Money does not buy happiness, yoga is not about putting your leg behind your head and people are good. Here are the top 5 things I’ve learned after a year of traveling in India.
Breathedreamgo was inspired by my extensive travels in India, and has been the focus since it was launched in 2009. I’ve spent more than six years in total travelling the length and breadth of India, living in Delhi and Rishikesh, staying in Yoga ashrams and homestays, visiting UNESCO sites and festivals, going on wildlife and tiger safaris, and much more.
Shelley Seale, author of Weight of Silence: The Invisible Children of India, reveals how she was transformed by volunteering at an orphanage in India.
Bundi Vilas is the top-rated place to stay in Bundi for a reason: it is a small, perfect haveli hotel, with all the right touches, run by a charming, caring family.
Bundi, Rajasthan is an offbeat gem worth visiting for the ‘goblin-built’ palace full of exquisite paintings, impressive stepwells, and best chai in India.
Ranthambhore National Park is one of India’s most famous tiger reserves. I visited it in 2011 and interviewed the director of Tiger Watch. Here’s my take on the park, the situation facing the big cat in India and what it’s like to go on a tiger safari.
When I was in Sawai Madophur to visit Ranthambhore national park and tiger reserve, my host Satish Jain of The Farm Villa, took me on a tour of the old city of Sawai Madophur — the city the tiger tourists never see — with a stop at his home village to meet his family.
Today I joined the anti-corruption protest in India and interviewed Mahatma Gandhi’s grand-daughter about the movement, sparked by social activist Anna Hazare.
I stayed at The Farm Villa in Sawai Madhopur near Ranthambhore national park and tiger reserve. It was peaceful, authentic, friendly, clean and a unique option.
