Linda, Lydie, Dany and Paul with Avtar – March / April 2008

The four of us left from Brugge, on March the 19th. The flight to India went fine. We were picked up from the airport in Delhi for a lesson in joy riding from the local airport service on the way to our hotel. On the next morning, we were welcomed by our driver Avtar.

We made our travel plans with the help of Rob: The route ‘Delhi – Nawalgarh – Jaipur – Agra – Orchha – Khajuraho – Delhi’ should be a success. We visited Haridwar and Rishikesh on our own. The Ganges is a must-see!

A short description of our driver: Avtar is a very competent driver in the chaos that is India. We all felt safe with him as our driver. His knowledge of the English language is good as well. Furthermore, he is helpful, cooperative and punctual. Avtar is definitely recommended by us.

The car in which we drove was a comfortable Toyota Innova six-seater. The trip through Rajasthan went well; we did not obtain ‘Delhi belly’. We adapted a vegetarian diet, which paid off. We felt at home in this area, which can not be said about Agra. The trip to Khajuraho via Orchha was tiring because of the heat (around 45°C).

India must be seen, felt, smelled, and tasted by yourself, because the experience of visiting this country is difficult to put into words.
