I had the opportunity to go to the Kingdom of Nepal in January-1999, so I loaded up my backpack
and flew to Kathmandu.
I did a lot of research on Nepal before I went, just to give me some idea what I was getting myself
into. I thought I had it figured out before I even got there.
Everything I thought it was going to be like was wrong. It was much different than I thought, and in
all respects, better. I had a wonderful time.
So I hung out in Kathmandu for 5 days soaking up the culture and checking out all the Buddhist temples, then
flew to Pokhara, which is in western Nepal.
Pokhara was big fun! I spent three weeks traveling around the Pokhara area, and trekking up in the foothills
surrounding the town. It was really a relaxing, no stress holiday.
