Trip to Nepal

Last year was the year of understanding for me. In December  2013, I went to Nepal for a 7 day trip with my back back and a sketchbook. its been a while and was going through the sketch book the other day and thought it would be lovely to share it with you all. it was more of  a pilgrimage experience for me as I  myself  traveled for the first time all alone.
