Bardia National Park – Jeep Safari

Bardia National Park is in the Western Region of Nepal and the best place in the world to see wild tigers!

Rickshaw Run – Driving through Konya Wildlife Reserve

The Rickshaw Run – Gujarat to Mumbai

It was quite a relief to arrive safely in Surat without any serious breakdowns.  Morning Glory pulled her weight from Khambot for almost 250km all the way to Surat but sadly we didn’t make it out of Gujarat by sundown.  That meant we were still in a dry state on the Rickshaw Run but we got Read More …
