Nepal in Pictures


I’m back from my ultimate bucket list trip to Nepal, and I have to say…it was pretty much everything I hoped it would be. I even made it back in almost one piece! More on that in a few photos. I will be doing quite a few posts about my trip with lots of different photos in each one, so check them all out! In the mean time, here are some photos to whet your appetite. Follow me on Instagram for even more!

Allison, me, and Bobbi after arriving in our starting village after a long and bumpy 8 hour drive from Kathmandu! I met these lovely ladies back when I lived in Columbia and we used to run for Team in Training together. Although I originally booked my trip solo, I was lucky enough to convince them to tag along later! Gear: KUHL Mova Skinny Pants and Airkraft Shirt


If you thought you weren’t going to see a million pictures of adorable Nepali children, you were sadly mistaken. This little girl was the sweetest!



In the village of Chalish, where we stayed in the home of our guide’s parents! Absolutely amazing experience – and the best food I had on the whole trip, which is saying something. Gear: KUHL Firefly Hoody Jacket and Mova Skinny Pants
Home destroyed by the 2015 earthquake. While we definitely saw a lot of damage, Nepal is ready for tourists and the damage won’t impact your experience.
It was freezing outside but I’m still high maintenance enough about my hair to wash it in freezing cold water and risk pneumonia. Gear: KUHL Mova Skinny Pants
Eating home made dal bhat in our guide’s parents’ home! We even attempted to eat with our hands like real Nepali. Spoiler alert: it did not go well. Gear: KUHL Firefly Hoody Jacket
One of many scenic river crossings and waterfalls
I mean, stop it. Stop it right now. (Yes, Angry Birds were a popular clothing choice for some reason)
When you’re trying to look casual in Kathmandu but the cast on your broken hand makes everything awkward. Oh yes, I broke my hand on this trip. We’ll get there in another post. Gear: KUHL Airkraft Shirt and Mova Skinny Pants

Monkeys at the famous Monkey Temple in Nepal!


Posing at a local house. The back was ripped off by the earthquake, but the front was still beautiful.
Yeah, I’d say this was a pretty good trip.

More to come this week! Stay tuned!

  1. I’m so happy for YOU that it was everything you had hoped it would be. I studied each and every picture you posted in the album on FB and just soaked it all in! I seriously cannot believe the beauty, the cuteness of that kid and the pain of you breaking your bones over this!!! Seriously, though, just amazing and I cannot wait to see and read more. Glad you are home safe, although slightly damaged 🙂

    1. Thanks, Allie! It was truly amazing and I am so glad it lived up to all my expectations. Honestly, I should probably just start adding in the expectation of a major injury because, let’s be honest.

  2. Welcome back! a) I can’t believe the trip is over! October kind of flew by for me, so I lost track of time. b) that last picture is everything c) WHAT DID YOU DO TO YOURSELF
    Also… Angry Birds?

    1. Yes, very odd…Angry Birds is huge there, and I have no idea how or why. It’s not like there were TVs in most of the villages so I honestly don’t know. It was hilarious!

  3. Whoa – I was looking through and saw that one pic and thought “weird sleeve, looks more like …” and then read the description! Oh no! Glad you got to enjoy the trip in spite of broken hand. Sure it will be a great story for another post 🙂

    Love the pictures – and the children you meet on trips outside of the US are just amazing – so open and honest and curious! Can’t wait to hear more!

    1. I find that kids naturally gravitate towards you when you have a camera. They love to see pictures of themselves! That’s my strategy for getting them to hang around and let me take all those cute pictures 🙂

    1. Hahaha post to come about that next week! It’s hard to summarize a trip like this. Like, where do I even start?

    1. Hahaha, no post yet! It’s not a terribly exciting story, just looks cool in pictures. I’ll be talking about it next week!

      Yes, it is one of the most beautiful and surprising places I’ve ever been!

    1. Thank you, Art! I like to think my life is sort of a wordless travel brochure. That’s the goal, anyway!
