My trip from Toronto to Shanghai went very smoothly, but was pretty tiring. We had to leave for the airport at 5am, and I wouldn’t land in Shanghai until 16 hours later. Since we crossed the international date line, I still can’t shake the feeling that I may have travelled through time.
I did get to see some cool stuff along the way though. I saw the Rocky Mountains, Russia, and Korea.
There were five Silk Route riders on the Vancouver to Shanghai flight, and we all got our bags and bike boxes very quickly and found our waiting taxis.
We checked in at the hotel and I took a nap. Later, I woke up and couldn’t fall asleep so I used the time to unpack my bike and put it together.
