Bhutan, Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon – Janet Samber
A journey through this fabled land nestled in the Himalayas, traversing the country from West to East, visiting small farming communities, experiencing the ceremonial splendour of religious festivals, and wandering through the traditional weaving villages of the east, one comes to an appreciation of this culture in which which the gross national happiness is measured rather than the gross national product.

This concluded a 9500 km. cross Canada journey started in Victoria BC in 2007. They began the trip accompanied by their 109 pound Alaskan Malamute Taq, and concluded it 6 years later with Taq, plus two infant children ,Jude age 3 and Rane, 9 months, also in tow.
Originally from Orillia Ontario (Geoff) and Whitehorse (Pamela), the couple now make Calgary their home. Treks and Travels is extremely fortunate to have this celebrated couple join us to share pictures and stories of their great adventure.
