New Year's Day 2014 is earmarked for a trip to Mysore Palace, reputedly amongst the grandest of India's royal buildings. Originally the seat of the Wodeyar maharajas, it was gutted by fire in 1897 and subsequently rebuilt in 1912 by the English architect, Henry Irwin. It is described as an Indo-Saracenic marvel - a kaleidoscope of stained glass, mirrors and gaudy paint schemes :-) Designed at the end of the Victorian era and competed in the Edwardian, ...

... got harassed by the tuk tuk drivers to go to their favourite hotel, so they could get their commission. We had to give into one of them eventually because we had not booked ahead and didn't want to be wandering around for hours. Donna had a look at the room in the hotel he took us to, which was ok but we said no because it didn't have a hot shower and they wanted to kick us out exactly 24hrs after we arrived. This meant we would've been homeless at ...
