THE SILK ROAD TRAVELS INDIA FEBRUARY 18TH-MARCH 5th 2018 *FULLY BOOKED**
THE SILK ROAD TRAVELS INDIA 2019 DATES & ITINERARY TO BE ANNOUNCED
When I first started travelling in India, I can remember feeling overwhelmed just by stepping out on to the street. Everything was loud, brash and confronting. There were car horns blaring, auto-rickshaws dodging around me, cows meandering past and people...people everywhere. It filled up every sense in my body and then tipped them upside down.
But after a few days, I began to find my way through the seemingly deafening cacophony. My senses began to align with what was happening around me and an easy flow set in. I intuitively began to step aside as a bright yellow and green auto-rickshaw came up behind me, I learnt to weave my way with confidence through the busy streets and I began to drown out the unnecessary sounds. The world around me, although bustling with a frenetic energy as only India can, began to slow down. The colours became more defined, the subtle nuances and head wobble of each person I interacted with began to make sense, the smell of incense wafting down the street took over the omnipresent smell of various forms of waste and a comfortable sense of India began to emerge.
After 7 years visiting India, I now want to share a journey with you. I would love to show you my India. I want to share my favourite places and authentic experiences. I want us to drown out the cacophony together, share the things I love and also discover new experiences. I want to show you my favourite places to have hot, flaky parathas, select fresh flowers early in the morning from the phool wallahs and drink the best chai your 20 rupees can buy.
I 100% encourage mothers who wish to travel in India with your child to apply. A large focus of my intention when I created these trips is that mothers could have an opportunity to travel in India with other mothers, alongside someone who has done it before.
I have travelled with both of my children in India on a number of occasions & I know how easy & rewarding it can be with a little forward planning, flexibility & humour!
