Nepal Part1: A Life Changing Journey with Wild Guanabana, Omar Samra And My Fantastic Group Of Trekking buddies…

What an amazing bunch of people I trekked with in Nepal, Poonhill…

Being someone who loves to travel alone, I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised ( and lucky I must add ) to have found myself enjoying a week of action, adventure, suspense, comedy and thrill in the midst of a group of 18 uniquely different and cool spirited people.

From my cool light-spirited friends H and R .. to Nina, Karim, Cherine and Omar whom I first met at the airport and they were already all smiles…..

To a Dal-Bahted Dory and totally laid-back and awesome couple Mohamed and Ines…

To each of Amr, Lobna, Sarah, Munthir, Sherif and Riham…

To Heba, the fantastic Mum of that 11 yr old witty smart and funny young man, Abboudy, who was one of the many highlights of my trip… my trekking buddy who touched my heart in so many different ways..

To Fady, the nice guy who is always looking after everybody… ( my saturday Durbar Square buddy, my credit card is doing well 🙂 )

Those names that meant nothing to me when I first read Wild Guanabana’s pre-trip introduction message, now each of them flash an image in my head that puts a smile on my face 🙂

From the fast to the slow, from the funny to the eccentric, the statistics-calculator-head to the athletic, the wise to the witty, the sleepy-head to the relaxed, the casual to the chic, the kama-sutra freak to the massage freak, the stand-up comedian to the Dal-Bath hero 🙂 each with their own special and unique character yet all smily, friendly and fun…

Wild GUANABANA (  http://www.wildguanabana.com/  ) had promised us a life changing experience and a life changing experience indeed it was… Yet, for me it wasn’t thru the awesomeness of nature, nor the beautiful sceneries or the never ending staircases to heaven or the majestic highlighted peaks at sunrise or the unique charming guest houses with no showers or the squatting toilets ( best leg/gluteus-exercise toilets 🙂 ) My life changing experience with Wild GUANABANA was thru my trekking buddies… the 18 members of the group… positive or negative, I took back home with me a souvenir from each of them…

After 10 days in Nepal, I was sad to leave, not for the geographical part of the trip but for the inner calmness and serenity that this whole journey had brought me..

Keep smiling my trekking buddies 😀

Until we meet again…
