Des and Barb Gettinby are an amusing and spirited couple. Having retired from corporate life they now love to travel at a grassroots level. No more 5 star accommodation. Nothing booked- the itinerary unfolds as their curiosity prompts them - mixing with and meeting the locals, sharing time with the cosmopolitan kids of the world and always staying in en-suite rooms either in city centres or on the abandoned beaches of Goa.At under $85 per day for two, they roam from Rajasthans tigers and forts to Keralas backwaters and rice barges. From the majesty of the Taj Mahal to the remarkable rat temple. They travel by rickshaw, by train, by plane and with car and driver. This tale tells how easy it is to travel on a shoestring- how to make adventure travel a breeze - all the tricks of easy travel.As befits India, this is a jewel of a story.
