Bridges I Have Crossed

2010 03 13 Trekking Nepal Ama Dablam 0119.JPG

"Bridges I Have Crossed" was my first ever attempt at a travel journal.  A short story of only 9,000 words written in mid-2010, and first published as a photobook, it details my original journey to the Himalayas, something I would come to do several times over.

This trip comes a very close second to my 2015 Camino in terms of personal significance.

 

The detailed written story can be found here and photos here.
