Out of India — 7 Comments

  1. thank you Jim. I enjoy your writings and I appreciate you sharing your travels. I look forward to seeing you and Faye soon!!

  2. Jim and Faye,
    It was wonderful to follow you around India and benefit from your insights and experiences. I too am concluding my 10 weeks in SE Asia. I am currently in Ayutthaya, Thailand and fly home from Bangkok in a couple of days. I have seen some incredible things on this trip, but I have to say that the heat has really been tough on me this time…..when was younger I could handle temps in the high 30 C’s and the humidity at 100%, but now, not so much….I hope we get the opportunity to get together in the not to distant future to compare notes on India and Myanmar…..all the best to both of you….

    • I know what you mean Denis. Several times in recent years I’ve asked myself whether I am getting too old to travel like this. And every year brings me closer to acknowledging that I am. But I don’t know any other way of doing it. I think the key at this point is to give in to accepting some of the small comforts, but still not travel in the bubble that conventional tourists move about in.

      We have a lot of catching up to do. I hope to see you soon.

  3. Blessings for beautiful return to the Mother, Canada, and the West Coast! Loving you both, Cricket

  4. Hey Jim,

    Loved reading your India blog. RE: Senior Travel, at 67, it’s definitely getting harder for me! But I’ll keep on ’til I can’t.

    Currently in Egypt. Like India there are hassles from touts and shopkeepers but it has been worth it.

    Looking forward to reading about your next trip,


    • Hey Joe,
      Egypt has been on my list of possible destinations. I’d like to hear more about your trip.

  5. Wow! I’m exhausted from our trip to India……err well doing it through you!

    Thanks for the memories. Maybe I can coin that!
