12 days ago I arrived in Marpha, without a permit for my restricted area Upper Mustang adventure. My permit was getting luxury treatment and was due to arrive by plane from Kathmandu the next day. I had had to do with a 12 hour bumpy bus ride as all my money was spent on the permit. Walking from Marpha to Jomsom airport the next morning, I found out that my permit indeed had touched down in Jomsom, but that it also went straight back to Kathmandu on the return flight. Later flights that day were cancelled due to the wind, there was nothing left to do but wait..

On December 30th last year I flew back to Amsterdam after a wonderful 7 week hiking & exploring visit to Nepal. On December 31st I picked up a travel magazine and read an article about a man who had driven his motorcycle from Amsterdam to Kathmandu. All I could think was; “That’s what I want to do next”. I booked my test drive on January 2nd. When you want something, you have to go for it. No postponing.
