Patan (Kathmandu), Nepal
Nepal! Visiting Nepal was a lifelong dream, but I didn't make a concrete plan to visit the country until I was in India. I bookmarked a Conde Nast article about Patan, an ancient city within the heart of Kathmandu, and it was just as beautiful as I imagined it to be.
My trip to Nepal happened about three weeks before the earthquake, and sadly, I'm not sure that the places I visited are still intact. I'm grateful to have had these experiences, though, and that I'm able to share these photos with you.
