FOOD that made the cut
We are happily pet friendly and look forward to having you with us with your pet
I am George from England and, having worked at Jaipur Inn and assisted Pushpendra in the creation of his blog, have the honour of being the first foreign guest to contribute to this blog. I felt that I ought to because I have found this place, and indeed India as a whole, so exciting, dynamic, and have felt that it has had a transformative impact upon my life. I have found the inn’s embracing of the arts and the environment as part of the fabric of the homestay truly inspiring. I first took the leap and came travelling here in part as a result of the literature that I read, and would thus like to contribute the translation of a personal favourite from Petronius to encourage other young people to do the same.
This interview with Anurag Basnet is immensely personal to all at the Jaipur Inn as it pays homage to the brilliance of our favourite literary figure, Ruskin Bond.
This clipping from last summer emphasises the surge in green tourism worldwide, which we feel needs to become a more focal element of the Indian tourist industry. At Jaipur Inn we have embraced many forms of environmentalism from upcycled waste used to create beautiful walls for our garden to recycled water. We hope that this inspires travellers and homestays alike to become more green in their outlook.
Here at the Jaipur Inn we are enormously enthusiastic for all things literary. Bookshelves litter the hotel and we even run a scheme whereby books can be exchanged with our extensive library here. This clipping pays tribute to RK Narayan and the museum recently opened in Mysore in his honour.
As a community hotel we firmly believe that it is important to share inspiration and curiosity in order to create more memorable experiences for those visiting us. We have consequently set up this travel blog, filled with things that’s we find curious and of course with space for visitors from all over the world to contributed things that they find curious! This is our first clipping, about the beauty of living in a world free from technological interventions.
Thanks for joining me!
