    My international travels have come to an end. Many thanks to my Nepali homestay family, school friends, and just everyone in Nepal for making my Fall in Nepal so special. And thanks to YOU for following along! I hope my writing and videos inspired you to go out and create lifelong experiences. Namaste and until next time.z

    Merry Christmas everyone! I have just returned from a week-long trek to Tipling village and climbed to a max altitude of 3,850 meters. I am happily overwhelmed by the experience and I hope I capture that in my new Week 16 post. Stay tuned for my Week 15 post, I am still reflecting on my feelings from that moving week. Will publish as soon as it starts making more sense to me.z

    Wow, things are quickly coming to a close here in Nepal. I just finished my last day of class today and am getting ready to leave for a weeklong trek in the Himalayas with the Cardoner Project. I'll be in Nepal till the 13th of January and will keep you all posted with where things are going over here. Other than that, happy holidays and have a wonderful time wherever you are!z

    Last week, I injured my hand playing futsal (to come in my Week 15 post) and that has been making editing videos a little difficult. I did, however, get a chance to do two write-ups of the work I have been doing while in Nepal through Teach For Nepal and the Rangjung Yeshe Shenpen. Click those links to read about my work and stay tuned for more to come.z

    Week 4 and Week 9 blog posts are now up! These are very feature-rich write-ups with sound, pictures, video, and even GIFs. I hope you take the time to look through them, I've really tried to bring these beautiful places to you z

    Sorry about the delay in the video posts. I upgraded my system to OSX Yosemite and my Final Cut Pro software wasn't working until I downloaded the new version (internet is super slow over here!). In the meantime, I've been adding some new features to the site like this status slider and a redesigned travel log! Check it out and I'll have more blog posts up for you all soon!z

    I just returned from a weeklong pilgramage with Choki Nyima Rimpoche to Bodhgaya, India, the place where the Buddha reached enlightenment. There will be two new exciting videos to come this week.z

    I've been working without technology for some time due to being away from the keyboard and also this. I'll have up two videos and a reflection within the coming week, so please stay tuned.z

    After spending close to 30 hours in transit from Boston to Kathmandu, I am finally in Nepal! I really appreciate you sending me positive messages as I set off on this journey for the next 5 months. My hope is that you get a taste of Nepal through my pictures, videos, and writings. I'm really looking forward to sharing my adventures with you!z
