  • End of the trackWe have sadly come to the end of our rail tour and will be saying farewell to Bernie who will be returning to London. We travelled back from Jaipur on a coach to Delhi (we would have done by train Posted by MaggieSyd in Our Adventures | Nov 14, 2016
  • Last Day in JaipurWe started the day with a visit to the Amber Fort, not named Amber because of the colour but either because they used to grow mangoes (Am) there or after the God Amber. It is most likely the latter. The Posted by MaggieSyd in Our Adventures | Nov 13, 2016
  • MumbaiWednesday 9th November Jet Airways flight 9W 117 touches down at Mumbai Airport just before 11.00 am, remarkably on time, and after the usual scramble to get off the plane, I clear immigration, pick up my bag, (as always with Posted by MalcolmB in India 2016-17 | Nov 13, 2016
  • Guiness Book of Records dayWe started the day with a visit to the [[http://msmsmuseum.com/index.php|Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum]] or the City Palace.

  • One of the seven wondersWe left Delhi Nizamuddin station and caught the Gatimaan Express (supposedly India's newest and fastest train) to Agra.

  • Delhi Part TwoWe left Shimla by car at 7.30am to make our return trip to Delhi. The car ride was about 4 hours to Chandigarh where we boarded the Shatabdi Express for Delhi. The train was supposed to get us back into Posted by MaggieSyd in Our Adventures | Nov 9, 2016

  • ShimlaA guide and cars picked us up at the hotel in the morning and we drove to [[https://goo.gl/maps/oTfQbYxcCiS2|Fagu]]. The small town is in the Himalayas and from here we had a 360 degree view of the surrounding terraces (where they Posted by MaggieSyd in Our Adventures | Nov 7, 2016
  • ShimlaWe left the Le Meridien mid morning after a short walk to the presidential palace. It was still very smokey. After our walk we checked out and took a taxi to our new hotel the ITc Maurya which was the Posted by MaggieSyd in Our Adventures | Nov 6, 2016

  • Sham Valley, LadakhThere’s nothing quite like walking into a snow storm on a mountain pass 3,900 metres above sea level with no shelter in sight, no companion – and wearing a pair of shorts. Perhaps I’m embellishing the actual danger I Posted by Liamps in Liam's Globo Trip | Nov 3, 2016
  • Day twoWe decided to visit Trip Advisor's 2nd top attraction in Delhi, [[http://akshardham.com|Swaminarayan Akshardhan]].

  • 2016 - 23rd ~ 25th AUGUST ~ SHAM VALLEY TREK Up at the crack of dawn, well 06:00, and packed up. We asked the old lady for breakfast, which was to become the norm – omelette, chapattis, butter, jam and milk tea. Everything was fine a Posted by kellytours in KELLY TOURS | Nov 1, 2016
  • New DelhiArrived into Delhi around 6pm and was surprised that it was nearly dark. I guess you forget you are in the northern hemisphere and coming into winter, especially when the temperature is 30C. We got a prepaid taxi which ended Posted by MaggieSyd in Our Adventures | Oct 31, 2016
  • Leh, LadakhLeh Ladakh is venerated as the “Land of Monasteries”, a remote region of stunning Himalayan scenery, Tibetan Buddhist culture and uncharacteristic peacefulness and quietness for India.

  • Kinnaur – Spiti ValleysAfter just five days in the utter mayhem and stifling heat of modern Indian cities, I escaped to the cool and sparsely populated mountains and valleys of the Indian Himalayas. It was spine-tinglingly exciting to be travelling into the world’s Posted by Liamps in Liam's Globo Trip | Oct 25, 2016
  • Mumbai to HoustonI realised that I didn't carry a pen on me to fill in the immigration form. An American I guess had just finished filling his form. I requested to use his pen. He gave me though was wondering how he Posted by aaboo in My first US Trip | Oct 21, 2016
  • Cochin - IndiaA torrential down-pour greeted us as we drifted into the port of Cochin. That put paid to any idea of a sunrise, the grey sky met the grey sea and it was impossible to distinguish the horizon. My Posted by greynomadm in 2016-09 UK to Sydney | Oct 22, 2016
  • India Tomorrow - Day Three at SeaSame old routine, Internet upload, await the sunrise, have breakfast and prepare for another sea day. First event was the destination presentation for Phuket. We were hoping to do an 'on your own' tour of the town but Posted by greynomadm in 2016-09 UK to Sydney | Oct 22, 2016
  • Heading for India - Day Two at SeaStarted the day by doing battle with the flakey Internet, today requiring three re-connections to get through.

  • Destination India - Day One at SeaThe first of three days on our way to Cochin in India.

The daily routine started with Posted by greynomadm in 2016-09 UK to Sydney | Oct 19, 2016
