The time has come to leave Nepal and even though I was annoyed that my Indian visa issues kept me from my to yoga course, it still meant I had some extra time to spend in Kathmandu. The icing on the cake was that I got to hang out at the best hostel in Kathmandu - Alobar1000 where I met some really amazing people in the past week. I have stayed there over and over again throughout my time in Kathmandu and have an amazing experience each and very time.
I am sad to leave Kathmandu and all the people there but I know that I will be back again some day to do heaps more trekking and revisit friends. Nepal is somewhere I hold dear to my heart and I love everything it had to offer- the sheer kindness of the people, the absolute beauty of the scenery, the amazing food, the history and of course the feeling you get trekking deep in the Himalayas. It is somewhere I am wondering why I never came before, but now know that I was meant to about at this time in my life. As I was writing this blog, I had just been seen off at the airport by a few of my new friends from Alobar 1000. We grabbed a bunch of beer and packed ourselves into the cab only to arrive at the airport and notice my flight was delayed even more. We spent an hour or so drinking, laughing and having fun outside the airport (we weren't allowed in unless flying) until I finally left and went through security. My friend Om who we had just missed on the Annapurna circuit had given me a special good luck gift before hand and I had spent the night before in the company of some very awesome people, drinking, playing silly games and laughing like I haven't laughed in ages! The sequence of events went down very nicely and it will encourage me to revisit Nepal and Alobar once again, sooner rather than later.
There is no doubt in my mind that I will return to Nepal and continue trekking the worlds highest mountain ranges and I just hope that every traveller out there makes the time (as much time as possible) to visit this wonderful country. It has a special kind of air about it and it is most definitely up there with some of thebestcoingriws iv ever seen. Nepal, Dhanybhad for everything, I will not forget my experience there.
