I woke up about seven the next morning to my growling stomach, needed breakfast badly. I woke up my friend Lew, and told him I was starving; let’s go have breakfast on the patio. We walked up to the main house and there was a nicely laid out breakfast on the terrace, which had beautiful views of hills and the city below. We had plans to roam around Kathmandu for a day before we set out the next day for Lukla, which is considered one of the most dangerous airports in the world! That adventure will be discussed in one of my future articles.
Finally, the flat tire was replaced and ready to head to Shivapuri Heights Cottages which is located on a high ridge close to the edge of the National Park in Kathmandu. After loading the luggage, the driver headed out, it took us about half an hour to reach the hotel cut off, which turned out to be a very steep single lane hill that looked like the beginning of a roller coaster. We just hoped that nothing was coming down, as we
attempted to go up!
Visitors to the Swiss resort of Klosters sometimes read like a who’s who of the rich, famous and royal. With Prince Harry, George Osborne and many others all flocking to the region on ski holidays to Switzerland the resort has a certain appeal, especially if you are looking to rub shoulders with the well-known and fabulous.
Barbados is well-known for its sugar plantations and although may people on cheap Barbados holidays go to see the beaches; there is a wealth of history to be seen on this stunning island. Like many great British houses, some of the plantations have fallen into disrepair, including one of the oldest – Drax House. Many of these great houses were built by colonials, after they arrived in Barbados in 1625. These buildings tell the story of the island’s past, not all of it good.
