Come along with Wilderness Travel on another adventure with painters Anne and Ian Gray! The artistic duo departed for India on our Treasures of South India journey and returned with memories that demanded artistic interpretation. Peek into moments of their expedition through colorful fishing villages and serene park lands.
Anne: I was mesmerized by the waterfront in the old town of Cochin. Our hotel, just across the water, had a lovely view of the gentle jumble of buildings, boats, fishing nets, people, and fresh fish and produce markets. It was beautiful from a distance, but we couldn’t wait to go exploring up close!
Ian: After an unforgettable day trip to see our first tigers in Kanha National Park, we meandered around at twilight and explored some of the local villages. It was so peaceful — just the gentle coo of doves in the trees, chickens ‘muttering’ on the side of the road, and blessed relief from the daytime heat. People around us walked slowly home from a long day’s work, their feet bare on the soft dirt road… no traffic, no rush.
