National Geographic Traveler‘s October issue hit newsstands last week, and features a narrative of Peter McBride’s journey to Rishikesh, India — a place the author describes as a “shopping mall for spirituality straddling the Ganges.”
Though McBride went to the “world capital of yoga” to heal an ailing back, he left with a new appreciation for the mind-body connection with a little help from a Royal Enfield motorcycle and a “symbolic charioteer.” (Read the full story here to find out what I mean.)
He can also now touch his toes.
