  • RishikeshGreetings. We arrived in the holy northern land of Rishikesh on Saturday. It's quite beautiful countryside, very close to the Himalayas and stuck on the side of the hills with the river Ganga running through it. Those of you young Posted by Niminindia in NimInIndia | Nov 25, 2013
  • Jaipur and the Taj Mahal Posted by Niminindia in NimInIndia | Nov 25, 2013
  • Jaisalmer and JodhpurWe were, in some ways, quite pleased to leave Mumbai: it's not a pretty city and, apart from the oases provided by hotels and expensive restaurants, one is surrounded by noise, people and, to put it bluntly, filth! After Posted by JennyKFE2013 in Far East 2013 | Nov 25, 2013
  • My Indian takeaway Since the last time I wrote we have wrapped up our tour through India. I’ve had word from my editor (Brayden), that my last few posts haven’t included enough of the ‘grit’ India is so infamous for. So this time Posted by elyshahickey in Wanderlysh | Nov 24, 2013
  • Changing winds, changing plansThe lines we drew on the map were based on the October and November winds. But those are almost gone now, and we are still in harbor. From the first day we got here, we had to think of an Posted by Zaspirucho in Thoughts from afar | Nov 24, 2013
  • Magical Kumaon: Serene Ranikhet & Scenic MukteshwarSimilar to our travel plans as always, destined to happen at the very last moment, this time too was no exception to this golden unwritten rule. Winter was gradually setting in. However, Mumbai and Winters are perhaps not synonymous. The Posted by sabyasachi in A Walk in the High Himalayas | Nov 23, 2013
  • Agra and the Taj MahalWe arrived in Agra at just a little after 8am local time and we were very swiftly met by Aslam in a motorised rickshaw. In a scene reminiscent from Australia in 1987 when my Grandad was asked to sit at Posted by Theepictrip13 in The Epic Trip 13 | Nov 22, 2013
  • Dehli (again)...Sorry for the lack of comms there folks, had a wee blip around Jaipur where mum picked up a bug too. All sorter now but we think we've travelled ourselves out over the last 3 weeks and are ready for Posted by Niminindia in NimInIndia | Nov 21, 2013
  • From South Africa - New DelhiWe have arrived in Delhi! After a leaving breakfast with Claire, Richard, Rosemary and Chris at Kirstenbosch we were at Cape Town International Airport exactly 7 days after we arrived!

  • Nov 20th and 21st; last day in MumbaiDaddy was collected in the morning for a half-day meeting with another supplier, about 1 hour\s drive from the city.

  • November 17th - November 20th: IndiaWe had a good flight from HCM to Bangkok, just over an hour; although we had to spend about 3-4 hours in Bangkok airport we were quite happy as it has a huge number of shops, cafes etc to while Posted by JennyKFE2013 in Far East 2013 | Nov 19, 2013
  • RanthamboreRather chilly forests at that! We arrived a little later than planned on Friday due to a 24hr bug I managed to pick up the day before. Spent the late afternoon on sleeping and avoiding crocodiles which attempted to sneak Posted by Niminindia in NimInIndia | Nov 17, 2013
  • UdaipurSooo lovely. City of twinkly lights at night and big white palaces overlooking lake Pichola. It's calmer here and there seem to be less cows (I am developing a cow obsession). We had a little boat ride and I managed Posted by Niminindia in NimInIndia | Nov 13, 2013
  • JojawarJojawar is the stop along the way between Jodhpur and Udaipur for us. We got a bit lost trying to find this place. The dirt road didn't look too sensible and there were lots of rasied eyebrows. However, we hit Posted by Niminindia in NimInIndia | Nov 13, 2013
  • Work, play & sailThere is a general idea that yachts and sailing are a life of luxury and spending, a world reserved for the rich and/or retired. The thing is, the sea is big. Bigger than any human is, and it cares not Posted by Zaspirucho in Thoughts from afar | Nov 13, 2013
  • Taj Mahal – A love story It’s funny visiting a place you have seen so many times in pictures. On my first glimpse of the Taj Mahal I had to keep reminding myself I wasn’t looking at a giant painted backdrop. It truly is one of Posted by elyshahickey in Wanderlysh | Nov 13, 2013
  • Coca Cola CampaignI don’t like Coke. First of all, it doesn’t actually taste like anything else on this planet, which makes me just a little suspicious. Plus it makes your more thirsty than you were before, which to me is exactly the Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Nov 12, 2013
  • Feeeeeeeeed me!You might be wondering why I, amateur gourmande that I am, haven’t said anything yet about food. Well believe you me, it’s not for lack of trying, but every time I attempt to, words literally fail me. How can you, Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Nov 6, 2013
  • Mind your Manners I had thought that my friends and I were as pretty cosmopolitan bunch - we've lived across the world, travelled a lot and come from various different backgrounds. And I guess we are, in our own very European ('Western'? I'm Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Nov 2, 2013
  • All NaturalI’m going to let you into a few secrets, just between friends. You may find what I am about to say disgusting, or even shocking. If you do, I suggest you reconsider any plans you had made to live in Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Oct 25, 2013
  • HindlishLanguage is a strange thing. We say that we are ‘studying’ a language as if it’s a solid entity that can be observed and inspected, like a statue in a museum; but really, they are living entities, constantly morphing and Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Oct 18, 2013
  • Never Leave Home without a PorpoiseThose of you who know me well know that there’s nothing I hate more than a day without a purpose.

  • Random MusingsSome things I don't think I could ever get used to: Being stared at Long distance spitting and loud phlegm removal Hitting (friends, children, pets... anything really) Seeing kids doing manual labour Emaciated and mutilated street animals Dark roo Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Oct 12, 2013
