So emotional right now, because we can FINALLY present our caravan, our home, our baby Lunaaaaa to all of you!
It's been quite a journey to get her in shape. @monkey.inc and @trulynomadly have been a two person team for a while now, but the minute they hit Gangtok, the local people went to unfathomable lengths to help fix her up over the past 3 days. One long, painful all-nighter and another mentally exhausting scary mignight garage rendezvous later, she is finally bright and happy on this sojourn around Sikkim!
Back in Bangalore, when she was first painted blue, the colour was totally messed up. We didn't know any better, and it turned out very dark and meh. After a whole week of paint prep, we had to go back to the drawing board for a second time. And that's when we got her to this minty fresh blue which we absolutely loved. But with Indian vehicle modification laws, came the decision to wrap her in white vinyl sticker to get her across state borders without cop issues. Once she hit Siliguri though, with the white sticker, out came many sections of our yummy blue! 😭
Ahhhh, long agonizing story short, we found some angels in disguise who helped us paint her Again overnight, and then @whirlwnd worked hard with us over another 12 hour overnight shift to get the art on both sides finished in time. We went with a simplistic nature theme with Sikkimise style Thangka clouds on this side you see, all handpainted and designed a day before it went up on Luna.
And then, our trip officially began last evening. We got out of Gangtok and made it to the idyllic Temi Tea Gardens in Southern Sikkim and spent the day shooting and taking in the utter beauty of this State.
Sigh. We're home. Caravanning in India is an adventure everyday. And we've learnt so much from it already! ❤️
So glad to be collaborating with @jockeyindia and @jockeywoman , thank you for bringing our dream to life! And huge thanks to our caravan partners @trippywheels for giving us Luna, @amrutamofficial for being our self-care partners and @ourguestdiary for being bomb local partners! 🤗
