Of all the countries on Earth I have visited I can honestly say that there is none quite like India. The adventure, the poverty, the grandeur, the slums – the highs and lows of life are never more evident than in this amazing country.

This book is full of experiences the author (Andrew Boland) had during his three unforgettable trips to India. There are many tales to tell, of kindness, of scams. There are also plenty of travel tips as well, thoughts on where the author stayed and how he got about, including a bit of a love affair with Indian trains.

From the hill station of Darjeeling, to the warm beaches of Goa. This book is a mixture of personal experience and tips for those wanting to head to India. It covers – Delhi, Jaipur, Udaipur, Pushkar, Amritsar, Chandigarh, Mumbai, Goa, Varanasi and Kolkata. There are dozens of photos taking by the author. All from and about the most amazing country on Earth, perhaps in the Universe!

‘Short Journeys’ is a series of stories about my travels to different countries. Whilst they are not intended as a guide book, I have endeavoured to include information about where I stayed, what I ate, what I saw and how to go about it if you were to visit the countries in question. My previous writings – the ‘Dhaka to Dakar’ books, were simply travel experiences. This time I wanted to go a little further for the reader.

I wanted to include any stories and experiences I thought were interesting, important or amusing whilst I was travelling. I want to encourage you the reader to read, think about, and then perhaps go there yourself. You will find information on the places I stayed and visited, and how I got there and around.
