If anyone tells you they are travelling to Dharamsala to see the Dalai Lama, they will be heading up to McLeod Ganj, (via a very steep and winding road!)

I've finally arrived at Chandra Yoga, following 26 hours of door-to-door travelling. After surviving on a cocktail of Gatorade and coffee, my tired traveller's body isn't feeling like a model 'temple'. Failing to commemorate the last mouthful of caffeine and chewing on the final ‘Fruitella’, I am surprised at my willingness to go cold turkey on these everyday addictions…I must be tired!! Yet in all honesty, I am really looking...
