    5 Things I learned while traveling in Nepal

    Things I learned during my trip to Nepal – confessions of a travel blogger Hello, I’m home again! For a few days already by the way, but I decided to extend my vacation by a few more days. Apart from occasionally posting a social media message, I did almost nothing online. Most of all acclimatize back home again (especially to the nice and warm here in the Netherlands!), but also the horror that is called pollen allergies and I’ve enjoyed some outdoor time with my boyfriend after being away for two weeks.     Even though I truly enjoyed my trip to Nepal, it didn’t really go as planned.
