India will always hold a very special place in my heart. I was just twenty six years old when I set off for the adventure of a lifetime in March 2004. Moreover, it was the first time I’d planned such a long trip lasting several months. No wonder India continues to hold a particularly romanticised space in the old memory bank.

Visit India on the boat from Mumbai to Elephanta Island

Visit India: Elephanta Island, Mumbai Harbour.

While much of that trip (which saw me travel almost the entire length of the country) was exceptionally challenging, I wouldn’t change a single moment. My only regret, if you can call it that, is that I have so few photographs of those magical months.

Visit India, travel India, explore India, discover India

Nevertheless, I have managed to turn what I do have into a modest selection of travel reports. Definitely among the trickiest I’ve ever done on these pages but hey, I didn’t want to omit India from the travel report library.

The Taj Mahal in Agra.

Visit India: The incomparable Taj Mahal in Agra.

So here they are, a memorable string of locations that include a desert camel safari and an afternoon bathing elephants. Articles that cover the trials and tribulations of a certain pink city and the unparalleled beauty of one of Planet Earth’s most captivating buildings.

These locations, among others, also feature in my short story collection Incidents in India.
