"A whole wonderful world in a single country" India by SirRichard

India Travel Guide: 29,741 reviews and 83,934 photos

India is such a huge country that a single travel would not reflect its amazing variety. I've been twice there, once several years ago in the north, with an organised tour; and second, in august 2001, travelling on my own all along the south-west coast.

I'll put here some facts I found of interest, but I have the intention of keep going again to India, and try to understand this fascinationg continent, so I'll keep updating this page.


India's southwest coast is a marvellous paradise. I travelled all the way down from Mumbai to Trivandrum along the coast on my own, visiting on the way:
- Aurangabad (Ajanta & Ellora caves)
- Puna
- Goa
- Mysore and Bangalore
- Cochin
- Kerala
- Varkala beach
- Trivandrum
I did it by bus/train, sleeping in local budget places and had a wonderful time!!!
