Women for Women Walking Retreats
​​ Why Read Before Travelling to Nepal? ​​

Our  "Women 4 Women Walking Retreats"  will be heading to Nepal in November 2019 and April 2020.

In Preparation
 There’s hardly a better way to research a country than by picking up a novel or collection of essays and learning about the place from the people who really know it.

While not much Nepali language literature is translated into English, fortunately, there are a number of excellent writers, both Nepali and international, who have astutely written about the country in English over the years.
So whether novels, poetry, short stories, political analysis or travel writing are more your thing, this list has you covered.

The Benefits of Our Online Book Club

International: We are from many countries and cities around the world and our vision is that we read and share our wide range of perspectives on the countries visited by Women4WomenWalkingRetreats, particularly to gain insights and compassion for the women of those nations.

Capturing thoughts and opinions 24/7 online. Once we have grown to a reasonable size of a dozen active members, we will set up our W4W Online Book Club Platform on what is arguably the largest online book club platform on the planet - Good Reads. Then  you will be able to write your opinions and impressions on the books of your choice 24/7. Until then, just come and enjoy the live facilitated discussions .

You Choose the Books: Unlike other Book Clubs, we don't prescribe what you read from our recommended list. You choose, purchase it from wherever you like - new soft copy using the Amazon link, or second hand, perhaps a digital Kindle download or borrow from a friend or your local shop. It's up to you. Read and share your thoughts by the last week of the month. If you find a great cultural book that's on topic for the country we are discussing, you can even add it to the book list and tell us all about it.

PLUS a Facilitated live online Book Club Forum each month: Get involved face to face on the last Thursday of each month 7.30-8.30pm via Zoom to discuss the cultural theme of that month with featured guest Brigitte Muir OAM  the first Australian woman to summit Mt Everest. Brigitte knows and loves the Nepalese people, has spent a lot of time in the country and has insights to share. Facilitated by Women's Mentor, Trainer and Coach  Juliette Robertson, these discussions will provide learning for everyone about Village life, Religion, Politics and History of this fascinating nation.

A 6 Months from April - October 2019.  We get together on the last Thursday of each month from April - September prior to some of us heading off for our next  Walking Retreat in Nepal in November 2019 . 

Grab a book. Read a book.
 then pour a glass of wine
and join us via ZOOM
for a  boots-and-all discussion
  at all our remaining online
