Greetings, Wanderluster!

Beth - Snowman TrekI made it, I made it! Yes, I completed the 25-day Snowman Trek in Bhutan. It was a spectacular trip that brought our little group over a number of high passes as well as near glaciers and turquoise-colored lakes (like this >>>). It was so amazing that I’ve decided to do it again! Want to join me in 2016? Here are details for our next Snowman Trek.

I’m now in Chiang Mai leading our Northern Thailand and Laos Hill Tribe tour. We’re having such a good time eating our way through the country that I’m seriously considering a culinary tour here next. Yum!

BurmaBy the way, if you’ve been eyeing our Southeast Asia trips, I’ll be leading our Burma tour in February. We’ve Burma Pagoda got space available on this incredible trip that highlights the country’s most beautiful pagodas. Also the Vietnam and Cambodia tour is nearly sold out so if you’re interested in that tour, don’t delay in registering.

If you’re interested in staying updated on my whereabouts and experiences (including photos of both the trek and the Thailand and Laos tour), I’m most active on Facebook, so please friend me there.

Best American Travel WritingThe Best American Travel Writing
edited by Paul Theroux and Jason Wilson
This is the latest compilation of the best travel writing by Americans. You’ll recognize at least a couple of the authors (Andrew McCarthy and David Sedaris) but most might be new to you (though they are still talented and well-published). It’s excellent armchair travel but also a great treat to read while you’re on a journey :-)

Riverboat Records: Music From The SourceRiverboat Records: Music From The Source
This is a 25-year celebration of the best recordings from Riverboat Records. It’s a delightful grouping of songs that includes musicians from Greece, Martinique, Guinea, Serbia and much more. If you’re looking for a roundup of international music, here’s a great starting point. And, hey, it’s a double CD to boot!

Tracks
by Robyn Davidson
I read this book probably 20 years ago. And it’s now a movie! This follows the story of Robyn Davidson who walked from the center of Australia to Perth, on the west coast. Read the book then see the movie. It’s sweet. And inspiring.

Icebreaker Tech Top Long Sleeve Crew
Lovin’ my Icebreaker Tech Top Long Sleeve top that I practically lived in during the Snowman Trek. But beyond trekking, it’s going to be a great top for cold weather all winter long. Read more here…
