Bye Bye Bhutan

Thanks to everyone who has taken this trip with me, for all your good intentions, love, and healing energy. I have carried you with me every step of the way as I’ve hoisted prayer flags and spun wheels, bowed for blessings, and reclaimed childhood lessons that were abandoned along the path to adulthood.

Feel free to contact me if you’re headed for Bhutan. I will happily share tips and information. I want you to have as life-changing and wonderful an experience as I’ve had. Bhutan is the most beautiful place I’ve ever visited, not just because of its landscapes. The Bhutanese people are a reminder that we don’t always have to go first, have the most or best, or be attached to outcomes that are so often beyond our control.

My journey continues to Chiang Mai and back to Bangkok. After a short stop in Tokyo, I’m back in San Francisco.

Follows are some images from my final days in Bhutan.
