About Kiersten

me and khumbu

Since 2006 I have been living in rural Andalucia in Southern Spain with my husband, Richard and our dogs and together we run a small mountain guiding business.

I have been lucky to visit many places in the world with Nepal a major highlight for me. I always had a great love of the mountains and had a wonderful friend and mentor Bob Redwood, who was taken from this world way too soon.

PatagoniaSo far I have been on 5 expeditions to the Southern Patagonia Icecap and 1 to Kamchatka (a dream come true). The Sierra Nevada mountains are my backyard and where I spend a lot of my time.

My passions are my dogs, the mountains, nature, photography.

Living a mostly outdoor lifestyle I started to delve into photography, it was a pretty natural path given the situations I often find myself in. I have a lot of failures and the odd (what I would call) successful shot, it’s a great and frustrating hobby with constant learning. I would like to thank my friends from my Facebook and Google+ for the continued support they give me.

The aim of this website is to write about my life and times during this part of my life, hopefully not bore you too much and if nothing else it is a memory for me to read about in many years to come.
