Picture Perfect Pokhara

NEPAL | Wednesday, 6 Mar 2013 | Views [398]

We relaxed in Mr B’s lovely garden in Bardia until it was time to jump in his jeep and rattle along the track to the main road. Seats had been booked for us and the 14hr journey to Pokhara cost Rs1000 (about $12 now that we’ve moved on to ... Read more >

Beauty and the Beastless in Bardia

NEPAL | Sunday, 3 Mar 2013 | Views [384]

Mr B’s is quite a basic place but the rooms are spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. They’re set around lovely gardens that attract a whole host of birds and the entire area is very peaceful. The food we had was very tasty but we feel ... Read more >


A Long, Long Journey to Nepal

NEPAL | Friday, 1 Mar 2013 | Views [596]

We started the day with another civilised, relaxed breakfast in the garden of Hotel Fairhaven before embarking on our day’s travel.  First of all we employed shanks pony to get us to the cycle rickshaw stand at our end of the lake.  For ... Read more >

Back to the Raj Era in Nainital

INDIA | Thursday, 28 Feb 2013 | Views [424]

We were up early again to catch the 7.30am bus to Nainital just 65kms away.  On being dropped at the bus stand we were instantly bundled onto a Nainital bus that didn’t conform to any times we’d been given!  We had great seats at ... Read more >

Not Striking it Lucky in Corbett National Park

INDIA | Tuesday, 26 Feb 2013 | Views [240]

Luckily Corbett Motel had a room so we dumped our bags on the floor and crawled into bed for a couple of hour’s kip – well it was only 5.30am.  The room is very basic with concrete flooring but is clean enough and the bathroom is pretty ... Read more >

The Sun Finally Shines on the Golden Temple and a Brief Detour to Delhi

INDIA | Sunday, 24 Feb 2013 | Views [308]

We were pleased to see that this night bus wasn’t as grim as some of the others and for once actually got a bit of sleep.  Neelam Tours sell the tickets for Rs550 but we’d paid Rs100 commission as the bloke in Bikaner had sorted it all ... Read more >

Holy Rats in Bikaner

INDIA | Friday, 22 Feb 2013 | Views [235]

We were up at 5am to catch the early morning but to Bikaner.  The hotel staff dropped us of and the bus was suspiciously empty when we set off and it left on time – hmm!  I wondered what the real departure time was when we simply moved ... Read more >

Forts and Camels in Jaisalmer

INDIA | Thursday, 21 Feb 2013 | Views [186]

The bus leaving Udaipur on time is the only good thing I can say about the over-night journey to Jaisalmer.  It seems that with every sleeper bus we take the standard and the cleanliness noticeable diminishes.  We’d been sold a ticket ... Read more >

A Walk Down Memory Lane in Udaipur

INDIA | Tuesday, 19 Feb 2013 | Views [273]

Udaipur is actually quite a large city but all the places of interest and therefore hotels, shops, eateries etc are concentrated in a small area.  The most popular being the Lal Ghat area where we started our search for somewhere to stay.  ... Read more >

A Short Jaunt to Junagadh

INDIA | Saturday, 16 Feb 2013 | Views [239]

You know when I’ve talked about times where something niggling or annoying happens and sets the pattern for the rest of the day or several days?  Well it appears the opposite can also be true; Steve was right last night and it seems our fortunes ... Read more >
