Book Description

This travelogue and photo essay documents the author's first trip to India in February 2011. Most of the time was spent in Rajasthan, the huge desert state in India's northwest, with a few days in the state of Uttar Pradesh, site of the Taj Mahal.

"I expected it to be magical, and I wasn't disappointed. I expected the people to be wonderful, and they were. I didn't really expect to have any adventures, since I was going on a guided tour, aside from the whole trip being an incredible adventure by itself. But I did."

This journal has lots of detail about eating, drinking, getting sick and bathroom facilities. It's what everyone wants to know but is afraid to ask, particularly women. If you find that too much information, you might like another travelogue better. But if you want to know what it's like for a woman to travel alone in India who's not a college aged backpacker, this book might be helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice if you are travelling alone July 9, 2012

Although I have not read the whole book but a snippet, I really liked what I read. I read an excerpt on website and I really loved it. India is an exciting place to visit but can be difficult if you are travelling lone. This book is about the travel and the things Marie sees while on her way to places. Its one of those books that one must read if a lady or anyone in fact is travelling lone in India. A good detailed view about the people of India, food and its culture.

More About the Author

Like countless others I'm passionate about travel, capturing images of my travels, and sharing stories of what I've seen and experienced. Other interests are foreign languages and intercultural studies. I like to know what the culture in the country that I visit is about. I still make cultural mistakes when I travel, but respect and a smile go a long way to repairing any faux pas I may have made.

I received a Master's Degree in International Policy Studies from the Monterey Institute for International Studies in 1996 and a B.A. in Economics from California State University (Sacramento).

From 1996-98 I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Togo, West Africa. I still keep in touch with friends that I made during that time. After several trips to India, beginning in 2011, I fell in love with the country, the culture and the friends I made there. I expect to make full use of my ten year India tourist visa.

When not traveling, I live near Washington, DC.
