The Travels. The Stories.

North India – March 2011

This was the tour that was.

Everyday was incredible. We traveled the north of India, taking in famous sights.

But we didn’t stop there. A Bollywood great graciously invited us to her home and cooked her favourite dishes for us. There were cooking demos in royal palaces and royal homes. Cocktails with Maharajas on a terrace overlooking a shimmering lake. Personalised hand-delivered invitations bearing the royal seal. Colours of Holi infused the air as we danced. On a second class sleeper train, we made friends with the 99.999% of Indians who do not live in palaces. An evening under the stars at a 300-year old fort palace on the banks of a holy river has us rubbing our eyes as hundreds of welcoming diyas floated towards us.

Everyday brought fresh delights. Everyday brought murmurs of “pinch me, am I dreaming?”
