On the road again !

I'm starting this year's cycling tour on Sunday - heading for India instead of Tibet, but still staying faithful to the Himalaya region. To be more precise, here's the first part of my itinerary. That's my map in fact - as a dedicated ultra-light cyclist I am leaving the real map at home.

That's a great travel plan;) Good luck on your trip. You'll definitely have tons of fun. Just keep checking the Leh flooding situation but I think you should be OK by the time you'll get there...

And keep us updated with your blog. I, for one, will check on your adventures (and pictures too)...

I'm still hanging around the Nagin Lake in Srinigar. My replacement camera lens is coming in on Friday and I'll be heading out toward Amritsar on Sunday, most likely... Directly through Jammu though. I had to leave out Chamba and Dalhousie, maybe for the next time;)
