Hope last week was filled with love and happiness and travelling for you. It was for me! Plus, I finally learned that the L in “salmon” is silent, so my life is complete now. 
I am getting ready to spend a week in Bhutan, organised by the awesome people at Triip.me. I even bought sporty shoes for the occasion! I know, I know - so unlike me to go on such an active trip… which is exactly why I’m so excited to go. Are you going anywhere nice this year? Why don’t you drop me an email at g.cianseren@gmail.com and see if I can help with any tips or intros.
You’ll hear from me soon enough about Bhutan, but let’s move on to more interesting things. Special guest of the week: Asim and the travelling pillow.

Alternative travel advice from Asim: travel with your own down pillow. “The premise is that the larger suitcase stays in base cities, while the small carry-on can accompany me on any short journeys. It’s a modular set-up optimized for multiple climates and countries (from Middle East to LatAm) where I can mix and match to optimize for budget flights. So far, I’ve not paid any extra baggage (India is pretty flexible), but for most treks, I just keep the small carryon.
The pillow is an easy one. It never incurs any added baggage fees, and adds a layer of down feathers between me and the elements on long flights, whether Indian trains or Cambo busses.”
A book that inspired me to go to Bhutan is Falling Off The Map by Pico Iyer. It’s a collection of stories about lonely places of the world - Bhutan is one of them. 
Shoutout to my friends Fabian & Ale back in Italy working on a product that makes the smartphone lifecycle more sustainable. If you have an old iPhone you’re not using, you might want to check Ricompro out and get $$$ to get rid of your old/broken phone. 
One of the things I enjoy the most is good food. This article describes the quest of Mr Stolzoff to reclaim his meals… and it’s working. Maybe you should reclaim your meals too? I’m always happy to have lunch with people. Even if it’s over Facetime. 
As usual, you can follow my adventures on Instagram or Swarm (yes, it’s still a thing). 
Until next time, 
G
