Default Re: 36 Days in the Himalayas - The Air up there...

Wow! Reading all these experiences i'm seriously considering to go on a solo road trip myself sometime in my life! Living in a city like Delhi since my childhood and in my relatively short (Read 20) age i've never really heard or met such people. Whenever i'll be in a bad mood or feeling that there are no good souls left here , i'll read this thread (bookmarked it) , glad i read your travelogue and you're really lucky to have experienced something like this in your life.

P.S The photographs look gorgeous !

It is indeed good narration supported by small, touching and inspiring tales. Humanity stills prevails in the hearts, the world is not over yet. By the way what happened to the static website, is it done? Share with us the URL...

Thumbs up Re: 36 Days in the Himalayas - The Air up there...

Dear Om,

Your thread has been rated a full 5 stars. I just love the way you have put out the incidences from your month long excursion in simple words which make more impact than the equally splendid pictures you have captured.

Hats-off to you!

Fantastic Vaikul.

You truly are a blessed person to be able to enjoy God's majesty. These journeys make us realize that life has so much more to offer than the constant chase of wealth, power and position and very few lucky ones get the chance to actually experience the 'other side'. Great going.

Fabulous bro, you have made my day!!!

I must say the incidents whichever you have mentioned definitely will give a new perspective to our lives. Kudos to you for experiencing all these in your ride and I would say as a biker it is everybody`s dream to do such a heart-throbbing trip and come up with a new definition of leading a life which we all are intended to.
Your teaser pics are quite intriguing and definitely will have a look on your album Flickr in leisure.

Dear Om, excellent one! Welcome to TBHP!

Since this is the 6th time, how different was this; as in, preparation, bike used, planning and time selected?

Equipment matters to some extend and hence these questions about it
1) You bought a new bike and took it there?
2) What all was packed 'for' the bike?
3) Did at any point you had wished that; if only I had rode something else or if RE had made this so..
4) Did you face any technical issues with bike?
5) And puncture? You were prepared for this and had kit with you?

6) How did you keep in touch with others?
7) I presume there was no night ride at all?

8) your cam & kit was?


Gonna take some time to see all those 600 beautiful shots!

Thanks for sharing this wonderful experience with us and hope to read more in the future.

Great narration and beautiful snaps Om.

The incidents that you have narrated truly touches the heart and shows how little we know about life. Reading through them was a nice experience. Will now go through those snaps in your album.

Looking ahead to hear from you regarding the kit used for taking those beautiful snaps.

Now, that's what we call a travelogue. Brilliant pics, experiences and the narration. This is what an ideal travel is.

I always advise to younger people - If you are traveling, please prefer home-stays over flashy hotels which hide the reality of the place and people around. And yes, you get good treatment and hospitality from hosts if you be the good guest.

Thanks for sharing!

That's a travel and a write-up. Crisp pictures and crisp writing. However, looking for some more information on your 'worst' experiences on the road and with your machine.

Keep riding...Keep writing...

Ride Safely....

Hi Om!

Welcome to Team-Bhp. I have been following your wanderlust blogs since a while now, and reading this travelogue here refreshed my memories of a similar blog there.
Your blogs are inspirational to guys like me, who are new to the world of biking, and the challenges & memories that come with it. Your observations are truly wonderful.

In fact I came across your website while searching on Google for Travelogues on TB500 - this was done while I was waiting for delivery of my first bike - a TB500

Good to see you here, and waiting for more of your travelogues & biking tips.

Cheers,
Sam
