Aotearoa, New Zealand, is a land of myth, created, according to Maori lore, when the Polynesian Demi-God Maui cast a fishhook crafted from an ancestor's jawbone off the canoe in which he had stowed himself away.
With this, he hauled from the ocean's depths a giant fish, which became the North Island, its mountains and rivers carved out by his brothers impatient to devour the catch. The South Island is their canoe, with secluded Rakiura, found at what feels like the end of the earth, formed from its anchor stone.
Today, with its sleeping volcanoes, mighty fjords, seemingly endless coastline and ability to make visitors feel deliciously small, New Zealand remains shrouded in a special kind of magic.
India is changing. It is an impassioned, tumultuous wonderland that embraces visitors, reveres its past, disregards the status quo and offers all who journey there an brilliant, indelible, distinctive experience.
You may wander along sacred waterways, bathe in colour, appreciate the poetry of the everyday, celebrate a southern paradise, traverse the country by train, discover enduring, ancient cultures and cities at the cutting edge, grasp the complexity of tea and tradition, calm the mind, scale peaks, experiment with spices, encounter something wild, question your boundaries, live in the moment and seek out the unexpected. This is a place of craft, civility, history, culture, grace and grandeur. You will be overcome, consumed, saturated, lost in matchless moments, and left craving more.
