Twenty years in the making…Bhutan had been our list since mid 1990s.  But, I just started a new job in Hong Kong and there was no way I could take a vacation….so we waited. While waiting, we got married, we moved to New York, he went to grad school, we had to two children and moved back to Hong Kong.  Now our kids are 10 and 12….but we made it.

Steeped in tradition, religion and ceremony, Bhutan and Nepal are beautiful and wonderfully cultural.  They are neither rich or material but will save all they have to honour Buddhism.   

Mantra is a simple spiritual journey with earthy stones and ceremonial shapes and reflection.
