  • 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. So imagine, for a moment, the difficulty I’ve had being stuck in the house with no work and not even Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Oct 13, 2013
  • 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
  • The Empire Stares Back Dear ex-colonies of the world, In days gone by, we did bad things to you. We catalogued you with our cameras, made you dance at Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Oct 11, 2013
  • Girlpower?Last week I was invited to a Women’s Meeting at the local town hall; Hurrah! thought I. This is where I get to see how all those issues I spent so long reading about are really being dealt with. What Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Oct 11, 2013
  • School DaysWe in the UK may have had a few minor gripes with our education system over the last few years (I, for one, want to overhaul the language system in a bloody scholastic coup, but keep that quiet), but let’s Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Oct 6, 2013
  • Busy... Beetles?So along with the youth centre and trips to temples on the Cultural Exchange, we’ve been doing some pretty interesting classes and activities. This week we’ve saluted the sun in yoga, ridden camels, learned to cook(ish) and attempted to play Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Sep 15, 2013
  • Just a Touch TouristySo let me run by you some of the more touristy stuff the stuff we’ve been up to outside of the centre. But please don’t stress at me for not having photos yet – I’m trying my best! They’re just Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Sep 8, 2013
  • Hit for six in Jaipur, India. The city of Jaipur was the last stop on our tour of the desert state of Rajasthan. We’d timed our visit to meet up with some familiar faces from home: The Australian Cricket team. The Aussies were in town to Posted by elyshahickey in Wanderlysh | Nov 12, 2013
  • Magnificent Manas I had been to Assam only once before. In April of 2010 I'd had a brief a 3-day visit to Kaziran Posted by LisaOnTheRoad in Continuing Love Affair with India! | Nov 11, 2013
  • Jodhpur Here we are in Jodhpur, the blue city (and slightly brown due to the cow poo and dustiness). We are all fort-ed out after another fine example of rich folk building giant walls trying to keep out other slightly less Posted by Niminindia in NimInIndia | Nov 10, 2013
  • The DAAN FoundationLet’s get serious for a moment, and maybe even a tad sentimental, just for a moment. The rise of that new stage of young adult life, the Gap Year, has been surrounded by a lot of discussion about the values Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Sep 3, 2013
  • Namaste!Namaste! We made it to Udaipur (with a gripping 5 hours in Mumbai domestic terminal) and – cliché alert here – are loving every minute of it! So far, we’ve got pretty stuck in with Samvit and the DAAN Foundation Posted by PhilippaW in Cultural Exchange Programme, India | Sep 3, 2013
  • Stoves and soot."How can these people [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-24729073|aim for Mars]], when they can't even make a decent stove?", we were wondering one of this days. Food has been an interesting aspect of this experience, and it promises to conti Posted by Zaspirucho in Thoughts from afar | Nov 9, 2013
  • Jaisalmer Here we are in Jaisalmer. We're very lucky to be staying in the fort which is so beautiful. This is the golden city. Busy, dusty a Posted by Niminindia in NimInIndia | Nov 8, 2013

  • Blue buildings, happy kingsRajasthan or ‘The Land of Kings’ is India’s must see state. Loaded with palaces and tales of elephant battles and feuding maharajas it oozes awe and wonder. The legendary city of Jodhpur with its enormous fort is the perfect example. Posted by elyshahickey in Wanderlysh | Nov 4, 2013
  • Day 3.....We have explored Delhi and its lovely temples and gardens. Been amazed just how much you can cram onto a motorcycle. Drank a little gin in an olde worlde tea room and tried not to die in the rickshaw on Posted by Niminindia in NimInIndia | Nov 4, 2013
  • Once upon an Autumn NightIt's funny how some things turn out. They say that everything you do will help you, or will be useful someday. It does seem that way today, at least if you follow your path. If you take the opportunities that Posted by Zaspirucho in Thoughts from afar | Nov 4, 2013
