New stories since last dispatch
Here is a quick summary of all major stories published on India Travel Blog since last newsletter despatch in August
Book Reviews. There are two book reviews posted in the past month.
- Two in a Bush by Gerald Durrell, a travelogue by a naturalist about seeing some strange and exotic fauna in Australi, New Zealnad and Malaya.
- A Journey in Ladakh by Andrew Harvey, a book on author’s quest for spirituality in Ladakh.
Chikmagalur. Read my post about the wet foggy hills of Chikmagalur during the monsoons.
Travel Photography – photographing the mountains. I made a presentation on photographing the mountains to the jury and winners of Club Mahindra My Trip of a Lifetime contest. The slides of the presentation – a collection of images – are now available online. However, the detailed content/audio of the presentation is not available.
Badami. I posted a series of images on the small town of Badami known for its historical cave temples. Besides the beautiful setting of those caves carved in red sandstone, I posted pictures of its landscape, its Agastya lake, people, kids, houses and daily life in the town. See all those posts here.
Posts from Ladakh. The series of travel guides and stories I have been writing on Ladakh have slowed down, but will continue in December. Below are the last three stories.
- I stayed in a small guesthouse owned by friendly Ladakhis in Leh. Here is a post about the people and ambience of the guesthouse.
- Your guide to Leh
- It is commonly assumed that only way to get from place to place in Ladakh is to hire a cab. Public transport does exist but is not frequent. While it may not be practical to wait for a bus to go everywhere, there are some places which can be easily covered by buses. Here is a guide to using public transport in Ladakh.
In November, we will have some posts on travel photography and a few on Ladakh. Also lookout for some fresh images of winter lanscapes. Happy travelling!
