Kerala, India’s Best Destination.

For those of you new readers, My wife and I live in the UAE. We love it here for many reasons. Certainly not the least of them is the simple fact that travel to Asia, Africa and the sub-continent of India and Nepal is very inexpensive and quite easy. Apologies to my long time readers are in order I guess. […]

Mumbia, India

A couple of weeks ago, my wife said “I’m going to Mumbia for the New Year break, do you want to go?” Well, I could have said no, instead I said “yeah sure”. Her retort was “It is in India you know.” The reason she said that was not a stab at my geographical knowledge, it was to remind me […]

Sunsets Around the World

This is supposed to be an irreverent travel blog. However, I find it hard to be irreverent about a sunset. Before I started blogging, or carrying a digital camera, I watched sunsets from places such as the Altiplano of Bolivia. The North Slope of Alaska. Maui. Santa Monica. Bocas Del Toro. From a sail boat in the middle of the Caribbean. […]

Gandhi’s Last Steps

Post Image

Our last tourist experience in India was to visit the home Gandhi was living in for the last four months of his life. The place has been turned into a museum to commemorate his life and his works. Like the man, it is both humble and impressive. This was the only place in India that has no entrance fee. I […]

The Taj Mahal

Post Image

The Taj. If  it is the only thing you see in India, it is worth the trip. When I was about 10 years old I promised myself I would see the Taj Mahal someday. Often I have heard it called the world’s most beautiful building. It is also called the world’s greatest monument to love. I will certainly admit that […]

However, I wrote this on the spot and it is ready for my hungry readers, so I’ll skip a few days and post it. Your intrepid travelers are now in Delhi […]

Elephants Tigers and Brides, Oh My!

Post Image

Ok, so the groom did not enter the hall on an elephant, and there were no tigers. That is just what I was fantasizing about before I attended my first Indian wedding. There was however a bride. I’m not sure she wanted to be there, but there she was. I’ll begin at 4:00 in the morning. The wedding was to […]

A Journey to India

Post Image

OK so I stole the title of this post. It was an excellent movie and I will try to write something worthy of it. At the moment Mary Ann and I are at 35,000 feet in an Air Arabia A320. We are the only white people. That includes the Pilots and the cabin crew. The plane we were supposed to […]

Will We Get Lost in India?

Mary Ann and I were lamenting the fact that we had not gone anywhere in January. I actually like January in the Arabian Desert, it is very temperate. We have not had the air conditioner on for almost two months. Mary Ann thinks it is freezing. (Folks, it is between 65 and 80 f) She started looking for someplace warm […]
