Where to start?

Me and Eleri have been in Nepal for about 10 days now and have done a silly amount of things so it’s hard to know where to start.  First off all our Delhi to Kathmandu bus was a nightmare, and decided to take a bit of Eleri’s nose off.

When we arrived in Thamel, we quickly left again to paddle the river Trishuli.  Eleri had fun in the raft, while I was safety boating. It is Monsoon so the river was really high, a great test for me as I havn’t been on big water for a year now.

After three days on the river we headed for some wildlife action in Chitwan national park. Doing an Elephant Safari is highly recommended!

We are now in Pokhara, having just spent the day doing all the sights and riding around the town on a moped.

We are about to go and do the Jomson trek which is in the Annapurna range, which I am told was higher than Everest only a mere 700,000 years ago.  It should take a week and hopefully will provide us with some much needed exercise.

    I rather think you meant to start with “Eleri and I”.

    Kind regards,
