Wow. WOW!!! I am thrilled to tell you that I am going to London as one of the top 3 finalists for the Wanderlust World Guide Award!!!

I am honored and humbled by the outpouring of support from so many of my clients, who wrote testimonials about why they thought I should win this award. It is on the basis of those words and experiences that Wanderlust magazine has selected me as a finalist, and the winner will be announced in London on October 8 at the Royal Geographical Society.

Nearly a third of the people who have traveled with me took time to write in—which was staggering in its own right and really touched me. I’ve always felt that guiding is part of my purpose in life, an opportunity to share my love of Nepal and the Himalayas, to facilitate a deeper connection between travelers and the local culture and communities, and to support individuals in their own growth and exploration through transformative travel. It was truly amazing to hear from so many people who were moved, changed, and inspired by their experience in Nepal. It is a gift in and of itself to think that I have been a part of so many lives in this way.

A big thanks to Mark at Mountain Madness for the nomination. Many, many thanks to all of you who have contributed your time and testimonials to make this happen! You’re AWESOME! And I’m going to London!

Some people have already said they’d like to come to London, and this is an invitation to anyone who would like to join me there: October 8–the celebration is on!
