My favourite Indian street food
Living in Thailand we have got very used to being able to pick up snacks and meals on the street. In place of highstreets there are street markets and that suits me just fine!  India was all that and more; on buses and trains, people would pile on at every stop and walk […]

Here in Varanasi
    We arrived in Varanasi after a week in the mountains and a 22 hour train journey. It was five weeks into our India trip.   We were tired. Tired of travelling on a tight budget, tired of sleeping in depressing rooms, and tired of eating curry for almost every meal. […]

Trekking in India
  Despite the circumstances surrounding it, the Poon Hill Trek was a highlight of our 8 week holiday last year and we were both keen to do something similar again. So when we were planning our trip to North India, we couldn’t resist another venture into the Himalayas.   We […]

Adh Kumbh Mela
  You probably haven’t heard of Haridwar but anyone who has seen Karl Pilkington’s ‘An Idiot Abroad’ will remember his obsession with the ‘babas’ at a big Hindu festival. That was the Haridwar Kumbh Mela which is a mass Hindu pilgrimage to bathe in the sacred Ganges and is one […]

Here in Delhi
  I’d expected Delhi to come at me like a slap face. I thought that my senses would be overwhelmed and I would be intimidated by the madness of the city. And I nervously anticipated learning to love the chaos and embrace the smells.   Possibly (probably) because we had been in […]

We loved exploring the sights smells and tastes of New and Old Delhi and took a day trip to Agra because we could hardly miss one of the seven wonders of the world!   Here’s a quick video of our adventures – it ends rather abruptly as I got ill […]

  Jaipur got us at a bad time.   Neither of us were feeling great and we had some issues getting into our guesthouse when we arrived. Not a good start.   We also got Jaipur at a bad time. The city is currently building a metro system which meant […]

On a camel in Jaisalmer
After the noise and bustle of Udaipur and Jodhpur, Jaisalmer provided some welcome calm. The main traffic on it’s wide, sandy streets was cattle and even the smaller alleys inside the fort were quiet.   As you approach the city, the fort rises up out of the desert like a […]

Jodhpur wasn’t our favourite city – it’s streets and shopping couldn’t compete with beautiful Udaipur but we loved many things there and it’s definitely worth a visit.   More on our favourite parts of Jodhpur here. But for now, enjoy this video ….     Subscribe to our YouTube channel […]

Jodhpur vlog

Here in Jodhpur
  As a city we didn’t enjoy Jodhpur as much Udaipur – we missed the packed winding streets that had seemed so daunting at first. We missed the endless markets and beautiful paintings on walls and doorways. I could (and we did!) spend hours wandering deeper and deeper into the […]
