Splurging in India

Splurging in India
It may surprise you that India is one of the best places to splurge and to be treated like royalty for a day or a week! You can dine using gold-plated silverware at Taj Rambagh Palace (yes, a real palace!) in Jaipur or be serenaded by a flute-player while gazing over Udaipur city on your swing at Taj Lake Palace. You can journey to the Himalayas for a yoga retreat or down south on a boat sailing the waters of Kerala where all your meals are cooked fresh for from local produce. Or enjoy a private classical Indian concert at the home of local musicians. On some  trips to India , we westay at the Taj Lake Palace which is set in the middle of Lake Pichola in Udaipur, Rajasthan. It was built from 1743 – 1746 by the former Maharana Jagat Singh II as a royal summer palace. To reach...

Tiger - A Love Story

Tiger - A Love Story
      My life-long dream of seeing tigers in the wild took me to on a journey to the wilds of Kanha and Bandhavgarh National Parks in the exotic land of India . Kanha National Park is well known as the inspiration for Rudyard Kipling’s amazing story Jungle Book and offers enchanting scenic beauty and beautiful sunsets. Although I did not have the good fortune to see tigers at Kanha (many in our group did) I did see and abundance of other wildlife including sloth bear, sambar, spotted deer and plenty of playful monkeys. My dream of seeing a tiger came true in Bandavgarh and it was spectacular! I was completely over come with a sense of joy and wonder – a breathtaking, spine tingling experience. Once I started believing what I was seeing, a feeling of calm washed over me. I became very still and quietly enjoyed this magnificent cat. Dreams do come true! Anne Kutay...

Thanks For The Memories of India

TajMahal4
  Thanks for the memories Of things I can't forget The people I met I did my part India's not for the faint of heart. Thanks for the memories Days spent on a bumpy ride Seeking tigers that hide. How thrilling it was Thanks for the memories Of jeep safaris And silky saris Squirrels that fly Souvenirs we buy How delightful it was Thanks for the memories The cows, the rickshaws The tucs and big trucks The traffic in the streets How I prayed and shrieked How crazy it was     Thanks for the memories Of lunch and dinner curries Rice, Nan and Pooris How tasty it was Thanks for the memories The Taj at evening and at dawn Eternal Ganges rolls along A skull near the river That gave me a shiver How sobering it was Karma Sutra carved in stone Positions Christians wouldn't condone I would need a book...

5 Reasons to Start Planning a Trip to India

Untitled-_20180122-202650_1
1. The Tigers   They are big, beautiful and endangered, but travelers can still see  tigers in India  in the wild. There may be as few as 3,200 wild tigers left in existence, with an estimated 3,800 remaining in India. Three tiger subspecies (Bali, Javan and Caspian) have already gone extinct and a fourth (the South China tiger) the next on the brink. Illegal poaching is the primary cause of the tiger's decline, driven by black market demand for tiger skins, bones and organs. The wild tiger once roamed throughout much of Asia. Today, this magnificent cat remains in just 7% of its original habitat. Shrinking tiger habitat is becoming increasingly fragmented due to encroachment by commercial uses and expanding human populations around tiger habitat.   2. There is more to India than the Taj Mahal Everyone goes on  tours to India  for the Taj Mahal but few know about the Chambal River Sanctuary, located nearby....
