It was the
first time either of us had been to the country and we hope
that it won't be the last!
We flew from London to Delhi, where we did a little sightseeing
before boarding the famous
"Palace on Wheels" train for a memorable seven
night journey around the state of Rajasthan.
After returning to Delhi (and doing some more sightseeing
there), we were on trains again,
this time north to Shimla, the old summer capital of the
where we relaxed for a few days before we went home.
We visited the
area highlighted in the map
flight from London to Delhi was with Virgin Atlantic.
It was a good flight and we were treated to some excellent
views of the barren mountain landscape of Afghanistan
as we flew over that country, before landing in Delhi at
around midday on 10th November.
