I am ready to set sail (err...not literally though) in a couple of weeks. i was supposed to visit three countries, but could manage only two visas...nothing new there though...hmmm...
.
what’s strange is that this time i don’t feel as excited as i usually do. i know it’s a privilege to even feel that way, and i really hope this feeling goes away soon. the feeling is settling...
.
in other news, if you are in uk and have any suggestions on what i can do there, feel free to suggest in the comments below (i might not respond to dms that often) 🙏

i started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.

Bliss...that’s what i thought would happen if i spent much less time in the online world.
.
well, yes it does happen, especially if you are with people you enjoy being with. in nepal it was my friend and colleague, and then in mumbai my friend came over to stay with me. so less social media meant being more available for everything else...
.
so what now? i guess i don’t know 🤷‍♂️

Kathmandu is a city in transformation - it’s changing fast, but it’s also always changing. often change isn’t brought about by a need for change, but a natural calamity - like the previous two earthquakes which devastated the city.
.
the old exists, but is giving way to the new. yet the ‘new’ is often reluctant to let go of the past, so what we have now is a medley of everything. it’s chaotic, yet beautiful...
.
hot and dusty during summers, it’s not the conventional mountain getaway you might imagine it to be. but the city has its gems, often hidden deep in those medieval era narrow lanes and by lanes.
.
what you see is up to you - if you don’t look, #kathmandu won’t just reveal it’s charm voluntarily ❤️

back after a short hiatus in #nepal, i am back online once again 🙋‍♂️
.
it’s a little odd though that while i was super busy travelling on the most inhospitable roads in rural nepal, i didn’t miss instagram even one bit. i tried sharing stories on some days, but my heart was clearly not into it...
.
i wonder if this short break needs to be converted into a long one ☺️

Does it ever happen to you that you sit and dream about travel when you are already travelling?
.
today i have #kashmir on my mind as i sit at the airport in #kathmandu and wait to catch my (much delayed) flight to #pokhara...

the man in the frame is zaid (@zaidtantray ) and if you haven’t his work, you must do it now! also, he’s much friendlier than he looks in this picture :)
