It’s hard to imagine a country that challenges the senses more than India. It’s a whirlwind adventure of mind, body and spirit and Briony Hearman loved embracing it all…
“During the 3 weeks of Rajasthan Adventure, I met some of the most friendly, curious and entertaining people that only India can provide. Every day there would be at least 10 somethings that would happen to make us double up laughing or simply blow our minds.
The food (the tandoori chicken in Jaipur), the chaos, the conversations, the bartering, the food, the shopping, the Hindi music blaring away in our taxis, the colour, the food, the cows, the camels, taking a deep breath on our final day in Delhi and actually loving the smell, the food and of course the chai (local tea) – the excuses to go back are too many to ignore!
The whole buzz of India creates a 24 hour adrenalin rush. As I took my seat for the plane ride home, it hit me just how hard it would be to come down from it.
India is a unique place which words cannot adequately express, though I could spend pages and pages trying. I had the time of my life over there because of this fantastic tour, with its fantastic group leader. So thank you! This would not have happened if Intrepid was just your average travel group.
I would give anything to jump back on a plane to Delhi. Instead, I must continue to take deep whiffs of my saffron whilst listening to my Bollywood CDs, to try and take me back in mind at least. Thanks to this amazing trip, I will return to India one day. After all… why not?”
