Off the grid for 27 days
This is just a super quick post to let everyone know I am safe and arrived safely in Nepal.
Tomorrow morning 6 am I leave for a 27day trek to Mt. Everest basecamp. The past 2 days have been super busy with preparing for the trek – organzing insurance papers for my guide, buying trekking permit, equipment, medicine – all sorts of logistics. Actually one of the trickier issues has been money – it is not easy to withdraw large amounts of money here in Nepal. I am happy that I brought several credit cards – that makes things a lot easier.
First impressions: Nepal may be one of the absolute poorest countries in the world – but they are still stellar in hospitality!
I can’t believe I am finally here. It is an overwhelming and quite scary feeling. Actually glad I have been busy with logistcs, otherwise I think I would have been to busy overthinking things, missing friends, family and loved ones.
I will be off the grid for 27 days if everything goes accordingly to plan (hope the altitude sickness doesnt get to me).
I am off to bed now, as the adventure starts tomorrow morning 6am.
Greetings from the rooftop of the world 🙂
