February 16th: BANGKOK TO KATHMANDU
OPEN JAW

Nepal
India

When we first started planning this trip, both of us listed the top five places we wanted to go.  Joel listed Nepal as his number one destination.  (Lisa's number one comes later.)

We plan on getting in a guided tour and doing some serious trekking through the Himalayas. Who knows -- maybe Joel will find his calling as a sherpa?  (Although he is probably a little bigger than your averge sherpa.)

The OPEN JAW from Kathmandu to Bombay, all the way across India, is going to be intense.  It's hard to even imagine the wonderous sights we will see.  We are definitely pumped!  We just "have to make it happen and take the world by a love embrace."
