Jaipur was so much more for me than just a collection of sights. Both times I visited, I experienced some pretty intense stuff. Here is a more personal look at my time in the pink city.
Taking to the tracks, is such a joy. I know that we are Flying Fluskeys, and flying also makes me a happy girl, but there is something special about a train journey. (I don’t mean my morning commute). People say romantic, honestly I’m not sure I could call it that, but it is kinda special. Here are… Continue reading Riding the Rails – The Joys of Train Travel
Have you ever been on a cruise? I am going to be honest, we haven’t. That is, unless you count a two day boat trip around Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, and the odd boaty border crossing. It has just never appealed. I can see the joys of travelling the Nile or the Norwegian fjords… Continue reading Beyond the Port – Five Top Cruise Ports To Explore

In the Old Delhi district of Chandni Chowk stands a vast red wall surrounding one of Delhi’s most popular tourist hot spots, the Red Fort. We decided to visit on our first full day in India.
Getting the Eurostar to Germany, what an exciting prospect! So much easier than going to the airport, we could take liquids and as we all know, I do love a train journey.
