I arrived at Tree of Life at the end of September this year and stayed for a month. It was such a pleasure! I didn't know I was able to feel so at home, in another place than my own. But I did. And quicker than I'd imagined.
This was my first trip to India alone and I definitely left my comfortzone at home :) But host Ajay made me feel at home right away and made sure my stay was as good as it could ever be. Besides being the best cook in the world (I'm spoiled now for the rest of my life, thank you), he talked me home when I was lost in the dark at 30 metres from the appartment, brought me to town each time I couldn't fix a cab and last but not least saved me from a massive spider incident. Haha, the memory alone...........brrrrrrrr!
I stayed at Indra Dev and loved my cosy room. The appartment is excellent, clean, comfortable and with a magnificent view!! Yes, it is noisy. But ey, that's just India.. And to be honest, this being my 4th visit to India, it was the most quiet place I stayed so far.
I'm in love with this crazy, beautiful, sizzling, transforming and extreme sub continent. I felt completely at home in the Dharamshala region and I'll be back next year for sure!!
