What you need to know before your trail

A year after the kiss that brought them together in a snowy train-station doorway, Maya and James are embarking on another journey – this time around the world.

The trip starts promisingly, with an opulent and romantic Indian wedding. But as their travels continue, Maya fears that ‘love at first sight’ might not survive trains, planes and tuk tuks, especially when she realises that what she really wants is a baby, and James doesn’t feel the same.

Can Maya and James navigate their different hopes and dreams to stay together? Or is love at first sight just a myth after all…

Travel Guide

The Postcard travels from London to India to Thailand

The couple are off to Delhi and then Udaipur for the wedding:

” Ah now, India is a place beyond all others where one must not take things too seriously.” Herbert quotes Kipling to his daughter. “The midday sun always expected…”

But the reality of going to India for travel and a wedding can give false expectation:

“Life isn’t like a Bollywood movie. The Indian Wedding – my introduction to this wonderful, polarising, beautiful, noisy hectic country – gave me false hope, and the reality is, some days are hard. The noise, the begging, the pollution….just getting from A to B feels like a slog of packed trains and pushing…”

Kerala

“Palm trees trim the think pathways along the wide, flat expanse of  dark water. On one side, a red flag with a white hammer and sickle is tied to two posts like an advertising billboard. Frogs leap from lily pad to lily pad; a cormorant airs its wings on a branch.”

Thailand – Krabi

“The water flips from, crystal clear over pale cream sand the colour of ground almonds to a stripe of mint green that hugs the Andaman Coast. Craggy karsts jut out of the water covered in lush green foliage. A fishing boat gently laps against the shore.”
