While I am on the topic of travel, I was fortunate enough to do some travelling in India earlier this year.
For my first ever experience of this country I decided to set us a punishing itinerary covering a huge swathe of Rajasthan then dipping into Kerela.
Flying into Delhi in December, we were head first into one of the wettest, coldest months they’d had for a few years – typical!
So with rain macks donned we were shown the frentic sights of Delhi courtesy of a tour arranged by Delhi Magic – a fantastic company who I can’t recommend enough.
From the serene yet damp surroundings of Humayans Tomb to the packed streets of Old Delhi, we were literally head first into a maze of colours, smells and sensations that were completely bewildering, frustrating at times but always incredible.
Tasty food at Pindis!
On our second day our assured little guide took us on the metro, whizzed us round temples and mosques. We encountered lots of interesting characters including this gentleman taking it easy!
Then we ordered our first ever proper Indian Thali at Haldiram’s in Delhi. Very tasty!! (Apart from the dessert which was so perfumed it was like eating toilet cleaner!! – Not to my taste)
Next up were the amazing markets, full of hustle and bustle, food and socialising, take a look at some of the street food – fab!
