At school in a history lesson, I learned of the exploits of Vasco da Gama, the first European to discover India; at the time, I dreamed of visiting this fascinating country.

This dream became a reality when I read the innovative itinerary to ‘Authentic India’ with Fred Olsen Cruise Lines. I was further excited that it included a stay in Sri Lanka, where I spent time many years ago.
