TRAVELING TO NEPAL AND EXPLORING KATHMANDU
We say farewell to beautiful Bali and make the long journey to Nepal. We land in Kathmandu and enjoy some much needed family time exploring the bustling streets of Thamel. We spend a day sightseeing and visit a number of sacred sights around Kathmandu: the famous Monkey Temple, also known as Swayambhunath, the famous Hindu temple Pashupatinath, and the largest Buddhist temple in Nepal the Boudhanath Stupa. Honza takes a walk down memory lane by exploring all the landmarks he visited from his first trip to Nepal 7 years ago.
TREKKING FROM LUKLA TO NAMCHE BAZAAR
We begin our journey up to Mount Everest Base Camp! We endure a scary flight from Kathmandu to Lukla airport. Our trek up the Himalayas begins and we quickly become enchanted by the sacred Nepali culture and the majestic beauty of the mountains. After many hours of seemingly endless climbs and terrifying bridges, we finally arrive at Namche Bazaar for a day of rest and acclimatization. Mama gets ready to say good bye to papa & baba and prepares to head out for a week long journey to EBC.
REACHING MOUNT EVEREST BASE CAMP
In this episode I (Claudine) say an emotional goodbye to baby Sofie and Honza and begin my solo journey to Mount Everest Base Camp. This journey becomes one of the most fulfilling and challenging experiences of my life, especially when my team fall ill with altitude sickness leaving me to conquer the climb alone. I’d like to dedicate this episode to the whole motherhood tribe of the world. This is my message of empowerment for every girl, every mother, every woman... “you’ve got this!”
