Good episode? Give it some love!
This episode of the Zero To Travel Podcast is a very special one.

On April 25th 2015, Nepal was hit by the biggest earthquake it has experienced in 80 years. Thousands of people have died and many more are seriously injured and in need of basic supplies such as food, water, and shelter.

Last October, my wife and I went to Nepal, to go trekking in the Himalayan mountains. Everywhere we went, we were greeted with warm smiles and open hearts. We particularly bonded with our guide Samir, and our porter Mingmar.

In this episode of the podcast, my wife Anne-Dorthe and I share both our memories of Nepal and some audio clips of Samir as he showed us around his country.

This episode is also a fundraiser. Nepal needs our help. If you're in the US, please text "GIVE NEPAL" to 80088 to donate $10 to the Global Giving relief fund. If you want to give more or you're based outside of the US, please go to
