Traveling in India

We left Portland on Sunday, January 13. Twenty four hours later (one short flight to Seattle and then two very long back to back flights with only a quick stop in Paris) and we made it to Bangalore. We were met at the airport by family friends and taken to their home. They have made my first days in country very comfortable and easy. What a great way to transition to all the sights, sounds and smells of the city. The weather is fantastic. Cool in the morning and evening, quite warm during the day.

I'm sketching as often as possible.


  1. These sketches are so full of life and feeling. Have an excellent time on your trip.

  2. Great travel journaling Alanna! I especially like the balance of sketch and text and the inclusion of Indian text/translation.
    Enjoy your trip!

  3. some great sketches, and what an awesome adventure. hope you're having a blast.

  4. A terrific start to your sketch journal for this latest adventure....hope you will be able to share more as your journey unfolds!
    Safe and happy travels!
