The 2015 earthquake.  

So many stories of the great earthquake.  The biggest earthquake in 80 years.  The people in the villages I have walked through tell of the randomness and tragic events with an acceptance that can only come from from the Buddhist philosophy.  Nepal has been set back by many years and struggles to rebuild but there remains a joy in life and honouring of the divine, whatever that is, that is unmatched in the West.  Tonite is a Dewali night, of the cow, and as the villagers go from door to door singing and dancing, their joy and warm sense of connected community is inspirational.

I am an experienced trekker and hiker. I enjoy taking photographs and travelling. I prefer wilderness and remote places. Travel often as much as I can. Prefer off-season as less people around. Winter is always a great time. Happy to share local knowledge about the beautiful island of Tasmania. I support humanitarian and Human Rights causes and spend much of my time working pro-bono for and in developing countries.
