Travelling is an ongoing part of my life. When I’m not doing it, I’m inevitably thinking about it, reading about it and planning the next trip somewhere!
And that's exactly what I'll share with you...thoughts and articles - mine and others - on travelling - travel planning, tips for packing, where I'm going, where I am and the people I meet along the road.
Be prepared for an overdose of India - if I'm not there at least once a year I suffer withdrawal, and feel that something is missing from my life!! Welcome and enjoy.....
New Delhi - a great arrival point for first time travelers to India! The beautiful spacious avenues, circles and parks of Lutyens Delhi, designed and constructed to cement Britain's colonial grip on its most prized procession, is a gentle introduction to India's inescapable history and apart of the fabric that knits India's past and present together. A trip into Old Delhi- a rickshaw ride through Chandni Chowk and a stroll around the vast Jama Masjid mosque is the perfect preface to your India journey!

India would have to be undisputedly one of the most fascinating and culturally complex countries on earth. for hundreds of years its sophistication in art, philosophy, mathematics, astronomy as well as its natural wealth has been an irresistible magnet to the great inquiring minds and greed hands of history. A favorite 'India' quote - "The land of dreams and romance. The country of a hundred nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, birthplace of speech and mother of history. The one land that having seen once, by even a glimpse, one would not give that glimpse for all the shows of all the rest of the globe combined." Mark Twain
