It is that time of year again when I begin to think about our Colourful Journey in November. Bishnu and I have never advertised as such and so far, nearly all the travellers have come because they’ve liked what they’ve heard from past trippers! The right people always seem to come. Each group has been special. And no two journeys have been the same.
And from this point on I had a post already written and was just going to add photos. But then I received an email from one of last year’s travellers that made me think Shut up Wendy and let some one else say something! So I will:
…although I had been to Nepal many times, this was the most exhilarating experience. I travelled with interesting women, who shared their lives with each other, found out what fascinates them and keeps them going. Their vitality, their tolerance and humour rubbed off and I gained new insights and understanding. I had fun, found a new sense freedom and achievement, and realised that age is not a barrier to new opportunities.
Then there was the journey itself. It was certainly a most colourful journey, the colours of the landscape, the brightness of the clothing and the opportunity to meet Nepali people was a unique feature of this trip.
This trip took us out of Kathmandu and helped us appreciate some of the difficulties the terrain itself presents and the resourcefulness of many inhabitants...
If you think this sounds like it could be your sort of trip, get in touch with me now! You can read more about the trip here and here. If you think you know someone who would love this trip, send them this post!
(Thanks to Carol and someone from 2012-could even be me-for photos!)
