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.

Namaste from India

Greetings from the Dalai Lama's  Temple. You were all in my prayers this morning. I have limited  access to email and internet. Internet is painfully slow and poor quality. I forgot my photo card reader in Delhi so cannot post any photos for now. I'm staying at Chonor House room name: Nomad...appropriate huh??  ;) Going to Norbulinka Institute soon. It is very peacefull here, stunning sunset last night.
I ended up taking the local bus from Chandigarh at 10:30 AM reaching Dharamsala at 6:30 PM. It was interesting...more on that later. Kashmir was unbelievable and I left a huge chunk of my heart there and several kilos I lost trekking the beautiful mountains nearby ; ). On my way to Manali tomorrow. Love you and miss you all!!!
