This time.. Nepal!

22 February 2015

Today I walked through three districts of Kathmandu. The most famous for respectively Hindus, Buddhists and backpackers. It was a long but nice walk, where we got away from the aggressive traffic and saw more of the everyday life. Hindu funerals, one of the biggest stupas in the world and local milktea were some of the great experiences 🌏 We saw the Garden of Dreams as well ☺️🌸 Tomorrow morning I will be on my way back to Denmark πŸ‘‹

We celebrated our achievements this evening and Nima (the guide) gave us presents! A wonderful way to say goodbye to him ☺️ Tomorrow will be my last full day here. I will go see The Garden of Dreams. Hopefully I will see the Australians again someday 🌸 πŸ‘‹πŸ’š

Finally I have wifi again! I have had an amazing time with my group! Made a lot of friends and the feeling of being done with 150 km in the mountains is so good! We went to Basecamp, but that was not enough, so a girl from my group and I went to Kalapatthar which is even higher - 5555m ☺️ It was soo hard! We began trekking at 5 in the morning. I might cried a single tear at the top. It was -20 degrees. 😁 Miss home, friends, family and boyfriend. And a shower!! πŸ˜‰

More mountains, more trekking, more friends πŸ’š Today we hang out around a fireplace with other trekkers. It was so cosy and helps you get through the cold. Because now it's snowing and I can't wait for my sleepingbag to warm up. πŸ˜΄πŸ’š

Another great day in Himalaya! Today was acclimatising day, so we only trekked for 4 hours (yesterday 9) ☺️ I've seen so many beautiful views and I have never felt more fit! πŸ˜… The afternoon went with exploring the city and having a nice time with other trekkers! I met this Italian dude, Carlo, who brought home knitted gloves for the base camp. Quess Italians doesn't know what coldness is πŸ˜… But everyone here is so happy, specially the ones on their way down! πŸ˜„ I hope everyone is enjoying themselves wherever they are in the world ❀️

Hard day but still going strong! Everything is so beautiful! ☺️ Today I finally met a dane, maybe some of you will recognise him πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ The cities are so authentic and weather is with us! Can't wait to get to the Basecamp! πŸ™Œ

9 February 2015

First day on the trek! It's very nice here. ☺️ Today I have been playing badminton with small buddhist kids (munks), flying in a VERY small flight in the mountains and trekked for three hours. πŸ™Œ Still no altitude sickness, and hopefully it stays that way πŸ˜ƒ Miss you all ❀️

So far a lovely day! I was so tired yesterday, so I got up at 11:15 πŸ˜‹ I've been in the other end of town where it's more quite, tried a taxi in the aggressive traffic (almost scared I was going to die 😱) and now I'm going to meet my group for the trek πŸ™ŒπŸ‘Œ Hope everyone is having a nice time on their trips! ☺️
