2 Years Ago Today...

...David & I left for Asia together!! Now he's there without me :( It's a slightly different adventure that he's on right now than the one we took in 2007.
In case you weren't following us then we took a 2 month backpacking trip extravaganza! We had a blast exploring together and revisiting some beloved Asian places as well as discovering some new ones. We went to Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand & Nepal. We are so thankful we took the opportunity and saved for such a fun trip together. We slept in airports, had a few really sick days, met up with my aunt & uncle, hiked to Everest Base Camp (go us!), tried to surf, and also tried some new foods. What great memories. I only have a few pictures on our computer but please check out our blog posts in August & September (2007) for a few better ones.
On our way back from Everest Base Camp and feeling pretty victorious!
David with the beautiful Ama Dablam, in Nepal
Me at the Dirty Duck (a beautiful restaurant facing rice paddies) in Bali, Indonesia
Shangkar, Ram, David & "Mother" in Nepal.
I met Shangkar in 2000 when I went to Nepal and David met him in 2001 (I introduced them). We'd kept in fairly good contact with him and tried to find him when we were in Kathmandu. We did find him and he took us to his Mother's house where we experienced some real Nepali life. Sadly, Shangkar has passed away since our visit.
Thanks for taking a look back at our once in a lifetime trip!
