Transformers - Age of Extinction

We do watch all sci-fi english films like X-men and I have liked all earlier transformers. But I definitely didn't like the dumbing down of female characters in the series. Megan Fox was much better in first two movies and looked ready to stand equal in fighting the alien warfare. Then since Megan Fox's departure from the series, the lead lady role needs to be protected and isn't much of a fighter.

Solo Bike Journey to Ladakh

My husband is an avid biker and he has been to Ladakh on a solo trip last year. He had a great trip and being inspired by Jim Rogers (of the Investment Biker fame); he has written a detailed travelogue of his own sojourn.

And just like Jim Rogers, he dreams of going on a world tour on his bike some day.

The Ladakh travelogue is in form of a blog series whose links are mentioned below:

Part 1: Mumbai - Manali

Part 2: Manali - Leh

Part 3: Khardung-La & Nubra Valley

Part 4: Chang-La & Pangong Tso

Part 5: Leh - Manali - Delhi

Although I have been on a bike ride to Konkan with him.

A small account of Konkan ride written by me is:

I wish one day I will also get the courage to attempt such a journey on a motor bike ! :)

The photograph of the Ladakh trip, which I find to be most memorable is this one:

Love the innocent smiles of the kids against a bright background !
