Who? Victoria Dyer
What? Founder of India Beat
Why? I fell in love with India the minute I arrived and found myself unable to leave. The people and their unrivalled kindness are inspirational and the country itself has such extraordinary variety that every day on the move is a wonderful surprise. From Rajasthan’s intensely colourful markets to the peaceful tranqility of the backwaters in Kerala I always feel completely at home. It became clear though through the people I met while travelling that not everyone finds India an easy place to navigate which is why Bertie and I set up India Beat. We wanted to enable anyone to see and enjoy the India we have come to know and love.
