The Adventures of Blue Bear

Your heart will melt watching and listening to this 3 year old American boy trekking with his Blue Bear in Nepal, learning about life in the Himalayas, making friends, cooking, carrying water, and helping his family set up children’s libraries in rural communities. He is learning and experiencing real life, a gift more valuable than images from a tv screen or tablet.

Pioneering The Simple Life

There once was a time, not too long ago, when our children were very small but what some might call brave. They ventured (as they still do) each year to the other side of the planet, to the Himalayas, and those first years were precious because they didn’t know they were doing something special.

They thought everyone travelled to the base of Mount Everest to live the good life.

Their years spent over the winter months with our Sherpa family, Ang Temba and Yangin, in the village of Khunde at 12,600 feet, are among the happiest months of our lives. We had no distractions, committing our time to the children’s well-being up there, enjoying the simple pleasures of family company and the rhythms of Himalayan winter life. The life lessons the village taught us over the years are the reason why we’ve created this blog.
