Hi. I first travelled India in 1995 for 6 months and fell in love ...with India. All my travelling has been on a budget and there have been many scrapes and strange episodes including a paramedic stitching himself up, contracting Malaria (that was just a bad cold), the usual Goan nonsence, and a mysterious German guy.
My favourite destinations are Hampi, Mumbai, Delhi, North Goa, Shimla, Manali, Pushkar, Bangalore, Kovalam, Mahablipuram and Jaisalmer.
The only way to get around India is by train and rickshaw and always sample the chai!
