Karol Bagh - Lalli Singh

We went to the moto market today, a place called Karol Bagh. We already had one recommendation about it, one of the shop-stalls belonged to Mr. Lalli Singh. It turns out to be a legendary place, recommended by the Lonely Planet guide and with plenty of a good feedback. We had kind of sceptical attitude about it, expecting horrendous prices, used bikes and frenetic Indians running around you. But what a surprise! We were attended with a normal looking, nice guy, who explained us generally how do they work, what the deals and their conditions are etc. and obviously showed us the bikes, or actually the only bike that was close to our description (not being the one that we were, not strictly though, looking for). Awwww! Loads of brilliant bikes and this one: Royal Enfield Classic, looked like the fulfilling of our dreams :) The only 350cc they had, black one, with spoked wheels (!), double siting and all the safety and travelling equipment included, from 2014 and 10000km mileage.
I'll not go through all the details, but is enough to say that we're content and exited! At least a very promising sign. Tomorrow or day after tomorrow we'll gonna have a trial ride and we'll be ready to take off!! Wiiii :)

That's how it all looked like:

Karol Bagh market. Busy..;)

No shoes, clean hands and feet before entering as a basis and plenty of gods to choose from, food given away at the foot of a temple. Hare Hare Krishna, hare hare!

The Basque Country - the coast.

It eventually happened. We set off on the 8th, Saturday, very early in the morning - around 4 am, to get on the ferry in Newhaven's port at 9am. From there we go straight to Dieppe in France.
First day went pretty smooth although we found out that highways in France are horrendously expensive, even for the motorbikes. We got near Le Mans, known for its car races: 

First night and tent's set up:



Sunday (9/07) morning we met an English girl with her friend and a dog, called Aritz, who was heading the same direction as us so, luckily, he agreed to take the backpack I was having on me to her van. We worked out the place of our destination to pick it up and spend the night and set off for...the worst day until the very end of our journey (the latter I'll keep it secret for now). We could check off everything worst that could have happened, almost, except from having an accident. Luckily after all. We were soaked wet after heavy rains somewhere in the central France, we lost the…

My Vipassana experience - 2nd time.

Brain enema. Mind decluttering. Brain detox. These and more elaborate are the definitions given by teachers of Vipassana meditation technique I decided to give myself in again, for the 2nd time.




10 days in complete silence, without or at least with a very limited human contact of any kind, with absolutely nothing to distract from looking inward: no reading or writing, no physical exercise - except from one > sitting 10-11hs a day and meditating. I took up the challenge again.

Vipassana is a meditation technique, which is not simply about gathering up your mind, focusing and concentrating it. It is so much more! The principles are non-sectarian and not associated with any philosophy, therefore - utterly universal. What one is focusing on - for some for the first time in their lifes - is the reality, the present moment, as it is. As it is, not as one wants it to be. Purifying one’s mind by constant and very scrupulous observation of the breath and sensations in the body, arising and pa…

Happy travels - Exmoor's coast!

For a long weekend, here: 27-29.05, we went to the Exmoor National Park, in north Devon:





On the way, we gave a lift to the friend's family to the Bristol airport and carried on towards the seaside. After in 2/3s of the way we gave up and took a 'quick' 3 hours nap, for it was 6am :D 
Breakfast on the hill's slope:




First place visited - Woody Bay (right past the Lee Abbey Devon):



(Yeah, I learned how to embed a map directly, woohoo ;) )
Right, so we just spent an afternoon there, as it started raining at some point. Although it was a rocky-beach, rather shallow waters for quite a distance from the shore, still v. pleasant and, most importantly for us at the time, dog-friendly :)









In search for the place to settle overnight we found this beach, at Hele Bay, where we decided to stay on a view point with car park and in the morning went for a nice walk on and around the hill on which there's one of the earliest country leisure trails in England:





From the nature trail…
