Momo Making with Sasane

This post is part of a new series on my blog called "people doing amazing things" which celebrates people making the world a better place.
Our first stop in Pokhara was to an organisation called Sasane, where we were taught to make Momos. Momos are traditional Nepali dumplings and they're also amazing. 
SASANE is an organisation with centres in Pokhara and in Kathmandu which helps human traffiking victims to become paralegals, to help get their lives back, build a career and help other human trafficking victims. And while there they taught us about their organisation, the work they do, taught us how to make momos and made us lunch.

A Homestay in Chitwan - Baby Animals, a Perfect Bike Ride, and Sweating my Problems Away

So I have a love of baby animals, beautiful wild open spaces, and wild animals living their life. So it's no wonder Chitwan is the place where I really started to fall in love with Nepal. Don't get me wrong I loved Lumbini and my lunch in the hills but this was on another level of beauty.

It's a dreary Welsh day and the tide is the furthest out I've seen it in Years. As I made my way down to the shore crunching over rocks, avoiding stepping on the closed anemones and the patches of mud I could've help noticing how at home I felt.
I was wandering around with my camera, like I often do, and I realised just how calm and at home beaches makes me feel; especially this beach.

Hello Nepal: Buddha's Birthplace and Lunch with a View

Today's post is shorter than a lot of my others, the last and next post were too long to add it to and I really wanted them on their own so this one is too. It's kind of two half days stitched together, and I guess a lot did happen as we Passed from India to Nepal (one of the sweatiest experiences of my life) and visited Buddha's Birthplace. Then on the way to our next destination (which I will talk about in my next blog post) we stopped off at one of the most beautiful places I'e ever had lunch in. I was so so excited for Nepal and this really confirmed to me that I was going to love it in Nepal, which I did.

As with many of my photosets I set out with an idea to shoot one style of photos and came out with a completely different set. Though I'm happy with my set and in the end had fun shooting this. I really should plan out my taking photos more but most of the time I just say "lets go" and grab my camera stuff and set out to a place. It tends to look different in my mind to in real life and then I have to re think all my ideas but that's part of the fun I guess.
 On another note I'm happily back to meeting cats when i go out and take photos. It used to happen every time and it's been a while since I've made any cat friends. The little one today even followed me and demanded more attention, so cute.
I also ended this photo taking session with very muddy knees, you'll see why.
