Leaving India, and Beyond.....

USA | Saturday, 5 May 2012 | Views [438]

While in Rishikesh, I had to make some decisions about the next part of my journey as my India visa was due to expire in about 9 days (I acquired the visa in November before I left the U.S.) I had originally planned to fly to Nepal, then on to Turkey ... Read more >


Rishikesh

INDIA | Saturday, 5 May 2012 | Views [627]

I arrived in Rishikesh early in the morning via overnight bus from Delhi. The bus drops you off at the Ganges across the river from Swarg Ashram. I walked along the ghats to the footbridge to get to Swarg Ashram; this was no easy feat as I have ... Read more >

Goa, India

INDIA | Saturday, 14 Apr 2012 | Views [445]

I almost bypassed Goa after hearing about how crowded it was and how you get so pestered by beach vendors.   I guess going at the end of the season (beginning of April) is the way   to go then, because - while hot - the beach is breezy, beautiful, ... Read more >

Hampi, Karnataka

INDIA | Saturday, 14 Apr 2012 | Views [240]

When I left the ashram I headed for Bangalore knowing that I could go anywhere from there.   I took a bus and arrived in Bangalore on a Sunday afternoon.    As I made my way from the bus terminal looking for a room, I was plagued by a persistent ... Read more >


Amritapuri Ashram, Kerala

INDIA | Saturday, 14 Apr 2012 | Views [3105] | Comments [2]

I have to start by saying that this was my first real ashram experience in India.   This was one of the stops that I'd wanted to make when I was planning my journey as I've admired Amma and have been curious about her for years.   I'd seen film ... Read more >

Kerala - Ft. Cochin and the backwater

INDIA | Saturday, 14 Apr 2012 | Views [380]

I decided to fly from Udaipur to Kochi, Kerala - I'm finding that booking a train within a few days of when I want to leave is hit or miss - mostly miss - as all the seats that are reservable are reserved, and I haven't been brave enough or willing ... Read more >

Udaipur, Rajasthan

INDIA | Sunday, 1 Apr 2012 | Views [393]

I can see how Udaipur gets its reputation as "the most romantic city" in this part of the world. There is a "floating" palace and several other structures in the lake - it's all lit up at night and is absolutely gorgeous from ... Read more >


Animal Aide Unlimited, Udaipur

INDIA | Tuesday, 13 Mar 2012 | Views [447]

While in Udaipur I visited one of the few animal shelters in India. This one was started by an American family about 10 years ago and since then they have treated over 130,000 animals. Most of the dogs in India live on the streets, in fact, I've ... Read more >
