Well, well, well, what to do, what to do? To blog or not to blog, that is the question. In July 2010 I lost my life partner and good travel buddy Don. Together we had some amazing adventures and I was pretty sure that after he died that would be the end of adventure travel for me. I just couldn't imagine tackling far flung places without him. Buuuut, you know what, my love of travel won out and I am off again.
For my first adventure without Don, I am travelling with my daughter-in-law's dad, Klaus. He lost his wife at the same time as I lost Don. India was a country he had always wanted to visit, as had I, but our spouses were not interested. My daughter-in-law, Tordes, said "That's it, I am putting a plan in place for you and the pair of you will go together." Tordes is an expert on travel within India and doesn't take no for an answer.
So we are off! Now that we are a little more mature in years and since this is our first trip together we are travelling independently, but with a car and driver. In three weeks we will cover Delhi, Rajasthan, Agra and Varanasi. This is going to be a unique experience for us both as we don’t know each other that well - but that is all about to change! I will let you know how it goes .
