Draped along the spine of the Himalaya, Nepal is a land of sublime scenery, time-worn temples, and some of the best hiking trails on earth. It's a poor country, but it is rich in scenic splendour and cultural treasures. The kingdom has long exerted a pull on the Western imagination. It's the kind of country that lingers in your dreams long after you leave it. This is why so many travellers are drawn back to Nepal, armed the second time round with a greater appreciation of its natural and cultural complexity, a stout pair of walking boots and a desire for sculpted calf muscles.

Dirty talk

Wed, 6 Jun 2018 | By debbieprince | Views [359]

One of the things that I was warned against was that I would get diarrhea. Before I left home I want to the travel center and got some preventative medicine. You take one before each meal. I was careful about not eating at roadside stands. Occasionally ... Read more >

Remember  those dark days before the internet?  Being on the Annapurna Circuit is like that. WiFi is sketchy and slow at best. Some days you will have long hours and nothing to do. I'm very glad I had my tablet which has games you can play ... Read more >

Going back to Nepal after 3 years was interesting to say the least. I had forgotten how sick I had gotten there the last time, and this time was no different in that department.  So much has changed but yet so much has remained the same, they have ... Read more >
