This is a blog that I created for very selfish reasons. But I'm happy to admit to what they are.
This is one of my all-time favourite travel blogs, about the time I was in a Buddhist retreat in Kathmandu and then went trekking in the Himalayas.

Everything about the last nine days in India was working to prepare me to enjoy Thamel, the tourist area in Kathmandu. In nine days, Emily and I toured around Delhi, Agra, Fatehpur Sikri, Jaipur, Pushkar, and Udaipur.
The journey from Bodh Gaya to Amritsar lasted 28 hours and involved two train rides and a 3 hour taxi. This is the excerpt.
