Thinking about trekking in Nepal?
Reckon the Annapurna Circuit is for you?
Looking at hiking in Nepal on a budget?
Want to read a beautifully written adventure story?
We recently found a jewel of a travel blog. A wonderfully written, detailed site that shares some great travel adventure stories and information.
There are some talented adventure writers around the world. People with great skills and a wonderful ability to tell a story. Thanks to Nora (the Professional Hobo), we ‘discovered” Sherry at Ottsworld (we are sure she has been well discovered before now, but we just discovered her)
Sherry uses the tag : Travel and Life Experiences of a Corporate American Runaway , and she has just completed a terrific series called Tiger Balm Tales
The Tiger Balm Tales will be a series of posts and photo documentaries which chronicle our father-daughter journey to Nepal for 26 days; the trekking, the people, the culture, the great heights (and some lows), and the excessive use of Tiger Balm.
I asked my dad if he wanted to join me as I really thought that he, out of any of my family or friends would appreciate the simplicity of Nepal and the rural lifestyle of the villages. Plus, at 73 years old, I felt like it would be quite an opportunity to see the mountains of Nepal. After a lot of uncertainty and pressure from others in the family (the most coming from my mom) he decided to join me. Game on…
Please take the time to read Sherry’s series, there is some terrific information and it is a great planning tool if you ever want to visit Nepal.
