What's the best travel experience you have ever had?

Q&A time again. I know it’s been a while… If you have some questions for me, just ask.

I’m not sure what the best travel experience I’ve ever had, but the one that had the biggest impact on me was travelling to Nepal in 1983. We lived there for three years and I had only had one term of Prep before we went. I don’t remember much of the actual travelling, however I do have memories of living there.

The picture on this post is the view from our house in Pokhara, where we lived for two years. Some of my experiences there, and when we returned to Australia, were inspiration behind Swallow Me, NOW!

We are planning a return trip in 2016, I can’t wait to go back. Next year, it will be 30 years since we left Nepal, this time I’ll be travelling with my own kids.
