I actually can't express how much I would love to be on this trip. Seriously.
Unfortunately, there's not a hope of having that much money to spare, so I will just have to splurge out on Indian food at home instead. Hopefully someone from vw can go, then we can live vicariously through their photos/stories : )
Sounds awesome. Can't go, but I'll dream...
Laura, Are you going? I really want to go and I an seriously considering it. I'm just wondering how to come up with the cash. Round trip airfair to Delhi is about $1,300. The tour cost is very reasonable though.
That is very reasonably priced. I'm shocked by that atually. I'd try to go if I wasn't a single mom. (Well that and the yoga thing.) I wish there were more vegan-friendly family vacations available.
Oh. My. Goodness.
:( I'm so sad that I don't have that much money. I would LOVE to go there. I'm about $700 short. :(
Ah, just took a gander at the website and sorry folks, it's sold out.
I can't even find the info on the VegNews website anymore.
oh man, I hope we can hear about how it goes! I actually looked up airfare from Berlin and it was only like 500 euros so I was quite tempted but it still cost too much altogether. sounds incredible though.
Looks like they are sold out.
VegVoyages is the trip I took to India last November. India is an awesome country of contrasts, polluted and dirty, beautful, primitive and technologically advanced. I would love to go again. Those who know know I'm now obsessed with Bollywood.
It's great having someone who speaks Hindi that can order you vegan food because veganism is not well understood by the common people there. "Strict vegetarian" there means "ovo-lacto vegetarian" to us. For ovo-lacto vegetarians it's a haven. That part of the country has many vegetarian only establishments.
When I went it was only me and one other woman, and there were some things I didn't like, such as going into people's private homes for meals. The "have dinner with a local family" part I didn't like. That was very uncomfortable, perhaps because it was just me and one other person. I had a couple of other issues and cut the trip short, but no regrets. India is amazing.
