So, after 10 months of being husband and wife,we suddenly had a week off at the same time. While my husband was busy planning to spend the time on his computer, working as usual.. I formulated a speech in my head to convince him there’s no better time than now, to go on our honeymoon.
You see, I had always envisioned a nice romantic stroll along the cobbled streets of Paris,hand in hand with my man while nibbling on a macaron as the perfect honeymoon..but he had other ideas.
The next thing I knew I was on board Druk Airlines, on my way to Ping’s dream destination….Bhutan! But from the moment we landed right to this minute, I still cannot believe how utterly beautiful that little country is.
I would, in a heart beat,now trade the Eiffel Towelfor a glimpse of the Himalayas, trade strolling with a printed scarf around my neck with a pair of hiking pants, and even coffee with for a glass of hot butter tea called Suja.
I learnt a lot about myself and our marriage in Bhutan, and after all the trekking and hiking and encouraging each other to carry on when things got a bit too steep, and finally making it to the top..I cant help but think how similar our climbing is to the story of our relationship.
Thank you to all the wonderful people we met there like Tashi, Sonam, and the amazing staff at Amankora, the farmers, Monks and adorable little children who talked, smiled, laughed and showed us what life is all about.
