Namaste from Namche!

Hi folks. Just a quick update.
We have arrived back in Namche after our successful visit to Gorak Shep and Everest Base Camp. We had a few mishaps and a lot of fun along the way but we made it. It has been unbelievably tough walking all the way in on the Expedition Route from Jiri but it has been worth it. We all acclimatised extremely well but I can tell you that 5000m above sea level is no place for normal human beings! It’s nice to be back at a more moderate 3500m! We also trekked back from Gorak Shep to Namche in 9 1/2 hours! That’s faster than The Millennium Falcon  does the Kessle run! Hahaha.On the way back I narrowly avoided an actual Yak Attack and when we arrived in Namche Dave was so hungry he ate Yak steak and chips twice!
Lots of stunning and silly images to be uploaded as soon as we get to Kathmandu (hopefully in a couple of days; fingers crossed!) and a bit more detail about our experiences. Be warned though; the main topic of conversation over the past few weeks has been about our toilet experiences! Hahahaha.
Thanks to you all for being patient and for continuing to support us.
Much love to all our families, we miss you all so much xxx
