Fantastic

A fantastic gallop around India, I really enjoyed it the only problem being it just wasn't long enough.

If you've never been to India! Now is your chance.

How delightful to be taken along on this most fascinating of journeys with your esteemed self, Vincent Ebrahim.
Your energetic adventures were thoroughly enjoyable ( the music still plays in my head ) and although not without hiccups, your friendly manner, compassion and humour won the days. I was sad indeed, to say goodbye to you and your travels.

Evocative and engaging

This is a wonderful account of a personal journey. The sounds of India evoke the country and people. Memories come back along those paths. Brilliant!

Didn’t want this audiobook to end !

I loved this series. It was a gentle introduction to travel literature for me & I will definitely look for similar titles. It would perhaps be better as a visual series, as there were so many descriptions of places, people & food that would have been fascinating to see. I wish it was a little longer, as it was disappointing when it ended. I listened to the last few chapters several times to try to make it last. India is the hero in this series & it made me more determined to travel there. :)

Wonderful

Thank you Vincent for sharing your journey to India. The gentle narration with the honking horns in the background set the scenes wonderfully, as I sit listening with a cup of chai. I love travelogues and I’m pleased to have joined you in your Indian Odyssey.
