  1. How fun to present musings and a snapshot in David’s style. This is the way I write and keep notes in my journal, but never imagined posting in that manner. Can see some rethinking is clearly in order as I totally enjoyed being transported back to my favorite country in this quick style. Nice job!

      Ha, Alison – that’s exactly what I thought, as I’ve said earlier – it’s quite a refreshing style, isn’t it? I’m so glad everyone is liking it!

    The honking of car horns, crazy traffic and food markets – brings my India travels right back! It’s such a unique place, though pack plenty of stamina (and maybe some earplugs) along with your stomach tablets!

      Love the advice – pack plenty of stamina…haha! I’m beginning to feel like a travel blogging pariah here – am I the ONLY one who hasn’t been to India yet?!? 😀

  3. Car horns in India – an overriding memory of mine. That an oncoming herds of cows coming at you down the main road. I loved India too so much colour, vibrancy, wonderful food and such gentle, kind people. Definitely somewhere I’d love to return to some day.

      I must question David on where the cows were on those days! India seems to be blossoming as a destination more than ever these days, and I’m really hankering for a first visit.

    I love this post, what a fun way of writing! The car horn is essential in India – our driver said a horn and good luck were essential to drive in India. I haven’t been to Bangalore, but to Hyderabad with work. Whilst I preferred our visit elsewhere in December, the business cities are fascinating too. And I never carried a bag anywhere either, I could get used to it, and door opening!

      Cheers, Anna – as I’ve just said to Heather, I may have to adopt David’s writing style for a couple of articles, it makes for entertaining reading 🙂 It’s interesting that you were also there for work, I wonder if the bag-carrying and door-opening is as prevalent for non-work trips…

  5. You’ve captured the atmosphere of India – I was in Bangalore last year and enjoyed the city, there were parts where we could easily walk around, others where the traffic was terrible, fun to explore the food scene and markets too.

      Thanks, Heather – it’s all down to David’s snapshot style…I may have to try that technique myself one day! I hope to discover India’s wonderful contrasts for myself one day.
