Walking The Himalayas – Levison Wood (2016)

 ❤️❤️💔

 British Army Officer Levison Wood’s travelogue reads like an adventure novel. Wood writes that he has often felt that he was born 100 years too late, as he enjoys exploring, climbing, meeting new peoples and immersing in new cultures. One of several walks that Wood has done, including the Nile, Madagascar and Iraq. The Himalayas introduces the reader to a unique cast of characters, while also immersing them in the thoughts of the solitary man. The book opens with a riot in Kathmandu, moves through Wood’s desire for a simpler life, travelling through Afghanistan, meeting the Dalai Lama, a near fatal car crash, and finally, emerging through the Himalayas, at Everest. Part Indiana Jones, part inspirational quote book, Wood is a unique writer of travel journalism. 304 pages pass quickly while following Wood’s often harrowing journey. #walkingthehimalayas #levisonwood #travel #nonfiction #adventure #explore #afghanistan #bhutan #nepal #india #pakistan #dalailama #walk #journalism #britisharmy #inspire #book #bookstagram #books #bookstagrammer #read #reading #2016 #kalidesautelsreads
