Delhi to Katmandu, Part 10

In 2010, I went on an amazing trip, from Delhi to Katmandu. I just want to use this Post to share with you some of the photographs I took on the way. Both were amazing countries and India was particularly vibrant and exciting. Some of the photos were taken through vehicle windows, so i apologise for the poor quality. I don’t propose to write very much, Although my third novel,  Devils with Wings: Frozen Sun, is now with my publisher, Silverwood Books,  I have started on my new ‘Cold War’ series. So please just enjoy the pictures. The journey continues…
