Why we love India
Travel in India is pretty much like nowhere else in the world. It’s mind-blowing, mind-expanding, mind-boggling and anything but mind-numbing. And with about 1.2 billion people sharing the space, there’s probably that many experiences to be had. In fact almost any experience you can have on the planet can be found here.
That includes an all-night chai-athon while you wait for a cow to finish its nap on the train tracks. In the north you can ride a camel through the Thar Desert, meet the hippies of Jodphur, and live on lassis. Then there’s that little place called the Taj Mahal.
In the south it’s all about the go-slow. There are Kerala’s canals to cruise, Goa’s beaches to go all beach-y on and enough coconuts to build a coconut building out of.

Your safety is our top priority. It’s one of the main things we consider when designing and operating our trips. Here’s some of the ways we help to keep you safe, and a few of the things you can do to make your trip memorable for all the right reasons. Before you travel We monitor travel alerts provided by the Australian, UK, USA and Canadian governments on a daily basis. Before a tour goes on sale we assess any risks and decide how to reduce and manage these. If we determine that an entire trip, part of a trip or an activity is too risky we won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. If we can’t address the issues and improve conditions we might modify an itinerary, change the accommodation or even decide not to travel to a certain location. Our overseas staff and local leaders are trained to address any health and safety concerns during trips. Before you travel, we’ll give you an emergency phone number. You’ll also get comprehensive pre-departure information, with information about vaccinations and other relevant health issues. We’ll also tell you if there’s any special clothing or equipment you need to bring. During your trip: You local leader is trained in first aid and always carries a first aid kit. Being a local means that if something does go wrong they know fastest and most effective way to get help. We’ll also give you a 24-hour emergency number in addition to the emergency destination telephone number. What you can do: Read through all the information we send you. If you’ve got any questions we’re always available to help. Keep an eye out for travel alerts by consulting your local Foreign Office. We also monitor these daily so that we can modify tours if necessary. Get some medical travel advice about the countries you are visiting, particularly about vaccinations and the type of personal first aid kit you should carry. Make sure you tell us any medical conditions, special needs or dietary requirements you might have. Get your vaccinations and take relevant medication well before travelling so they have time to take effect.

It’s often thought that once you have children your opportunities to travel suddenly become limited to European holiday resorts with high-rise hotels and a Kids’ Club run by a sweaty man in a giant purple dolphin suit.
But why should the exploring stop when you’re a parent? Having...Read on...

There's two types of people in this world...meat lovers and non-meat lovers. I guess you could say we're a lot like pizzas that way. But what about that curious new group (who don't have a pizza named after them yet)... the vegans?
