In exactly 2 months Socs and I will embark on a trip almost 2 years in the making. I’ve been dreaming about this trip for a while to say the least, and it is quite surreal to know that in 2 months time Socs and I will be on a plane to see the highest peak on this planet.
Yes, we are off to Everest Base Camp. I’ve spent a lot of time planning and researching about the trek itself; when to go, what to bring, how long it will take, and the risks involved. And we’ve spent the good part of the year slowly stacking up on the clothing and gear we need, and we’ve got a few more items left on the list but we are basically good to go. Most of the administrative requirements have been settled as well. As for the physical training, we are still on it and should push ourselves hard this month and settle back down to prepare ourselves for an adventurous 3 weeks in the Himalayas.
This trip is actually going be our honeymoon and part of our planning process was actually debating on whether we wanted to do this or maybe just use the money to tour Europe or do something closer to where we are. But the end of the day, the allure of Everest looming above our heads and the timing of it all makes this the perfect time for us to embark on this journey. I can’t wait to get on with it.
