Lifelong adventurers Bruce and Christine did not give up their passion for exploration once they had children; and they’ve been traveling with both kids (Bodi, 7 and Taj, 3) since they were infants. The couple saw this opportunity, their biggest journey yet, as an unforgettable learning experience, but also as a chance to unplug from technology and expose their boys to some of life’s simple wonders. The 96-day expedition ends at Karsha Gompa – a secluded cliff-side monastery in Ladakh, India, where they’ll live and work for three months with Buddhist monks. The only catch to this journey is – NO Airplanes. They’ll get to their final destination through surface travel only – canoe, container ship, ferry, high-speed train, river boat, tuk tuk, pony, their own eight feet and more. Bruce Kirkby is a wilderness guide, writer and award-winning photographer. With journeys spanning more than 80 countries and 2000 days. Bruce’s accomplishments include the first modern crossing of Arabia’s Empty Quarter by camel, a raft descent of Ethiopia’s Blue Nile Gorge by raft, sea kayak traverse of Borneo’s northern coast, and a coast-to-coast Icelandic trek. Bruce’s writing has appeared in The New York Times, EnRoute, Huffington Post, Explore and Canadian Geographic.
