It's a cold morning. I sit with my backpack and watch sunlight creep into the valley of Thimpu before me, the statue of Buddha sits peacefully in the distance absorbing the morning rays. A subtle feel of excitement takes hold of me. It starts in my stomach and flows up to my head, I feel light. We're leaving this morning for Eastern Bhutan – a two days journey by bus to a remote land I have only heard of. A land of natural beauty, small villages, and traditional Bhutanese life... The sunlight has not yet risen high enough to hit my face; I soak in the feeling – adventure ahead.
