Holy Cow India’s back

My Dear Old Dad loved to tell the story of the driver getting out of his bus to dump on the street… Holy Cow India’s back.

When a moo-moo had decided to stop in the busy thoroughfare, presumably for its own business.

And the Holy Lower could not be disturbed and all the traffic had to drive around it.

So India is famously chaotic but it’s that hustle and bustle and colour and life which marks it out as one of the great bucket list trips.

Wu, Wu

Wendy crew: Our old friends Wendy Wu

And our friends at Wendy Wu have marked the occasion of India’s travel regulations having been lifted for the fully vaccinated.

They have just released their new India & Central Asia brochure.

And yes, it’s true… we don’t go to India for the cows, we get plenty of them at home.

Tiger, tiger, burning bright

We’ve got it licked: The tigers

Our pal Wendy offers us Taj, Temples & Tigers, ten days from £2,040pp which is a saving of £400pp.

And they precis their longer spiel by saying:

‘You will have the chance to experience different sides of Indian culture; from the contrasts of Old and New Delhi to the historic city of Agra.

‘You’ll be trying to spot the tigers in Ranthambore and exploring the beautiful palaces and architecture of Jaipur.’

What’s that you say? Tigers? 

Well, seeing a big cat in its natural environs is one of the great Travel experiences.

Just don’t get too close which we guarded against with our Ranger in South Africa when we tracked a cheetah with her new cub.

Wendy’s treats

Love conquers all: At the Taj Mahal

Yes, you’ll see the old faves of Delhi and the Taj Mahal. 

But Wendy goes further than that and you can look forward to…

You can learn astronomy the ancient way too at Jaipur’s fascinating Jantar Mantar.

It’s an 18th-century observatory full of old instruments used to measure the distance and positions of celestial objects.

I can even offer some expertise if you need someone to tag along, having learned where the stars and Uranus (behave) are on my Walk through the Ages in Tenerife.

Rickshaw is a sure thing

Spice it up: Old Delhi spice market

And if you’ve ever wanted to take a rickshaw ride then here’s one through Asia’s largest spice market in Old Delhi.

And you’ll absorb the heady scents and colourful sights of some of the world’s most exotic powders, leaves, roots and seeds.

It’s easier too to get around that moo-moo on a ricksack.

And for the driver to get off to have a No.2.

Yes, Holy Cow India’s back.
