Travels in Nepal

In December 2005 I experienced my first trip overseas. I had a few days in Thailand on my way to join my daughter on a trek in the Himalayas in Nepal during January.

While overseas I wrote extensively in my journal, recording my adventures and impressions of the country and the people. I also took many hundreds of photos.

Below is a compilation of the articles with photos I have posted on this blog about my visit to Nepal. Click on the title to read the article of interest to you.
