Chitwan National Park, Nepal
All of these flowers were found outside my little cabin by the river in Chitwan National Park, Nepal. I stayed there for three days, the only visitor staying in that particular row of cabins. I would sit by the river at sunset on a big wooden bench, drinking Nepali beer and reading old Agatha Christie novels until it was too dark to see. In the mornings, I would wake up early to have breakfast with my guide before we set off to look for wild rhinos, elephants, crocodiles, and, of course, the elusive tiger.
The days were serene and at times lonely, but it was a beautiful park and a good place to reflect after the craziness of India’s cities. I’ve been so busy these past few weeks that sometimes I miss the peacefulness that travel brings, those quiet moments when all you have is a book and a journal, a beer and your thoughts.
