Freedom by foot

On the 9th of September 2011 we set out from England to the continent by ferry to begin our adventure in earnest. By foot we will make our way to the first destination, which is Milan, from there we will be flying over to Bangalore for an archaeological conference (as you do) and an escape from the harsh European winter.

At any and all points in our little wander we will be on the look out for interesting and exciting places and people to learn from. Our journey begins with a zeal for experiencing ancient and traditional life & new innovative ways of living for the future.

Mapping it out

Our adventures continue
but with the company of a powerful little cat

Whilst acting out the famous 5 (which of course includes Mieko the cat) here in Jorhat for the last week. We have enjoyed a relaxed festive season, and managed to do things that sometimes traveling makes it hard to allow time for. For instance catching up with our blog entries, diaries and notes, making sure we get down everything we’ve seen and also writing Marc’s MA funding application, for without this wonderful setting this would have proved to be much more of a challenge to complete. We took a trip to Sonipur for a couple of days to stay again at DASK in the small village Dharikathi, on the north bank. I collected the Gal (pronounced Galay) I had ordered on our last trip, which one of the ladies in the village wove on her waist loom. This is the traditional tribal skirt here, hand woven with a complex pattern all the way down the back, a real treasure to take home. Now we are back at our home from home in Jorhat and preparing for our next adventure. On the 1st January 2012 (already?????), we leave for Dimapur, to explore the other end of Nagaland. From here we are sure there will be many more adventures to tell. Until then we hope that you can bring yourselves to read all of the blogs we have just posted. A jolly good lesson to us both to try and keep it up to date. Here is a map of our travels over the last month or so. Enjoy.
