Show Notes: Ep # 92 It’s Only the Himalayas – Tales from an Overconfident Backpacker
About the Episode
If you were going to trek the Himalayas, how much time would you spend preparing? Could you imagine showing up with little to no idea of what you’re getting into? That’s the story you’ll hear today plus the lessons learned that you can apply to your now Himalayas.
Today’s guest is the author of It’s Only the Himalayas.
It’s Only The Himalaya’s
Sue, a disenchanted waitress, embarks upon a year-long quest around the world with her friend, Sara—who’s exasperatingly perfect. Expecting a whimsical jaunt of self-discovery, Sue instead encounters an absurd series of misadventures that render her embarrassed, terrified, and queasy (and in a lot of trouble with Philippine Airlines).
Whether she’s fleeing from ravenous lions, dancing amid smoking skulls, trekking Annapurna underprepared, or (accidentally) drugging an Englishman, Sue’s quick-witted, self-deprecating narrative might just inspire you to take your own chaotic adventure.
