Kindness

Nepal is not a rich country. Where I was living in a village, what they have compared to what most of us is scarce. Nepal is however rich in its people. These people are of the most gregarious and welcoming I have ever met. I was welcomed by the village as family. As time went…

What Are You Manifesting

“Is this really what I should be doing?” Hopefully you’ve all asked yourself this before. I love to take many opportunities, apply myself to anything I can get my hands on. There was even a time when I would be driving down the road and see all these “Help Wanted” signs and find it hard…

Would you actually want to live abroad?

Everyone who has left on an adventure knows the question, “How was it? Tell me all about it!” as soon as they walk in the door. “It was good,” is all that comes out. The feeling of change and a whole new exploration flows out slowly in stories, when one is reminded of something insignificantly…

washboard roads

MELBS TO PERTH ACROSS THE NULLA Roadtripping is the best way to see a country, especially one as vast as Australia. Australia can be as rugged and isolated as it gets. Many people warn you – “take lots of water…extra food…there won’t be many servo’s (petrol/gas stations) so take a jerry can” and there’s always…

planted in OZ

My year in Australia¬†on a working holiday is coming to a close… which now seems hard to believe. I love this country. The smell of tea tree, kookaburras laughing, the rugged land. Beautiful coastline. Reef, surf..¬†more islands that I have yet to explore. Just walking outside and smelling the earth around me brings me great…

Patches of happiness

Ups and downs. Life is always described as a rollercoaster, and it’s definitely true. When I look back at 2017, my whole year and half of travel just sits in one box of nostalgia. I left home with that one way ticket to Nepal, knowing it would be sometime until I returned. Well, I can’t…

Peace, peace, peace

This is for everyone that has been cornered to the point they had to question all they knew, all they are.  How do I shed light on an experience if every moment, story actually requires being there? To feel it, to see it from all sides.   Have you ever known a sociopath? A narcissist? …

Ocean dreaming on Koh Tao

The dream and the reality is coming to an end. Life on koh Tao is always authentic and a new experience, yet very comfortable and simple. All I worry about is catching the sunset.  I’ve lived 5 months on this island over the last two years, coming back on 4 separate trips. The in between…

Sister – dearest Didi

‘Tif!!!’ My best friend and sister , Rupa, calls. It’s like our souls have known each other before. It’s hard to put it all into words. From the very beginning, Rupa has been outgoing and courageous. Her family welcomed strangers, their new next door neighbors, to their home for lunch everyday and let 15 people use…

Be fearless

Change… something I know is good for me. Something that I have cultivated for myself over the last two years especially, living in one place for no longer than typically 3 months. I want to learn different jobs, have new places to explore; I want to escape the mundane. I want to look forward to…
