India & Sri Lanka - Fall 2013

Premium Traveler
Martha travel blog
In our quest to see the world, we've been fortunate to visit many destinations that were easier to get to than India, a 15 hour nonstop flight from Chicago. We also feel less familiar with this country than European countries or those settled by Europeans like Australia. The more videos about India that we watch and books we read, we continue to feel like we have only scratched the surface in a country which had a rich, sophisticated lifestyle when our ancestors had barely made it out of caves. And the photographic opportunities are boundless. Indian food is not our favorite, but surely we'll find somethings that we will enjoy. And if not, coming home a few pounds lighter would not be a bad thing. Because it is such a challenge to get here, we will try to see as much as we can. We will begin with a pre-trip to Sri Lanka and back to back tours to southern and northern India.
