Coming from a military family, the travel bug bit Laura Cahill early on. Born in Honolulu and raised in the Chicago area, she traveled all over the US with her family as a child - particularly to the Rocky Mountain West to explore its national parks. Her love of travel has taken her throughout Southeast Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Antarctica. When not traveling, you can find Laura photographing graffiti in the city or wildflowers in the woods, playing roller derby, or trying to find the perfect street food.

How to Choose the Right Tiger Park in India

DSC_0324
India is home to 70% of the world’s remaining tigers. These majestic cats have been making a fantastic comeback due to conservation efforts after being on the verge of endangered just 20 years ago. Seeing one of these big cats is a once in a lifetime experience and there is no better place than on a trip to India to check that item off the bucket list.

The times change with the season as the park gate opens at sunrise and closes at sunset. In the heart of winter, you’ll find later start times and earlier exit times. 5:00 – Wakeup knock on your door. 5:15 – Tea, coffee, and snacks....
