Having lived in Nepal some years, my focus is on sustainable tourism. I currently work as an auditor for Travelife (hotels and travel agents) and coach, supporting travel agents in several countries to become Travelife partners and to become certified. Previously I have written reviews for Travel to Care on the hotels and travel companies in Nepal that try to run sustainably (environmental/cultural/social). I also run Rural Assistance Nepal, a small private charity that supports a few salaries for teachers and a nurse. I am keen to support community-based tourism in Nepal and have visited many of these in an advisory capacity, travelling extensively all over the country.
Connecting to share good ideas on making tourism more sustainable.
Nepal and France, India and then Asia, but anywhere really!
