Schoolies Alternative Adveture

AUSTRALIA | Fri, 3 Feb 2017 | By jemma_scott | Views [381] | Video

Life after school; a time to reflect on twelve years of friendships; made and lost, of hard work and unquestionable bouts of procrastination, and what felt like prolonged drudgery in those last remaining months. High school is a truly memorable ... Read more >

Back in Kathmandu!

NEPAL | Tue, 22 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [310]

We're back safe and sound in the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu - constantly blazing horns, dusty roads, crowds of locals and tourists, and Nepali men trying to earn a quick rupee from five seconds of playing their traditional fiddle and calling it "Nepali ... Read more >

Lukla

NEPAL | Mon, 21 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [311]

Altitude: 2886m.  Last day of trekking - done and dusted! Woohoo! I have just had my weekly shower, a few days overdue. I got to wash my hair and scrub some of the dry extra-tanned patches of my face. I'm feeling pretty good. We might even ... Read more >

Lobuche

NEPAL | Wed, 16 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [370]

Altitude: 4940m.  We have made it here after an arduous walk up and across some very snowy terrain. Today was, without a doubt, the toughest slog after Tok Tok. The trail seemed almost endless, completely surrounded with white for hours and beyond.... Read more >

Pheriche

NEPAL | Tue, 15 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [391]

Altitude: 4270m. This is the highest I've ever been! And I'm only going to continue climbing! We treaded through some snow (and slush) to get here. Thankfully, even with the recent weather and the conditions it's caused, it's been an alright day.... Read more >

Debuche

NEPAL | Mon, 14 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [1294]

Altitude: 3700m. We're at our first stop after Namche so I guess there's no turning back. It's only onward towards Everest Base Camp! It's been "PISSING" down like crazy today and I'm fully surprised that I, a true rain-hater, made it here without ... Read more >

Namche Bazar

NEPAL | Sun, 13 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [403]

    Altitude: 3440m. Woohoo! We are finally here! Although it isn't all that we hyped it out to be, (being one of the largest places on the trek), it is great to know we made it. It feels absurd to recall that only a week ago, it felt ... Read more >

Surkhe

NEPAL | Thu, 10 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [524]

Altitude: 2400m Thank goodness we're not at Phakding today! Our initial plan was to walk all the way up to Phakding to give us more time to play with, but it would've been an insanely long day. Getting here from Bupsa good enough for the day. As expected, ... Read more >

Junbesi

NEPAL | Sun, 6 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [604]

Altitude: 2675m. I reached a low point yesterday. A very low one. We decided to make tracks away from Lamjura La and head here. Before leaving, I felt full of energy and enthusiasm, optimistic that my knee would have completely recovered with a ... Read more >

Bus to Jiri

NEPAL | Mon, 30 Sep 2013 | By joannawong | Views [1387]

Altitude: 1951m We woke up early today to catch the bus to Jiri where we'll start our trekking adventure to Everest Base Camp. We're doing it a little different to most who usually just fly into Lukla and start the trek from there. We're walking in ... Read more >

My Scholarship entry - Understanding a Culture through Food

NEPAL | Wed, 4 Apr 2012 | By lou_hebert | Views [1260] | Scholarship Entry

“Momos, fries and a Coke,” was the only English spoken as the Yolmo innkeeper shuffled around collecting dinner orders in this dark and smoky teahouse. I surveyed the other groups clad in patchwork and Gortex as they squinted at guidebooks and maps ... Read more >
