Anywhere but the UK Almost three years of saving and hard work since graduation have culminated in this trip. My inspiration has come from reading inumerable atlas's and watching the quality output of the BBC ever since I was a kid. My route has changed in it's scope and length since my orignial ideas. The theme however,remains the same: to get beyond the shores of our tiny island and to experience and explore the world beyond. Oh and to have a good time and not work for six months!

'Ladies and gentlemen the next stop is Agra Cantonment'.  After four and a half hours, the constant lingering smell of piss and God knows how many shouts of 'Chai' we had arrived in Agra.  The train had left Delhi on time, but then managed to fit in ... Read more >
