Fall colors nyc

Fall is a great time to travel, and there is a well-worn path heading to America’s Northeast to see the fall colors every year. You have to try to get your reservations early for fall foliage viewing, and then fight the crowds, which doesn’t sound like much fun to me. But then again I try […]

evil eye

I’ve been traveling for 7 years, thanks to a little luck, I’ve had relatively few bad luck experiences. Sure, I’ve experienced some issues – luggage delayed a number of times, flights canceled, items stolen, faulty gear, and illnesses. But none of these things were ever really serious or horrible. Not like my friend Charlie’s story […]

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 […]

Father’s Day was last Sunday; what better time to reflect upon my recent travels with my father. Last October I traveled to Nepal to hike the Annapurna Circuit with my 73 year old father.  We hiked for 21 days with many ups and downs…quite literally.  I blogged about each step of that journey here on […]

A Home in Thamel – Ambassador Garden Home Hotel

April 22, 2010 6 Comments »

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 […]

Venice thinks that it has the corner on the market when it comes to pigeons, but don’t discount Kathmandu’s pigeon population!  They were everywhere, intermingled with each other, people, and of course the holy cows!

Kathmandu Photography – Boudhanath

The Buddhist stupa of Boudhanath is one of the largest in the world.  It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site,  and it is one of the most popular tourist sites in the Kathmandu area.  Everytime I’m in Kathmandu it’s worth a stop not only for the stupa itself, but for thetemples, buildings, and people surrounding it.  Monks, […]

Kathmandu Photography – People

April 15, 2010 15 Comments »

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. Nepalese!  Old, young, sleeping, working, spiritual, and happy – a broad spectrum of the people of Nepal.

Kathmandu Photography – Markets

April 14, 2010 6 Comments »

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 […]
