I live between India and Yorkshire. Two completely different worlds. My heart lies in India, which I’ve specialised in as a travel destination since 1998, my family live in Yorkshire, I juggle the two.
I am the founder of Indian Experiences, a consultancy to the Indian travel trade. We represent experience providers and specialist, regional and niche travel companies in India with a focus on ethical and sustainable travel. We also offer destination training, product development, website development, content writing, marketing and social media campaigns. Helping agents to discover the real India.
How to describe life in India? Frustrating, illogical, often hilarious, humbling, surreal but never, ever dull. I have ridden priceless Marwari horses, been invited to royal weddings, been threatened by the local mafia, trekked mountains, rafted white water, been wined and dined by Maharajas, slept out under the stars, driven vintage cars, got caught up in Holi and ended up with hair dyed a permanent shade of green. Best of all, I have got to know its people and discovered that in India, anything is possible.
