At the age of 67 and with her injured husband at home, Patti Shales Lefkos sets off to Nepal on what would her first solo trip. She documents her experiences, which included volunteering at a high altitude school and taking off on a month-long trek in the Himalayas, in her book Nepal One Day at a Time.
Patti joins me on the podcast today to talk about high-altitude senior trekking, volunteering, and also about the complications of self-publishing and marketing a book during the pandemic.
