After nearly ten years, I made it back to India! This time, I’m exploring north of Delhi, including the Himachal Pradesh and Utter Pradesh.
Discovering Hong Kong, where clean streets, culinary treats, real toilets and western-themed stores are the norm, offered a dose of western culture.
Our weekend in Kowloon began with a startling introduction to our accommodations, the ChungKing Mansions, a hotel reminiscent of a Steven King novel.
Heading south from Beijing, China, to Xian was an adventure. Along the way, we taste-tested local cuisine, experienced the local toilets and gave our best efforts at adjusting to fascinating Chinese culture.
Camping and horse trekking in the Sichuan province was an uncommon adventure. For three days, we rode across mountain landscapes to Ice Mountain.
After weeks of nonstop travel, we settled in Lijiang at Mama Naxi’s Guesthouse. Genuine and full of life, she’s a true gem along the backpacker trail.
