As I mentioned before, I was excited and scared going to Nepal. Not for anything else but just for Chhori as she is so young and I wasn’t sure if she would be OK or not. But on the flight from KL to Kathmandu, I didn’t feel any anxiety or confusion. I was just happy to go to Nepal and meet our friends and family.
The flight was a short one, only 4 hours and Chhori handled it well. It was a really nice feeling to see the Himalayan range and the beautiful landscape from the plane window as we got closer to Kathmandu.
I knew Chhori wouldn’t understand much but I was happily explaining to her that we were going to birth place of her parents.
As we landed, cleared immigration and took a lift to ground level of airport, we were welcomed by a chaotic scene with so many people that it was hard to walk around.
Apparently, 10 different flights had landed at that time in Kathmandu and as they were only 3 luggage carousel everyone was confused and running around looking for their luggage. I was so thankful that AS and my dad were with us and looking for our luggage while I had to look after a very curious toddler trying to touch everything and anything.
Finally we found our luggage and made our way outside. AS’s brothers were there to pick us up and we were happy to be away from all the chaos.
Every time I return to Kathmandu I see so many changes and it was the same this time too. All the roads and buildings bring back so many memories.
Chhori was having the time of her life in the car as there was no car seat and she could move around. She was meeting with her Kaka (uncle) and kaki (aunt) and cousins for the first time.
My FIL and MIL were very happy to see Chhori after a year. It was so nice to see the grandparents – grandkids relationship.
In next few days, we went and met other relatives including AS’s grandma and my grandma who are great grandmas for Chhori. I am so happy that she got to meet them.
The sad thing to see was that they have aged so much in the last 3 years and that their health had deteriorated a lot.
We did have a great time with all our relatives and I was happy Chhori was having an amazing time with them.
I am going to write more about our Nepal trip soon in another post. Till then, take care everyone.

The pictures really show a happy and friendly family. Thank you for liking my posts and staying in touch. Hugs to you and Chhori. 🙂 xo
Looking forward to reading more about your Nepal trip! Seems like you had a great time meeting family and friends.
It was a great holiday and we had great time. It is really nice to see my daughter with our grandma.
Seems like a very beautiful holiday 🙂
I am scared to take my little one on a plane trip but I guess I have to just not think much of it and do it 🙂 Glad your LO handled the journey well
Chhori is just 2 now and she had been on 3 different trips and 8 different planes. Just plan your holiday without thinking about it and you all will be just fine. Just focus on the destination. I experienced that kids who can’t walk and run are better travel company than ones who can 🙂
Thank you for the advice. I am planning a trip very soon 😋
Have heaps of fun 🙂
Thank you. She will finally meet her grandparents. I cannot wait
Awww…Their relationship is so special. I loved Chhori’s interaction with her grandparents. When I talk to my mum, she says that she doesn’t miss me but miss Chhori a lot 🙂
So sweet. Ruby never met them. Only on Skype but she knows every time she sees the app she smiles and starts to clap her hands as they taught her how to do it. So remarkable
