“I learnt that death is not something to be feared, that to face death is in fact very inspiring and uplifting. That there is much to be done to prepare for one’s own death and much to be discussed with friends and family.”

The Accidental Tourist
“What made me decide to travel with a group of people I didn't know, on a Tibetan Buddhist pilgrimage? I wasn't even a Buddhist, let alone the Tibetan kind. Every day was full of events unexpected and visually unforgettable. I think I might have to do it all again.”
Laine Langridge - pilgrim.
