What is a Ri?

"Ri" is a Tibetan word that means a high place with a view; a place with prayer flags fluttering in the wind; a place to be quiet and to enjoy. 

Fun travel starts early, and if the food is really good ... It's usually messy.

This was my 3rd adventure with Ri and Rusty, Myanmar, then Galapagos lodges and then Traverse Asia from Beijing to Kathmandu ... wow, amazing highlights trip. Train from China to Lhasa, then Mt Everest hiking, then cycling in Kathmandu was "organized chaos" and so much fun. Large smile, thanks Rusty

There just is no place like the Galapagos. Amazing animals and habitats to learn about, lagoons and beaches to swim and snorkel, the beautiful night sky, watching a flying fish being chased by a sea lions being chased by a shark next to our boat.  Rusty has been to the Galapagos many times and never loses his enthusiasm for the many animals and places to see.

The whole Bhutan trip was a wonder, and we came home with tons of photos. There were photos in and around the white monasteries, the local folks home in Ringar, of the archery, everywhere. Loved it Rusty. Thanks.
