Last Day Trekking near Salang and than back to New Delhi

Foggy Forrest in Salang

OK – today I really wanted to sleep a bit longer since this would be a day with less walking. So I told the guys not to come in my room and wake me before 8 in the morning. Who had to get something really not important at 6.30? You guess! That was my night and since I was up we had breakfast and started to walk. All the steep way that we went down yesterday – we had to go up today again. And soon enough thick fog and rain again. Why would it be better than the last two days?

It does not matter where we passed – we were invited for tea and even food. Nice to dry a bit on the fire as well.

A flat – no problem – we fix that!

Rishikesh
Than it took the whole day to get back to Rishikesh. I stayed across the street from the bus stand. There was a really good and cheap restaurant on the street just in front of the hotel. I had a great dinner and then my last night in sweaty India for that trip.

Entrance to the hotel

I went a day to early to New Delhi to meet with Sandra again. Since she did not stay at the hotel where she told me i could not find her. But of course late in the afternoon she did spot me. So we had dinner together and it was a nice end of that trip. I had an air con room since it was round 38 in the day and it did rain from time to time. Way to humid to do anything apart from last-minute shopping and nothing at all in the room.

Air India
Great – I had all three seats for myself for the whole flight! That was it. Two months of summer holiday. See you again India!

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.
