Take Your Purse and Go

What does this sign mean? As we hiked along the road from our vacation rental to a (hopefully) cleaner hotel, we saw this road sign and speculated as to its purpose. ...

Lydi Talks About Travel and Moldy Pillows on Himalayan Hike to New Hotel

Our first night in Naddi Village was a nightmare, but we persevered to find a new hotel, acceptably clean and accommodating hotel near Mcleodganj. In this video, Lydian and I talk about the crappy things that happen when we're traveling. At this point in the journey, we still hadn't found a new place to stay and weren't sure whether there would even be a place with electricity and clean pillows.Related ...

Naddi Village: Lydi Makes Besan Dollups

In this video, Lydi talks about the day over her chickpea dollups. We'd gotten up early for a flight that had been delayed several times and then rode up a hill in a taxi...an unforgettable ride with a car-tuk tuk accident that happened partway through the journey, and then we arrived at a vacation rental that was two separate rooms instead of one. We were prepared to deal with it until the electricity went ...

A Grocery Store Near Dal Lake Between Naddi Village and Mcleodganj

This video shows a quick overview of the Rahan General Store that sits right across from Dal Lake, near the tuk tuks that head downhill to Mcleodganj. Across the street from the general store is a fruit and ...

Kangra Airport: Dharamshala to Mcleodganj Taxi Ride up the Mountain

We've ridden in a lot of taxis all over the world, and Indian taxi rides are always entertaining to the max, but the ride from Dharamshala to Mcleodganj and then onward to our vacation rental in Naddi Village was by far the most intense road trip we'd ever taken. Along the way there were monkeys, cows, and goats in the road. A recent landslide led to a car-tuk tuk accident right ahead of us. Lots of people ...
