Wanderlust Travel Magazine (UK) - - LIFE– CHANGING TRAVEL -

“There was one voy­age that changed the way that I looked at the world: go­ing from Dubai to Mumbai on a dhow boat. It was in 1988, a time be­fore sat nav and mo­bile phones, and as we made our way down the Gulf, through the Strait of Hor­muz and across the Ara­bian Sea, we were en­tirely de­pen­dent on our crew of 16 Gu­jaratis, only one of whom spoke any English. But we struck up a rap­port, and I was a dif­fer­ent per­son af­ter that jour­ney. My guard was down and my fear of the un­known had be­gun to evap­o­rate.”
