Slow Boat to China

To travel hopefully is better than to arrive, and the true success is to labour.”  Robert Louis Stevenson.

Jeff (32), my son and I are on our way to China. Actually we are flying Air Canada to Hong Kong, then a connecting flight to our first stop Singapore. Eventually to Beijing. It will be a very exciting trip for both of us, as Jeff lives in Winnipeg and I in Vancouver. Just because of geography, we do not have as many chances to do things together as we both would like. I call this our bonding trip.

Jeff goes all over the place to play Ultimate. His Team Chaos from Winnipeg has won Canadian National Championship and has represented Canada at World Ultimate Championship in Turku Finland. Winning Silver medal.

Ultimate is a non contact team game played with a flying disc (frisbee). It is based on the principles of fair play, sportsmanship and the joy of play, much like Bridge.

I don’t think I be playing Ultimate any time soon but there is still hope for Jeff in Bridge.

Our bags are packed and we are ready to go!
