Wayyy back in 2014, we set off on our very first international trip together. In fact, this was Alex's first trip out of the country at all! It's not a stretch to say that our week in Kathmandu kicked off our love for exploring the world.
Between the incredible people, the food (Thali and vegetable momos were our favorite), the Nepali tea, the temples, and the art (we bought a hand-carved singing bowl, and some hand-made woodblock prints).
During our week in Kathmandu, we stayed in a hotel with the most incredible view of the city as well as of Swayambhunath perched on the hilltop. Every morning, we walked into Thamel for breakfast, where we drank Nepali tea even though we are both sensitive to caffeine. We planned our days around visiting temples, exploring the little side streets, and taking cooking classes.
