A traveller’s first solo trip is usually unforgettable, whether it was wildly liberating or strictly avoidable. In this installment of our “Trips that Changed the Way I Travel”, our traveller visits Khajuraho, home to India’s most famous erotic temples, and both part a little changed. #BestOfTheWeek

A mecca for cricket unline any other, Lord’s is known for its extraordinary matches, and also spectators in felt hats and flannel jackets carrying picnic hampers and ice boxes.
