October is the busy season for trekking in Nepal.  The weather is perfect, the locals are out harvesting, and there are no monsoon rains!  One year ago I was hiking the Annapurna Circuit with my father; having one of my most memorable travel experiences.  We met a myriad of local children and adults along the [...]

Toy Story

7 Comments 02 August 2010

Last week I wrote about how brave kids can be when it comes to travel; somehow when we grow up we grow scared.  This got me thinking about some of my travels and the kids I meet along my journeys.  My recent hiking trip to Nepal came to mind.  As my father and I hiked [...]

A Home in Thamel – Ambassador Garden Home Hotel

6 Comments 22 April 2010

In the middle of the craziness of Thamel (the tourist district) I found this gem boutique hotel; a diamond in the ruff! What makes staying at the Ambassador Garden Home Hotel a unique experience is the staff. It feels as you are a member of their family. When my father and I arrived they served [...]

Kathmandu Photography – People

15 Comments 15 April 2010

Kathmandu is a great place to photograph people.  Most locals are excited to have their photo taken if you ask their permission.  However I prefer catching them in their daily activities as opposed to posed shots.

Kathmandu Photography – Markets

6 Comments 14 April 2010

The city of Kathmandu is filled with markets everywhere you go.  The morning is especially active as kids make their way to school by foot and adults get their fresh produce and meat for the day.  Everywhere you look it feels as if someone is selling something; produce, flowers, jewelry, peanuts, and guiding services!  The [...]
