Travel Theme: Fabric

This week’s Travel Theme by Where’s my backpack is Fabric.

Almost three years ago now, I had the privilege to spend 3 months in Nepal. An incredible country with beautiful people. My time there was spent doing many things but at the same time relaxing, reading and resting.

It is by far one of my favourite traveling experiences, and I can’t wait to have the chance to go back and explore more.

Visiting temples, stupas, settlements and hiking are a big part of the “see’s and do’s” in Nepal. The well known prayer flags that can be found in most of these places have a spiritual meaning to those who placed them, and offer a colourful sight to the passer-byes.

Historical sights are decorated with vibrant fabrics that contrast with the colour of the buildings and brings them alive.

Woman’s traditional clothes are often made out of colourful fabrics. Visiting Nepal and not buying a few garments is hard to accomplish (leaving some spare room in  your bag is recommended!).
