We’ll start at Mumbai’s most famous beach, Chowpatty, where we’ll try an array of Mumbai’s best vegetarian street food as we watch the sunset. We’ll have classics such as Dahi puri, Pani puri and pav bhaji. Then we’ll take a short taxi ride to the lively Mohommad Ali Road area.

It is said that people from Brittany are travellers, I guess I am no exception! If I went around Europe a bit during my youth, I caught the travel virus, during my first expatriation to Mauritius. When I set foot on the sand, it hit me: I was made for the sun. A second experience followed, Reunion Island for two years, exploring the island from one end to the other on the hiking trails. In 2017, I surprised myself when I stopped with my suitcases in Sri Lanka and then in India in 2019. In this country the size of a continent, impossible to get bored! From the cultural heritage of Rajasthan to the mountain side of the Himalayas in Ladakh or Sikkim, not forgetting the tropical weather of the South States, the exploration never ends…
