Welcome to my blog Pack for India. I’m Janet, a 50+ mum from UK. I’ve travelled both solo and with friends to India a number times. India was top of my bucket list and at a time when I had very little money I won a holiday to a luxury Ayurveda & Yoga retreat in Gokarna. I started preparing & packing immediately – at least six months before I travelled – but despite researching extensively I still didn’t get it right. As with most people there were items I wish I had taken and a huge amount left unpacked. Further travel honed my packing skills. I have travelled between Mumbai , Goa, Gokarna, Hampi and Kolkata – stayed in luxury hotels and small shacks on the beach. I hope you enjoy reading these blogs and that they help you prepare for & enjoy your trip. Some links generate a small commission – thank you this helps to pay for hosting this website .
