You Should Visit Once

I went to visit Nepal from Australia for couple of months with my Bestie but every seconds of my 14days of trekking@Mt Everest Base Camp was my best moment/days of my life. You should visit this place once, looks thousand times better with your necked eyes rather than the camera but you most come along with your Partner/family/friends and Camera. After visiting there, I bet you will ask yourself 'why did I late to visit here'. Anyway i really want to say thanks to the Lord for took me there. I don't think, i'll get to see a beautiful and natural places like this in the future. I'm sure i will say my Grand Son/Daughter to visit this place once. Once again what i say is You Should Visit Once.
