Lives in Vietnam at the moment

  • Nepal

    I spent a month traveling around Nepal and journeyed to Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, and a bunch of amazing villages! I have a lot of connections in Nepal and can help you find the best deals on guest houses and hotel rooms. There are a lot of scams in Nepal as well, so I can teach you what to look out for! Pokhara is my absolute favorite place in Nepal (possibly the planet). I spent three weeks there and used it as a travel base to exploring the surrounding regions.
  • Vietnam

    In 2014 I will have spent 7 months of my travel time in Vietnam. I first came here in Feb 2014 and one month was NOT enough! I've stayed long-term in Cat Ba, Hanoi, Da Nang, Hoi An, HCMC, and the Mekong Delta. Vietnam is a "love it or hate it" destination, so I can help you determine which side of the fence you might fall on. It's a fantastically beautiful country with fascinating people and the best cuisine and street food in the world.
  • Laos

    I spent a month in Laos and enjoyed a much different experience than the typical backpacker circuit. I skipped 4,000 Islands and Vang Vieng and opted for two weeks in Luang Prabang, 6 days in Vientiane and a week exploring the remote river villages of Nong Khiaw and Muang Ngoi Neua in Northern Laos. I also did an amazing eco-trek from Luang Prabang and have some great recommendations for monk interaction throughout Laos!
  • Cambodia

    I spent a month in Cambodia in the spring of 2014 and was overwhelmed by the kindness of the people. I spent a week in Phnom Penh and three weeks in Siem Reap. During my time in Siem Reap I was able to make friends with locals and experience amazing food, local beaches, pagodas, markets, and other great spots most tourists never see. There is so much more to Cambodia than Angkor Wat! (though Angkor is amazing and you won't want to miss it).

Itinerary: 3-4 Days Backpacking in Kathmandu

Hi Rebekah,


I'm planning a short stopover in Kathmandu and would like your help in planning it. I have 3-4 days in mid-November (dates not final yet). Please help me with an itinerary I can follow and with finding good accommodation. I'll be traveling solo. I don't mind staying in hostels but would prefer a place where I can interact with the hosts or other locals - so a reasonably pricedb&b would also do.


I'd like to cover the major cultural highlights of the city and have the local food. I'm okay with having street food (but do let me know if there are special precautions I should take besides drinkingsafe water).


Any other tips with regards to public transport, day trips, etc. also appreciated.


Thanks,


Nicolas
