In India 360, we had no specific theme for the trip. Seasons were the most important determinant for our place of travel. In a vast and diverse country like India, the same place could look vastly different from one season to another and could provide different reasons to visit. This is also the most frequent question asked of us when someone was planning for a vacation.
The ease with which one can travel from place to place during a long journey is easily determined by how much you carry and how compactly you pack.

This is especially true for self-planned and backpacking trips. To be nimble and ready to go, you should pack smart and eliminate ruthlessly. You must have enough to cover your day-to-day travel life for several months, but less enough so that you are left with just not more than 60 litres and 15 kg of luggage per person.
