Montage Monday: Nepal

Take a walk down memory lane with me on this three-photo montage highlighting my best memories from past travels!

It was a gorgeous day to be kayaking in Phewa Lake in Pokara. Unfortunately, kayaking proved to be more difficult than I had imagined and I ended up going around and around in circles instead of in a straight path! Frustration, as you can imagine, ensues.

Matt and I are all smiles during the first day of trekking the Annapurna Circuit. Check out the gorgeous mountains of the Himalayas behind us! What an unbelievable place to be trekking! Unfortunately, 9 hours later and no lunch turns our smiles upside down into frowns.

We made it to Thorung La Pass! At a height of 5,416 meters (or 17,769 feet), breathing was a challenge, not to mention the cold temperature and high winds that made it a hard climb.  It was definitely a hard day of trekking but the sense of accomplishment was immense. Matt and I were very proud of ourselves! Now, we just have to survive the trek down from Thorung La...

  1. This was such an awesome experience. Probably the hardest thing I've ever done, but the views were all worth it.

    Where shall we trek next?

  2. @Matt Great experience and amazing views, definitely! I suspect the next place we trek to will be the welfare office since I'm having so much trouble finding a job in Hong Kong... =(

  3. What an amazing experience. Congrats on finishing the trek! (I should add kayaking to my bucket list....)

  4. @ramblinbess It was indeed a proud moment. Yes, try kayaking! It's fun, even if you're literally going around in circles! And it's a great workout for your arms.
