The news of my US visit got me exhilarated from day one. Then began all the procedures to acquire my visa and then the ticket, which took about 15 long days. The thrill of going to the Land of the free was increasing day by day. Thoughts were rushing through my mind as my thought plane needed no ticket, I was already in the land of liberty.
Good thing about living in the Kathmandu valley is that you don’t need to travel too far to enjoy the beauty of nature. After a hectic week there are so many hiking trails where we can go to refresh ourselves in the weekends around the valley. We, the new employees who joined Deerwalk in 2019 decided to go for a hike to Nagi Gumba on 3rd August 2019.
On July 20, 2019 Saturday, Squad C hike was organized. This was my 2nd hike from Deerwalk and an opportunity to meet new deerwalkers. All the hikers from various squads gathered at Deerwalk Complex at around 7:30 am filled with excitement. We left the Deerwalk premises and started our journey to Jharsing Pauwa, Sankhu our hike destination. We reached to Jharsing Pauwa at around 10:00 am. We had some light breakfast and started our hike at 10:30 am.
It was a fascinating experience from beginning till the end. It is an unusual encounter whereby one feels their body shaking but in a controlled fashion whilst listening to the instruction by the trainer. I did feel a little exhausted but could feel the lightness in my body.
The day finally arrived, on the 1st of June 2019, I along with my colleagues Pratik Joshi and Sanjay Shrestha left TIA for Boston for a month. After 18hrs long flight, we reached Logan Int’l Airport via Doha at around 4 pm. We took a CAB to Ashay dai’s home which was about to be my home for the next one month.
Saturday, July 13, 2019, it was raining in the morning but, looking at the sky, I was hopeful that the day will be brighter and warmer as we had Senior Managers Retreat at Nagarkot. At around 1 PM, Sudeep dai called me to inform that the van was on the way to Baneshwor where I was supposed to be picked up. After 10 mins, the van arrived and the journey began.

True to the saying everyone who has gone for an official visit in Boston, MA has written a blog that tells a unique story about their travel experience. One destination, hundreds of stories to tell. It definitely is a unique experience.
This year I had the opportunity to visit Deerwalk U.S. office alongside my colleagues Ramesh Sapkota and Pratik Joshi. We left for the U.S. on 1st June from Tribhuwan International Airport filled with excitement.
Deerwalk Services was never only just about solving Big Data problems. It has been continuously conducting many programs that gives back to the community and one such is DeerClean. About a week before, the formal process for the Deerclean of Squad D began. All employees got invitations and to put their names on the list. 29 people had their name finalised with Gaurab Manandhar as the coordinator. We all were determined to make it successful but yet wondering what and how that Saturday would unfold.
After 3 months of continuous hard work and dedication, we newly born Deerwalk Auto Services entire team decided to plan a team-building hiking campaign. As we know, in Kathmandu valley major hiking trail is within 10 km, just we need to do is pick a direction and move on. In every direction of the valley, you will be overwhelmed by the bewilderment of nature. So it was not so tough job to choose our destination. Therefore, we decided to go for a hike to Mulkharka on 6th of July, 2019. Since it was our first hiking with this team so we all were motivated and reached Deerwalk Complex premises before time.
