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 zerototravel.com/givenepal.

In this episode of the Zero To Travel Podcast you'll hear how one family has been living their nomad dream and how you can plan a longer bike trip with your family.
In their words, here is how Francois, Cécile and their daughter Emma describe their nomad dream:
"Living a family adventure around the world, at the slow and active pace of our touring bikes. Living our passion for climbing and outdoor activities. Being outside in the rain, the wind, under the sun and the stars. Meeting and knowing people from everywhere and sharing their daily life. Speaking spanish, french, english, russian. Stepping out of our comfort zone, forgetting our habits, putting back things into perspective. Living simply, with the bare necessities, ecologically. Reading all the pages of the book. Living our dream."
Why did they choose to do an adventure cycle tour?
"Because we just don’t imagine any other way of traveling. Simple, convenient, active and ecological, cycle touring is for us the perfect way to travel at a human pace to take time to embrace sceneries, atmospheres, silence. Exposed to all winds, bike touring is also a wide open window to the world and a unique visa to meet other people."
