Aer Turas (Air Journey)

Travelling in Asia, America and Australia gave me uplifting experiences of air in mountains and deserts.

In the 1980s I visited Leh, at 3,500 metres in Ladakh, once a part of Tibet. From there I travelled through the Himalayas and visited several Buddhist monasteries, some like eagle's nests on cliffs above the snowline. The monks chanted their prayers inside, and blew alpine trumpets outside. A monk said these prayers would travel all around the world.

Twenty years later my husband John and I travelled to the Appalachian Mountains that stretch for 2,400 km from Newfoundland, Canada, south to Alabamba, America. We enjoyed the invigorating air at Mount Washington in New Hampshire, at 1,917 metres. There hurricane force winds blow for 110 days of the year. We were lucky that it wasn't so windy that day, but it was certainly fresh.

In the MacDonnell Ranges, Central Australia, the air felt lively, as we walked through a desert brought to life by rain with flowers and plants. In the Woollemi National Park in New South Wales there is uplifting and a colourful wilderness. The air holds a breathtaking feeling of suspended time.
