Makkah and Kathmandu

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم..

I wanted to share with you pictures of two places I've visited these last two months, Makkah in KSA to perform Umrah, and Kathmandu in Nepal accompanying my hubby for less than two days :).

I've posted something on food of Nepal in my food blog.

Makkah has been a wonderful experience for me. I've been there over four years ago while I was still pregnant with my first child. This time we decided to take the kids, and it was a three days stay. The kids learnt more about their religion, they enjoyed it and had fun. I won't do it again with them till they are grown up and can take care of themselves as it was quite tiring trying to perform the rituals and being conscious not to lost the kids in the crowd.

I went to Kathmandu alone with hubby, and was glad to do so. It is not the cleanest city that you would think of taking kids to or eating outside the hotel. Nevertheless I loved it and think I can revisit Nepal again and see other cities.

ready to go

isn't it beautiful!

ma'shaAllah, very beautiful pictures!! :) May your Umrah be accepted inshaAllah. I always 'feel' for the moms who are doing Umrah with the little kids. It looks hard, hehe, but alhamdillah that they enjoyed it and learned more about Islam :)

Wowwww, you went to Nepal?? AWESOME!! ma'shaAllah :)
