Back after the Annapurna circuit, where recent snowstorms have taken the lives of 39 mountaineers, I met this sadhu who was on his way to Muktinath. Sadhus are Hindu ascetics. They are supposed to be in the fourth phase of the Hindu reincarnation and their modus vivendi consists in renouncing the mundane and based their life on meditating and thus finding the fundamental values of our existence.
Last weekend we published the results of the survey in which we asked you what was your favorite guide. The chosen one was Lonely Planet.

With the slow but consistent improvement of the quality of Irish roads, it becomes increasingly easy to spend a different weekend on the Emerald Island. Tired of the Dublin rainy routine and pubs, last weekend we decided to rent a car to make a short break for a couple of days through several towns south of the capital, to appreciate its rain and pubs.
