Kate Benzin makes the reader realize that dreams do come true! One person found this helpful. I had to give this book 5 stars because it reminded me that I still have time to reach my dreams and goals. I can relate to the author because I grew up wanting to be a "tour guide. I am coming to a crossroads in my life this next year and the ability to travel without the need to care for a child is fast approaching and it has been weighing on my mind. I started thinking and learning about opportunities that might be able to break me from the cubical farm and this book has inspired me to think about what I WANT my life to be, instead of what I THINK my life should be.

I get that the reality of a dream can sometimes be harder than what you anticipated, but I don't want to have too many regrets as I get older and I realize that if she could do this, then maybe I can do the things I dream of. It was well written, and the personal information made this story real for me and I rooted for her the whole way through. Kate Benzin is one of my new heroes.

And live to tell the story in such an engaging and absorbing way? This account of her trek through the Himalayas well, a smallish portion of them is amazing. So many of us are pretty sure we'll never see Nepal, let alone any more of the Himalayas than that. I almost couldn't put it down, finding it "a real page-turner. I'm not adventurous in any way, shape or form. No way could I travel halfway across the globe not even knowing where I was going to stay when I arrived, or anything else.

Yet for Kate, this is her preferred method of travel! My only complaint about the book -- and it's a big one -- is that she's a good enough writer that I'd have liked to read much, much more about her fascinating experience. Even so, her experience will serve as a vivid real life reminder for me of just how much you can achieve if you set your mind to it and just go for it, whether or not you have a plan all laid out in advance.

Hmmm, I might even have to let a little adventure slip into my life. See all 48 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.

AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Aug 09, Heather rated it it was ok. I love travel and usually enjoy travel books but I found this one a bit of a struggle. First, I despise the author's style of trying to "inspire" rather than just tell her story - trying to talk directly to the reader is just clunky and doesn't work, and having someone tell you what you should get out of a book just doesn't work.

Basically this woman does not training and tries to climb in Nepal, with some success and some issues.

TRANSFORMATIVE TRAVEL IN Nepal: Fulfilling a Dream in the Himalayas - £ | PicClick UK

Her observations on how she felt each day of the trek, while mild I love travel and usually enjoy travel books but I found this one a bit of a struggle. Her observations on how she felt each day of the trek, while mildly interesting, offer nothing in particular unless you are interested in doing such a trek. Although I travel extensively, hiking in Nepal holds no interest for me. Had she told about the conversations with her guide or the local people or the history or anything other than how far she hiked each day, how she felt and where she stayed it might heave been more interesting.

This book is short and not well written - I finished it but then was kind of like "Ok, so Can't recommend it unless you have a particular interest in Nepal trekking. The whole "be inspired to pursue your dream" garbage was nauseating, and as someone who routinely checks things off my personal bucket list, I can honestly say this book was in no way inspirational to me personally and I have a hard time imagining the person who would find it so.

Oct 09, Ngdecker rated it really liked it Shelves: I have always been fascinated by this part of the world, so really enjoyed the book. It might not have been great literature, but I liked hearing a down-to-earth diary of what the author did and felt on her trek. I especially appreciated her telling how she felt she had failed when she couldn't complete the trek. I had a similar experience in Switzerland. I did complete the hike, but was last and needed some help.

She had opportunities, education and a good work ethic, but she took time to think about what she really wanted out of life and she went after it.

From creating the perfect job to following her dreams, Ms. Benzin makes the reader feel that "If I can do it anyone can," and makes one realize that all of a sudden all those hopes and dreams you have bottled up inside for years could become achievable goals. I loved the pictures in the book. Benzin's rich tapestry is multi-colored and woven with brilliant imagery, it was exciting to see the real thing. I highly recommend this uplifting read - soon you'll be revising your own bucket list - I know I am. Kate Benzin makes the reader realize that dreams do come true! One person found this helpful.

I had to give this book 5 stars because it reminded me that I still have time to reach my dreams and goals.

It was well written, and the personal information made this story real for me and I rooted for her the whole way through. Kate Benzin is one of my new heroes. Who else but a real-life hero, out of shape and overweight and older than the typical Himalayan trekker, would dare just show up in Nepal -- in off-season no less -- fully expecting everything to just work out? And live to tell the story in such an engaging and absorbing way? This account of her trek through the Himalayas well, a smallish portion of them is amazing.

So many of us are pretty sure we'll never see Nepal, let alone any more of the Himalayas than that. I almost couldn't put it down, finding it "a real page-turner. I'm not adventurous in any way, shape or form. No way could I travel halfway across the globe not even knowing where I was going to stay when I arrived, or anything else.
