It’s been the usual’ before a expedition: Preparation. Times my great 10 participants. Times 10 more experiences! We’ve had a busy day in Kathmandu and now we’re leaving to do one of the world’s most spectacular flights; Kathmandu to Lukla at 2800m to start one of the most beautiful hikes in the world. We are all looking forward to change the smog and stuffy air towards the thin fresh air higher up. After the ‘warm up hike’ to Everest base camp we are going to climb a ‘real’ mountain; The trekking peak Island peak, 1689m, a beautiful little mountain situated like a island in a glacier.
We’re going to have bits and pieces of internet so I’ll update family, friends an followers on the way. (I like to be able to share photos and experiences on the way, but I also liked it the first time I was here over 10 years ago – there was no wifi up there, but another kind of connection ;-)
