“Not all those who wander are lost.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien
“Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.” ~Anita Desai
“What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? – it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.” ~Jack Kerouac
“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.” ~anaïs nin
“I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.” ~Mark Twain
“But that’s the glory of foreign travel, as far as I am concerned. I don’t want to know what people are talking about. I can’t think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can’t read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can’t even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.” ~Bill Bryson
While on a coffee “trek” in Nepal, I definitely saw some great sites. Despite being in Nepal, no one expected trekking to the coffee farm. (In reality it was not a major trek, just a very, very long climb down).
had some harrowing roads to travel
We had some coffee and eventually toured the grounds. Pretty impressive and more so knowing how difficult it is to grow a coffee tree (it takes 4-5 years for the first fruit). It’s also a lot of hard work.
After the farm tour, we were able to tour the Kathmandu roasting plant. Ironically we ended our coffee tour by drinking a cup of tea!!!
However, out of all of the fantastic things we saw on this trek.. the local kids were the most fantastic!!
