Rikki's Journey to Nepal

Current Location

Kathmandu, Nepal

Namaste! I'm Rikki, and I'll be studying in Nepal this semester in order to explore its diverse culture and learn the Nepali language. I can't wait to share this country and my experiences with you! 


My independent study project just began, so continue reading to learn about my experiences traveling in Kathmandu, Lukla and Namche to do field research and interviews!


I'm always out exploring new places, so I can only ever carry the bare minimum with me while I travel. Reflect with me to see how each place differs yet always feels like home! 

Field Notes

I was so excited to sit down at brunch with Madam Priya Adhikari to read about her life off and on the job as a high-altitude helicopter pilot in Nepal!
