Katmandu to Doha to Staunton – 18th – 19th May 2014

We had a lazy start to the day and headed for some breakfast before doing some final packing. 

After getting our things ready for the journey home we went for a wander through the streets looking for some Nepali sweets to take home for work. There was a huge range, which included sets from Switzerland, Turkey, Italy etc, but nothing from Nepal! 

We got back to the hotel and checked out after which we took a rickshaw to the ‘Garden of Dreams’. We spent some time wandering around and had a snack. The gardens have been recently restored and were a compete oasis in the heart of a very body and bustling city.  Plenty of people were there and lounging around and enjoying a welcome break from the city! 

Having got back to our hotel we started or long journey home.  We shared a taxi to the hotel with Jo, another member of our trip, and arrived at the airport.  There followed a 5 hour flight to Doha, 7 hours at the airport (with limited food and drink outlets) before a final 7 hour flight to London.  By the time we eventually arrived we had spent almost 24 hours travelling.  Nevertheless we were both still edited about our holiday journey! 

An early night filled in preparation for our first day in work. Reflection on this bit it seems like a distant memory, but I have memories that will last a lifetime!
