Day 6 in Nepal: motorbike trip with Felix

On the morning of our final day in Pokhara, after returning with Toby from the microlight flight, I hired a motorbike for 350 rupees for an hour (£3 / US$4.50) so I could spend time with Felix…

Felix loved the trip, and I loved showing him that I could ride a motorbike! I bought my first motorbike when I was 19, and my second a few years later, but it has been more than 25 years since I last rode one!
