Had a bit of Wanderlust in me. Sometimes you just get in the car and go where the day takes you. This was the result of missing the ferry...PNW in all its splendor.

Copenhagen was the best way to end our Nordic tour! Expensive, yes. But absolutely beautiful and well worth the experience! Walking around on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day we realized how empty the city was of tourists and locals. Shops were closed, restaurants were empty and the streets were bare. The days following became more lively, with crowds filling the streets and stores and the energy of the city came to life. Four days gave us ample time to explore the cuisine, atmosphere and sights that Copenhagen had to offer. Luckily we had plenty of recommendations to go off of! 💥🤤🇩🇰

Tip #1 - Flights!
We have had a pretty good experience with flights so far in our journeys. A good rule of thumb is to always watch prices, but usually no more than ~3 months before your trip is the best time to buy! We usually use google flights to find the best deals and to track the best time to buy, it has a sweet option to send you updates on current and future price changes.
We swear by @alaskaair though, they have an awesome perk if you’re a mileage member, where if you book your ticket and anytime before you leave the price drops you can contact them and they will credit you the difference! We did this for our first flight to Chicago O’Hare before heading towards Scotland! We bought a one way ticket, watched the price drop, then used the credit to buy the ticket back home!
Also, sometimes it’s cheaper to look for a flight from your hometown to a international hub, and then from there to your destination, rather than a straight flight, it could save you hundreds of dollars!

In a day I’ll be out of network for the next ten days.
So I’m going on a long Himalayan trek to Goechala in Sikkim with @BikatAdventures. In my heart, I’ve wanted to go for this trek since three years - way before I had even started trekking – and now that the day is so close by, I cannot contain my excitement any longer.
I don’t know whether it is being able to escape from the sweltering heat or the fact that my phone will be on flight mode for more than a week or because it’s been more than eight months that I haven’t done a long Himalayan trek or maybe all of the reasons combined, that have been giving me the motivation to work tirelessly for the last few days.
Admittedly, there also a bit of nervousness along with the excitement, as it feels like I have been out of touch from the trekking world since forever, however I have a feeling that as soon as I’ll have the backpack tightened on my back and the walking stick gripped in my hand, there will be no turning back.
This will also be my first time with @BikatAdventures and I’m quite exhilarated to find out how my next ten days are going to be - inside sleeping bags, packed in a tent, on the steep roads, so close to the mountains, with three layers of clothing and a pocket full of protein bars, amidst the chilly winds and a sky full of twinkling stars.
