I will be leaving for India on January 5th, 2016 and will stay until March the 8th. This will be my sixth trip to India after I first went there in 2011.
I will publish my travel blog here, this time in English for all my English speaking friends.
A little bit about myself. My name is Olav Thu (my surname is pronounced like “two” in English). I have been a teacher for the most of my working career, but I am now retired. I live near Stavanger on the southwestern coast of Norway. I am a very keen travel photographer. Before I go on a trip I just plan roughly where I will go, the details like booking hotels and how long I will stay in one place I decide when I am there. This time, I will go to the states of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Gujarat. I have been in all of them before, but there is always some new places and things to discover.

4 Thoughts on “Travel blog from India

  1. Hello Olav. Good to hear of your travel plans. I will be leaving for India on January 2. I am only visiting Kolkata and will be staying at Fairlawn Hotel. This is a trial to see if I can do the trip without picking up any nasty stomach creatures! I will be extra vigilant with food and drink and hopefully come home healthy. If I am successful I will plan a longer trip in 2017 and perhaps visit Gujarat and other areas. I am looking forward to seeing more of your exquisite Indian photos and will be watching your blog closely. It will be good to know that we are both in India at the same time. Have a wonderful journey, Olav. Kathy

  2. Hello Kathy, remember to visit our friends, Sumanta and Kashmiri. You might get some good shots in “their” temple. Kolkata was good for photography. I look forward to seeing your pictures, very interesting how you shoot details. I have learned a lot by watching what you do. Clever you are! A few days ago I saw through your online digital book. Beautiful! When I am back from India I will order one as well. Have a nice and safe journey and take care of yourself. Kind regards Olav
