On a wing and a prayer……………

If you ever get the chance to visit Katmandu in Nepal, please do it. Don’t hesitate for even one second – just say yes and go. It is an amazing, amazing place and over the next few days, I will share our experiences with you. Katmandu is set in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains, so the scenery is stunning – it is beyond compare.

We took a mountain flight near Mt. Everest and literally saw the top of the world. Right before we left my son said, “it’s just another mountain, why do we have to go?” Be sure that he is not saying that any more. Mt. Everest is certainly more than just another big mountain. It is spectacular. We were all blown away.

Katmandu is also the most spiritual place I have ever been.

We also visited several temples. Hinduism has over 1 million gods, so there is a lot to celebrate and pay tribute to. The Buddhists also have a very strong presence in Katmandu. And there is no shortage of holy men.

So come back tomorrow for more details  – you won’t want to miss it, I promise. Pinky swear.
