Hey guys, I have a month off in January from uni, just wondering if anyone is interested in going to India freestyle - without a guidebook in sight - relying on work of mouth - overlanding through the country without an internal flight.

This is to kind of re-create the idea of the 1970 wandering hippie. I'd like to write an article about this as part of my Journalism module too.

Message me back if you are interested!

Hi Claire,

Yes you can.
Southern India is a great place to travel on train without reservation.
I shall show you some down to earth travel in Tamilnadu.........
