Mumbai

Four days taking in the sights of India’s most populous city.

Goa

We spent the recent Diwali long-weekend soaking up the sea air and sunshine in Goa.

Fort Cochin

A six day trip to the south-western state of Kerala for my 40th birthday last month.

We stayed in Fort Cochin/Kochi and spent our days exploring the historical Portuguese and Dutch buildings, Chinese fishing nets, churches, and spice markets on foot and auto.

Trip to Delhi & Agra

Spent a few days in June exploring Delhi before taking the train down to Agra for a few more days.

Had lots of fun focusing more on shooting video than photos on this trip. Am really starting to enjoy the process of creating these short videos so I think I’ll stick with it for a little while.
