"He's here! He's here!! HE'S HERE!!!!" the kidlets cried out while jumping up and down when the doorbell rang.
It was my brother, stopping by to say 'hi' a few days after returning from his summer trek. He's one who loves to travel and hearing his stories & seeing his pictures lets me travel to distant lands vicariously.
Sooo...where was he off to this summer??
China. Nepal. Everest.
After flying into Shanghai, China, seeing some old friends (from when he used to live there), he took a thirty hour train ride to Chengdu, China, then on to Kathmandu, Nepal and after a week there, he flew to Lukla to begin the three week trek to the Mt. Everest Base Camp.
He mentioned that its a twelve day trek, but he and his guide stopped in villages along the way to spend time with locals....I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of those stories when we can spend more time together.
This is the last stop before continuing on to Everest Base Camp. Wave 'Hi' to the clouds!
Despite the shape of his feet upon arrival (and yes, you're glad I'm not posting that picture!!!), he made it and enjoyed the journey, the experience, the beauty of the environment around him, and the once in a lifetime opportunity!
I'm really looking forward to hearing more of his tales as I know he has many more to share with us.
Because its (almost!) Friday and because this visit from my baby brother, after his summer trek, was Fabulous, and because I giggled out loud when I read her blog for the first time, I'm linking up!
And of course, its always fun to meet new peeps & make new friends (Watch out! I'm about two seconds from busting out some Girl Scout songs now....Make new friends, but keep the old, One is silver and the other gold......I warned ya!! :>)
