Tuk-Tuk to the Streets

Tuk-Tuk to the Streets

Auto rickshaws, tuk-tuks or simply just ‘autos’ are everywhere in India! It’s not known how many there are but in some towns and cities the number is seemingly so disproportionate to the amount of customers that the rickshaw stands are often...

Auroville

Auroville

Emma: Do you want to go to Auroville?Me: Sounds like a Lars von Trier movie! On reflection after visiting Auroville and digging a little deeper it seems my nerdy film director remark was not too far from the truth. The idiosyncrasies of life in the microcosm of...
Thali Time!

Thali Time!

My hands-down (hands-in!) favourite feed in India was the Thali. These ‘set meals’ were always the best value and represented an assortment of typical, local food of the area, varying enormously between states and regions. Thali’s were always the...

A South Western Indian Odyssey

No-one forgets their first day in India- a full on sensory onslaught of sights, smells, and sounds with the volume and colour saturation turned up to maximum. Then add extra glitter and bells. Our journey started in Mumbai (our car was to join us later than planned...

Wieskie

Het parkeerterrein waar we al een aantal dagen kamperen, ligt pal aan een groot en breed strand en tussen de paleizen van de Sjeika (tweede vrouw van de Sjeik). We kijken uit op het privéjacht van de Sjeik en het in de vorm van een palm kunstmatig aangelegde eiland...
Myanmar! 

Myanmar!
