Kathmandu to Colombo (via Mumbia)

Mumbai, India Conclusion of my Nepali mini adventure. Nepal is beautiful. Nepali produce and people are... More preferable in my opinion, than India's... India trumped Nepal in relation to flavour of food... I'd be lying if I said I hadn't dreamt about having gulub jamun for dessert (Google it), every night since leaving India. If/...

Kathmandu, Nepal The visibility had decreased significantly as I drove out of Pokhara.

A 20km drive from Kathmandu City via Bhaktapur and I'm in Changu to check out the oldest temple in Kathmandu Valley, the Changu Narayan Temple. Unlike all the temples I've ever been to, there's not a... Continue Reading →

Flying into Nepal
