I am thankful to Julie for organizing on very short notice a memorable 8-day trip that covered parts of Assam and Meghalaya. From attending cooking classes in Guwahati to the elephant safari in Kaziranga to being hosted for lunch by locals and getting a taste of Khasi food and culture, it was unlike anything I have ever done before. The highlights of the trip for me was the visit to the Karizanga orchid and bio-diversity park, the evening sunset cruise on the Brahamputra and the once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of the Bihu festivities at Kokrajhar

The two mothers enjoy a moment taking in the beauty of Mawlynnong village.

Julie’s tips on where to shop and her guidance on Shillong’s legendary traffic jams were very useful for first timers like me. This was my first trip to the North East, but definitely not the last. I’ll surely be back for more
