Just got back from a short and sweet trip to Georgia, the country, not the state in the USA. Georgia is a small country tucked away in the beautiful Caucasus region of Europe and Asia and offered me a perfect introduction to Europe with a flavour of Asia.
Late September last year, I ventured out to the highlands of Ladakh in Jammu & Kashmir. I made a journey from Delhi to Leh and back. The goal of the trip was to traverse some of the high Himalayan Mountains of India in the Ladakh region.
Bahrain known as the ‘Pearl of the Gulf’ is a tiny archipelago of a cluster of islands located in the Persian Gulf. Surrounded by water on all sides this place used to be a meeting point of civilizations from antiquity. Although Bahrain is a small country on the map, there are a few sights that can be of interest to the curious traveler. One among these is the Qal’at al Bahrain or the Bahrain Fort or thePortuguese Fort.
The itinerary for the day was to tour Mtskheta, the ancient capital of Georgia. After a light brunch, I got my day pack on with my camera and left to visit this ancient city. My plan was to get back to Tbilisi by nightfall.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank and appreciate fellow blogger Arnav from Eat, Travel, Live, Repeat for nominating my blog for the Liebster Award. It’s such an honor to be selected for this award. It’s been 9 months since I started blogging I have had a wonderful time exploring this whole new passion for writing while traveling the world one holiday at a time.
And so we descended from Gokyo Ri, our last mountain climb of the trek and spent our last night in Gokyo. The next day just before dawn we set out to climb up the Renjo La Pass and complete the three high passes.
Earlier the year I had the opportunity to attend my very first airshow. Bahrain hosts the Bahrain International Airshow every two years at the Sakhir Air Base. The airshow is the fastest growing airshow in the Middle East and is organized by the Civil Aviation Affairs of Bahrain, the Royal Bahrain Air Force and Farnborough International.
And so I was back in India again. My love for the country never fades. I had one place in mind this time around. Across the high mountain passes, lies a land abounding with monasteries and mysteries. The Land of the High Passes – Ladakh! And I was traveling to Leh.
