MANALI! The most spectacular stop yet!

Hey peeps! Our Rajasthan circuit has come to an end, and sadly so has our time with Maire. It was SO great having her with us and we already miss her. Although now we can say things like “omg I totally bonded with that cafe” without getting made fun of. Good thing too, because I am totally bonding with Manali. After 40 hours of grueling transportation (tears were involved on several occasions– out of pain on the camel, as a result of the dust storm in my eyes on the train, and out of fear of flying off the cliff on the bus), we’ve made it to Himachal Pradesh! I should say one more time how fantastic Rajasthan was. After Udaipur we went to Mt Abu, Jodphur, Jaisalmer and the Thar Desert. We have been quite busy! Here are some snaps from our last few days…

About heremethere

Last October Alysa and I were gchatting about wanting to do something with our lives-- she was living in Toronto and, although living it up and loving the city, was in need for a change. And I was in Los Angeles working on a very stressful campaign feeling like I was getting farther and farther from who I am. So we started gchatting about going on a long trip. To South America, maybe. To Europe, probably not. To Asia, bingo! And what do you know, we actually are doing it! So here we are, traveling around (at least this is what we set out thinking) India, Nepal, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Sri Lanka. Let's see where we end up...

    These pictures are the best yet, for sure (and its some stiff competition). They are beautiful. I can’t wait to get copies that I can frame and hang (hint, hint!). Love you so much. Call me soon!

    I love these, I seriously look at them over and over.

    p.s. It looks like a face in the big rock in the first Manali river picture.

  4. Strange this post is totaly unrelated to what I was searching google for, but it was listed on the first page. I guess your doing something right if Google likes you enough to put you on the first page of a non related search.
