Travel Special: Asia Upclose

Silk Roads to Shanghai – Full Documentary from Sand2Snow Adventures on Vimeo.

Be just like the Irish Adventures David Burns and Maghnus Collins. Spend 11 months on an expedition of Istanbul to Kathmandu all on a bike. Then run 1000km’s in 26 days across the Tibetan Plateau before you get your money’s worth with a kayak excursion down the third longest river all the way to Shanghai. All this and more in the documentary above from Sand2Snow Adventures.


Face the Litter: Billboards Shame Litterbugs with DNA From Trash

The South China Morning Post is reporting on an anti-littering campaign in Hong Kong that uses DNA from trash collected on the street to generate digital portraits of the litterbugs onto billboards across the city. The campaign was apart of the Hong Kong Cleanup Initiative for Earth Day of this year. The goal of the billboards is to shame litterbugs into picking up after themselves and to raise the awareness of litter as an individual and community issue.
