August 2018 Journey

The August trip was to the south of India.

The south is gentler than the north and includes many places in nature

Our international flight will be flying into Chennai and out of Cochin. (For you cost) Actual destinations are unfolding, and our route will include flying into Chennai, Mahabalipuram, Pondicherry- this is all on the east coast. We will then fly to the west coast, our first stop will be Vakarla beach, then the backwaters on a boat and end in Fort Cochin

The size of the group is limited to 8 people and works on a first commitment basis and on a room sharing basis. (If you are not traveling with a friend you will be sharing with a person you have not perhaps met before, you need to be okay with this.)


Departure date is Wed 8th August – returning Wednesday 22nd August. (13nights)

The cost for your journey to South India in August 2018 is R25000 per person sharing. (Single supplement available at an extra cost) (This portion would be non-refundable) and the balance of R12 500 by 1st June 2018.

I would like you to experience India with my assistance but through your eyes. It is a magical place to visit and connects your deeply with the child within. A time to play, a time to laugh, a time to cry and a time to connect deeply with oneself.

I look forward to sharing the journey with you.
