Kiwis Sarah Davidson and Christopher Bishop killed in Nepal

Just spotted this on the NZ Herald web site:

Quote:
There are unconfirmed reports that two New Zealanders have been killed in a motorbike accident in Nepal. Kathmandu Post reporter Anil Giri told the New Zealand Herald the pair had been named as Sarah Louise Davidson, 63, and Christopher Mark Bishop, age unknown.
The Deputy Inspector General of Nepal police, Binod Singh, said a team from the local Makawanpur district had been sent to the scene of the accident.
The cause of the crash was unknown and details were still unclear. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs was seeking more details.
The newspaper is seeking people who know them: Reports: Two New Zealanders dead in Nepal - National - NZ Herald News

Yes there is, they were out there doing it, I think it fit to see the better side of what they were doing rather than the unwanted result.

As sad as it is they were doing what we all love doing.

Best to their families and friends from Ellen and I, message to Chris and Carol, see you in adventure heaven in the sky one day with more great tales.

Very sad news. Rest in Peace.

If it's any consolation, at least they died doing what they loved.

Stay safe everybody.

Chris was into road racing in the 80's and never did anything half hearted.
I lost track of him over the years and it was sad to read this story.

I take consolation in the fact that he was obviously doing what he loved when he passed
