OK, I posted a few India pictures in the Photo Album Section -- or click on this link: http://www.wmowners.com/forum/album.php?user_id=1544

Thanks Cheryl! Those are some beautiful pictures!

Nena, I am from South India and these are from the North. I have never visited the Northern part of India, so it is great to see these pics!

Cheers!

Thanks Cheryl for sharing those pictures. Looking at the pictures of the Taj Mahal (please excuse my spelling) just leaves me speechless.

Where are you from? The farthest south we got was Bangalore and Mysore. (My husband has family living in Hosur.) I have some pictures from the Maharajah's Palace in Mysore, but of course the most interesting part of that is inside where you're not allowed to take pictures. We just had three weeks in India, but we covered a lot of territory.

I am from the state of Kerala in the South Western corner of India. Here is what I wrote in my WMOwners 'Featured Owner' article erlier:

"We make a point to go to India every few years to visit family and friends. As far as I know, the most peaceful place in this world is the little village in South India I grew up in. I yearn to go spend a few months just living the life of a villager where the river is always flowing, the mango trees are blooming and the landscape is always lush! Waking up to the sounds of the monsoon, sitting on the verandah watching school kids walking with their colorful umbrellas and even more beautiful dresses, while sipping a cup of piping hot home made coffee (with palm sugar added!): pure heaven!"

Kerala is fast becoming a world class tourist destination. Best to visit before it becomes that ;)

Some of the major tourist attractions include white sandy beaches, warm water of the Arabian Sea, houseboat trips on the backwaters, Ayurvedic (Indian traditional medicine/life science) Massage, a stay at the hill stations and the tea plantations etc.

Most of the people speak English and they don't have animosity against westerners. Another big reason is, your American dollar goes a long way!

Airfare could be anywhere from $900 to $1500. Remember it is exactly on the other side of the globe! :)

I thought with the price of airfare to Fiji that it was on the other side of the globe? :shock:

I'll get to Fiji one of these years. I've been working on my swimming. :D

Boy, I just feel like breaking out in song. "...can't you feel the love, tonight..." [-(

To be perfectly honest with you, I'm not really trying to improve my swimming that much. :oops:
Just like in the rest of our marriage, I planned on riding on my brides coat tails so to speak. She is an accomplished swimmer and I swim like a 2 legged dog. :D
