A Love Affair
Well, now we are living the Gypsy Life
My husbands job now requires him to spend months overseas every year- London and most of UK , USA, etc
I have to adjust to this huge change in our lives, and its not that easy
I do miss my family while we are away for 6-8 weeks at a time, but the upside is that I get to travel alone (mostly to Paris) because its so easy and safe by Eurostar
We have a flat in Teddington, so I can just leave clothes and toiletries, and do not have to take much luggage along
We have only just returned mid August, and will be off again for 2 months end January 2016.
Another upcoming trip to London and Paris in November 2014
Brrrrrrrrr its going to be cold. And I will spend a full week alone in Paris........time for quiet reflection and husband-free shopping at the sales!
We now have an apartment in London.......and will be spending many months there on account of my husbands business. Best idea, because having a fixed abode makes means that I can leave clothes and toiletries in LOndon- easier for travel.
We are planning a HOLIDAY (no work!!) in Spain for early 2015. Will base in Cordoba and hire a car to explore.
Our very recent trip to France and UK was a huge success. (Sept 2013)
Had a wonderful time, photos and hopefully some pages to follow
Looking forward to our upcoming trip to Europe- August/September 2013
France and UK
NEXT STOP ITALY- JULY 2012- had a wonderful time. We loved Italy
Greece and Islands 2011- fun trip

My love affair with India began after reading Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book. I was 10 years old. I devoured every bit of information, and from then on, read everything I could about India. I still do. Problem was that my friends wanted to talk about the usual childhood interests, I wanted to talk about travelling, and history and exotic places...........so life went on. I have always been, and still am , a curious & restless person. New sounds, sights and smells stimulate me greatly. I have been to many countries, but India has a special place in my heart, and I will always return there
I BELIEVE THAT IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR ANYONE VISITING INDIA FOR THE FIRST TIME TO READ AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE ABOUT THE COUNTRY AND CULTURE BEFORE VISITING. BEING PREPARED WILL MAKE IT AN ENJOYABLE AND UNFORGETTABLE TIME.
IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHAT TO TAKE ALONG IN YOUR INDIAN TRIP read the tip on this page India packing tips

Mahatma Gandhi has always been my inspiration - the shining light I have always tried to follow. His words, written and spoken so long ago, are still so relevant in todays troubled world.
