I’ve just returned back to the UK after an unbelievable time in Los Angeles.

I also wanted to get a blog out there, thanking everyone for the love and support since the podcast went live.

Joe is an American stand-up comedian, mixed martial arts (UFC) commentator, podcast host, and former actor and television host.
Ash said “I’m super stoked to be on the podcast, I’ve been a fan of Joe and his podcasts for a while now and always hoped to get on the show one day, but never thought it would be this soon!”
Ash has flown back to China, only two weeks after his three-week speaking tour across Asia for the International Dulwich Colleges.

I’ve not really had much time to sit back and reflect, but I’m cool with that, as I’d much prefer to keep busy and continue the ball rolling with many events, activities and plans.

I’m currently leaving Dali as I write this and I feel so refreshed due to dedicating that weeks visa run to refuelling my body with all the good stuff and working on body mobility, agility and flexibility. Especially after being stuck in such a fixed position for a long time (trekking with a weighted rucksack constantly strapped to my back).
When originally mapping the route and planning the mission, Yibin seemed such a huge distance away, that I remember not really planning Panzhihua to Yibin in much detail, believing it wouldn't be too difficult. I was wrong and although no way near as tough as the first couple of months, it still had its challenges and this section took me an extra two weeks longer than anticipated.
