After 10 months on the road without consistent access to a gym or training facility, I was nervous about going to China. Despite being out of shape and generally tired from traveling, I was going to Qufu, a small town a few hours north of Shanghai, to live and film at the Shaolin Kung Fu […]
For last week’s #JSETT chat, we played a travel edition of “Would You Rather…?” We gave participants six either/or options relating to a certain type of travel—extreme weather conditions, questionable cuisine, adrenaline-pumping adventure, etc.—and asked which ones they would choose. The answers were as enthusiastic as they were varied! Keep reading to see how people […]
