Even at my age, there are firsts.

When you’ve experienced everything you’re ever going to experience, it’s time to write: THE END.

…said I, although I’m probably not the first!

I’m back home after an amazing trip to China and Tibet. I’ve posted my photos and videos on Facebook, which must mean I’m well and truly back, and you’re welcome to view them, whether or not you’re a friend of mine there.

Today, I’m thinking about firsts. Yes, even at my age, there are firsts.

The first time I went to China. The first time I went to Tibet. The first time I slept nearly 4,000 metres above sea level. The first time I climbed to almost 5,000 metres. My first plane ride in which the air pressure was increased as we took off. The first video I created for one of my books:

I hope you enjoyed that. And don’t forget, this is the place to buy Cultivating a Fuji.

It’s always interesting to realize that when you thought you’ve seen it all, done it all, and heard it all, a “first” comes along to stir things up.

I hope you had a wonderful time on your trip 🙂

It sounds like a lot of firsts and that’s great. It sounds like you had a wonderful time. One is never too young to have a first, and it’s great to read your enthusiasm for trying new things. Keep it up!

Hopefully we all have lots of firsts still in front of us! However a reminder to enjoy these experiences does not go amiss. Thanks Miriam
