A few years ago I spent ten months solo backpacking from Hong Kong to Rajasthan in India. It was my first experience of this style of travel, where you make it up as you go along from influences along the journey and see where you end up! I met the most amazing people I’d never encountered the like of before, had some real adventures and many of those “oh what an incredible world we live in” moments. I try to recreate the spirit of that journey when I’m planning tours here at Explore: even in a two or three week holiday you can experience so much more if you’re prepared to be adventurous.
The country I love above all others is India. It has an incredible energy and gives you a full-on sensory bombardment, with its vibrant colours, intoxicating smells, hypnotic music and deliciously spiced food. For me it also tickles those spiritual receptors. There’s so much variety, it’s a place you can go back to again and again.
