Like all the Journeys, this one too must have an end.
After like being through hell, heaven and humans it was a pleasing journey that left me with hundreds of questions and answers to them…
Its not all that we want is what is in our destiny.
Somethings are better left on the mighty one.
We can always give our best but cant get to what is not in our hands.
This Journey was incomplete one… I was 22kms closer to where I wanted to be.. M – La.
But had to return back due to some Chinese people surveying the border area and then some problem with my Permits to be in the inner line region of India.
Lots n lots of memories… of how excited I was to sleep in -2C and be amazed to get to reach the place i have come for but then just as the morning light came up, I found the front tyre of my bike was flat….Still Reached ITBP last post and they said… no going across to the inner line areas.. whether u r an indian or who so ever.
Felt sad, but then I had to come back.. time was clicking.. and people some where else in the world waiting for me to join them back…
Had to rush back… reached leh back again. Some local friends from leh joined me and made me accept wht was not there…
It was a journey cut short in terms of days distance destinations…
From 10 days it got to 9 days
From 3000kms I just did 2600kms
From M -La, From Hanle From Chusul, It was limited and none of the destinations completed.
What I just got was some good time with lots of foreigners being able to share from my past and present experiences…
Three times in last Three years in same place sounds Crazy… to tell em how much i love high deserts and the places I wud love to be in…
Nice to meet the people who reached leh in 1982 and still they find this place interesting enough to make em return although it has gone through plenty of changes. Amazing to tell em, I was born in 82 and been here three times already.. sounds like fun. Nice to meet people from far away places… Nice to meet people who appreciate me travellin so much and living life for all my responsibilites..
I will put down the account of all my days trips and things and people I met with time I get..
Though I wud really wish I could write a book on my travels… It wud justify me being in places.. where most of us wont reach.
For all the people here esp… all the D’s here…
I will share the pics on my Flickr home… I will keep uploading one pic a day.. sounds quiet a patient work.
But for me it justifies my travel and my patience to share it all.
Heres where my pics will be : www.flickr.com/photos/lovemax
