How We Choose Our Hosts at Wheel & Anchor

Greetings from Zurich, Switzerland!

I'm en route to Paris to meet the members joining us for the first leg of our France Kaleidoscope program in Normandy, and I'm thrilled to be getting back on the road with our community.

I had the immense pleasure in the past few days of spending time with some very good friends of mine, many of whom will be hosting Wheel & Anchor trips in the weeks and months to come.

Language of Landscapes: What the Andes Have to Tell Us

People for millennia have had the power to shape rocks. What’s more interesting to wonder, in my mind, is what power do rocks have to shape a people?

Greetings from Gaschurn, Austria!

I've had my reunion with the fall this morning, waking up to a brisk 4 degrees here...quite a change from the steaming 30s of Bangkok yesterday! I'm making a brief stop here on the way to France, partly to pick up more suitable clothing 🙂

In Bangkok I was doing some site and excursion inspection in preparation for the pre-program for our Samui LiveAway in January.

Greetings from Thailand!

It's been a wonderful five weeks here - lots of friends dropping by, great food, all kinds of pieces moved ahead for future Wheel & Anchor trips, and a lot of preparation for our Samui LiveAway in January.

But, all good trips must eventually come to an end so that new ones can begin.

A Morning in Morocco

Each footfall upwards sends you slightly back again. Sand slips beneath your feet. It’s still dark, the western sky pocked with stars. As you gain ground, this sea of sand grows luminous, reflecting the gentle eastward light. The Saharan dunes come to life after a night of cold.
