    what an interesting month you had and I agree with you that the you were protected and guided throughout the journey, covering long distance in a small car and visiting beautiful places, meeting new people … I would say parul your own positive attitude towards life has enabled you to have new experiences and yes definitely everything around you worked towards safety, security and I am not surprised that you are thanking the stars:) stay blessed !!

    Your trip sounds wonderful. What a great idea to sum up the positive aspects of your month – it’s so easy to just think of the negatives so your way is much better.

    Happy to know that your Ladakh trip trip was great. For us city folks, not being connected is hard to imagine, but I really look forward to such trips. I enjoy being in remote places in Himalayas. Disconnected with the modern world but 100% connected with myself! I wish I could take one such trip right now!

    I feel if we think positive, everything will fall in place! Enjoyed reading your post, Parul!

    Sounds amazing! Altitude sickness is awful though and it doesn’t really ease. I am thankful for a safe and happy holiday in Paris this August

    Parul, we seemed to have missed each other in Ladakh. I was there too from 22 to 27th august and I was alone. it was my first solo trip and I too had a illness-free trip 🙂 You did it by road, that is something else. Good to know that there were wonderful people to help you and feed you along the way. The folks there are very helpful and friendly. Great post on gratitude.

  10. Wow That sounds like a great adventure! My plans always get ruined in one or the other way but i finally manage to get out of the situation. Hence, I know the pain when one had to suffer with failed travel plans. That was the reason why I felt happy while reading your post and knowing that everything went on as planned! 🙂

    That is quite an August! Sounds like you had a great time.

  13. Brought a huge smile on my face. For everything that can possibly go wrong there a dozen things that go right. You have penned it so beautifully. Being grateful is just so essential Parul especially to keep the good souls going 🙂 Glad you had a great time in Leh! 🙂

  14. So glad you had a wonderful month! It sounds like you had some lucky stars aligned in your favor! Here’s to hoping it continues in September! 🙂

    I too believe that nature and stars help us a lot . in your case u both were full of positive thoughts that u have to go to Leh , and that hidden waves ‘of positivity helped u . i wish i could be as positive as u . Hope so ….
    but it is true that we want proper information and details of your fabulous trip so that if we could’nt go at least we can see it through your eyes . Please also share your some thrilling , amazing , goose bump experiences , some experiences related spiritualism which touched your soul.
    loved your post on thank giving .

    […] This recent road trip to Ladakh was slightly different. We didn’t drive from Bangalore and the car wasn’t ours. We flew to Delhi and took to train to VT’s hometown in Kurukshetra (150 kms from Delhi). From there, we picked up his father’s car and began our longest road trip to the mountains. 12 days on the road, a Maruti Alto K10 full of food and water along with necessary car stuff, and an amazing alignment of stars. A lot of things could have gone wrong with the two of us traveling alone but they did not.  […]
