If you're going to visit Bangkok for the first time I'd definitely suggest you take at least one trip on a tuk tuk, as it's quite a fund experience... Read More

Deep in the gorge that it carves through the Himalayas, the Alaknanda River rushed beneath a footbridge. On the right bank sat a busy Indian village, Govindghat, its one street lined with spartan hotels and shops brimming with Sikh religious items and souvenirs. On the left bank, a man wearing a frayed sweater-vest and a ski cap greeted me imploringly.
“Horse?” he asked, hoping I would hire his mules to haul me and my pack up the path to Ghangaria, an isolated mountain hamlet in Uttarakhand state. Ghangaria is the base for visiting the legendary Valley of Flowers National Park — where... Read More

She orders almond cookies and apologises for her Spanish. The courtyard is open, with large paved flagstones, the tables squarish, small and scattered. Surrounding high walls on three sides are alive with masses of espaliered red roses.We sit soaking up the last of the sun, gazing eastward over receding terra cotta rooves as they disappear from view down to the winding river realm of the Darro.
