My favourite destination
I always meant to sell Nepal, in the early days of Rickshaw Travel (way back in 2008). Setting up a new company whilst running another company, Travel Nation, meant that this never happened, which I regret. Anyway, Nepal is probably my favourite country in the world and I can’t wait for my kids to be old enough to take them trekking there. I think the people in Nepal are some of the most friendly I’ve ever met, particularly in the villages. Almost everyone manages to be pleasant and optimistic, usually despite having very basic homes and only a few possessions.
I travel to...
Remember my life!
Whilst I love my routine at home and no longer have the energy to spend months and years on end travelling as I did when I was in my 20’s, if I don’t immerse myself somewhere new from time to time, months and years can blend into each other. I always feel wonderfully alert and curious when I am in very different places like Asia, Africa or Latin America and can recall my travel adventures, people, and even meals from 20 years ago with far more clarity compared to my time at home.
