Adventure Addict in love with life coming soon to a high pass near you! I'm training myself mentally and physically for a solo trekking trip to the Himalayas at the end of May, 2010. My trip starts in Delhi India then onwards and upwards to Kashmir and the Pakistan border. From there I follow the northern route across India below the Afghanistan border and across all the highest mountain passes: Khardung La, Rhotang La and Marsimik La touching the Tibet/Chinese border. I will stop to pay my respects to the Dalai Lama in Daramsala and summit Stok Kangri. I will dive the cold waters of Pangong Tso; a high altitude lake that surpass adjectives describing beauty. My journey to the roof of the world has been on my bucket list for a very long time and is now finally becoming reality as the countdown begins to May 27, 2010. I'm still working on my route and itinerary so will post that at the earliest for you to follow along. I'm smiling big...can you tell? Update: Journey completed and Travel Log has begun.

My thoughts on blogging

I set up this blog as a platform for my family and friends to mostly keep track of me on my next trip to the Himalayas in Northern India end of May 2010. Even though I have a Facebook account, I wanted a separate space devoted to this trip in particular. In preparation, I've been riding my mountain bike (Beast) since August of 2009. Beast is generously on loan from my friend Jennifer...thanx Jen Jen :) It was interesting to "gear up" every morning before riding to work. My wardrobe suffered a drastic change and I started to purchase only Smartwool products. On the crazy snowy and freezing days, the Smartwool base layers and face protection is a total life saver...I cannot even imagine life in the wintertime without it! Anyhow, since I joined an online India Travel Forum (, I've been inspired to get out more and taking lots of photos of my training or travel or just my daily commute.
