Pushkar Travel Guide: 11 Things to Do in Pushkar

Pushkar felt different. From the moment I arrived, it felt unlike anywhere else I had visited in Rajasthan. This is one of the oldest cities in India, and one of the holiest on the planet.  And yet, it felt so laid-back — laid-back for India, anyway. Pushkar is a beautiful small city, situated around a sacred lake, and has long been a major pilgrimage destination for Hindus. In the 1960s, however, Pushkar developed into a popular spot on the infamous Hippie Trail, and attracts just as many spiri...

Luxury hotels in Rajasthan, India

No place in India exemplifies the spirit of monarchy and the splendor of royalty better than the state of Rajasthan. The very name contains royalty: Raja translates to “king” and sthan refers to “place” in Hindi and other Indian languages. When the British left India, there were about two dozen princely states in the region, which merged into the new Union of India, along with other princedoms around the country. The erstwhile royalty was allowed to retain their properties and was granted an...

The Ultimate Guide to India’s Golden Triangle

The Golden Triangle is a popular tourist circuit in Northern India.  In fact, it’s the most popular part of the country for visitors. It encompasses the triangular region between New Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur, with every city located around 125 miles from the others.  These days, the Golden Triangle receives a bit of a mixed write-up and before I touched down in Delhi, I was fully expecting to be disappointed by my week there.  I’m not a fan of tourist-filled destinations, and I’d read plenty of a...

The Cost of Travel in India: A Detailed Budget Breakdown

India is one of the cheapest countries I’ve ever travelled to.  But not only that, it’s one of the best value places I’ve visited.  Value is important when it comes to travel. There’s no joy in spending $5 on a dorm bed if it’s frequented by cockroaches and dengue-carrying mosquitoes and leads to nothing but stress. Similarly, paying $100 a night for a basic guesthouse with few amenities is never going to be a highlight of any adventure.  In India, I couldn’t stop talking about how much value I ...

12 Reasons Why I Absolutely Loved Rajasthan

How to begin writing about my life-changing trip to Rajasthan? I’ve spent the past week wrestling with just that, trying to figure out which blog post to write first. I can’t remember taking a trip that blew my mind so much as my three weeks in Rajasthan did, and I’m both speechless and stumbling over sentences in a frantic desire to share just how wonderful this part of the world is.  I absolutely adored my time in India’s desert-filled state.  I think it’s best, then, to focus exactly on that,...

December 2019: Travel Summary and Statistics

If you’ve been following along with my social media updates, you may have seen that I kicked off New Year’s Day with a sudden hospitalisation in New Zealand. After surviving one of the worst moments of my life, it feels surreal to now switch gears and turn my thoughts back to December.  Because December really was fantastic. It was one of the best travel months I’ve ever had. So let’s focus on that.  Riding the Indian rails was such a fun way to experience the country When I left you last...

November 2019: Travel Summary and Statistics

Namaste from India! My friends, I finally got on the plane. I finally made it to my dream travel destination after years of planning and half a dozen cancelled trips.  Was it worth the wait? You bet it was! I’m absolutely in love with India and can’t believe it took me so long to get here.  But let’s start at the beginning of the month. I kicked off November doing much the same as I did last month: bouldering my heart out! It turns out that I am well and truly obsessed with climbing, and I’m s...

My Favourite Destinations after 10 Years of Travel Blogging

Ten years ago when I started Tales of a Nomad, not in my wildest dreams did I think that my personal travel diary would turn out to be my bread earner one day. I never thought that it would take me to some of the most amazing places and offer surreal experiences. But it did, and thank you a million times for that, Tales of a Nomad. Happy Birthday to you!

Predominantly seen across Rajasthan and Gujarat, Ravanahatha is a stringed instrument which functions similar to a violin. However, the origin of this instrument is not believed to be India, but Sri Lanka, where it was played by the Sinhalese people during the times of the king, Ravana. The instrumrnt also gets its name from the king. While the sound box is usually made of a coconut or gourd shell, the cover is made of goat hide and the neck is a wooden piece. The string which was earlier mad...

Places to visit and things to do in Bikaner

If one makes a list of must visit places in the state of Rajasthan, Bikaner might struggle to make it to that list. Bikaner might lack the exuberance of Jaisalmer, the hues of Jodhpur, the vibrancy of Udaipur, the festivities of Pushkar or the popularity of Jaipur. However, the city which was once the capital of the princely state of Bikaner was founded in late 15th century by Rao Bika, who was until then a member of the Jodhpur royal family. Structures such as the fort, palaces and other...

Solo Female Travel in India — Is it Safe?

Solo female travel to India is much more popular than you might think. In some ways, India is actually a very good destination for solo female travel, despite all the warnings and dire media reports. I’ve spent many years traveling solo in India, and I now live there – in Rishikesh, which is an ideal destination for a solo female traveler interested in Yoga. (It’s called the Yoga capital of the world!) Having said that, I know that as much as I love India, and the adventure of traveling there, ...

Get high before camel riding

The Indian state of Rajasthan is known as the Land of Kings. Located near the border with Pakistan, it’s dotted with ancient palaces and forts. Tour groups often go as far as Jaipur, the Pink City, or venture west to Jodhpur, the Blue City. The last stop is the desert village of Jaisalmer, the Golden City, which is also an entryway to the remote parts of the Thar Desert. It’s the most densely populated desert in the world, covers more than half of the state, and is best explored by camel. And...

Travel UK to Aus without flying

Plane travel sucks . Yes, it’s convenient to get anywhere in the world in the span of hours, but everything else — the security, the food, the uncomfortable seats, the grumpy passengers, the overworked staff, the diseases in the air, the fact that we’re somehow more prone to crying while flying — is a nightmare. The quickness and the convenience also conversely means you’re missing the entire world that’s turning under your plane — if you were to fly from the UK to Australia, for example, you w...
