We flew into Delhi on the last day of June.  We comprised the two of us, our son and his wife and their three children.  For me a most wonderful opportunity to show them all India, the India that I know and love.

Aline Dobbie gave an interview on her arrival in Delhi in early July.

Aline has returned from 6.5 weeks in India where she and her family travelled through Delhi, Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Kerala. Then on to Karnataka and finally to Hyderabad in Telangana. A most wonderful trip celebrating with family for three weeks and then the rest of the time as just a couple and so many people kind enough to wish us for our Golden Wedding Anniversary with beautiful dinners and delicious cakes. A memorable journey which was also thoroughly enjoyed by her son Stewart, his wife Corinne and their three children Honor, Calon and Oliver. It was so wonderful to have family with us and let them experience what is after all part of their heritage through Aline - India.
