Paradise in the Andamans and Back to Kolkata for One Last Time

Thursday, 2 May 2013 | Views [348]

We decided to finish the Indian sub-continent leg of our travels with a bit of a treat and some serious relaxation, well after all, we had done some serious trekking in Nepal and some hard core, off the beaten path travel in north India. We reckoned ... Read more >

A Late Night Sweating it out with the Knight Riders to See an Indian God

Wednesday, 24 Apr 2013 | Views [391]

We arrived back in Kolkata from our Sundabans trip in good time and we collected our bag from the office and we were soon checked into Ashreen Guest House just off Sudder Street. Well I say soon, but we of course had to go through the usual rigmarole ... Read more >

Cruising Around The Sundabans

Tuesday, 23 Apr 2013 | Views [388]

We rendezvoused at the office as requested where we were expected and everything seemed to be organised.  Just as well our arrival wasn’t a surprise as we’d paid a 50% deposit the last time we popped into Kolkata.  This 3D/2N trip ... Read more >


Cricket Fever Hits Kolkata

Sunday, 21 Apr 2013 | Views [344]

Our return to Kokata following our improvised ‘tour’ of Bihar & Jharkhard didn’t start smoothly.  The train was an hour behind schedule so the city was up and commuting leaving a dearth of taxis at the pre-paid rank.  ... Read more >

A Hairy Road Trip Through Jharkhand and Bihar

Saturday, 20 Apr 2013 | Views [1381]

Against the odds, considering Ranchi’s aversion to foreigners, by 10am we’d checked out of our hotel, scoffed a good breakfast and were in a private car embarking on a mini trip.  The travel agent mentioned in the Lonely Planet actually ... Read more >


A Dreadful Travel Day

Wednesday, 17 Apr 2013 | Views [340]

We left Chandipur early due to the unfriendly and unaccommodating 8am check-out time.  In actual fact those adjectives nicely sum up the people working in the Asha Nivas guesthouse too.  We proceeded to spend the entire day catching rickety, ... Read more >

Is This Chandipur or Southport?

Tuesday, 16 Apr 2013 | Views [382]

The 10.55am train from Puri to Balasore that we’d initially been told was sold out (but we eventually managed to buy some tickets) was in fact virtually empty.  So we headed back up the tracks on a train that was only running 30mins late by ... Read more >

Chasing the Sun in Odisha

Sunday, 14 Apr 2013 | Views [368]

We didn’t get a great deal of sleep in Kolkata as the city maintained some level of noise and commotion throughout the night.  Plus, we’re not used to feeling warm; being buffeted by a fan instead of being cocooned in covers, felt odd.... Read more >


Darjeeling to Kolkata

Wednesday, 10 Apr 2013 | Views [384]

We splashed out for a private jeep (Rs1500) to take us down to the airport at Bagdogra near Siliguri; a journey that only took 2 ½ hours.  The road between Darjeeling and Kurseong was as rough and congested as ever below that there’... Read more >


Coming Up with Plan D in Darjeeling

Tuesday, 9 Apr 2013 | Views [341]

The first jeep Yuksom to Jarethong only included one barfing bairn and the second jeep from Jarethong to Darjeeling was mercifully vomit free!  Jarethong has a very well organised jeep park where we popped to the loo, grabbed some short-eats for ... Read more >

Seeking Snowy Peaks in Sikkim

Sunday, 7 Apr 2013 | Views [619]

Our 7am jeep to Yuksom set off pretty much on time and initially we had plenty of space.  It wasn’t long before there were 4 of us sharing the back seat.  Being slightly squashed in meant you didn’t get thrown around so much as ... Read more >


25 Hours to Gangtok

Thursday, 4 Apr 2013 | Views [371]

This latest epic journey, and in fact our longest non-stop, started with it taking an hour just to reach Kathmandu’s outskirts.  We had to pull into a couple of places to collect more passengers and in between time we crawled and stuttered ... Read more >
