Nepal: Where in the World are Lisa and George?


Hello from Nepal!

Thank you for your support of our site! Our first Travel Writing Contest had over eighty entries. I hope you are enjoying reading them all.

I have had a few emails wondering,

“Where in the world are Lisa and George?”

We are trekking to Poon Hill in Nepal.

What is in it you ask? Here is an example from our recent news:

We hiked 3 days in Tansen with information from GETUP Palpa and the City View Home Stay. Tansen is not touristy and filled with friendly locals who taught us Nepalese. I learned to say, “Malai ek cucur Momo dinus” which made for many laughs as I was trying to ask for “one chicken momo please,” however, cucur means dog and cucura means chicken. OOPS!

At this moment, we are in Pokhara. We walked with two men from the army as security through the jungle to the Peace Pagoda for a phenomenal view. We have acquired a few more warm pieces of clothing and will soon rent down jackets and sleeping bags for our next bigger hikes and treks!

One response to “Nepal: Where in the World are Lisa and George?

  1. That looks like a heck of a journey. I haven’t been to India yet, but that is the kind of route the just inherently appeals to me. Linear. Fully exploring.

    Damn it. I AM a travel geek. LOL. Have fun in Nepal.
