Day 19 – Final Day in India

We had a great sleep-in then headed straight to the apparently world-famous breakfast buffet. Derek had read about it before, but I had no idea what to expect. It was nothing like anything I'd ever seen before. There was every sort of breakfast food you would ever want. I wished I had a bigger stomach.… Continue reading Day 19 – Final Day in India

Day 18 – Luxury Lad… Luxury

Before heading back to Delhi, we had a big bucket list item to scratch off the list while in Kathmandu. We had a flight to see Mount Everest. The flight left at 7 am.

Day 13 – The birthplace of Buddha

We woke up in Butwal to an amazing view from our hotel room. We could see the mountains in the distance, the sunrise, and we had a great view overlooking the city. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was like dinner. Food was good (although a bit cold) and disorganized. We all pre-ordered our food the… Continue reading Day 13 – The birthplace of Buddha
