The Weird, Wacky and Wonderful

A travel blog entry by mattgottwald


... nice guy! Just as I was about to give up and call the guesthouse to come and get me, Jaswant's female cousin appeared and had two tickets - one for him and one for me! I have no idea when he asked her to get me a ticket or why he was queuing if she was buying his ticket but I certainly wasn't complaining. He'd even arranged friends to save seats on the train so that I even ended up with a whole bench to sleep on.I shouldn't have been surprised of his answer when I asked what he did ...

We Are Travelers of Both Time and Space

A travel blog entry by steve_julie


... have no reason to doubt him. The smokers take him seriously and as they are edging toward some manner of extinguishing, the cop breaks. The son of a ***** knows Akbar and it turns into laughs and posing for the camera. This was the very best thing that could have happened on our entrance to Srinagar. Now we know we are safe.

I was fanging along, keeping speed so I would minimise my hike when I came over a hill and saw a garden of rocks below me, the rest is very hazy but it appears I came down on top of the rocks and knocked myself out. I vaguely recall a friendly chap from Melbourne picking me up in a drunken state. Noone really knows how long I was out for. I was ...

Houseboat Heaven and Hell

A travel blog entry by thestewarts


... were there, but the downside to that is that you’re at the mercy of the ‘Shikara (lake-boat) Mafia’, as the only way to access them is from the water. We were unfortunate to end up with the laziest Shikara driver in the world - they charge by the hour so I think they try to go as slow as possible to make as much money as they can! We’d discounted any of the house boats at the busy enclave around Dal Gate and the boulevard - they were all squished in next ...
