Nepal: Trek by Marie

I am Marie and a friend of Bob and Arden’s and we travel a lot together.  I recently took to great trips and I wanted to share them with you.  One was to Spain and the other to Nepal and both were trekking. The trek focussed on trekking, cultural sights and I volunteered helping those less fortunate than me as some of my dollars went to support the people and environment. I thought I would share some sights around Katmandu
