minutes late. Unbelievable.

That was, indeed, an epic train journey. 

I'll send more as soon as I have eaten real food!
