    I had a great trip through the beautiful cities. I was accompanied like an empress through this ramshackle country. I always felt very safe and comfortable with my kind driver. We always had an interesting conversation and also a lot of fun. It could not be better!!! All my insecurities about travelling alone as a woman through India quickly evaporated.
