Visit to India
Post: #1
This is the query to beat all queries ….  and I do feel embarrassed at asking Undecided   I have never travelled much at all, and never a solo trip.  I need a gluten free, vegetarian diet.  I dislike spicy food and not good in the heat.  Here's the bit ….. and I keep looking at the trips to India ..!!  I know that sound complete nonsense.  Perhaps I should consider something else …..?   Thank you in advance, if you have any advice.  Best wishes to all.

Hi,

I have been to India 5 times now and was there this February (not with JY). If you don't like the heat, then go to North India in February and you can experience snow, freezing cold temperatures and torrential rain! Not all of India is hot! In terms of food - I always go vegetarian when I go to India so you will have no problem there. Don't know about gluten-free.

It's a wonderful country and not called "Incredible" India for nothing!

Enjoy!

Cheers,
Hils

Hi. I've been on both the Spirit of India and Kerala trips and loved these holidays. I went in October both times and the weather was pleasant and not too hot. We stayed in excellent hotels and I am sure that they could cater for your dietary needs.
Suggest you call JY and speak to a travel advisor who could give you appropriate advice.
Hope this helps

Hi
If India is really where you want to go, just go for it! You won't regret it.
My first ever JY trip back in 2005 was to India and I was somewhat nervous but it was to become one of the best things I have ever done. I have been back a few times since and currently have two more of the JY India trips booked.
Regarding the weather after being in India in October and February I concur with Hils and Lesley about the weather.
Food wise I always eat vegetarian in India, but I have no idea about gluten free. The hotels in India are of a very high standard and there is always plenty of choice with food.
The JY Tour Managers are invariably very good and you will be well looked after,this goes for any JY trip. So should there be any issues about food when you arrive at hotels, the Tour Manager will do his/her best to sort it out for you.
Kind Regards
Di

I have travelled to other countries and there was someone who required gluten free food (on 4 occasions this person was on the same trips as me!) and was well catered for. I am sure you will have plenty of choices in India
