Untitled – Phaplu, Nepal ~ A few days ago I returned from a trip to Phaplu in Eastern Nepal where I went to celebrate a dear friend’s birthday. Before leaving Italy I didn’t take much time to think about this trip or what I expected from it, but it turned out to be one of the nicest I’ve ever experienced and in total honesty I can say it has been one of the happiest times in my life. So much so, that I’m taking over the Instagram feed of @beyulex (Beyul Experiences) run by my friend @angsterr (Ang Tshering Lama) who hosted us in his Happy House in Phaplu and organised our trekking up to the Buddist monasteries of Chiwong and Tupten Choling. I don’t often do takeovers unless it’s for a reason close to my heart: in this case it’s because I want to thank Ang and his incredible crew for the unbelievably joyful and happy time they gave us during that unforgettable week, so please follow me on @beyulex where I will be sharing some of my b/w and colour photographs from Nepal. 🙏
