Nepal – The Most Perfect Place in the World for First Impressions

Making a great first impression is vital, whether we like it or not. That’s just the way things are nowadays, and just about everyone has an impression on everything. What I’m fascinated about though, is that when it comes to traveling, first impressions matter too. It gives this distinct kind of adrenaline rush in finding out the truth behind firsts and impressions. It gives some kind of personal grasp of the beauty right before you. It sticks to you, like a purring cat.

Nepal is the perfect place for first impressions. Imagine a huge untamed lion, purring into submission. Yes, that kind of Nepal feline. You’ll hear and read about so many details on how Nepal changes you for the better, on how it’s one of the most adventurous countries here in Asia, on how it’s distinctive among the rest. Nepal is a lot of things, but my first impression of this country really had a solid impact on how I see third world country adventures, much more Asia travel as a whole.

Nepal is the place to be if you are looking for that signature meek hospitality of Asians. They are the friendliest and most accommodating bunch of people out here, next to the Japanese, and Koreans. They give the most authentic small talks and chats one can ever imagine and you’ll instantly make friends just by walking a few blocks and stopping by for some afternoon drinks.

Nepal is the place to be if you are looking for that signature rawness that can only be found in Asia. Third world beauty, yeah baby! Imagine rough roads, erratic electricity schedule, clean+dirty ratio. This is one of the few places in Asia where you will appreciate disorder and simple way of living. It’s the Asian version of “concrete jungle where dreams are made of”.

Nepal is the place to be if you are looking for that Asian fusion. It’s century old meets a few hundred years old. It’s Indian meets Chinese fusion. It’s traditional meets original. I’ve never seen so much mix of interesting old school Asian styles in one place.

Nepal is the place to be if you are looking for that lasting impression. It purrs into your liking then as untamed as it is, it eats you up alive. In a good way, yes. Imagine Himalayas mountain ranges, commanding clouds, unique temples and rituals. It leaves a lasting impression that can only be fully appreciated if you come back for another adventure.
