On all my adventures the must-pack list includes a trusty camera, a wide brimmed hat, a versatile linen scarf and boots made for traversing sandy terrain - especially if you are heading off to the Thar desert!
Being well equipped with all the essentials is all part of the romanticism of travel; setting up basecamp in The Serai then heading out on desert expeditions in a Maruti Gypsy jeep, twitching with excitement at the prospect of spotting an antelope camouflaged in the underbrush or fossicking for flora to watercolour. And on returning to base camp, retreating to the campaign desk to journal the day’s adventures before signing off for the day with a G&T around the evening fire.
Whilst living a life of adventure in the sand hills and desert camp there’s no reason why you can’t still look your best, as if you’ve walked straight off the set of The English Patient. In such a dry environment I take the spa with me by packing a few hydrating essentials from endota spa; their organics range is rich with moisturising ingredients like Lilly Pilly, Davidson plum and Rosehip oil. Conveniently the Radiance Boost Serum and Deep Hydration Face Moisturiser are just the right travel size, making them great for popping in with your other travel essentials to keep you hydrated.
