Trek of a Lifetime

Photo taken by Thirdeyemom, who experienced severe postpartum depression after the birth of her first child. It was a terrifying, isolating experience for her, which included terrible insomnia and hallucinations. Thankfully with the help of doctors and family, one week after her son’s first birthday she was able to board a plane to South Africa, resuming her love of travel. Through traveling, writing, and photography she began to see the beauty of the world again.

About this photo: “In 2010, my dad and I took a trip of a lifetime. We hiked the Annapurna Trek in Nepal, a dream of both of ours for many years. Nepal was the one trip that changed my life and lead me to a path of volunteerism and giving back. I had never seen so much beauty and so much poverty in one spot. It blew me away and made me realize how incredibly fortunate we are.”
