March 1997 Mountains & Monasteries TREK now available.

If trekking in Nepal this year sounds like a good idea to you then come join us for a cultural journey into the heart of a land known for its magic and renowned beauty.

This page also includes a full stock photo list, resume, motivational seminar information and an epic adventure travel tale from the lost Himalayas.


NEPAL A land of magic and deep compassion - Nepal has captured my heart and changed my life forever. This is a place where adventures are born and mysteries unfold on a daily basis. For a journey into a past where Llamas flew from mountain top to mountain top, where the Yeti is still king and where the earth reaches its highest towards the heavens - check out a tour of Nepal.

THAILAND The klongs (canals) of Bangkok, Thailand are the focus of this photo essay. The klongs are the Thai version of the canals of Venice. They connect an extensive system of Bangkok neighborhoods and are fascinating in the sense that in so many ways the neighborhoods are typical Thai suburbs yet all travel, commerce and socializing takes place on the water.

S. AMERICA The countries of South America are like so many other third world countries in the sense that they are teetering on the brink of the twentieth century. How will they survive the transition and what traditions might they maintain to help them retain their unique heritages?
