Japan - Spirited Away.

This tour takes us to the soul of Japan with a focus on the mystical, spiritual places and traditions of this extraordinary land. We will walk ancient Buddhist pilgrimage trails, wander exquisite centuries-old gardens, visit sacred shrines and mountain-top monasteries, undertake a Zen meditation session and see the genius of some modern-day architects and designers who keep the traditions alive. This tour includes some of Japan’s most famous sites and some of it least known. It is Japan at its tranquil, deeply traditional and breathtakingly beautiful best.

Jaipur Literature Festival Jan 2019.

Join Judy for the famed Jaipur Literature Festival in January 2019. This wonderful event has grown so much in popularity, both in India and with guests from abroad, that it can be a little overwhelming. We therefore offer you a fully organised framework in which you can simply turn up and enjoy the talks, music, discussions, food, arts and crafts.

If you are a new writer (or would like to be !) you may like to join us for a writing retreat with renowned Australian author Sue Woolfe, which will be held in Jaipur right before the Lit Fest.
