    Die Reise geht weiter

    December 6, 2018 in Nepal ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Mein letzter Tag in Nepal ist angebrochen.
    Gestern und heute gab es nochmal Momos und Dal bhat zum Abschied. Inzwischen traue ich mich auch in versteckte Dachterrassen- und Hinterhof Restaurants, die ein Tourist auf den ersten Blick vermutlich nicht findet. Ich habe sie in meinen ersten Tagen jedenfalls nicht wahrgenommen. Hier geht es sehr nepalesisch zu und vorallem ist es sehr günstig (-;

    Ich bin bereit für den Abflug nach Australien zu meiner lieben Freundin Kerstin und ihrem Mann Dave. Ich freue mich auf die Zeit und auf den Sonnenschein.

    Klangschalen Shopping in Kathmandu

    December 5, 2018 in Nepal ⋅ 🌫 16 °C

    Ich bin zurück in Kathmandu, der Hauptstadt von Nepal.
    Inzwischen ist die Hauptsaison vorbei und es sind deutlich weniger Touristen unterwegs hier.
    Außerdem ist es wirklich kalt geworden, ca.10 - 12 Grad nachts. Das Hotel liegt in einem schattigen Innenhof, so dass es wirklich sehr kalt ist in dem Zimmer. Ich schlafe mit Jacke und 2 Decken, verlasse das Hotel morgens mit Daunenjacke und dicken Wandersocken. Tagsüber wärmt mich die Sonne noch bei angenehmen 19 Grad,T-shirt-Wetter. Das tut gut.

    Heute habe ich mit Ausdauer, Gefühl und Bedacht meine 7 Ckakra Klangschalen ausgewählt und gekauft. Ich habe auf alte, handgemachte bowls gesetzt. Alten Klangschalen sagt man besondere spirituelle Energien nach.
    Ich kann also zuhause direkt loslegen mit der Entspannungstherapie oder auch singing bowl healing. Anmeldungen nehme ich ab sofort an (-;

    Namasté Nepal!

    March 19, 2018 in Nepal ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Our arrival to Nepal was quite overwhelming, it felt like entering a new world after such a long time in quasi uninhabited Oman. Flying has probably become a too fast way to change countries for us. It took us three hours then to get our bikes ready - in front of the airport building and under the wide eyes of a throng of rubbernecks :)

    Cycling into the city was intense, chaotic left-hand traffic, so many people, so many colors, colorful women (again at last!) everywhere! There were so many impressions hailing down on us, the social and environmental issues directly jumping into our eyes (and noses). We immediately knew it: A new adventure would begin here, in Kathmandu, and we’re super excited about the next weeks, Namasté!

    Morning of bliss at Dwarika's Resort

    October 18, 2017 in Nepal

    Starting with sun rise, then yoga followed by breakfast on terrace with stunning views. Time in the Himalayan Salt House then the Crystal House. Meandered around the stunning grounds before resting by the infinity pool. Photos don't to justice to this amazing place.

    Kathmandu!

    March 28, 2018 in Nepal

    We stayed at Pushkar Shah’s house (for 10 days) which is full of cyclists throughout the year. He’s been on a mystical journey for peace around the world with his bicycle, promotes cycling and fights for bicycle lanes nowadays. There were many other crazy riders too and it was great to spend time together and share experiences.

    We went around a lot, guided and unguided, and there are temples, stupas and other holy places everywhere and in all sizes, in the trees, in the walls, in the pavement, at the surrounding hills. We watched the cremations taking place at some temples next to the rivers - with very mixed feelings.
    We visited one of the holiest pilgrims sites for Buddhists in the world - the Boudhanath stupa and the holy atmosphere there are mesmerizing.

    It’s easy to notice all the opulent dogs, pigeons and monkeys who love to stay around the temples because the people usually offer sacrifice in form of rice, biscuits and other sweets - and feeding them is positive for the karma :)

    And: Fit in cycling does not mean fit in yoga... We used our lazy time to do some yoga lessons in the mornings. We found an ashram round the corner where the locals go and enjoyed this authentic experience although it was painful during the yoga and painful the days after (every little muscle hurt!). But again and again a perfect start into the day before breakfast.

    There are also some good news for our further journey (and this is also the main reason why we stayed that long in this crazy city): After 4 visits to the Indian embassy we eventually got our visa, yeah!

    Trekking the Annapurna Circuit

    April 10, 2018 in Nepal

    It all started with us squeezing into a bus fully packed with excited hikers, backpacks and some locals sitting on the lap of the driver. 4 hours in squatting position in the aisle were already kind of proving our endurance, but this shouldn’t stop us :)

    We started trekking the Annapurna Circuit in Besisahar at about 800m through a
    peaceful, green landscape, along a river full of water, rushing waterfalls, over scary suspension bridges into a deep valley with steep slopes, rice paddies, and charming little villages where little more details waited to be discovered. Women working in the fields, doing laundry, cooking; men smashing rocks or processing wood; colorful Tibetan prayer flags, banana trees, piles of firewood.

    We learned that the lodge owners start making their offers in the afternoon, rooms are usually for free if you eat dinner and breakfast there, a fair deal everywhere on the circuit!

    The first days on the trek definitely raised our appetite for more hiking and the following days should become even more beautiful...
