India


the continuous provocation of the five senses



There’s arguably no other country that defies the art of looking beyond first impressions more than India. Especially when having the chaotic and fascinating New Deli as stepping stone. A country where our initial resistance quickly and inevitably give way to a fascination one can not get enough of.


India is, par excellence, the country of all contrasts. The apparent chaos of its streets and markets and the peacefulness of the temples and palaces; the frenetic daily life only interrupted by the serene contemplation of the sunset; or the supreme irony of the immaculate and colourful saris dressed by the ladies that, every morning, hit the streets broom in hand to attack the impossible mission of having them clean.


Between Delhi’s agitation and the calm of Goa’s Portuguese roots, you will travel along the heart of this land of Gurus, Maharajas and countless legends. Surrender to the scent of the incense and thousand spices. Adventure yourself in a cuisine of exotic flavours to die for…a glass of water. Become part of the love story made eternal by every sunset reflected in the immaculate Taj Mahal. Fall in love with the contrast between the cities of a monochrome architecture and the pallet of a thousand colours of the sky above them.


With your guard already down, soak it all in at the idyllic peacefulness of Agonda and Palolem’s tropical beaches. Indeed, there will be a lot to digest in this adventure of unique experiences that only India has to offer. After all, in which other country could you share the road with people, cars, bikes, tuk-tuks, cows and monkeys while seated on top of an elephant?
