This journal contains the reports of the latest longer trips to India that we made in the years between 2007 and 2014. We were here earlier in 1982 and 2005.

In January 2007 we fly to Mumbai and proceed from there through Pune, Bijapur, Badami, Hampi and Tirupati towards Visakhapatnam.
Here we have booked a tour through tribal Orissa that ends in Bhubaneswar. From there we go by train to the other side of India. We travel some weeks in Gujarat and Rajasthan before we fly back from Delhi. Mumbai-Dehli in three months

In December 2008 we are off for another three months journey. This time we start in Kerala and go from there to Mysore and Hyderabad. We fly to Bhubaneswar for another Orissa & Chhattisgarh tour which ends in Amarkantak. We continue to Varanasi and Orchha and make a loop through Madhya Pradesh until we reach Mandu and Ujjain. We finish in Rajasthan again. From Kochi to Delhi

By the end of February 2010 we fly to Kolkata. After some days we go to friends near Bhadrak to celebrate Holi/Dol Purnima. During the rest of the trip we visit West Bengal, Assam en North Sikkim. Seven weeks North East

In January 2011 we fly to Chennai to start another 20 weeks journey. The first three weeks we explore Tamil Nadu until we reach Kanyakumar. After a short stay in Kerala's backwaters we continue to Wayanad and Coorg. A great itinerary through the inland of Karnataka brings us to Aurangabad. We take a plane to Jodhpur for a wedding and then to South Sikkim. The rainy weather over there makes us escape to Kolkata.
Mainly in the South

Early 2012 we make our last trip for the time being. Again we start in Chennai from where we travel slowly towards Coonoor. Then we go back to the coastal area of Andhra Pradesh followed by another visit to our friends in Norhern Odisha. We continue by an itinerary that brings us from tribal Odisha through the rarely visited inland towards Bhopal and Gwalior. The last weeks we spend in Punjab
South-East to North-West 2012

By the end of 2014 we are ready for our next journey.
Back in 2005 we traveled 6 weeks with a car+ driver organized by Namste. Kamal, the driver, originates from Himachal Pradesh. He promised to show us around if we want to visit his region.
Now we want to go there and contact Namaste. Kamal still works for them and we make an arrangement for a tour through Himachal Pradesh. Thereafter we continue on our own through Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and a part of Jharkhand. From Ranchi we engage another driver for a trip that ends in Odisha.
Eleven weeks in the North

In 2018 our travel ambitions shrink and we decide to make a short trip through Rajasthan. Due to health problems we did not enjoy it that much.
