You’re Going To Miss Asia

I’m going to miss Asia and so are you – typed during the wee morning hours in the Dubai airport, jet-lagged and in a state of near-shambles. Of course, there’s much missing from this little write-up; things I skipped, things that can’t be described, and endless things I simply forgot to mention. Sorry in advance about the mess of words. I’m going to miss Asia. A lot. I better write...

The Annapurna Diaries: Day 4

The Annapurna Diaries: Day 2

The Annapurna Diaries: Day 2, Ngadi to Jagat I’m tired. It’s starting to get colder already, at 1300 meters. It’s raining steadily now and it’s blowing hard. I’m glad my walking has finished for the day. The first part of the trek was nice – walking along valley and rivers, on cobblestone paths, through villages, it was nice. The second part consisted of me suffering while walking up...
