This trip was supposed to be a trip to nurse my broken heart. A trip where I decided to just sink in the quaint beauty of Nepal however this Himalayan majesty had some other plans for me.
Wedged between Himalayan range and the Indian terrain, Nepal is definitely enchanting however the lanes of Thamel in Kathmandu can truly cast a magical spell. It's got an addictive and seductive energy. After we checked into our hotel, Kathmandu Guest House, we decided to sink in our beds and take a long nap but as we entered the serpentine lanes of Thamel we decided to ditch the nap and step out for a walk.
A riot of sights, sounds and smells quickly drove us towards a sensory overload. After changing into our comfortable best we headed out to eat, drink and just stroll in the fascinating lanes of Thamel. From eating a hearty bowl of Thukpa to random window shopping and chatting up with the localites- Day one was all about acclimatizing.
