    Very bumpy, noisy and dusty, I was relieved to finally arrive at Chitwan. Immediately I felt relaxed, the weather here is sub tropical so was nice and warm and the sight of elephants just free in the streets was incredible to see.

    Although the lodge I booked was cheap, it was very uncomfortable, the ged was pretty much hard like concrete, not sure how long I’ll stay here!
