A Little Closer to Shangri-La. My epic journey to Lhasa, Tibet
Play • 31 min

A long awaited Bucket List item was finally fulfilled. A long trip via Shanghai (incl. a ride on the world's fastest train) and Chengdu (incl. a trip to the Panda Rehabilitation Center) in China.
Tibetan culture is unlike any other in the World. Going back in time to a region that is steeped in religion and spirituality with iconic temples and palaces is an truly epic adventure. 
Potala Palace, The Dalai Lama's residence before the uprising in 1959 was worth the trip by itself, but there is so much more to see and enjoy.
Jokhang Temple, Sera Monastery,  Drepung Monastery, Debating Monks, Stir Fried Yak, my accommodation of the House of Shambhala, Smoldering Juniper, Himalayan Mountains, and the list goes on. Memories are precious.
There's a process in getting permits and traveling there, but the information is here in this broadcast.
If you have one trip left in you, this could be it.
