I’m extremely excited to announce that myself and Aaron G, who has been featured here before, are going to be spending just under a month bike touring in the northern Indian Himalayas. We just booked our flights, and will be heading out mid August. Currently the plan is to ride a variation of the Manali-Leh route, but that could change soon. I’ve already started the process of acquiring new gear for the trip, so look forward to some pictures and reviews.
I also finally ordered a new camera. It’s a Panasonic GF1, a Micro Four Thirds format camera with interchangeable lenses and a very compact size relative to a DSLR, but a larger sensor than a typical point and shoot camera. I’ve been agonizing over this decision for weeks, but just sold a bunch of old gear so decided to pull the trigger. Several other bloggers and tourers that I’ve met are using this camera and nothing but praise for it.
Here are some pics from a ride I did last week in Walnut Creek
