Around 1998 a group of Tibetan monks came to my small hometown in Michigan. It was a stop during their world tour to bring awareness of the Chinese occupation of Tibet. At this time I knew nothing of Buddhism or a country called Tibet! This was the midwest folks. My life was forever changed during those few days. Witnessing their dance, their songs, speaking with the monks, I was instantly mezmorized by their culture and who they were. 17 years later my ultimate dream of traveling to Tibet came true. While flipping through Instagram I came across The Land of Snows photography tour and signed up immediately. Jamin, the owner and tour guide, was incredible and someone I now call a friend. Describing my experience is too hard to put into words. It changed me. It left a mark. It still haunts me, in a good way.
