I'm Climbing to Mount Everest Base Camp

For the past two years (2022 and 2023), my goal was to travel to three countries per year. In 2024, I've decided to primarily focus on one adventure in one country - Nepal's Mount Everest. The idea flighted into my mind last year when I was discussing the location of Mount Everest with an Engineer at Cisco. Then it came back to me this week with a sudden and definitive calling.

I'm going to climb to Mount Everest Base Camp in 2024. I won't share the trekking company or the date I'm going for my safety. However, know that I've done my due diligence to pick a highly safe group to go with. I'm happy to share privately once the excursion is over.

How to Create a Solo Travel Itinerary

Last year, I decided that I would start challenging myself to go to three new countries every year. With solo travelling, I can choose my itinerary from start to finish, and I have so much flexibility. Solo travelling last year for the first time was a huge confidence boost, and I'm so excited to continue my journey to three countries per year.

Moving to a Traveler’s Notebook

Since graduating college, I’ve used Moleskine notebooks and planners. My most used Moleskine notebooks are the Classic Collection squared hard cover and soft covers, and the large yearly planner. I was using the notebooks for Morning Pages mainly, and the planner for my day-to-day tasks. However, I found that I wasn’t as motivated to write, and that part of it was the pressure of the large page, and of wanting to use the notebook for more than Morning Pages.

The Logistics of Classics

This article offers a short guide to reading Classics affordably. First off, I would say easily that Classics are the cheapest type of book to read in different formats (paper, digital, audiobook).

Here, when I talk about Classics, I’m talking about literature that is reputable. You can find many lists of Classics online through a quick Google search. I also recommend looking for YouTube videos about beginner-friendly Classics. At the end of this article, I’ll share three short Classics I recommend to start with.
