Travel with Jewelyn: Sick on Christmas day in Nepali.

Finally have time to edit videos now that I'm on Spring Break! I'm currently back in Vegas for work.
Here's me in Nepali... making my way from Kathmandu to Pokhara with my trekmates. Feeling really sick... not sure if I got sick from the stay in Kathmandu with all the dust and strange food... topped off with the crazy bus drive to Pohkara.
Eating dinner in Pokhara was a dream since I ate a lot of the same foods in the Himalayans. French onion soup was perfect for a cold day and feeling sick. I met the most coolest Germans who I trekked with... one of them were my roommate for the trek which was fun. 
Hope you enjoy the vlog!
Namaste, Jewelyn

Namaste. Jewelyn

Travel with Jewelyn: Kathmandu, Nepal. My 1st morning with my host family

Hi Loves!

Still sick in Las Vegas and trying to get over this horrible cold... day 6 of being sick.

Finally going thru my Nepali footage!

Here's a glimpse of my first morning with my Nepali host family. I had such an awesome experience exchanging culture with them and wish I had more time to hang out with them. They took such good care of me and I only wish them the best. They have the most beautiful home of all of Kathmandu... my room was on the top floor with a great view of the city.

 I had tea and toast every morning and I loved their home cooked meal. It was cold in the 30s and there's no heating system in Nepali so I pretty much wore 3 layers to sleep every night. 

I'm very thankful for their warm hospitality and nice hot showers.
Check out my instagram @ilovejewelyn for more photos of my first morning in Kathmandu. I have a clip of a local man singing and playing a local instrument in the drive way while I drank tea.

Life in Nepal is so simple. I love it and have a special place in my heart for Nepali!

Cheers Jewelyn
