I know we haven't updated our blog in a while but for good reason.
Having escaped the heat of Rishikesh, we headed straight for Shimla, a hill station and once the British summer HQ in the Indian state of Himichal Pradesh. We spent a few days there taking in the cooler days and spectacular views. From there we also arranged a 11 day trek to the Himalayas.
So needless to say, we spent a lot of time in really tiny villages surrounded by beautiful snow capped mountains and unbelievable scenery. Truly spectacular!!!
As you can imagine, hot, or even, running water was often nowhere to be found and hence, updating the blog was not even an option.
However, today we arrived in Dharmsala - the home of the Dalai Lama - and will be here for the next few days.. well at long as it takes to update the blog of our trek and just generally catch up with modern life.
