Join Ellie Dias for an interactive talk with photographs and video clips about her debut novel inspired by a solo journey to the Himalayas. Her story combines personal lessons, adventure, travel, growth, and humor as she struggles to lug her 95-pound suitcase across the globe. Seeking to experience simplicity and contentment in the “Happiest Place on Earth”, Dias planned her trip of a lifetime to the nth degree. Everything that could go wrong on her spiritual journey did. It was a fiasco that left her wondering whether the Universe – via her Big Red suitcase – was trying to teach her something.
