Well what a year it was -A wedding in Malaysia, five intense months in India, Climbing to 5416m in the Annapurnas in Nepal, temple hopping in Myanmar, insane Cambodia, and eating myself to death in Thailand – and of course the endless days of just having fun and only worring about where to go next. In total we travelled around 40,000km or once round the earth at the equator. Not bad for a year.
Sadly it’s back to normal life – for a while – here in Canada, but heres a few of my favourite things of the last 9 months.
Manali to Leh Road – What a journey. The ultimate road trip. One day I’ll do it on an Enfield – One day
Bagan – Possibly the most amazing man made landscape on earth. Sadly it will never recieve the attention it needs – world heritage status – because of the political situation.
Annapurna – One of my proudest achievements, and not actually that hard – a little maybe. Everybody should do this once.
Kerala – The prettiest indian state or gods own country as the locals call it – and problably the easiest state to travel in also – and great for the history/nature buffs too.
Walking in the parvati – Endless days walking in pine clad hills in the brilliant sun, hot springs – ohh, and the local delicacy.
Alfonso Mangoes – Amazing, soft, juicy, sweet, delicate alfonsos. The best fruit in the world.
So, see you all in the new year with a better, more interesting blog – hopefully. Now all I need to do is to try and sort out the other 5000 odd photos I took in India etc. and put them up too.
