Above is a photo of my old boarding school St. Paul's in Darjeeling (Tibetian: "Place of the thunderbolt"). It is a very scenic town in the Himalayas, surrounded by beautiful tea gardens. Which Darjeeling is famous for. The snow capped mountain in the back is Mt. Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world rising 8,598m (~28,200 ft) above sea level, compared to Darjeeling which is only 2,300m (~7,500 ft) high. On a clear day you can see all the way to Mt. Everest which is 8,848m (~29,000 ft).

I've travelled to many different countries in several continents and one day I'll eventually get to visit all of them, before I finish my homepage. I generally collect artwork indigenous to that country, to decorate my home with and as a memento of where I've been. Everytime I visit somewhere new I have to find a new place to hang up my new decoration like the didgereedoo I have. I bought it in the Kuranda rainforests in the tropical North Queensland's coastline. Its a simple ant eaten traditional musical instrument that cost me AUS $20 from an Aborigine vendor.

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."
Mark Twain in Innocents Abroad

" ...nothing so liberalizes a man and expands the kindly instincts that nature put in him as travel and contact with many kind of people."
Mark Twain's letter to San Francisco Alta California, May 18th, 1867

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover"
Mark Twain
