Back from India

So I’m back from India, and that was a life experience! The trip has taken it out of me, but what an extraordinary country. India, for someone who is going there for the first time, not knowing what to expect, can only be described as a complete and utter assault on every sense you possess!

But now back to reality. Not too long ago I was talking about going contracting. This is the month I go about taking the actual plunge, before I jet off again on a quick trip around Italy soon – I know I’m taking advantage of the time off to do some much needed travelling. 🙂

I promise more technical posts will follow! Watch this space.

Escaping to the Himalayas

As some of you might know, I’m a bit of a biker, and also a little bit nuts sometimes. When you combine these two things, you will end up with a crazy idea like going to the Himalayas and riding around there on a Royal Enfield. So that’s exactly what I’m about to do! 🙂

I’ve decided to sign up with Blazing Trails and do one of their tours from Manali to Leh. I’ve never been to India before, and I’ve also never done a bike tour like this before – complete bike tour virgin! 🙂 Oh and did I mention I’m going on my own, not knowing a soul on tour!? Yeah I’m definitely nuts! I’ll more than likely be offline for the majority of the time, so this is a quick post to say “See you in +/-2 weeks!”

I suspect that by the time I return, I’ll be completely exhausted, but would have gained a life time experience. Here goes nothing….
