Nepal, Himalayas – Annapurna Base Camp Trek

We spent the best part of ten days trekking through the Himalayas on a journey to the Annapurna Base Camp. It was an amazing experience and I lost about a stone along the way which was a major bonus.

I know we felt a major sense of achievement when we completed our trek.

The weather can change very quickly in the Himalayas


Watch out for Yeti’s!

FECK OFF! It’s too early.

Serena - Fashion

Fashion clearly goes out the window on the Annapurna Trek. We’ve still got that blanket though – it’s very warm and the cat likes it.
