India is a wonderful and challenging place to cycle. An explosion to the senses. You love it, you hate it and you love it again 

The following images show some of the scenes I encountered coming from Srinagar to Jammu and from there to Chandigar, Rishikesh up to the north west border with Nepal.

I hope I can recover the pictures on the broken hard drive so I can share more beauty I encountered during this journey.

    Nog steeds onderweg! Zalig! Ben stik jaloers man! Zag dat je bijna geen bagage met je mee neemt. Echt te gek!

    Wij hebben een korte tocht gereden in Griekenland deze zomer: heel vermoeiend, maar zo deugdoend! Geniet er van, elke dag! Niks zaliger op de wereld!

    Groetjes, Dieter
