While hiking with Denkar, I learnt how the King of Bhutan reads her travel blog and even invited her to meet him!
Is Bhutan really the happiest country in the world, I found myself wondering.
In the months since I left Japan, I faced a strange melancholy… and a barrage of reader questions.
There is something about Thailand that keeps calling me back.
Deep in the stark, barren Nuratau Mountains, I found myself in an idyllic little Uzbek paradise.
I fell in love not just with Uzbekistan’s grand mosques, minarets and mausoleums, but also with its quaint mountain villages and ancient Sufi connection.
With its awe-inspiring mountainous landscapes, warm-hearted people and “off the beaten path” status, Tajikistan beckons.
If there’s one country in the world that’s worth the pre-trip hassle, it’s Iran.
Mission frickin impossible. That’s how someone described my quest to spend a month exploring Japan as a vegan.
If you pick only one international travel destination this year, pick Iran.
