I’m coming from Brazil to Bhutan. so this is the longest travel I’ve ever done and this was worth every moment. It’s the moment of community, moment of friendship, it’s the moment of discovery about a great country and its culture and so really, I got an amazing trip, an amazing week with plenty of new friends at the end of the trip and I will certainly remember that trip all of my life and for plenty of reasons. If you are willing to do it, just come to Bhutan. It’s really worth it.
