It was during this time that he undertook the 2700-kilometer trek that forms the basis of his new book, Into the Heart of the Himalayas. In 2000 he took a position with the Nobel-prize winning humanitarian relief organization Medecins Sans Frontieres and he spent five years managing medical projects in war zones in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nepal. While working in the Nepali civil war he met his wife Trish and with her he moved to Australia where they now live with their two beautiful boys.
