  • India: South Goa - Patnem and PalolemAfter 3 days in Calangute we were happy to be moving on. We very much enjoyed the heat, the beach and Alor hotel but we wanted to move on to somewhere quieter and less Westernised. After a 2 hour taxi Posted by advensha in Advensha | Feb 13, 2016
  • Interesting ShoppingWe had a slower start this morning because we had some food to eat for breakfast here. We also had the internet for the first time in a day, so we tried to get caught up while we could. When Posted by katdill in Sri Lanka, the Maldives and India | Feb 13, 2016
  • Feb 13th: Last Stop, UdiapurThis, the last day of my India adventure, has been pretty laid back by Rosemary (Journeys for Women) standards. We actually had the whole morning to ourselves and did not have to board a bus until 1:00. So Posted by Follow Carol in Northern India | Feb 13, 2016
  • Ernakulam and KathakaliWe set off to go to Ernakulam, which is the city here, in contrast with Fort Kochi, the tourist destination. Our hostess had told us there were international banks there, so we hoped our Mastercards would work there. We decided Posted by katdill in Sri Lanka, the Maldives and India | Feb 12, 2016
  • Exploring Fort KochiWe got going fairly early because we had no food for breakfast. We found a fruit and vegetable store fairly close by and bought bananas. We walked along the shore past a beach and the Chinese fishing nets. There was Posted by katdill in Sri Lanka, the Maldives and India | Feb 12, 2016
  • Feb 12th: Road to UdaipurBefore I departed on this adventure, I was asked by many what the weather in India is like at this time of year. I just realized that I haven’t really talked about the weather. It’s great. It’s Posted by Follow Carol in Northern India | Feb 12, 2016
  • India: North Goa - CalanguteUnderstandably, the 3am flight from Mumbai to Goa made us pretty damn tired. Delirious in fact. The flight itself was typical but there were a few things that made us all very giggly. Firstly, the music playing during boarding was Posted by advensha in Advensha | Feb 12, 2016
  • Feb 11th: JodhpurThose military jets must be Indian since I am still here to tell the story. They aren’t flying tonight, thank heaven. But the wedding party is still going on. These things go on for days, I guess. Posted by Follow Carol in Northern India | Feb 11, 2016
  • India: Ahmedabad and MumbaiAfter a lovely, more chilled few days in Udaipur we were off on an early local bus to Ahmedabad. The bus had sleeper cabins or pods (with a bottom and top 'bunk') on one side and standard coach-like seats Posted by advensha in Advensha | Feb 11, 2016
  • Farewell to the MaldivesWe had to get up early and have an early breakfast to catch the 7:00 am speedboat into Male. We got there around 9:00 and then took the ferry over to the airport. We would have liked to look around Posted by katdill in Sri Lanka, the Maldives and India | Feb 11, 2016
  • 31. The days slip byLast stop on our beach vacation was Varkala. A heavenly town perched on top of the edge of dizzying cliffs, where the Arabian Sea stretches so far it blends into the horizon.

  • 30. Floating through lifeNext up we headed down the coast to the well-known town of Alleppey.

  • Feb 10th: Road to JodhpurToday was a long travel day, but I enjoyed watching the farms and villages go by. Unfortunately, one of the ladies in the group is sick today. I understand she was up all night with diarrhea and vomiting. Posted by Follow Carol in Northern India | Feb 10, 2016
  • 29. The eyeball shakesBefore heading to what would be over favorite place in India (look out for the next blog post on this), we stopped over in Kochi (Cochin).

  • Feb 9th: Jaipur and ElephantsJaipur is the capital of the state of Rajasthan. It is a big, metropolitan city with a population of 6.7MM. There are actual stores here, rather than stalls, and there are restaurants rather than stalls and there are Posted by Follow Carol in Northern India | Feb 9, 2016
  • Feb 8th: Road to JaipurWell crap. I have a cold which kept me up most of the night. I am sure that no one believes me, but I am never sick, at least not at home. But get me on a Posted by Follow Carol in Northern India | Feb 8, 2016
  • 28. Hampi to MysuruWe figured we could use a break from the sun, so we headed out of Goa and made way south, to central Karnataka. The province is a blend of banana plantations, palaces, beaches and tiger reserves, but the reason for Posted by mm_lukes in and so the adventure begins ... | Feb 8, 2016
  • Feb 7th: The Taj Mahal[center][/center] Do you realize that I actually walked through the Taj Mahal this morning? My reactions to the whole experience have been all over the map. First I was stunned by the vastnes Posted by Follow Carol in Northern India | Feb 7, 2016
  • India: UdaipurOnce again we had an early start to get a local train from Ajmer station to Udaipur from Pushkar. We were the first in the hotel's restaurant and it seemed like the servers had been woken up just to feed Posted by advensha in Advensha | Feb 6, 2016
  • Feb 6th: AgraAs I write this I am sitting in the hotel bar, drinking a passable chenin blanc and watching a sitar player and his accompanying percussionist play for the lobby. No I am not kidding. The rest of the Posted by Follow Carol in Northern India | Feb 6, 2016
  • India: PushkarAfter the night we'd had in Tordi, I for one was glad our next stop was Pushkar; the spiritual home of India, a Hindu pilgrimage, a place where no meat, eggs or alcohol can be found or consumed. A veritable Posted by advensha in Advensha | Feb 6, 2016
  • Goodbye IndiaWe're out of here Posted by kforge in Kevin & Jeni 2016 - Rajasthan | Feb 5, 2016
  • Feb 5th: The GangesBy the time I got to bed last night, I had convinced myself that I would not get up at 5:00, to meet in the lobby at 6:00, to walk through the crazy streets of Varanasi down to the river Posted by Follow Carol in Northern India | Feb 5, 2016
  • Agra to DelhiAfter a long and boring drive from Agra, we arrived about 6pm and said goodbye to our driver Shankr and his assistant Ranwi The following day we did a little tour [img=ht Posted by kforge in Kevin & Jeni 2016 - Rajasthan | Feb 4, 2016
  • 27. Straight for the beachTime to toss out the shoes and put some sand between our toes. We took the first train out of Delhi and headed straight to the Goan beaches. By this time we were pretty use to train rides but this Posted by mm_lukes in and so the adventure begins ... | Feb 4, 2016
