Uncontactable: My Husband is in the Himalayas 18


It is so hard to have thousands of miles between you and your beloved, and it’s even harder when you have no contact for nearly a week!

My husband had to travel to Himachal Pradesh (western Himalayas) for work this week and this region doesn’t have any network coverage. It has shown me how much of my day I spend talking with him over Whatsapp, Viber, Facebook and Skype. Thank you God for technology! I have a voicemail from him and I must have listened to this 28 second voicemail over 100 times. I miss his voice so badly!

I have been waking up disappointed because I usually have some messages waiting for me. I went to a coffee shop after work today while usually I am rushing home to Skype him: I had to eat the largest possible piece of chocolate cake simply to console myself.

I am just counting down the hours until he is back in Nagpur. I love Nagpur, with its network coverage and internet. I cannot believe how traumatic and distressing not speaking to him has been for me, every passing second I am wondering what he is doing and how he is feeling. Geographically he may actually be closer to me whilst he is in the Himalayas but without access to the internet or network coverage he could not be further away.

Until he returns I will keep listening to my 28 second voicemail, eat lots of cake and talk to him as if he can hear me.. If I close my eyes and concentration I can feel the warmth of my husband besides me.

    It must be scary not being able to contact him! I’m sure the week will fly by and he will be home before you know it.
    I love your blog and your story by the way…..it’s like a modern-day fairytale (with a good dose of technology!).

    I remember times like this, when my husband would go for 10 days or so to the mountains. Those wore the longest 10 days of my life. Just like you, I had no idea what to do with myself after work. I wasn’t rushing home to skype with him and it felt like my life was pretty empty. So I can relate to your feelings right now. Just know that he will be back soon and with so many wonderful stories to tell and pictures to show!

      Oh yes, the exact same situation. I too feel so empty… so used to him being a click away. He is on his way home to Nagpur TODAY! I am so excited to see his face on the screen- it feels like forever!

      Soon I will be in India permanently and will make sure I am with him on these business trips. x

      It is soooo hard isn’t it!! He is back in Nagpur, so we can communicate constantly now via whatsapp and skype so phewww…but I just cannot wait until October 24th when I will be back in India and by his side!!

      I hope your partner is back now!! <3

    It’s very nice to hear you love yor husband so much and I am pretty sure without knowing you, that he is fond of you too. It will be so nice when you reunite, it’s sometimes distance that keeps the passion growing and alive. Wishing you to hear from him very soon!

    It’s wonderful to have such a sincere love for someone. I can relate also because I often have found myself rereading messages and replaying voicemails when I miss someone far away.

    ah, Lauren…so beautiful to discover your blog and feel the very high vibration of the twin flame union…and to know you and your beloved are playing such an essential role in the transformation of all humanity…the depths of love and joy between you and your beloved are infinite
