Pokhara: Momos, Paragliding, and Drunken Rowing

Long time (ish) no see. Just over a week isn't too bad but I am going to try and get back into twice a week posting soon. Autumn is starting to make me super duper tired but I'm determined to push through.
Today's post is from probably one of my favourite cities, one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. I'm in love with Nepal and I'm so in love with Pokhara, I knew from when I got there that two days just wasn't going to be enough and it wasn't. So I hope I can return to this stunning city soon.
Despite only being there two days we did an awful lot and I didn't take that many pictures. But I did video a lot so watch my vlog at the end if you want to see just why I love Pokhara so so much.

Happy Little Trips

I've probably fooled you with the title into thinking this a travel post, or about drugs, but it is not. This post is a bit of a life update, but it's mainly just pictures of cats. At the end of my glorious (and essentially year long) summer I went on lots of little trips to see friends, family, and out to take photos and appreciate the last of my, responsibilityless, do whatever the hell I want year. And appreciate it I did. I also met lots of cats and I felt the need to edit and post the pictures so that's what this post is about.
And i know it's been a while since I last posted, moving to uni means I haven't yet found a schedule and time for blogging. The first few weeks I felt a constant need to socialise and make friends and I'm now starting to settle down and not feel the need to be around people 24/7, plus most of my flatmates are away for the weekend so i don't look weird enjoying a weekend sat in my room on my laptop (I really really am enjoying it). I've also been hit by like 3 different kind of freshers flu, pretty sure I have another one coming and in the last few weeks have barely been able to get into lectures. I've ended up getting back and crawling into bed, hence why I also haven't done any editing.
And now I'm in procrastinate mode so I'm probably going to queue posts for the next month while avoiding doing any kind of work.
But I'll get back to the cats because let's be honest as soon as I said cat pictures you were distracted from what I was typing and just wanted to see that.

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.

Home

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.
