Viewing the World from a Two-Wheeled Perspective

A little who-hoo!

Posted by on Mar 9, 2013 in India, USA | Comments Off on A little who-hoo!

It’s always a thrill to see your words in print, and yesterday was no exception; only I had the added rush of seeing the magazine with my article in it on the bookshelves at our local bookseller (Hastings). So now one of my India articles is in print.     Please follow and like...

Motorcycle Expeditions Trans-Himalayan / Ladakhi Adventure

Posted by on Oct 12, 2012 in India | Comments Off on Motorcycle Expeditions Trans-Himalayan / Ladakhi Adventure

Part A of my Indian Himalaya Adventure was a tour of the Ladakh region with Motorcycle Expeditions. Here’s a promotional video Motorcycle Expeditions made from our trip. What a great adventure I had with them. They are a top-notch motorcycle touring / motorcycle expedition company. I can’t say enough good things about them and the way they took care of us. Enjoy the video! Here’s the LINK  if the above video doesn’t appear in your browser or email.           Please follow and like...

Delhi Traffic (this time with pics hopefully–sorry for the technical difficulties!)

Posted by on Oct 10, 2012 in India | Comments Off on Delhi Traffic (this time with pics hopefully–sorry for the technical difficulties!)

Well, the day after I was hijacked in Delhi Buddhi insisted on renting me a car and driver so I could see the city–the proper way. Continuing my theme of amusement with Indian traffic, here are some random photos taken my last day in Delhi on the way back to the hotel. I’m especially fond of those that have six rows or cars in (what is painted on the roadway at least) two lanes. Oh and don’t forget the bomb squad pic. Enjoy! Please follow and like...

Hijacked in Delhi India! (Delhi Hell?)

Posted by on Sep 30, 2012 in India | 2 comments

This is part two of my first day back in New Delhi… I woke up from my nap, and my neck was hurting again, plus I had a headache. I though what better way to spend my last night and my last  rupies than to get a massage where a full body massage is between $12 and $20 (as opposed to $65-$85 in the USA).  Plus I wanted to go out and get some Vitamin C for my cold. I dress, go down to the front desk, and ask where the pharmacy is. Then I ask about massage. In the ever-so-helpful Indian way, he gives me all the information and even says he  can arrange a moto taxi to take me to both for 50 rupies ($1). I agree. I get the Vita C, get to the massage place,...

Rooked!

Well, it’s been quite an eventful day here in Delhi. I’ve left Buddhi’s protective custody and I’ve gotten the whole college course in travel in India in one day! (It doesn’t help matters that I am now with a full-blown cold (Thanks, Carolyn, for reminding me that it’s better to have a cold in India than to not be in India!) As I went about my day at first I imagined I’d title this post “ROOKED”. That happened first–right when I arrived in Delhi. A porter came onto the train and asked if I needed help with my bag. I must have seemed like the perfect sucked with my moment of indecision because I knew Buddhi has arranged for a driver to meet me at the train–but I didn’t know where or whether it was like the airports where...
