From the journal
As I travel, I keep a journal. This post is straight from the source – documenting the moments as I experienced them. It has been recorded on the blog on the date it was originally written.

Today was magic. Granted, I’ve never been more physically exhausted in my entire life. But, magic none-the-less.

We made it to Everest Base Camp.

In the glow of 6 am, we started the days trek. 16 km. Uphill. Downhill. Flat. Totally not flat. Rounding the corner into Gorakshep was a much welcomed relief. But with less than an hour to recover – it was hardly a break.

We quickly turned attention on getting to base camp. Immediately outside of Gorakshep, we walked across a long, sandy valley.
