So interesting! I have a friend in Pune, India who has invited me to come visit. This is giving me some really good information about traveling there... (I'm very much of a homebody and the idea of traveling so far really puts me out of my comfort zone!)

Kate Kate Thank you so much for commenting! You can always email me directly ( if you need more support! Pune is such a modern city, but India travel can definitely be intimidating. Becky I Love You!!!

Loving these insights of traveling to India. These are wonderful. Thank you!
Thank you so much for creating this guide. I live in the UK and was recently asking about travel in India as a woman what I want to ask is whether it is possible and are you able to advise on travelling with a pet? Could I take my cat with me? Or is that a ridiculous notion. Namaste­čî╗
Alexandra M Thank you for your question! There are many women who choose to travel solo in India, just like anywhere else in the world, and I could advise you a bit more once I know where you are hoping to travel and what kind of journey you are planning? It would be very difficult to travel with a pet, as there are very strict quarantine laws for international travel...Much Love  :) 
Uschi Gibson┬áThank you so much for replying! Basically I've never been out of Europe, but I'd love to practice what I consider┬á authentic Yoga in India. Would a city be preferable? Instead of a rural area? My intention is to practice 'real' Yoga.I'm about 'intermediate ' if I had to choose a 'stage ' probably a misnomer, but feel I am missing something from my practice when I've been to studios locally in England. I have lived overseas though in Greece and whilst it's not considered a 'developing ' country there is a stark contrast to living standards compared to UK. Do you think I would get much from a month stay practising Yoga? I do think I could part from my pet for longer. ­čÉŹ­čĽŐMany thanks again! ­čî╗
