Incredible India – Part 1

So this is the year (2011) we met The Ultimate Traveller (a.k.a TUT) and travelled to India with him to guide his way as he was more clueless then than now! Here are our best shots (we have millions). This post is mainly from the south and I will do others of the rest of India when I have trawled through the zillions of pics..

Ooti has fantastic scenery and is high in the mountains. I saw my first and only (so far) wild tigers here.

  1. I loved the photos as always. Why is Agonda your favourite place in India? Do you have a favourite or a few favourite countries that you have lived in/visited? I ask, because I am always choosing destinations for my family and you are of a similar age to 2 of my daughters. Thanks, Cheryl

    1. I loved Agonda because its so peaceful and there’s hardly any people there so you get all the fantastic beaches all to yourself. Its also very cheap to eat out, I love Indian food.
      I would recommend going to the Andaman and Nicobar islands which are set in the Indian ocean and are just fabulous.
      Thanks for reading
