Six months of planning and dreaming. Three people and their families, 3 cars. It is an ambitious trip. a country 2/3rds the size of South Africa with only 2million people and 2 weeks. I have packed and planned, hasty last minute adjustments to Gypsy. Tent arrived from factory with barely a few days to check […]

Quitting jobs and heading to Ladakh has become a thing, I hear. My hosts at the Yangphel Guest House in Leh told me that I was probably the 10th person they met in a week who quit a job, packed bags and came to Ladakh. Well, what are the odds? Ladakh is so alluring and […]
