"Short stories and travel reports from my life adventures around the globe".


Visit India, travel India, explore India, discover India

India will always hold a very special place in my heart. I was twenty six years old when I embarked on my first bout of proper traveling. As such, that long ago trip has occupied a particularly romanticized space in the Leighton memory bank. That unforgettable Indian adventure also spawned my first set of short stories, tales that I edited a thousand times over before finally sharing on this site in their final form. I only rue the fact that I took so few photographs and that what shots I did get were of generally poor quality. Ah, well… an excuse to go back one day!
