Flying to Kathmandu

Days 1-2

Our journey begins with a flight out of Calgary direct to Frankfurt in the middle of the night. Even as I write this, the past 31 hours of bustling through terminals, sleeping on planes and waiting in lines has merged into a blur.
The 9 hour red eye flight to Germany passes almost instantaneously as we manage to sleep the majority of the flight and leaves us in the Frankfurt international airport lounge, which just so happens to have freshly tapped beer.

After a quick nap, snack and stretch we're on our way to Doha, Qatar. The flight is classy and even has lie down seats! Stepping off the plane overwhelms us with 35 degree weather.... at 5 am. Just a little taste of the desert.

A short wait in the nicest waiting lounge (complimentary with showers, massage chairs and wifi) and we are off once again to finally conclude our journey.

Flying over Kathmandu displays a endless sea of 5 story buildings as far as the eye can see (certainly no taller). It is quickly apparent that Nepal is a country like no other.
The air is ripe with smog and humidity seeps into our lungs after we step off the plane. There is a mixture of beautiful old architecture, nature, traffic and poverty. Welcome to Nepal.
