Living the life
I'll pass on the motorcycle ride but yes this looks fantastic. I'm glad you didn't wake up the dog! and... love the backroads of dirt. Be careful.

Mountain top farming

A beautiful country. You make us want to go back. Had to laugh at your bliss of the air conditioning. So many miles so little time.

The most iconic image of Sagada

No matter where one is from this looks like a place where silent reflection should be the only sound.

K2 Hostel
Hi Guys- how did you book a room at the hostel? Thanks'Gill
9th July 2019

We didn't
We just turned up. It's busy but its a massive Chinese affair so likely usually have a bed, That said with that many people staying there it must be possible to book in advance as not all could be walk ins

The Mighty Manila
We stayed 4 nights and really enjoyed the city. Rich in history, warm people and nice day trips close by.

Classic travel journeys
You traveled amazing highways and scenic dirt paths. Your love of dangerous road and mighty mountains world wide have made for fantastic blogs... and life experiences. Life is not about gathering things but those amazing experiences that no one can take from you.

Slow travel
Ugh, 6 hours in a slow taxi. Glad your new friend was in the back seat with you. You continue to see all those small amazing backroad towns. Bravo.

Stone cities
The history of civilisations of antiquity I find exhilarating. China has so many ancient civilisations where evidence is here and there. I have seen evidence of the Shang in Henan and Sanxingdui in Sichuan Provence (Bronze Age). Do you know the civilisation in Xinjiang that built this stone city?

Good question
That's a good question DD. The info we got there just talked in Dynasties (as the Chinese tend to do), so we only know it dates from the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368). Tashkurgan has an interesting history have been the Captital of Western Regions at one stage and a kingdom of the Pamir Mountains at another. The name Tashkurgan means "Stone Fortress" or "Stone Tower" in the Turkic languages, a nod to another part of its past.

We certainly understand your hesitance to trust. Sounds like things are going well. Hope Marie's stomach is ok for the remainder of the trip.

Crossing the border
Definitely one of the most arduous border crossings I have read. This pic sums it up nicely! Luckily I was not with you, as you probably would have been arrested.

Fabulous pics of gaudy trucks lined up at the Pakistan/China border. Must have made your sojourn in Sost quite surreal. I've posted some of your pics in TB's "Follow that Road" thread in the Photography Forum. Check 'em out.
