Trip Report There and back again: a conflicted (and reimagined) India Trip Report

Jump to last reply

As mentioned on my other thread, I didn't want to write a traditional trip report. I've done that before and, honestly, with this trip, I suspect we didn't do anything all that groundbreaking or out of the ordinary -- certainly nothing different than most folks do on their first trips to India.

Instead, I figured I'd tackle this by a list of lessons learned and tips for future travelers.

India is a land of extremes. Our feelings about it mirrored that. Wonderment. Frustration. Excitement. Head-banging on the wall. Spirituality. Utter despair. It's all part of what makes it India.

So here's the first half of the list I've been collecting. I know some of you have been asking for me to post these sooner than later...so, in the interest of timing, I figured I'd get at least the first half of this up. I'll add the rest soon hereafter.

We'll start with the overview, the cities, the hotels, the planning specifics and then the actual tips. I'll finish up with the highlights.

Apologies in advance for any typos.
