"29 nationalities" "30 bloggers" "Trip of a Lifetime" "#KeralaBlogExpress" and each country making a banner around the top - it's a lot to take in at a glance. From the window seat, I watched [...]

Kerala Blog Express Diaries: Welcome to India!

The heat hit me like a slushie to the face. It was stifling hot and I was tired, jet lagged and instantly sticky. My linen shirt did Trojan work at combating the heat and as I waited for my bag at arrivals, I was glad I had chosen it for the flight. I was finally [...]
