Hanging in Delhi

Friday, 29 Jan 2010 | Views [1317] | Comments [3]

I’m lying in bed feeling quite sorry for myself as I have conveniently contracted a ripper cold at the end of my trip. On the bright side, I decided to hang in Delhi for my final days and attempt to get some work done before I start my new role on Wednesday, ... Read more >

The Venice of the East

Saturday, 23 Jan 2010 | Views [1070]

WARNING: This post may overuse the term ‘amazing’ and its synonyms.   I have just loved Udaipur . It is an amazing city with a serene ambience despite the plethora of tourists. I wish that my last week was here. The shop-lined streets wind ... Read more >

Nimaj Bagh

Thursday, 21 Jan 2010 | Views [1844] | Comments [1]

I smell delicious. Aside from being possibly the best opening line to a blog post ever, it’s also not entirely true. I DID smell delicious last night, after having a massage from a local woman with coconut oil. But, I’m getting too far ahead of myself ... Read more >

A more different colour

Thursday, 21 Jan 2010 | Views [745] | Comments [1]

I am starting to get very settled in this trip and not wanting to come home just yet. Thankfully I don’t have to go home soon, even though the end of the tour draws closer. I was a little sad to only have only 1 day in Jodhpur , because it didn’t ... Read more >

The Golden City

Tuesday, 19 Jan 2010 | Views [667] | Comments [1]

I need to think of a new nickname. Perhaps Tired-Tron version 1.3b. Or maybe Weary McWearyson. Miss Fatigue 2010? Oooh! Weary Woman Wonder. I could wear lycra. I have spent a good two days checking out Jaisalmer, the aptly named Golden City…..well, it’s ... Read more >

Bikaner and surrounds in 8 paragraphs or less

Bikaner is the town/area in India that has the largest number of camels and also holds an annual camel festival where traders and tourists come from across the country to do business and enjoy the festivities. After the camel safari all we wanted ... Read more >

Driving camels near Bikaner

Sunday, 17 Jan 2010 | Views [621] | Comments [1]

They call me Mrs. Exhausteraterey Pants. Well, they might. I have finally gotten to a real bed in a hotel after the overnight camel safari and the overnight sleeper train, and I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in a while. If it wasn’t for the 6am ... Read more >

Jaipur in a long winded nutshell

Sunday, 17 Jan 2010 | Views [717] | Comments [1]

I’m sitting in my room listening to fireworks pepper the night sky of Jaipur, and thought that whilst I wait to take the overnight sleeper train to Bikaner I might ‘pencil’ my thoughts down on Jaipur. We arrived in late in the afternoon on ... Read more >

Tordi Garh (part two)

Wednesday, 13 Jan 2010 | Views [4335] | Comments [4]

Getting up in the morning I felt like SHITE but I was still excited to go and meet the villagers of Tordi Garh. We had a briefing where Paddy instructed us that we were not to buy anything or give anything to the locals (tips, pencils, whatever) ... Read more >

Tordi Garh

Wednesday, 13 Jan 2010 | Views [2470] | Comments [2]

I’m lying in bed feeling very sorry for myself (IBS + cold, not Delhi belly before you ask!) but I still have a sense of contentment and wonder. We have just made it to Jaipur after spending not quite 24 hours in the amazing little village Tordi Garh.... Read more >

Taj Ma-what?

Monday, 11 Jan 2010 | Views [868] | Comments [2]

Apologies to all those waiting with bated breath for my first post (I know, there are hundreds of you). I haven’t had much to report as I have essentially stayed inside and tried to get some work done until we started the tour today. I’m sure you ... Read more >

A long time coming.

Wednesday, 6 Jan 2010 | Views [804] | Comments [5]

Finally, I am off to India tomorrow morning. The one that got away last year, and although it's not quite in the manner that I had originally intended, I can't wait!! I have to admit I feel a little conflicted - the trip I've been longing to take, ... Read more >
