A Sad Parting of Ways...

Today Travis and I said a sad goodby to Leslie, Eric, and Carrie. They headed down the windy road from Darjeeling to Bagdora and then boarded the first of many planes that will take them back to CT. We were sad to see them go, but we all had an incredible time over the past few weeks. The trek was a great time to strain the body instead of the mind - lots of strenuous hiking, but plenty of quiet beauty. We spent 4 nights, 5 days in the foothills of the Himalayas and didn't see much but fog - despite multiple 5:30am wakeups to try and have a clear view. One morning we jumped out of bed, ran up a hill, and were rewarded with a few glimpses of the elusive and beautiful mountains - spectacular and huge!

Travis and I are enjoying a couple relaxing days in Darjeeling and then head to Thailand on April 1st. We are wishing Leslie, Eric, and Carrie a safe trip home and will try to post pictures over the next couple days - send us speedy internet wishes everyone!

Hi Travis and Sarah,
So glad that you had a wonderful Indian adventure. I know you are looking forward to a fabulous time in Thailand as well. I mentioned to Travis that I have a friend who I have known for 37 years. I did a bunch of travelling with her back in the days. She lives in Phuket Thailand about a block from the beach. She is an American that relocated there about 5 years ago after falling in love with it. If you decide to head that way, please let me know. She would love for you to visit and I am sure she would want you to stay with her at her house. Let me know and I will hook it up!
