Every Great Journey Starts Somewhere
Seven Days in India
by Monica Weller
About the Book
'Every Great Journey Starts Somewhere - Seven Days in India' is a collection of photographs I took in India during a seven-day visit, accompanied by quotes, captions, and notes I made in my journal. You have probably heard the word 'serendipity'...this wonderful flying-visit to India really did happen as a result of a fortunate series of chance meetings between 2000 and 2001. I had just embarked on a new career as a freelance writer. 'Every Great Journey Starts Somewhere...' is a picture story of how a Buddhist monk, a stone merchant and a businessman all led, in their own ways, to my trip, and how I discovered a sense of adventure I never knew I had. My book will delight all who love India or have visions of travelling there, are fascinated by unheard-of places and tribal outposts, and will inspire anyone to 'go with the flow' of events. When opportunities arise, no matter what, grasp them with both hands...as I did.
My book 'Every Great Journey Starts Somewhere' now has a new code and price. If you wish to purchase it, this one, published 18 June 2012, is the correct version.
