Off to Ladakh

With my sister and brother-in-law's visit coming to a close on Sunday, work visitors that I hosted arriving on Monday, our trekking friends Judith and Glenn coming back to Delhi after a northern India tour on Wednesday and dinner with a friend and mentor-like figure that happened to be in town on Thursday all while getting ready to go completely unplugged for a two-week trip with a 6:30am flight this morning, the past week, to say the least, has been busy.

In other words, not much time for writing. I feel like I still have a lot to say (positively) around having visitors, the latest catchphrase we have going around here, and of course intend to write volumes about the upcoming trek to Ladakh.

However, for now, it's about experiencing that trek. With that, I'm officially unplugging for a while. If you're bored and want some idea what I'm in for the next couple weeks, check out my posts from last year's trip to Annapurna in the April 2010 archive. This year is the same guide and even the same cook. It's going to be awesome.

I'll leave you with an image my sister took during her recent trip to Ladakh. I didn't technically ask her for permission to use but figure I gave her free lodging a few days so we're pretty much even.


  1. That is an absolutely gorgeous photo! Enjoy your travels!

  2. Namaste from India... Well Ladakh is a place where I am still to visit... It is definitely very high on my travel wishlist!!
