Safari experience at Ranthambore

Planning a safari inevitably leads one to think of Africa, but… think twice! Asia has some wonderful opportunities. If big cats are your thing, think no more and head to India. Bengal tigers are definitely a big draw. In search of them, we headed towards Ranthambore National Park, covering 392 km2 in Rajasthan. The choice was easily supported by the park’s proximity to Jaipur, a city full of history and with good international connections. Low-cost airlines offer direct flights from Singapore at affordable prices (about 300 SGD return trip).

A Day in Jodhpur, The Majestic Blue City

Jodhpur – is one of the largest cities in Rajasthan, India, acknowledged for its unique rhapsody of the blue houses and its mighty Mehrangarh Fort. Known as the gateway to the Thar Desert, it is located about 340 km from Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan.  It was the last city I visited on my summer vacation last year. I did not expect much at first because it was just our alternative stop before going back to Ahmedabad from Agra. Yet, Jodhpur is like an oasis in the desert, offering more than you ever wish for.

Local Bazaars of Jaipur

Think of Rajasthan and its extravagant beauty immediately flashes in the mind. Rajasthan, a northern state of India is well known for its scenic beauty, scrumptious food, delectable delicacies and beautiful monuments; and the place where one could find all of them is Jaipur- the capital of the state. Popularly known as the “Pink City”, it is the largest city of Rajasthan.

Colors, Music and Happiness

Navratri means “nine nights” it is one of the most wonderful festivals celebrated all over India and Nepal. This festival happen in the beginning of October but the exactly date is determinate according with the Lunar Calendar. You can choose any of the magicals cities of Rajasthan as Jaipur (The Pink city), Udaipur (City of Lakes), Jodhpur (the Blue city) or Jaisalmer (the city inside a forte), these options are the traditional and organized for tourist, wich are really nice and colorful but if you are more like me and want to go for a really native experience I‘m going to suggest to go for any city in Gujarat. In my case a choose Vadodara or in English Baroda.  Baroda is located 6 hours way by train from Mumbai and 2 from Ahmadabad, the largest city of the state.  If you want to know a nice and traditional India, you should come and visit it. Gujarat is the home of Gandhi and who preached unity between all religions and became a worldwide figure for peaceful struggle against tyranny. Because of that, Gujarat is a dry state. Dry state? How come can it be?  Well is one of the few states in India, where Indians are not allow to drink and foreigner have to ask for a permission to buy in some hotels 5 beers per week or 2 bottles of any alcohol they sell (mostly Vodka, Whisky, Indian Wine called “Sula” and Rum)..They actually have a register of how much alcohol you buy. Also most all the people living there is vegetarian but you can find some restaurants than offer some chicken and lamb dishes but you will never find beef.

Train Travel in India

After three and a half years in the UK and Europe my husband and I were returning home to New Zealand.  We timed our return so we could attend my niece’s wedding to a Punjabi man, in India.  We flew into New Delhi in mid-October, travelled north by train to Nangal Dam and at the end of several days of celebrations flew back to New Delhi and began two weeks of visiting the cities of Varanasi, Agra, Jaipur and Jodhpur, before returning to New Delhi for our flights home.

INDIA: The Magical Wonders of Agra

Early February 2016, my family and I travelled to North India and visited 4 major cities, Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Jodhpur. To save all the excitement and keep you wondering, I have decided to share with you my travels in Agra first since it is the most beautiful of all the 4 cities I visited. We hired a private tour that took us in a SUV for just the four of us to all the four cities. The cities were far apart so yes, they were pretty long car rides with short stops along the way for lunch and tea.
