Hello seasoned traveler,

Did you climb Himalayas?

Any idea where your niece lives in NZ?

It looks like the mountains are resting on the clouds. This is a wonderful shot of the Himalayas from a plane.

Amazing that the Himalayas emerge through the clouds! I love the contrast between the snow covered mountain peaks, and the fluffy clouds below them!!
