Claire from Stratford, set off around India for 15 days earlier this month travelling 2,300km round Kerala, alongside 30 fellow bloggers from across the world after winning a competition.

The 27-year-old tried her hand at zip lining, hiking and kayaking on the trip.

Claire, who now plans to blog full time, said: “I had an amazing time and just wish it hadn’t gone by so quickly.

“The people of Kerala, are so friendly and welcoming. Every time we arrived at a new hotel we were greeted by drummers, performers, even an elephant at one place.”

The blogger said she was well looked after on her trip.

“Some [places we stayed] were fantastic beach resorts, while others were surrounded by nature and at one place we woke up to find a monkey on our balcony.”
