Boy, this climate change stuff is really getting out of hand.
It’s either that or you’re prepping for Ski and Surf: From the Majestic Himalaya to Goa in Style. It’s both a mouthful to say and a 13-day trip traversing snowy Himalayan peaks and reclining on sunny Goan shores, now booking for a February 14 send-off. (Here’s a visual preview.)
Right, so packing could prove difficult. Better start with this stuff.
A Good Pair of Shoes: You’ll land in Delhi, where you’ll spend a day walking the streets, seeing the sights and shopping in bazaars before heading to Gulmarg for four days of skiing.
A (Very) Close Friend: Given the whole Valentine’s Day timing and double-occupancy rooms with wood-burning fireplaces and whatnot.
Ski Goggles: Take a gondola from Gulmarg to the summit, where you can negotiate powdery slopes at upwards of 13,000 feet. And see clearly, if you packed right.
Sunscreen: Après-ski, you’ll fly to Goa for five days of SPF-30-type activities that may include but are not limited to: surfing, sunbathing, beachside yoga and shading your drinks with little umbrellas.
Your Passport: Hopefully you’re not reading this on your way to the airport.
