About

A vagabond at heart, love of travel has taken me places and made me a  wiser soul with an open mind to learn and respect the people and  cultures that I have encountered along the way…..here are some of my experiences….

    We visited this Jain Temple the first weekend we were in Ahmaedabad and there was a lovely wedding taking place. As we left they gave everyone a lovely envelope and a 10 rupee note. We also got a red string tied on our wrist which we still have. NO idea what it means? Do you know? I love incredible India! Namaste. . . .Anne

      Thanks Anne for your wonderful insight. Wish we had seen a marriage here. They are really colourful. The red thread is probably the blessed thread that is tied to the wrist for well being and good luck, at least that is what we Hindus use it for. Jains must be using it for the same reason too. There is a lot of intermixing of cultures here and sometimes rituals such as this is practiced irrespective of religious backgrounds. Lovely to know that you enjoyed your trip to India.
