COLOMBIA | Mon, 10 Aug 2015 | By sheree | Views [446]

Namaste Nepal

We've touched down in Kathmandu! The flight in was amazing thanks to Dad's prebooking of the best seats for a view of the Himalayas. Being snowcapped, they were hard to spot at first but you could definitely see Everest and the rest of the world's youngest ... Read more >

Preparing at Home

AUSTRALIA | Sat, 31 Aug 2013 | By longawaited | Views [669]
