  • India: Observations and CuriositiesAs we were travelling around India, like a good little pretend-journalist I noted down any little things that peaked my interest and I have listed them below.

  • 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.

  • India: North Goa - CalanguteUnderstandably, the 3am flight from Mumbai to Goa made us pretty damn tired. Delirious in fact.

  • 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
