Kyoto used to be the capital of Japan. It is no longer, but we are still excited to visit the “City of Ten Thousand Shrines.”

This post finishes up our Fast Forward Friday series. We plan on returning home after visiting Japan. Keep in mind that Fast Forward Fridays take us far to the future of our trip. Likely we will not see this temple until next spring and after that, we’ll finish the Round the World trek and head back home sweet home.

Another thing we are looking forward to is trekking in Nepal. After some research we have decided we are most likely going to do the Langtang trek. It is a good middle ground on number of days. We also found out that it is likely the same trek that Della’s parents did 35 years ago. These pictures are from their trek! We hope they don’t mind is copying them! ☺

We are super excited to visit Nepal for many reasons. The largest is probably because many of Della’s students come from there. Pokhara, specifically, is exciting because a good friend of ours from Delaware came from there and it looks like a beautiful city. It is the second largest city in the country and three of the world’s tallest 10 mountains are close by. It is an ideal location to set of on a trek.

Varanasi is a holy city in many religions: Hinduism, Jainism, and even Buddhism. Many people make pilgrimages here to bathe in the holy waters of the Ganges river. It will be colorful and overwhelming, but we are excited to experience this place.
