My latest travel adventure – two weeks in Nepal – is going to be amazing. It was a random opportunity presented to me by my mom and I am thankful for the chance to see this part of the world.
There are a number of reasons I am looking forward to this trip: my wanderlust has been back as of late, this will be my first trip to Asia, this will be my first trip abroad with a DSLR, and this will be my first trip after a few years of learning and growing and getting settled in my life in Minnesota.
I don’t have all of the details yet, but I do know we will be visiting the Mt. Everest base camp, as well as Tiger Tops Jungle Lodge. I’m sure I’ll be posting about this as I approach my departure date and get more details.
As a part of the preparation for this trip, I will be doing a lot of thinking, a bit of shopping, maybe a few shots, and also reading up on the places we will be visiting. In addition, I am debating growing out my hair and then having it cut & donating it after I return. Why? Right now my hair is pretty short and to be completely honest looks a hot mess when I don’t blow it dry and flat iron it. I don’t want to have to deal with a hair dryer and flat iron on the trip and prefer to keep things a bit easier to manage. Not to mention the fact that I would also be helping others as a result of this plan. I’ve had a number of other friends who have done this, and I’ve always been curious and interested in trying to do it. I had hair well past my waist when I was younger – so long hair is not foreign to me. However, this time it will be red and not light blonde. 🙂
So – here goes nothing. We shall see how this works out for me. Or if I get frustrated and cut it sooner.
