EBC Trek – Tengboche to Dingboche

Wow, today was the most incredible day! For many reasons! Firstly, before breakfast I had a little wander around the village.

Tulips + Speculoos + Wine = Gezellig weekend

After two relatively quiet weekends I was ecstatic to have my three buddies C, K and P visit me in my little old city of Den Haag. It was probably the shortest turn around since we had last seen each other but it didn't make our time together any less special and like every other [...]
