Introduction / Excuse for the Trip

After five years of teaching English at universities and schools in China, we’ve decided to embark on a special trip: one that is entirely planned by others. What started as a late-night discussion over a bowl of noodles took us on a trip across the length of China.

With only the starting and ending points decided, and a time limit of just 30 days (July 29 to August 27, 2010), The Great China Quest is the story of our journey to cover the 2,000 miles from Urumqi to Guangzhou (without flying) while attempting to tackle 15 scavenger-hunt challenges that our Chinese students have dared us to complete (see The Rules).

The challenges were a means to travel and interact with local Chinese people in various walks of life. We’re now working on a book about our trip.
