Trip of a Lifetime: Kashmir, Leh, Ladakh: Part 1

Hello wonderful people and happy Sunday! I woke up feeling real good this morning. It could be because it’s Sunday, or because we have amazing (rainy) weather, or simply because today is the anniversary of my maiden trip to Kashmir, Leh, Ladakh in 2013. If I call Paris my teenage crush, then Kashmir is definitely my first love! I undoubtedly have the travel bug, I fall in love with places in an instant. I was 8 years old when I first discovered the beauty of Kashmir while participating in an art project. It was on my travel list for a long time before I finally got the chance to…
