Awaiting India Posted October 26, 2013


Only 3 more nights until we head of for another women's travel adventure to Northern India. People often ask me why I keep going back. What is it about this country that draws me? I it very hard to put into words but the most eloquent description I  have heard yet was during  the movie "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel".  During afternoon tea one of the characters  who clearly could not bear to be in India asked another who loved being there, "What do you see that I don't?" He responded: "Unutterable beauty. Everywhere. In the light, the colours, the smiles, the people who see life as a privilege not a right and so they teach me something every day."

If you have not seen the movie it is well worth watching. It may even inspire you to join us on one of our upcoming adventures to India.

If you would like to follow us on our journey bookmark this blog. I will post as I am able.

    My ancestry is South Indian. Being a third generation Mauritian, I grew up French and English speaking until my late teens and left Mauritius for UK. I always was fascinated by India. Now living in Victoria, Canada and hearing about your experiences, it is drawing my attention to this part of the world that my ancestors left behind, friends, family and possessions to jump on a boat to a paradise island, full of empty promises and never returned home. It pulls at my heartstrings but your journey to India has inspired me to find out more. Thank you!

    And I saw The Best Exotic Marigold hotel a few months ago as I am fond of everything British. It was just awesome. Great acting and a great laugh. I agree with Cathy, worth seeing.
