After an incredibly turbulent 12-hour bus ride from Mumbai, we arrived in Jamnagar shaken but not stirred. Continuing the mission to learn as much as possible about Alun’s Polish grandparents, we headed to a school in Balachadi, just outside Jamnagar, where they studied back in the 1940s. ‘Rice 4 Breakfast’ makes a comeback with the best Pav Bhaji we’ve had in India- and in the state of Gujarat no less! Tune in to hear all about our whirlwind 48 hours in Gujarat! We'd love to hear from you!

It's party time! Alun turned 30 this week and we celebrated his birthday in style! Presented with a birthday gift live on air, Alun looks back on a decade of travel and offers insights into how it feels to be travelling at 30. We also reflect on what's been an incredible two months in Mumbai. Mumbai will, for many reasons, always hold a special place in our hearts; a true turning point in the TRIPOLOGY story. Recorded live from a hotel with a no-star rating, we're travelling through Gujurat and heading north to the mountains. Now is a great time to join the adventure!

We set off on a 48-hour mission to uncover Alun's family history. After catching a night bus 9 hours south of Mumbai, we had just one day to discover as much as we could about Alun's Polish Grandparents, who lived in Valivade during the 1940s. We struck gold before breakfast, managing to meet the local Governor, who happily escorted us around the village and nearby city of Kolhapur, ensuring the trip exceeded our wildest dreams! The Polish refugee camp in Valivade was the largest camp for Polish refugees in India. From 1942-1948, around 5,000 Poles lived there, mainly women and children.

Bus Scam in Delhi!

Bus Scam in Delhi!

It’s Adam’s turn this week, as he recounts his city break to India’s capital Delhi. If being scammed on bus rides and meeting promiscuous Indian men is your bag, be sure to tune in! Other highlights include visiting the majestic Taj Mahal in Agra, as well as indulging in the best street food India has to offer.

Alun takes off on a road trip to Murud, south of Mumbai, Maharashtra. His inability to navigate results in a few wrong turns and he ends up lost in Phansad Wildlife Sanctuary without as much as a drop of water to his name. Have we not told you how hot it is here? If the dehydration doesn’t get him, the leopards will! Tune in for lots of animal trivia and heartwarming travel advice, as we share how to make the most of any trip in the face of adversity. Is that a mouse or a deer? Or a Jack Russell?

Financial Fraud Abroad!

Financial Fraud Abroad!

2024-05-1131:031

Adam's experiencing money troubles, with the Canadian tax authorities hot on his tail. Being locked out of your bank account and accused of committing financial fraud is never ideal, especially when you're travelling on a completely different continent. Is this Digital Nomad life really for him? The back half of the episode is heavily weighted towards Tuk-tuks and personal hygiene, as Alun will stop at nothing until every Tripologist is washing their bottom with water. Don't you dare let him catch you with toilet paper! Had trouble with your finances whilst travelling?

Alun’s received the lion’s share of bad luck in the hostel, as his possessions continue to go missing. Are the hostel staff to blame or is there a backpacker thief on the loose? Listen, as we investigate and insinuate. Alun gets his revenge by performing what can only be described as the greatest train stunt Churchgate Station has ever seen. Check out our Instagram page to see the action unfold! ‘Rice 4 Breakfast’ is back with a carb-heavy offering. Fried potato in a bun? It can only be the iconic Mumbai Vada Pav!

If you hadn't already heard, it's unbearably hot in Mumbai. So, true to form, like two British tourists, we decided to wait until the sun was at its most powerful and take a boat trip over to Elephanta Island, to discover the ancient Hindu caves. Strange behaviour from the security guards ensured we didn't hang around for long! Alun's in his element, deep-diving into Hinduism, and in the second half of the episode we share another edition of 'Alun's Miscellaneous Travel Item', where we discuss a contentious topic involving dorm room etiquette- Hold the phone!

Initially, the idea of visiting the largest slum in India didn’t sit well with us, but after speaking with a number of backpackers who had, we were reassured that instead of being intrusive and voyeuristic, it was in fact an opportunity to educate ourselves. Dharavi in Mumbai is a sprawling residential & commercial area covering more than 500 acres! Housing 1 million registered residents and a reported 1 million more who remain unregistered, Dharavi is a densely populated, compact labyrinth filled with wonderful communities and thriving businesses.

Alun's hanging loose and beach bumming in Kerala, India. South Asia is a Surfer's Paradise and Alun's surf lessons, coupled with his determination and unconventionally short haircut start producing impressive results. In the second half of the episode, 'Alun's Miscellaneous Travel Item' sees the return of the fiercely debated topic 'Top Bunk vs Bottom Bunk'.
