OMG y’all, it’s 68 degrees today here in Greensboro, NC. This beautiful day has got me dreaming of Spring and warm weather travel. What a perfect day to sit on my sunny front porch and put together one of our Global Nomad post.
There is just something so lovely about the light in India and the pink city of Jaipur has inspiration around every corner. Gaia Conceptions visited Jaipur in the summer of 2011 to photograph new designs and research plant dyed textiles. It was this same trip that our collaboration with the Rao family to hand print our natural dye block printed fabric began !!!
Where to SLEEP, EAT, and VISIT you might ask ?
My go too travel guidebooks for India are
Fiona Caulfields, Love Travel Guides – Handbooks for the Luxury Vagabond.
Her book for Jaipur is one of my favorites and is full of useful advice !!! All Fiona’s guide books are beautiful to experience in person with there textured paper and drawings. She also does a great job focusing on luxury bohemian travel for a range of budgets.
The third edition of Love Jaipur, Rajasthan was released in November 2012. The 172-page book is a stylish and authentic guide that helps both travellers, and residents, discover wonderful authentic experiences. Love Jaipur, Rajasthan also has mini destination guides to Agra, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Nagaur, Udaipur, Ranthambore plus itinerary advice for touring.
