One of those days when you can see me jumping all over like a kid, Another Road Trip! This time its Munsiyari, Uttaranchal!
Been a long time, I haven’t been on a road trip. You know it’s been a long time when you start craving for something. Right now, I am craving for a road trip – The dirt, the snow, the chill, the black ice, the anticipation, the excitement… I can go on and on with this.
It’s winters here, in India. And you may know how its gets here in Himalayas. One word description? BAD! And I like this word when it’s associated with a road trip!
It’s going to be five days of complete bliss! No office, no work, no worries. Just me and my machine, conquering himalayan giants.
Also, this time, I will be recording my trip. Live!
I have created a small web application – The Bike Packer. All the way along, I will be tweeting live from my cell phone. And my tweets along with the photos will get pinned onto a Google Map. When I say live, it means that updates are going to be real time. I hope you would like this application.
You are welcome to experience what I would be living.
If all goes well, then this would be my itinerary for this road trip.
