India is one of those countries that doesn’t leave you indifferent – you will most certainly have a very strong opinion about it. Despite the various peculiarities of the country that travellers might not be used to, India leaves you with this fantastic taste of adventure. When I visited Rajasthan and Kerala, it was like a trip through two completely separate different countries with a different landscape, cuisine, traditions and history. And there is so much more to see – I can go on and on about India’s diversity. But go, just once, and I bet you will be longing to go back again.

The greatest place on earth for me is India. It all started from a young age with my first curry, I just had to go, a one-way ticket later: I arrived. After travelling roof class on top of a bus, being invited to a Hindu wedding and meeting a guru who knew everything about me, I was hooked. I was lucky enough to spend two and a half months in this incredible country, going from one magical place to the next. On my travels I will always remember all the kind locals that looked out for me and offered me their tasty food. They are so helpful and the most fun people in the world. You can’t beat having a cup of chai with the local lads and you learn the poorest people are the most giving.  To me, India has it all and if you like a curry you have cracked it!
