South Africa Trip Report and Many Pics…

Thank you for browsing our website! We hope to have you follow us through our journey.

One of the things I didn’t necessarily want this blog to be was a day by day itinerary of what we did because normally I found the travel blogs I read […]

Delhi, India – Part Two

The Lotus Temple at sunset

Our return trip to Delhi included a day tour of India Gate, The Palace of the President, and a recommended tour of the place of Gandhi’s death.


Pushkar, India – the camel festival and somethings gone missing

One entry in the "World's most beautiful camel" contest

Pushkar was our final destination in India for the famous camel festival. No cars are allowed in the town proper so Mr. Puri dropped us off at the hotel and we walked into the town to […]

Ranthanbore, India – Our quest for tigers

Will we see the owner of this???

We set off in search of tigers in Ranthanbore. After having been in South Africa I figured we needed to see tigers to go with our lions, elephants, etc! We had met an Englishman previously that had said […]

Jodhpur is called the blue city of India. We visited the Mehrangarh Fort and viewed the “blueness” of the city – houses were painted this color to mark the houses of the Brahmans or the upper caste in Indian society. (sidenote – it’s interesting how we’ve […]

Jaiselmer – the golden desert city

We officially reached the desert as we entered Jaisalmer or the “golden city” in the far west of Rajasthan. This, other than my Delhi belly episode, ended up being one of my favorite spots on our tour.


Bikaner, India

Our trip to Bikaner included a trip to the city palace (amazing blue paintings) and a stop by another fort in the lake. We also had the pleasure of staying in a palace with very good butter chicken.
