I had to travel to India to remind me just how lucky I am, it is a place not for the faint hearted, the smells, the experiences of something different that we just do not have here in UK!! the people, the beauty, and the grinding poverty, and filth – such contrasts! a journey worth taking – a journey that had to be taken, but with lovely people who accept things as they are, not to be hidden by any means.
So right Linda. So happy you The Enjoy xxx
Great blog! I cant wait to settle down and go through it. My Mum was born in India and I have future plans to visit her country.

Hi pinky! Nice blog. Ive follow you to get more updates in your photography and writings. Hoping to read a great poem match with a edgy pic. Power!
Oh good, hope you enjoy!! There is one combo coming up. The picture IS rather edgy!!! Peace.
My son Andy gave me your blog page to have a look at and am about to go and have a browse around. I am off to India for a month in Oct and while speaking to Andy he suggested your site, so here I am and off to have a browse.
Fantastic that your heading to India.Where are you planning to visit? Any tips just ask. Pinky.
Flying into Delhi and then we have a few places in mind but nothing definate yet. \list so far not in order are Mysore, Kanha National Park, ooty, Kerala and that’s as far as we have got so far. Hoping to travel by train and just taking minimum luggage ie: backpack as I am sure we can pick up clothing. Any tips would be gratefully recieved.
What time of year are you heading over? If you are heading south i would pop into Gokarna. Beautiful holy beach town south of Goa. Sacred for Hindus and super chilled. A house boat on Kerala is worth the cash and Mumbai is a great city.
You have a wonderful blog! I’ve enjoyed my visit. I look forward to follow your posts. 😀
Thank you Jackie. Do enjoy :0 pinky
Namaste…thank you so much for visiting and following my blog 🙂 it is greatly appreciated. I look forward to following your fabbo blog…

So glad I found your site, it’s inspiring to say the least! I love it. Your travels sound amazing and photographs are incredible.
I have spent this year traveling in SE Asia, currently teacihng English in Vietnam. I’m setting off to China and then Australia in a few weeks time, then… I plan to return to Scotland. I am really looking forward to seeing my friends and family but I am starting to feel like I need another adventure to plan! India sounds incredible. It might be next on my hit list.
Anyway, you can follow my journey here, if you have the chance:
Thanks for such inspiring posts!

Ps, Marley is 2 now and I’ve bought him FERRETS! Of course during this lock down, we have done some Ferret foot prints like the hamster prints I did for the journeys project 😜 was a blast from the past lol.
Lovely to hear from you! Is Marley a human or a dog? 🤩
