Intrepid Solicitor to trek around Nepal

13th March, 2015

Aaron & Partners is waving goodbye to real estate solicitor Ruth Bowden for 3 months as she swaps property deals for teaching in Nepal.

Ruth will fly to Kathmandu at the beginning of May to spend a 3 month sabbatical teaching English to Nepalese monks. Her first two weeks will be spent learning the language and the culture, including how to make her own clothes to blend in with the local people. Ruth will live with a Nepalese sponsor family for these two weeks and will then move to live in a monastery with the monks.

When Ruth is not teaching in the monastery there will be opportunities to join the monks in meditation and prayer sessions, providing a unique insight into their fascinating culture. Ruth will also spend her time exploring the city of Kathmandu, discovering the beauty of the mighty Himalayas and searching for wildlife in the Chitwan National Park.

Ruth said of her trip: “I have never seen a truly poverty stricken area, and although I know it’s going to be hard going, I am really looking forward to this wonderful opportunity.

“In Nepal it’s important for children to speak English to give them a brighter future, and by volunteering I am contributing greatly to a child’s education and helping to give them the best start in life.”

Head of Real Estate, Simon Ellis, said “This is a fantastic chance for Ruth to see first hand what life is like in Nepal. The firm and I were more than happy to support her during this incredible experience. Although we will miss Ruth’s cheerfulness in the office until her return in August, Ruth will have a unique experience and I look forward to hearing about her adventures on her return.”

Ruth will be giving regular updates on her experience during her time in Nepal and her updated blog can be read at aarons.weareweb.space/nepal-travel-log
