    Wow, awesome pics and excellent trip log. Pics like these tempt me to go on a Leh-Ladakh trip when I get my ride.

    Fabulous beginning to a much anticipated thread. If this is what the quality of the write-up and photography is already, right at the very beginning of this journey, I can only imagine what is yet to come.

    You're photography is definitely getting better in leaps and bounds, as the days go by. I've noticed something slightly bothersome about photography during long bike tours. Despite the numerous photo opportunities, the amazing locales and the pre-planning and enthusiasm, taking good quality photos become extremely difficult during arduous and lengthy travels on 2 wheels, firstly because stopping to take photos takes away a lot of valuable travel time, and secondly, after a very tiring ride stretching upto 10-12 hours, the exhausted body and mind find it difficult to cope with going that extra mile to capture and focus for good photography. Hats off to seasoned tourers like you and many others, who seem to perform majestically on the photography front too, after a long and tiring ride! Am yet to figure out a solution to this, as far as my tours and photography goes.

    Brigitte sure is a brave soul. To have travelled all alone to India, and that too for this tough ride to the Himalayas, it sure takes a lot more than just enthusiasm and passion. And as always, Mael is a pro. Being pillion for such long stretches demands patience and skill of a different class, and a pat on the back to him too.

    Anyway, hope the updates come fast and in plenty. Cant wait to know what happened next...
