    The Birth of a Big Event in a Wee Known Country

    I kinda figured from past experience that this post-big trip post would be about some personal epiphany or novel experience that went down during my recent trip to Bhutan.

    Facing Fear

Goggles in hand, I climbed down the shiny silver ladder and planted my feet at the bottom of the cage, where it skimmed the top of the water. Only five feet away was a monster of a saltwater crocodile, eyeing me….
