#1 in the Wan­der­lust World Guide Awards!!

Many thanks to Mark and the team at Moun­tain Mad­ness in Seat­tle; to Kili, Sagar, Dawa and the team in Nepal; and to my clients who, in addi­tion to say­ing some very gra­cious things about me, have allowed me to be a part of their lives in such a mean­ing­ful way. It’s real­ly amaz­ing to guide peo­ple through such a chal­leng­ing, trans­for­ma­tive, and enrich­ing expe­ri­ence, and I am very grate­ful to be able to live in the world in this way!

I have been over­whelmed by the vol­ume of respons­es, so please for­give me for not reply­ing per­son­al­ly to your emails and posts, but I am awash in your love and sup­port. Thanks for that!! Thanks also to those of you who were check­ing the Wan­der­lust web­site for an announce­ment dur­ing the cer­e­mo­ny – it was an unex­pect­ed joy to open my com­put­er at 1 am and find so many con­grat­u­la­to­ry emails – real­ly wonderful!!
