Just creeping around some bushes on a random Kathmandu street. I could try and write some inspirational metaphor about dark doorways leading to nowhere and the inherent uncertainty of new opportunities, but its Sunday and I’m hungover so I’ll let you connect the dots 🤷♂️
(🇬🇧👇🏼) 📍Kathmandu, Nepal 🇳🇵
Buona domenica a tutti! 😃
...Ricordi del Nepal 6 anni fá...
Nella foto il Boudhanath Stupa nel cuore di Kathmandu, tempio buddista. • LO SAPEVATE CHE:
La "collinetta bianca emisferica" rappresenta il globo terrestre con i 4 elementi: terra, fuoco, acqua e aria. Sopra la collinetta ci sono gli occhi del Buddha con al centro un simbolo, che sembra il naso, ma invece è il simbolo nepalese chiamato "ek" che simboleggia l'unità, e sulla cima in alto dello Stupa c'è un "parasole" che simboleggia il Nirvana.
Dal "parasole" partono file di bandierine colorate, ed ogni colore simboleggia un elemento fondamentale:
blu = cielo
bianco = aria o vento
rosso = fuoco
verde = acqua
giallo = terra 😯 • E voi li conoscevate i significati dei colori delle bandierine dello Stupa?

Good Sunday everyone! 😃
... Memories of Nepal 6 years ago ...
In the picture the Boudhanath Stupa in the heart of Kathmandu, a Buddhist temple. • DID YOU KNOW THAT:
The "white hemispherical hillock" represents the terrestrial globe with the 4 elements: earth, fire, water and air. Above the hill there are the eyes of the Buddha with a symbol in the center, which looks like the nose, but instead is the Nepalese symbol called "ek" which symbolizes unity, and on the top of the Stupa there is a "parasol" which symbolizes Nirvana.
From the "parasol" start rows of colored flags, and each color symbolizes a fundamental element:
blue = sky
white = air or wind
red = fire
green = water
yellow = earth 😯 • And did you know the meanings of the colors of the Stupa flags?
Let us know! 🤙🏼
Here we are with the second installment in our series about Nepal's super diverse geography. Don't know what that means? No worries, just check out our previous post. ▪️ In this post, we're presenting you with Nepal's thick midsection - the hills! If you've ever visited Nepal and spent time in Kathmandu or Pokhara, you've visited the Nepali hills. ▪️ Since we get to see the hills on a daily basis, we tend to not take as many picturesque photos. But that doesn't mean we love this region! ▪️ 📷
1: We know, you probably want to call these "mountains." We know the struggle. We apologize for potentially knocking down your preconceived notion of what you may call a "mountain." Here in Nepal, the rule of thumb is that mountains are poky and can have snow all year long and hills have trees and are habitable. ▪️ 📷 2: When White spent time in these hills, she showed a photo of her native Arkansan Ozark mountains. "Oh," her host responded quietly. "Your place has very, very small hills." ▪️ 📷 3: Some strong ladies work together to plant rice in their fields. ▪️ 📷 4: This traditional home made primarily of mud and wood perches over some gorgeous hilly views. ▪️ 📷 5: Fields. Endless fields. ▪️ 📷 6: This area, while surrounded by hills, is actually within the bowl-shaped Kathmandu Valley.

The air was thin, my lungs struggling, legs weakened by fatigue. But my spirit was soaring! Among those cyclopean mountain peaks I felt free, light and fiercely alive.
The snow was knee deep, crisp, frozen. The sky rich blue, scudded with huge white clouds which were themselves dwarfed by the vast slabs of the high Himalayas. Never in my life had I seen anything like this.
The struggle to the top had been so much more than worth it. The almost permanent hunger, the anxiety over the weather and the cold nights endured were a price I’d happily pay every time to stand at the top of a pass like this and to feel free. Utterly free.
Climb your mountains. The top is always worth it.
अन्त्येष्टि Hindus believe that the cycle of life and death is a concept of rebirth. It is the soul that attains salvation and not the body. Our body is a symbol of ego and burning is a way of letting it go. Hence, cremation is a way of reminding that the body is not important but the soul is.
My current favorite spot to hangout for delicious food, ambience and their stunning bar ❤️

is at one of the highest building in Kathmandu. The height is 1365 meters above sea level so the whole 360 degree view of ktm can be witnessed 😍
Their speciality is mostly Indian cuisine. They have a chef from india itself so no compromise on the taste and quality 👌
This is ANGARI CHICKEN. The process to make this is very interesting as seen in the video. The chicken is rolled with the spices and sauces so the taste is top notch 👍
All the masala and spice is all over the chicken 🤗
