    Default The wind, bike & heart; Tour De North

    Its all about the freedom of life on the road, a personal adventure that leads a biker to the highlands of North Pakistan. I done this trip during the flood of 2010, infact it got flooded in the midst of my this journey. This adventure started with passion, hope, fear of unseen and ended giving experience & memories of good times to be recalled. It also helped me discover myself and taught me lessons to be remembered.

    Some Statistics:
    Days Spent: 35
    Distance Covered: 6300km (home to home)

    Default Day2

    Day2:
    Got up in the morning around 7 AM. packed the luggage and set off for Islamabad via GT Road. I asked Irfan about the tomb of Emperor Jahangir, whose pic was printed at the back side of our old currency note of denomination 1000. He told me that its near to Shahdra and he also never visited there. So we decided to visit it as it was very near to GT Road after crossing Ravi bridge. Lahore is a vast city enriched with historical and cultural heritage. In my dozens, if not hundreds, of trips to Lahore i still feel that yet lot to be explored/visited in the city. So i try to cover one or two sites, that i never visited before, in my each visit. So this time it was turn of Jahangir's Tomb.

    Pic taken outside Irfan's house. Ready to go.

    We filled the fuel tank of bike upto its max limit, at a filling station somewhere near to Irfan's house. Stopped near Yadgar(Meenar-e-Pakistan) for couple of minutes to take shots.

    From Shahdra stop at GT Road a small paved road on right side (if coming from Ravi side) leads one to the tombs of Emperor Jahangir and Queen Noor Jahan. We took that turn and reached Jahangir's tomb.

    Boundary wall of the compound inwhich tombs of Jahangir and Mirza Abul-Hassan aka Asif Khan(brother of Queen Noor Jahan) are located.

    I was interested in taking shot of the tomb just like it was at the back side of depricated currency note of denomination 1000. But it was morning time and sun was right infront of us. So couldn't take a clear pic of the building from front side. Some trys shown below:

    Back side and side shot of the building. You can clearly see the difference created by sun light effect.
