NYT article on travel to India

Jump to last reply

travel.nytimes.com/2012/03/25/travel/through-indias-desert-cities-three-itineraries.html

I loved the first few paragraphs of this article which reflects the advice old-timers here routinely give to newbies:

"In travel it is seldom acknowledged how routinely people pile on excess. And while this may not hold true on cruises or Club Med, where the biggest daily challenge is finding the proper level of SPF, among independent travelers the tendency is to take on countries, regions, continents, galaxies.

From the placid vantage of a laptop, the world looks manageable. In real time, the degree of travel difficulty unfolds in agonizing increments. Did I really think I could fit all that into a week? I did."
