India & the Palace on Wheels

10-23 March 2006

Robert and I had thought about going to India since Victor Emanuel Nature Tours first offered their "Palace on Wheels" birds/train/tiger trip a few years ago, and when the tour was once again offered in 2006, we decided to take the plunge and go.  And it was well worth it!  Whatever we might have expected of such a trip, all of our expectations were exceeded.  These web pages are the (large) photo gallery of our tour.  Click on any of the photo/map images for a larger version.
