Day 8 - We had a flight back to Delhi. At Leh airport, hand baggage is not permitted. All the baggage, except ladies hand bag had to be checked in. We had a morning flight and we really were at the airport with super fascinating memories and fantastic experience of our lives.
Packing list- If you are travelling in the month of May- June, pack the mix of clothes for normal and woolen wear. Its sunny bright , very windy in ladakh. Pangong has chilly winds and there is where you might require full warmer with layer to sweater and a jacket and a cap would be must. For rest of the points carrying layers is the best. Full sleeves shirt/ top would save you from tanning in a way. Carry suns cream for get saved from sun, Goggles are must to save your eyes from UV rays and carry kapoor, to ease the breathing where you feel oxygen is less.
8-Mountains of various shapes, carving and colors
Travelling is a passion. The more you travel, more you get to know about yourself. You travel solo, with your partner or with your family. Each experience is very very different, though each one leads to happiness. For me it was a travel with my partner, my friend for life. During that time, while you are away from the daily routine of your life and your commitments, you find that time when you are with just one person and yourself. The way you share your thoughts, ecstasy, sad memories which strike in the darkness sometimes (yes the same memories which have made you strong and are making you stronger everyday), belongings, and for sure your time is a lifetime experience.... You end up doing the crazy stuff which you never thought you would ever do.
Since we had a group travel, I didn't even experience the togetherness of my partner but also fortunately mingled and settled for a family companionship. There was a family travelling with us. Mother- The Super woman and Gynecologist by profession, Father- The wonder man and Orthopedist, Son- Young, dashing, subtle, energized and challenging boy, Daughter - Naughty, bold, beautiful, and talkative girl. Their togetherness brought the best flavor to our trip. The best ever possible things happened there on. The warmth of family is such that it warms people around too, so that's what happened with us. We truly adorably enjoyed each other's company. Got to know how beautiful , helpful, caring, humble, STRANGERS can be and who turn out to be friends and well-wishers. I can say that's the best thing that Ezeego1 gave us, each other's company in the lonely planet.
