I’m heading to Pashupatinath Temple, along the river, site of […]
It’s not easy to leave home with nothing but a backpack, but luckily along the way I’ve made some incredible memories with people. Because I so rarely mention any friends on this blog, I thought that heading home warranted a post that highlighted some of the people I met during my travels. These incredible souls […]

36,000 feet below me, the ground is patchwork of brown. Brown roads, brown fields. There is nothing to distinguish it from flying over South Australia or the Midwest of the US. A few minutes later, the captain comes over the intercom to inform us we are beginning our descent into Kathmandu. My tired mind is […]
