  • First impressions of Kathmandu

    posted on by Erin Leeder

    Day 1- Sunday June 29 I knew this city wasn’t like anything I’ve seen before from the moment we hit the runway. The red brick and wooden-panelled airport couldn’t be further from the shiny white Bangkok airport we had left three hours earlier. The sticky humidity of summer couldn’t be more different to the cold

    posted on by Lauren Coleman

    This morning we got a real taste of the Buddhist culture here in Nepal. We visited Boudhanath, a huge Buddhist temple (called a stupa). Boudhanath is world heritage listed and possibly the most significant site for Buddhists. People travel from great distances to visit the site, and there is a large Tibetan population who live

    Right now I am sitting in Bangkok International Airport. We flew out of Kathmandu this afternoon and are waiting for the long haul flight back to Australia. This trip has been absolutely amazing.

    Pharping is a large village about an hour or so out of Kathmandu. We were lucky enough to get the chance to stay overnight there last night with a friend of Steph’s, Kabita. This second village visit was a bit more interactive – we were able to visit A School for Community (ASC) – an

  • Nepali road-tripping

    posted on by Lauren Coleman

    The bus ride back from Chitwan was intense! Heavy rain overnight had caused landslides all along the mountain road, so there was an awful lot of waiting involved. Kudos to our driver for getting us through – even the roads not affected by the rain aren’t fantastic. We were all very tired, but glad for
