NOMAD OF THE WEEK: BLYTHE HARRIS BLYTHE HARRIS: TRAVELING STYLE
  What is the first trip you ever took on your own?
 I dropped out of college for a semester to travel throughout Southeast Asia and Nepal.
While I was there, I learned how to Kayak on a river trip in Nepal and trekked to the base of Mt Everest.
Later on, I traveled to Ecuador by myself and lived with a family of weavers in Otavalo. We all slept on their dirt floor! I also lived with a tribe in Orissa, India, with the non-profit Tribal Cry in 2003.
 
What has been the most awe-inspiring moment you’ve experienced while traveling?
Hiking off-piste in the Swiss Alps and skiing down into Italy was incredible.
