    Loved it ,Loved it, Loved it...
    I was so hooked to you're travelogue that when i didn't find a fast update i went back and started reading you're leh trip.
    I mean from page 1 i've read that same log at least 4 times..
    I'm very sure I will read this log even more in times to come.
    Sir this is really wonderful . I dont have much to say. Not many can even imagine a drive of 500kms (be it a fiat or not) but here you are discovering the country . :clap :clap :clap :clap

    But not in Golden Temple, Amritsar, where all are treated at par. I would like to visit Harmandir Sahib again and again for their crowd management.
    Yes, it was seen from Sikkim only. Kanchenjunga range. But, to go to those peaks, 2 to 3 days of trekking is involved as there is no access road from there.
    Yes, they are all highly commercialised barring a few like Golden Temple, Amritsar, which is open 24x7.
    Thanks, Ramesh. Surprise comes without warning!
    I am compiling the expenditure details. I shall post them in due course as addenda to this travelogue.
    Thanks a lot, theblack, for superlative appreciation!:)

    Ravi sir, But for the readers of this forum above statement is not applicable. We always get more than what we expect in each of your travelogue:D And we are sure that it will continue for ever.

    Your starting and ending dates are interesting 21 days for travel and 22 days for travelogue. You have given us one more bonus days than you have actually spend.

    While I was following the updates of your journey at your ownership thread I got surprised to see one of the post by you. It was on 13th April and a new member was asking about some queries about Blue and Me (http://www.teamfiat.co.in/linea-1-4-fire/116-my-fabulous-fiat-linea-47.html#post101000) and your reply to that(http://www.teamfiat.co.in/linea-1-4-fire/116-my-fabulous-fiat-linea-47.html#post101045) during the tedious non stop drive was really inspirational for every body. It simply attracted me. It looks easy but how many people in their tight schedule will try to do that. Only few people can do that and they are the people who can generate the spark that you mentioned at the beginning of this thread. You have responded to each and every post to your thread. We have learned lot from your thread.
    I have find many travelogues in many forums but there is nothing stand near to your as it is a unique mixture of passion, patience, dedication, determination, simplicity, sincerity etc etc Looking forward for your next trip.:)

    Every rule has an exception!;) Thanks a lot for superlative compliments, sungoa2010. Many detailed travelogues helped me plan my trip. So, morally, I feel obligated to share my experience in my travelogue, which would be beneficial to somebody in future.
    Thank you, soundar, for the appreciation.

    I really love this spirit of yours.
    Once again thanks for such a lovely & detailed travelogue and very good pictures.

    Two back to back drives of 1500+ KMs, with short power naps of 45 mins., you continue to amaze me, Sir.
    Sir, I would love to listen to some good & bad memories of this trip that you would remember for long.

    Thanks, Arryan. Bad memories? We were victims of bad roads and traffic jams in West Bengal but fortunate enough in not becoming victims of 5 incidents of unsuccessful extortion attempts in Assam.:( Apart these, all are good memories only!:)

    Ravi sir, which drive and travel was most satisfying/enjoyable, Leh or Bhutan, in terms of Drive, Scene etc.??

    If you measure by the yardstick of sheer enjoyment and satisfaction, definitely Kaziranga National Park and Shillong take the top ranks above Bhutan. But, if you want to be adventurous, then the prize goes to Leh/Khardungla with a lot of uncertainties waiting for you all the way!:)
