Last year I wrote a Boston Globe piece about Beth Whitman's book "Wanderlust and Lipstick," a guide to women traveling solo. Whitman, who lives in Seattle, is well qualified to coach women on their journeys. For 15 years she has offered workshops, leads tours, and runs the website www.forwomentravelingsolo.com.
Now Beth has published "Wanderlust and Lipstick: for Women Traveling to India," a country she's visited several times since 1989. Beth has seen many changes there over the years and says travel is now easier and more reliable. But still challenging. The challenges are what make it memorable, of course. Beth reports that the number of travelers to India rose from 3.5 million in 2004 to 5 million in 2007 (wow!), and that the government has launched a campaign to train hospitality industry folks about such things as hygiene, manners, integrity and safety. Of course if things get too hygienic, polite, and safe, there go the bragging rights. You can buy the book at www.wanderlustandlipstick.com.

    the comments made by one of my tourists describes india very factually -
    one of the comments of a visitor aptly conveys the indian experience as -

    Wonderfully different, there is nothing quite like India. Travel a lot? No matter how much you've done or how many countries you've visited, when you first arrive in India it will hit you like a gale force wind. A hurricane of sounds, smells and colour where nothing is as it seems. Travel to India reveals a country that is both mesmerizing, exotic, exciting and mystical but at times frustrating, confusing and chaotic. Relax, stay calm, be patient and smile and India will open up herself to you in all her splendid glory.
