Ladakh ride 2016: Sarchu- Leh

So I spent a day in Sarchu and walked around, took pictures, put my gear to dry. All that was primarily to acclimatize myself to the ‘high’. In the process of doing so, I met a lot of travellers, at the dhabha where I stayed. Most just halted for snacks and continued towards LEH while

Ladakh ride 2016: Jispa- Sarchu

I woke up to the mooing of cows in my warm tent, which was getting hot by the minute as the sun shined bright and hot at 7.30 AM. I thought the cows had entered the campsite and the fear of one of them crashing into my tent was annoying me. I first peeped out

Quitting your job to travel: Is it worth the risk?

Our employment system is so erm backward that I’ve had to actually write about this. I mean is this what people associate freedom with?

Travelling without Plastic- yes, it's possible!

We’re seeing so much news surrounding plastic, global warming, smog, pollution levels breaching the limit in cities like Shanghai and New Delhi. But what can we really do about this?

Ladakh ride 2016: Chandigarh- Manali- Keylong

The climb to LEH Ladakh was happening through Manali, so I started early from Chandigarh and took a different route towards Manali than what I had taken the previous year. This route went directly through Shimla and then connected to the Manali highway. I did my best to maintain speed, the road was a mixed bag

Ladakh Ride 2016: Bangalore- Chandigarh

I had it in my mind and heart since long that I’d be leaving to LEH- Ladakh from Bangalore in June 2016 but didn’t have specific dates planned. All I knew is that I just HAD to go there this year, no matter what happened! But then, what about my new job that would be

Reviewed- Phone mounts from Rynox!

Last year when I rode across India and explored various places, I felt the need for a strong phone mount which I could use to mount my phone and use it for GPS navigation ONLY! The thing about handlebar mounts is that no matter how much you spend on them, no matter how sturdy they are,

Royal Enfield Himalayan- First impression

After seeing a lot of moto journos praising the hell out of Royal Enfield’s Himalayan, I decided to see how much of a fake or real jizz this motorcycle could produce. So I took a test ride of the motorcycle to get a basic feel of the it, rode it through rough terrain, with and
