Just started looking at Map of India and couldn’t help myself…. basic Idea of how my trip will evolve over Feb- March, includes beaches, mediatation, conferences, weddings, and possibly 2 other countries!
Orange = definite, by road or rail transport
Blue dots = Flights
Yellow arrow = maybe (time/ $$ pending)
Only 2 months late but this was the original plan!!!
The outcome was similar but came out rather different. Here is a rough idea of what I did.
Jan 30th – Left Australia
Jan 30th – Full day in Malaysia
Jan 31st – Arrive in Mumbai
Feb 13th – Fly to Kerala, Fort Kochi
Feb 15th – Bus to Varkala Beach
Feb 17th – Fly to Chennai
Feb 18th – Fly to Madurai
Feb 20th – Fly to Delhi
Feb 26th – Fly to Srinigar, Drive to Gulmarg in the mountains.
March 4th – Drive to Srinigar, Stay on Dal Lake
March 5th – Fly to Jammu, Drive to Dharamsala
March 7th – Overnight bus to Delhi
March 8th – Overnight train to Jodhpur
March 23rd – Overnight train to Delhi
March 26th – Fly to Varanasi
March 27th – Overnight Train to Delhi
March 30th – Depart my beloved India
March 30th – Stopover Malaysia – 30 mins!!
March 31st – Arrive in Melbourne 9am
What a journey!! And that’s just the transport!!!
Questions re getting around India are welcome. I feel I am now well versed.
