Breakfast with a Turkish Drug Smuggler

One of the things I enjoy about travel is meeting people and just chatting, listening to their stories. It is a great way to learn of places that you should visit and gives you a real insight into another world, far away from my home country.

This morning was one of those moments, I had to pinch myself. I was having a conversation over breakfast with a German, a Swiss and Turk in a roof top bar in Kathmandu, that alone was incredible. We were talking about our travels, about what we have seen and done in Nepal. Everyone’s Nepal’s story were completely different yet all so exciting. I had been trekking, the german had been training in mixed martial arts with the Nepali special forces, the Swiss had been living in Pokhara and the Turk had been living with the Holly Men. Half way through breakfast the Turk just casually drops “Do you know if they have body scanners in Bangkok?” Followed by “Well I guess I have a lot Pot to smoke in 10 days”

Ummm the interesting people you meet hey?

What crazy meetings have you had whilst travelling? Just comment below, I would love to hear about them.
