India – a different world! That’s a commonplace, but it is true that the more you immerse yourself in Indian culture the more ungraspable the country seems. A perceptive Indian friend once said to me that one can understand Western culture within a few months but that it takes several reincarnations to plumb the soul of India.

As someone who has been steeped in Indian culture since childhood and is an indefatigable explorer of the world’s beauty, I have made this website to bear witness, in a deliberately positive spirit, to India’s incredible heritage. I intend it as a showcase for the country’s cultural and spiritual wealth.

If this website sparks a desire to pack your bags and set off for an Indian adventure, it will have achieved its purpose.

While the site is by no means exhaustive, future globe-trotters can dip into it for some ideas for their trip. On it you will find modest tourist factsheets about the places I have visited, a few pages about Indian culture and articles that I will regularly add to the blog as I make new discoveries.

Have a good trip around the website and pleasant wanderings in the sacred land of Bharat!

  1. Dear Mathini
    What a marvelous discovery of your travel agency as I was looking up Osian. Im watching the BBC 4 part train 2018 Great Indian Railway Journeys and they had a day there.

    In January this year I started to research a 2 month trip to India for Sept 2020 as I had hoped to be in Brisbane babysitting my grandchildren and it was a relatively cheaper flight from there to New Delhi then from Vancouver Canada. Sadly, COVID 19 arrived and Im still waiting to see if I can get into Australia. India will need to be in 2021 Fall I think.

    Any info you can provide re: when India will open for travel will be most appreciated. Ive completed solo round the world x 2 with backpack and as a 69yr old lady my next big trip solo is India. Look forward to your blogs and newsletters.

    Kind regards

    • Dear Diane,
      Thanks for your kind message. It’s nice to get news from BC Canada, I used to travel quite a lot there! Just loved that part of Canada.
      Regarding India and when it will be open to travel, it’s the big unknown for the moment. The COVID currently peaks in India and I don’t think international flights will be resuming before mid-August. So I do hope in October or November, India will be able to welcome tourists again. 🙂
      Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly by email for further piece of information: mathini(at)orange.fr
      Best regards
