Welcome to our May e-newsletter, this time we review TV programmes from this Spring with a spotlight on one of our favourite travel destinations, Incredible India!

India has featured strongly in many TV and films this year.  Did you enjoy watching the 'Real Exotic Marigold Hotel' and can picture yourselve relaxing in friendly Kerala? We have our own 'Boutique Kerala' holiday which takes you to the highlights of the region staying in gorgeous character hotels.  Also set in Kerala was the hugely enjoyable 'Good Karma Hospital'.  

There are lots of lovely beach hotels on the Kerala & Goa coast we can book for you - enjoy drifting along on the tranquil backwaters in your own houseboat.  Why not treat yourself to a spa or yoga holiday and experience some of the regions best relaxing retreats? If you like to be more active what about our 'Spice Trails' walking holiday or cycle your way around Southern India.  Would you like to stay at the Palace Hotel at Jodphur which was star of the show in the new film The Viceroy's House? 

JULES TRAVELLED TO INDIA in March and had a fabulous time in rural Rajasthan including a visit to the tailors shop in Udaipur who kitted out the cast of the 'Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' film ... Jules ordered her own version of the 'Judi Jacket'!!  

She also followed a Leopard called Nigel and explored the 'living fort' of the Golden City! Read about her journey in these BLOG POSTS for Udaipur, Jawai & Jaisalmer.

Beautiful leopards blend into the rocks at Jawai and the Rabari herdsmen of the area still live an incredible traditional life, it was an honour to spend time with them and their cattle.

Also on TV this Spring were some fascinating travel documentaries - Jules was really inspired by Frank Gardener and Benedict Allen in their quest to see Birds of Paradise in Papua New Guinea, an incredible tale of endurance and tribal culture.

Recently the BBC took us 'Beyond the Lobby' into some of the worlds most unusual hotels - included were the Ice Hotel in Sweden, a stunning hotel in the Cloud Forests of Ecuador and one of our favourites Giraffe Manor in Kenya.  

Are you enjoying The Durrells, currently showing it's second series, set in Corfu? If you are inspired to head to the real Greece this summer get in touch, we love Greece and can take you to some hidden gems far from the mass tourist crowds ....
