Tsering Dolma Gurung (54) and her husband Silnon live primarily off their own agricultural activities. Three daughters attend the local school; the eldest daughter, however, is needed to help run the household. The family's most important possessions: sheep, yaks and horses - and now a greenhouse. A meaningful project, we believe and have financed 1 of 12 greenhouses and donated an ORION II EXTREME

Even on a small scale, or in this case on small wheels, you can experience beautiful things. Especially now, when the possibilities are limited, one wants to get out there and explore the visinity. Microadventures are the order of the day. Heading out spontaneously with limited luggage and preparation. And when it's time to sleep or a nice place to stay turns up, just set up your bivouac.
