“I can honestly say the 2019 India trip has been an incredibly wonderful experience. I feel honoured to have been a part of it. Words do no justice to the depth of experiences and relationships developed on this trip. Alex, Tim, Uschi & Rakesh you are indeed very special people and I am in so much gratitude & appreciation for this experience you created together.” ~ Jen (2019 Journey to India participant)
