Hiking: Moontrekker training hikes

The Moontrekker hiking event is taking place on October 25, 2013 this year (you can find out more on the Moontrekker event website) and while I'm not participating in the actual race, I've joined a few of the training sessions, run by the Hong Kong Hiking MeetUp group.

Hiking: Lantau Trail Stage 7

We are still planning to finish the Lantau trail this year, but it is looking to become difficult - there are not many more weekends that Monica and I are both in Hong Kong and have no plans, other than to go hiking. But we'll see! We've got six stages in total and some of… Continue reading Hiking: Lantau Trail Stage 7
