Update

Namaste!

Just want to update this page. From our last post, we've been frantically trying to get flights refunded, get in touch with our tour operator out in Nepal and trying to figure out if we should cancel our trip completely or just re-arrange - will it be safe, will Kathmandu still be in devastation, will we be able to trek this year at all if there are still aftershocks and frankly are we wise!?!? We've also been getting used to the fact that we were back in work after only 1 day off, instead of having an amazing month off trekking in Nepal - boooooooo!

Anyhow, we've decided that we still want to tackle Everest Base Camp and we have rebooked our adventure for the start of October 2015. We've raised all this money for the Alzheimer's Society and we also have our minds set on taking on this challenge so we are going to go for it and hope we still enjoy the experience. We know Kathmandu is in a terrible state, but hopefully if people keep on visiting there and putting their money into the country, they can get back on their feet sooner rather than later!

The good news is we've all our buying, organising and packing lists done, so it's just a matter of bunging it all in our rucksacks and going!

So that's all folks, keep checking in on this blog over the summer months and we will blog a bit more before we go in October!
