Summary: Muscat to Bengaluru

First flight and cultural shock. Arriving early in the morning in Southern India and welcomed by the sound of horns which would be always present… The start of the voyage through the Indian subcontinent…

The Trail

Last days in India

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.

A fast and short post

I haven’t been very consistent with the posts on my blog (or maybe I’ve been just plain lazy). I don’t have even opened the page in more than 5 months. After having problems with my electronics and the potential loss of all the visual material i’ve gathered after a year traveling, I started thinking today that it’s time for a change how a treat this blog. 

Instead of trying to be organized and write a long and “elaborate” post, I’m going to share short and simple moments of my trip. Starting now with some outtakes from my trip through Nepal so far. The pictures were taken while cycling the road between Tansen en Pokhara. Order and descriptions will follow.
