Finally we arrived in Kathmandu. Now we are „all in” on Everest. This journey means a lot of new experiences for us two individual travellers: getting to know our group (pretty cool and interesting people), staying in a luxury hotel instead of the small guesthouse we are used to, and more than five tons of gear. Normally on an expedition we are feeling overloaded already with 500 kg of gear. An Everest expedition is definitely something different! About all that we have read a hundred times but being part of such an expedition is a new feeling for both of us.
Slowly we are realizing that we are actually part of a real Mt. Everest Expedition. Tomorrow we will be heading towards Tibet. Especially Hannes is pretty nervous as our whole mission depends on getting all the gear across the border, which can be tricky sometimes. Our next post will already be transmitted from Tibet! We are looking forward to getting things started. More soon!
