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.

  1. We are heading to Nepal next year and I was thinking about cleaning out my cupboards and taking all my warm clothing to give away when we get there. Is that the right thing to do? I don’t want to offend anyone. Appreciate your thoughts on this. Thanks, Mel

  2. Hello, Good to hear from you.
    Your gesture is very kind and thoughtful, although in my experience in Nepal, many people may really value the opportunity to be able and purchase choose their clothing. A small amount of cash can be very well spent by a local in a local clothing shop.
    Wishing you a wonderful trip next year. M
