Notes From India Field TripFebruary 2016 sees the launch of our exciting new India Food Tour. Acland and cooking school chef, Kelly Lord, ducked off to India for 5 days to finalise details with our Indian 'fixers' and test elements of the tour. In short, if you've never been to India before then you absolutely MUST go. It is simply amazing and a delight for all the senses. The idea of this short field trip was to sample the food, check on hotels and investigate cool shopping experiences as well as taking in the major sites.
Food:I guess everyone worries about the dreaded 'Dehli Belly', but we didn't come to India to eat in our hotel, so armed with our local food guides we sampled a dazzling array of street food. The food was fresh, tasty, mainly vegetarian and delicious - and neither of us became ill. Sadly we were too busy eating to take pictures of all the food but I have to say India really does give Thailand a run for its money when it comes to the sheer variety of food on offer. We have both never had so much vegetarian food and I've never been so full.
Photos:India really is unique and is a photographer's delight. From historic buildings and ruins to colourful characters, you will need plenty of batteries and lots of SD cards or storage. This guy was 'charming his pet cobra' in the car park: Our local rickshaw guys catching up on the latest news: Peaceful ruins in the local park: And of course, I left my charger in Bangkok so my trusty camera died but you as the saying goes; 'the best camera is the one you have on you' and the iPhone proved the point and shoots cool video as well:
