Cancun is the main entry point for most tourists to Mexico, especially coming from Europe as it’s the cheapest flight. But what to expect from Cancun and the surrounding area?
After a quick stop in Luxembourg, I’m back on the road. This time it’s the other side of the continent, Mexico and later the rest of South America. As you can imagine, it’s again a different world compared with Europe and Asia. But after being such a long time in Asia and spending the rest of my life in Europe, it’s super interesting to compare the three continents to each other and give you some inside about my first thoughts about south America.
uxembourg is my home country, and I love it, but I haven’t been home for 14 months and traveled all year around Asia and Australia. I had the best time of my life, and it felt absolutely weird to be back home. I only stayed home for 20 days before I left again to travel around South America. It was so odd to get back home, and it made me think a lot.
Luxembourg is a country – Yes, it’s an independent country – and it is my country. It is tiny, yes, but it’s amazing. And in this post, I want to talk a little bit about it. And I especially want to answer the most frequent questions about the country. If you happen to read this post because I send the link to you – I might have lost patience to explain everything to you. So keep reading and surprise other people next time with your knowledge.
Tomorrow, I’ll fly home for the first time in 14 months and only for three weeks before my journey continuous in South America. I left at the beginning of October 2018 and had the time of my life. So I decided to cut a video of the best moments, and it gives me goosebumps every time.
My hiking trip from Jiri to Mount Everest Base Camp was amazing, in general. Still, there were also many unpleasant moments, many things which weren’t luxurious, and many moments I wanted to give up. It’s an adventure, not a 5-star all-inclusive vacation. I knew that, and it’s totally fine with me. However, it was even harder in the end, then I could imagine. This is not a blog entry to keep you away from the whole thing; you should just know what you are getting into and be prepared. In the end, it was terrific, as you can read in my other entries.
Alongside all of the Jiri to Everest Base camp trail are tea houses where you can sleep, they are mostly in small villages or just as single homes on the way. There is no need to sleep in a tent, you’ll always have your room, and the quality is often better than I was expecting.
So, in the last post, I gave you a little overview over my trek from Jiri to Everest Base Camp, in this entry I’ll describe the trail in more details. How difficult was it? Was it hard to find, and how long did I hike a day?
Before planes and the Lukla Airport, everyone who wanted to visit mount Everest had to start in Jiri. A tiny town in the mountains where the last street from Kathmandu ends. Nowadays, there is Lukla Airport, and 95% of people fly to that airport and start their journey there. They fly in 20 mins over the trail, which takes six full days and is the hardest part on the trek.
In my last post, I described the steps of preparation you have to take before you can hike the Mount Everest Base camp trail. One of the most important things is to get a proper lost of things you need and then buy them. Here is my list, but I would highly recommend to read some other blogs about the topic and form your list, I’m a guy and might need some other things like a girl, or you might do a shorter trek so the things you need might vary.
