As the airplane wheels squealed on the tarmac of the runaway, I sneaked a glimpse of the outside world through the window. A sense of calm fell upon me. A few minutes later, the moist air kissed my dry skin and as I put my feet on the ground, I joined my hands in awe, thanking the higher spirit for guiding me home. Hello Assam! I will be here for a few days now.
It’s been nearly 3 months since we visited Ladakh and I still remember each detail so vividly, I think my heart is still all over the region. This post was long due but so many things were happening at our end, I had to stay away from the blog. I did not realize how and when 2017 came to an end and 2018 began.

It has been a while since we hit the road, so we decided that we would head out on a road trip once we reach Leh.

Majority of our luggage would stay tucked in our hotel room at Leh and we would fit our basic belongings into our backpacks and drive along the mysterious mountains for 2 days.
Expect your mind to be blown away on your first trip to Ladakh and let it stay that way for as long as you can. It is a feeling you probably never felt before. Let the silence of the land and the abstractness of the sky numb your soul. Plan your first trip to Ladakh for as long as you can.
First of all, wish you all a very happy Karwa Chauth. I hope you all are doing amazing. I am fasting today and I have never been as hungry as I am today LOL. Can’t wait to see the moon tonight!
