It was 6:15, I was awake and struggling to breathe. I’d had a similar experience a couple of weeks ago, but that was from lack of oxygen at altitude. Today, I just had a cough and very block-up nose.
Not wanting to go back to sleep and not really wanting to leave the warmth of my bed quite yet, I reached for my iPad and took at a look at the Wanderlust website. That was my photograph on the home page, small, but it was definitely mine. Really? I was definitely awake, wasn’t I? I looked again and yes, there was my photo of the one of the pieces of thangka art shown to us by Tashi Lama when we visited Swayambhunath.
Over the last few days I have shared a few bits and pieces about my trip in the MyWanderlust section of the travel magazine’s website. But there, sitting as the header image of the Editor’s weekly review of travellers’ experiences, was my photo! It just happened that the review was on the homepage at the time, it won’t be there for long.
Can you tell that I was quite excited?! There was no way I going back to sleep now…
