Thanks to all for help prior to our trip.
Our trip was amazing and we are now in the post holiday depression faze...hoping to recover sooner than later.... starting on the "next plan" to help speed the recovery.

I kept a travelogue during our 3 week India/5 week Nepal trip and have posted the link below. I typed it up as we travelled so ignore the spelling and grammar - have to go back in at some stage an edit.

Anyone interested in some of our trek photos just skip to the specific entries of the trek (listed at the bottom of the entries) - fastest way to view photos is via the slideshow option under each entry.
The photos arent of the calibre of you guys but I hope you enjoy some of them anyway.
