Nepal, Everest Summit Anniversary, & Toblerone

Getting to and leaving Kathmandu

I don’t want to talk about excess baggage!  All I will say is I was a few pounds lighter when I got on the plane and I don’t mean in weight. The flights themselves were great and made all the better because I had a five hour stop over in Abu Dhabi where I met […]
