“Travel is rebellion in its purest form… We follow our hearts. We free ourselves of labels. We lose control willingly. We trade a role for reality. We love the unfamiliar. We trust strangers. We only own what we can carry. We search for better questions, not answers. We truly graduate. We sometimes choose to never come back.”
“I’m running down a narrow path through the trees, leaping from rock to rock in an attempt to follow a young girl with pigtails who is leading the way. Giggling as she runs, she is agile and confident on the small rocky path, scampering down the hillside like a goat. She takes a sharp left turn up what looks like a wall of steep rock and within seconds is perched on the top, waiting for me with a grin. Her cheap plastic sandals don’t stop her.

This series is definitely my favorite of all the stories you’ve shared!!
Me to me too!
I absolutley love your writing style…I find myself eagerly awaiting the next post! I think you’ve got quite a future in telling your stories & I am so jealous of your adventures!!
I just ran across your blog completely by accident or perhaps not. I just returned from a solo bike tour across the U.S. and at the age of 55 for the first time felt I was living an authentic life. Can’t wait to get on the road again. It is truly a magical experience. I made a life long friend along the way who happens to be a lot like how I imagine you are. A wanderer and adventurer. If the fates allow perhaps our paths will cross someday. Happy trails!
Amazing how a whole different part of you comes alive when you are on the road! Happy trails to you as well.

It feels so… relaxed.
And Nepal is a wonderful place, but I can’t identify myself with the ‘rebellion in its purest form’. For me, traveling means leaving the world behind, leaving all problems behind. The exact opposite of rebellion: something completely natural.
I like what you guys are up too. This kind of clever work and exposure! gbaddddcaecf
