My friendly host in Amritsar

My room is the one with the open door. Air condition, fridge, tv, hot shower – and everything free! CS is great!!

The building is 300 years old and was recently converted into a kind of hotel. 2 pools, horse staples and it is in the middle of nowhere 20 minutes away from Amritsar. Very quiet and all the food is organic from the own fields.

A trip to the Indian Pakistan Border for the closing ceremony. Something between a fun fest and a serious event.

Everybody is happy – time for a cold beer!

Tomorrow i try to get a bus back to Manali. I have to wait if the bus shows today – than it should go tomorrow. Will try to reach Gangotri – the beginning of the Ganges. Lets see how the roads are today!

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.

    Amazing place. This is good news … It looks like an oasis in Amrizar Save trip back. Be careful with your time. The road leaving Manali can be closed too. Wish you a great trip Robert
