Today I’m taking a break from my Road Trip Tip series for some Monday dreaming. I’m pleased to be sharing a photo post by Peter West Carey, an intrepid spirit, whom I met and shared a great Mexican meal with in July at the Travel Blog Exchange conference in Chicago. This after he drove there from Seattle in a van with two other travel bloggers; you can read more about their adventures at the TBEX Road Trip.
I’ve never seen the Himalayas and it’s definitely a dream of mine to do so (although I think it may be a while before I get to go on a trek!). Peter’s goal in sharing his pictures is to encourage others to get out and look at the world around them. I find his work inspirational and know that I’d love for my kids to have experiences of the kind he describes.
This photo was taken while I was trekking through the Khumbu region of Himalayas in Nepal. These Tibetan shepherds were catching up with a group near Phortse earlier in the day and sat with my group as they took a break. With no common language between us, I and my companions made friends by offering some snacks and water, in exchange for smiles and handshakes. A chance encounter that left its mark by bringing distant strangers a bit closer together.
