Jaipur – City Views, Roads and Rickshaws

Howdy all. Jaipur has been a focus on this blog now for the last week and a half. Today I have a video I'll spliced together from my last trip there back in 2018, the footage having been sitting lonely on my hard drive for two years now! It hasn't got me talking at all, …

Train Journeys – Jaipur to Jaisalmer

Ahhh the Indian Train Journey! I am genuinely excited that I can properly recount a few journeys in India now. I took a number, all in relative comfort I should say, in my twelve days in India. This was the first major journey, nearly twelve hours across Rajasthan from the main Rajasthani city in Jaipur …
