India is a challenging country and I wanted to take my time to unearth the raw beauty of the country. So I took a 10-day train journey on the historic Palace on Wheels, which was a great way to experience a unique part of India.
I’ve always been fascinated by great railway adventures, enjoying life in the slow lane and seeing the shift in landscape as you watch the country roll by from your window seat. And I traveled with 60 other passengers, so it was a nice environment to meet new people and make friends.
Both on the train and off, India taught me that patience is a virtue. I was able to escape a busy life in London and quickly learned to slow down, take my time and appreciate the moment. India creates many magical moments where you have to be patient.
