Variety Is The Spice Of Life: Tong Tong Fair 2014, The Hague

Ah Asia! As diverse as a colour wheel. As exciting as free fall. Adored by travellers from all over the world. Ancient explorers risked their lives to get there, for every reason under the sun, from trading spices to… *gulp* plunder and slavery. If you haven’t been to Asia yet, you have to go.

India, India, India. It can be intimidating, but it can also be so inviting. Here is an example of the friendly India I love and will go back to time and again… my latest video showing a week-long tour through Maharashtra, aboard the Deccan Odyssey luxury train.
