TWT Travel Binder: India

Adam was brought up on an ashram in India (Siddha Yoga, in the Tansa Valley’s Maharashtra), and I’ve long wanted to explore the country with him.

Rivers, tea plantations, romantic temples, cows and monkeys wandering free,
spectacular gardens, gorgeous fabrics and ancient cultures…
I want to see, taste, feel and photograph it all.

Here are some resources to help you plan your own “travels with two” to India.
