This book is for anyone who desires to travel to Tibet, be it in reality or in their dreams. Weaving together the symbolism of Tibetan Buddhism with my personal experience of the landscape and atmosphere, encounters and efforts of the journey, the text provides insight into real life conditions in Tibet.

It's also a poetic postcard to you who are looking for inspiration beyond factual description.

And it's a story about the realisation of dreams, with space between text and pictures for your own reflection. Give yourself time to read slowly and let the significance of the words sink in. Let what you find between the lines sink in. As in life itself.

Touch the pages and feel the rugged, dry mountain landscape with your fingertips.

Start by travelling in mind and soul, with your heart and senses, and see where it will bring you in real life...

To dream is to journey
beyond the borders of reality.
And to realise a dream
is to dare change.
A life condition.

Sofie Gardestedt is Swedish but lives in Brussels, where she works with European affairs. Sofie realised a long-nurtured dream in travelling to Tibet and came back inspired by the impressive, barren landscape and the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism.
