Hi all - I'm planning to go to India for the first time, around November of this year. I don't know too much about the country (yet!) but I'd like to see as much of the country as possible (taking around a month) and then ending in Goa for a bit or R & R (for say two weeks?). I'd like to tour up to Goa (for ease of travel) and then I expect I'll meet up with other travellers in Goa to hang out with.
I guess my question is, has anyone else done similiar, and what tours would combine well to do this? I have begun developing an interest in buddhism and would also consider going to a retreat for the weekend - if that's an option. Am I trying to do to much? It's such a big place - I suppose I am :-).
