Kashmir here I come

Motor, Travelbug Comments Off on Kashmir here I come

North IndiaI finally decided how I’m going to spend my vacation this year. Last year I went on a motortrip in North Vietnam. This year (starting August 22) the destination will be North India / Kashmir.

Some 2500 kilometers in 21 days on an Enfield Bullet 500, starting and ending in New Delhi. During the trip we will see the India/Pakistan border, visit the current residence of the Dalai Lama, meeting Kashmiries and riding the highest road in the world (5602 meters). We will sleep in all types of hotels, a houseboat and even big tents. The diversity is big: all kinds of different peoples, religions and scenery’s. The weatherconditions will be ranging from very hot (New Delhi) to cold (high in the Himalya). Kashmire

Like last year, this trip is organised by motortrails.nl. At this time there are 8 other dutch/belgium people who will join as well, but there’s still a room for 3 more. The trip will be led by an experienced guide, with the assistance of a mechanic and a chauffeur.

I still have time to prepare and learn the language. Most important: how to order a cold beer.

Blogging his ass off

Blogging his ass off

Yesterday evening my danish friend Mick arrived. Mick started on May 1st with his quest to find the meaning of live. Well not exactly that, but a good reason to burn all ships behind him and start traveling around the world on his VFR motorbike.

The first days he visited some friends in Denmark to say goodbye to them and now, after a pit-stop in Kiel – Germany, he is here to do the same.

His bike is overloaded with all the gear he has taken with him. On arrival yesterday evening he immediately decided to leave some things behind in Beuningen, hoping he will not need them in the months to come.

There is a pair of fresh rubbers (tires that is) laying ready for him in my ched. He sent them a month ago and is going to replace them one of these days by hand. Good luck to him. I will stand by and look how he gets that done. Will take some pictures of it as well to brighten up this blog.

This morning I first cleaned up his laptop, added more memory and updated the bios. Tomorrow I will exchange the internal disk with a bigger one, `cause the 80 GB disk is full already.

After a couple cups of coffee Mick was alive and ready again to blog the past days on his website (at the same time that I’m blogging this). I recon I have to clean out his laptop again tomorrow. Smoking will typing is the biggest deadthreat for laptops. Still wonder how long his laptop will last during his travels. Backups? Who needs them?
