It may surprise you to learn, that trekking without any modern day clothing or equipment isn't actually all completely horrendous. In fact, I would go as far to say that in some aspects, it's just as good, if not an improvement. Obviously, my 1900s equipment wasn'...

I was told I would never find a female trip leader in northern India. What I’ve learned during this whole process however, is never to accept what people tell you in situations like that. Perhaps it’s easier just to do the normal thing and not to challenge the way thin...

In 1911, Alexandra David-Néel left Paris for Northern India. This was the beginning of a 14 year journey through Asia, which would eventually lead her, disguised as a beggar, to the capital of Tibet, Lhasa. I first read her book My Journey to Lhasa when I was 16, and e...
