Fellow Travellers to South India in February?

My wife Sandie and I are looking forward to the South India Explored trip departing on 10th February, anyone else going too? We're complete newbies to this part of the world, so any tips on your travelling "must haves" for India wouid be great.

Hi Tim and Sandie,

This is also my first trip to India, so no pointers.  Just received joining instructions.  Trip notes and packing list seem pretty good.  I will be spending a week in the Maldives prior to joining trip.  Look forward to meeting you in Cochin.  

Hi Sandie and Tim, and Carole

Looking forward to it very much! I’m in Sri Lanka at the moment travelling alone along the coast and meeting up with friends from Australia for a week soon.

I travelled around South India with my parents when I was 19 because my father is a 6th generation Brit born there, he lived in Ooty. It can get chilly there so I’ll be wearing my “getting to and from Heathrow“ clothes to keep warm if necessary.

I have an extensive ‘just in case’ med kit for tummies, lots of mozzie spray etc so I’m sure between us we’ll have all we need. 

See you soon! I think I’m joining you at Kochi airport 

best Caroline

Hi Tim, Sandie, Carole and Cee Bee

Looking forward to meeting you all.  It's my third trip to India - been to the north and centre so looking forward to the south.  No special tips from me apart from the obvious.  I have found the country and the people just brilliant and can't wait to go back.

See you there - or maybe at Heathrow Tim and Sandie.

Best wishes


Hi Carole, Cee Bee and David,

Glad to hear from fellow travellers, and thanks for the tips Cee Bee. We're flying out from Heathrow on the 10th, so we'll look forward to seeing you then if you're there.

All the best,

Tim and Sandie
