Day 5 – The Snow Leopard

We’re in Tsarang. The snow started falling around 2am and continues to fall. We are at 3650m and there is about 5-10cm of settled snow. It’s 7.15am and here are no signs of life from the folk at Maya’s Inn. Our 7am breakfast seems to…

Irrational Fear

Arriving in Nepal and getting a taxi from KTM airport to Thamel one thing became abundantly clear. The concept of a motorway is many miles away. Paved roads are barely paved, and the rest are dirt roads. Still, I have no problem with dirt roads,…

Day 0.481 – Squamish

Before arriving in Vancouver, everyone who’d been there told me how amazing it was. How it was a place that they’d only visited once but could easily move there given the opportunity. Well, I have to say that I was thoroughly unimpressed. Vancouver is basically…

Day 0.111 to 0.296

The West Coast Trail. Six days of hiking, with a heavy rucsac, doesn’t sound like fun. But what if there was a wonderful crag at the end, perfect sandstone walls with perfect gear placements, just waiting for your hands to delicately fondle their way up?…

Day 0.0375

After a 2 hour delay, I was happy to be boarding the plane. I shouldn’t have been. We taxied out and then came back to port due to some problem with the plane. Whilst the engineers worked on the plane we were told to sit…
