There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign...Robert Louis Stevenson
Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world...Gustave Flaubert.

Into the unknown, first steps in India, kerela..then onwards.

First time in India is an experience I'll never forget, it stimulates all the senses. Kerela is known for its lush landscapes, national parks,and a network of navigable backwaters, Inland are the Western Ghats, mountainous regions where tea, coffee and spice plantations abound. I had adventures and made many new friends, experiencing places I'd always dreamed of and thought I never would get to. I also had a few R&R breaks on some incredibly unspoiled beaches, Which you will no doubt be eager to embrace when you do it yourself. Get your flights booked!. Its easier than you think.

If you haven't taken the leap of faith and stepped outside the world of package tours and organised trips, then look no further. Hopefully what I learnt on my route will help and inform you. I am not a photographer , so my photos are taken on my phone, dont expect professional travel style pics. If I want to show something I saw and didn't take a picture when I was there, then I acknowledge the source of any I use..
