How much do you know about Central Asia?  The highest mountain is Ismoil Somoni standing at 7495 metres. It is the 50th highest mountain in the world and is more than 3 times higher than Australia’s Mt. Kosciuszko and twice as high as NZ’s Mt Cook. I leave in just over a week. I will be spending time with friends from Australia there. Please email me for a more detailed description of what I expect. After a couple weeks there, I have 3 days in Mumbai, India and then a week in Chiang Mai, Thailand visiting good friends Dan and Xan.

Where are you going this year? What plans do you have for travel? Whether it be in your state, your country or further afield, what is your attitude towards travel? I encourage you to experience and learn more of the world you are in. Travel not just for holiday, and not just for the sake of increasing knowledge or life experiences. But to learn about yourself, to learn about your human brothers and sisters.


Last week I received a postcard from Ukraine and had a good chat on Skype with a friend. I am really looking forward to spending 3 months back in Ukraine from June to the end of August later this year.


To Nat for a postcard from the beautiful city of Lviv – you made my day!

Love Jono - Keep looking up
