So after a couple of days in Pushkar, we were back on the road again for another eight hours, this time for a bit of an excursion to Ranthambhore, home of the Tiger Safari. Or not… Here we had our first illness. Evan spent the whole day in a dark air-conditioned hotel room, throwing, Read More

Monday wasn’t actually very smug at all, it was actually pretty rubbish.  We spent eight hours in a car driving to Pushkar, and then spent another hour and a half listening to daddy have arguments about rubbish hotels.  A few days later though, we arrived at Agra… We have now been to the Taj, Read More

Day five of our whirlwind tour of Rajasthan in a car saw us in Jodhpur and the ‘Blue City’ has turned out to be one of our favourites. We stayed at K.P. Haveli Hotel for two nights, recommended by our Lonely Planet guide book no less. An interesting mish-mash of rooms beautifully decorated with, Read More

A word about Indian driving.  Drivers in India are insane.  Properly insane.  I’m surprised there are any of them left.  Every day in India, 400 people die on the roads.  That’s about 3.6 deaths every minute.  And to be honest, I’m not bloody surprised.  

Our first day in Delhi was a bit overwhelming after the relative calmness of Nepal. Despite the posh new airport being a bit like Heathrow, our taxi driver was still quite aggressive and the street our hotel was on was still in the main market street which was a huge scrum of people, stalls,, Read More

Today, we hopped in the car for an eight hour journey with Joni our Indian driver, towards Jaisalmer.  However, we did not go to Jaisalmer, we went to the desert near Jaisalmer to go on a camel safari instead.  Once we got there we named one camel Jeff, and found out the other camel’s, Read More

  It has been thirteen years since we were in Delhi, and in that time, the city seems to have completely changed. It was the last point on our first India tour and it’s safe to say that by the time we arrived, we were thoroughly India’d out. We’ve started our India tour in, Read More

This weekend we have been rafting on the seti river. At first we only wanted gentle water but at the end we were yelling, at the top of our lungs, for more meter-high waves. We were in a rafting group of nine people.  There were two rafts and we us four were in one, Read More

  I’m struggling with where to start with this post. There are so many things, opinions and stories to tell that it’s difficult to know where to begin. I don’t want to write a diary type post, where I just catalogue what happened on each day, as that would have to be about 10,000, Read More

We’ve pretty much based the dates for the whole year’s adventure with the kids around the trekking seasons in Nepal, so, you can imagine the levels of excitement as we piled into our massively overpriced jeep (there’s a fuel shortage you know, and getting hold of petrol is becoming increasingly difficult and expensive) and, Read More
