  1. The ‘Fairy Queen’ is another great train trip in India. It’s not quite in the same class as some of the most luxurious trains, of course, but it’s certainly a big step up from the usual.

    The ‘Fairy Queen’ is the oldest working steam locomotive in the world and is a great experience. Highly recommended if you get the chance!

  2. I’m interested in authentic delicious mindblowingly delicious Indian food but I don’t want the discomfort especially the heat.
