For years now I've been obsessed about seeing the world, yet only touched a few countries in Europe. Now, I am finally about to explore Nepal and the Himalayas in all their stunning glory. Follow me on my journey :)

    1st full day :)

    December 6, 2017 in Nepal ⋅ 🌙 11 °C

    Had an awesome sleep. Woke up about 8am to the sight of a semi naked Canadian, I could get use this hostel lark!

    Went for breakfast which comprised of mango juice, tea, fried eggs, toast with honey and porridge with banana, was delicious and filling, not bad for $3 a night!

    Decided today to go to the monkey temple (Bodhnath Stupa), pretty awesome to see monkeys free roaming. There are an agonising 365 steps to get to the temple but the rewards are awesome!

    Whilst there I met a couple of local guys called Lama and Suraj who showed me around the temple and told me lots of history about the Buddha and Buddhists. I was also given access to a family rooftop to take panoramic photos of Kathmandu Valley and was created by my first glimpse of the Himalayas.

    We then went to see some more sights and had nepal tea before being sandwiched between them on the back of Suraj’s moped for a life back down.

    I've arrived!

    December 5, 2017 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    After not sleeping the night before this flight seems to have took forever. Finally made it to Kathmandu!

    Now I’ve seen many video saying how hectic it was and thought I was prepared but no, I cannot describe the mayhem on the roads here. Cars, buses, bikes and people and mixed together but surprisingly no one gets hit.

    Checked into my hostel and surprised to find that my dorm of five is only me and a guy from Quebec.

    Decided to go out and check out the local area, again very hectic and I intone it will be easier to do in daylight so I just had a local dish called Dal Baht which was delicious, had a few drinks and headed back to the hostel.
