tbt: witnessing “the lady” speak to 1000s of locals at a NLD campaign rally in kalaw, myanmar 1 month before the 2012 elections. despite the fact i couldn’t understand a word, it remains 1 of my most cherished travel memories.
#waybackwednesday: people watching in ubud, bali. “travel is like love, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. that is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.” — pico iyer #fuggiamotravels #bali #travel #wanderlust
one of the day’s highlights: visiting @maitinepal & meeting anuradha koirala. a recent CNN hero recipient, she founded maiti nepal to rescue, shelter, & rehabilitate victims of abuse & sex trafficking.

a happy belated new year! just a few days ago, i left kathmandu unsure of what was to come. i started a solo trek, during which i hiked through diverse landscapes, witnessed extreme rural poverty, met many incredible people, & caught a glimpse of the world’s most famous mountains. feeling a roller coaster of emotions now, but here’s hoping 2015 will bring more growth, gratitude, connection, & travels! #fuggiamotravels #nepal #annapurna #wanderlust
