The 3rd day of our Mount Everest Base Camp Trek has started and will bring us from Monjo to Namche Bazaar; the Sherpa capital in the Khumbu region and the gateway to the Mount Everest. The day had a tiring long climb for us in store ... but also one of the many highlights during this trek "our first glimpse of Mount Everest".

The sound of chirping birds and the Dudh Koshi river's tumbling water woke us up after a good night's sleep. The second day of our Mount Everest Base Camp Trek has started and will bring us from Phakding to Monjo. We decided against hiking all the way up in one day from Phakding to Namche as I was a bit worried about my fitness level after doing very little preparation for this trek and of course ascending slowly also helps to avoid altitude sickness.

Last April, I decided to accomplish another bucket list item, the Mount Everest Base Camp Trek (also known as the EBC trek). As I mentioned before, I'm not sure why I'm so in challenges lately, but I just need to get that feeling of achievement ... I just need to feel alive. Feeling the same? Then I can definitely recommend the Mount Everest Base Camp Trek. Besides an incredible feeling of accomplishment, this trek offers stunning Himalaya views ... a close view at the world's highest peaks ...

Although I love to relax with a cocktail on an exotic beach or an exquisite pool for a day or two, I prefer most of the time a bit more action while on vacation. My perfect holiday destination is a place that combines beautiful scenery with lots of hiking opportunities. Austria for example offers amazing landscapes, wild water rafting, thermal pools and endless hiking opportunities. It's as well my dog's favorite vacation destination :) Here's a list of 10 other amazing holiday destinations for anyone craving action, excitement and stunning landscapes.
