Even though the Mount Everest Expedition is over for this year, have I no plans of going home to Norway for a while. I am actually planning to stay in Nepal until the end of july. I have been so lucky and got the opportunity to rent a beautiful flat in the Tibetan area Boudha through a friend of a friend. I like it so much here. I actually like it so much that I could easy settle down here for a longer period.
Even though the expedition was canceled had I a good time in the mountains for as long as it lasted. I just LOVE to spend time up in the Himalayas. On our way up to Everest Base Camp did we follow the classical route that trekkers follow when they go on a Everest Base Camp trek. In this blog will I share with you some of the pictures I took on the way.
I have some projects that I am working on while I am here in Nepal. One of them is a meditation trek I will arrange next easter together with Ellen Johannesen. Ellen is my yoga teacher here in Kathmandu. She is from Norway but lives in Kathmandu and am working on a Bachelor degree in Buddhism. We will arrange the trek in another area than Everest. In the near future will I go and have a look at the area we want to use for the meditation trek. Are you interested in getting more information about the trek, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
