Nepal – A Place Never To Forget…

Hi everyone! Well, I’m back from my travels in Nepal and I can say without hesitation that the past few weeks have been among the most incredible of my life.

As if trekking through the stunning scenery of the Himalayas for almost three glorious weeks wasn’t enough, my extended holiday was made all the most memorable by proposing to my girlfriend Vicky at the highest point of our trek (5,100m) – thankfully she said yes! Hopefully it’s not all downhill from here (before anyone makes the joke!).

Hopefully the following images will provide a taster of what was a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Seriously, if you get the chance to go to Nepal do so; you won’t regret it.

I’ll be back with the usual film review stuff very soon. Thanks as always for your support of my blog.

    Awesome location and images, Mark. You suffered attitude sickness during the trip?

      I did I’m afraid. It hit me when we went over 4,000m, got a bad headache, was exhausted most of the time, couldn’t sleep and lost my appetite for a few days. Not good! It was all worthwhile though to see those views; man they were something else.

    DUDE. congratulations are in order, methinks! What a magical place to pop the question. Truly. Those photos are breathtaking and you know what they always say, photos don’t do the real thing justice so I can’t even comprehend what it was like being there. Wowie

      Thank you brother; that means a lot! Having looked at those images again, they don’t really do it justice. They never do I guess, unless you have an amazing camera and/or are a professional photographer – neither of which I have/am! I now need to get my arse into gear and start reviewing movies again. Watched a preview screening of Manchester By The Sea last night and thought it was beautiful. How’s things been?

      Cheers Stu; it was pretty incredible that’s for sure! Now I need to get my act together and start watching movies again!
