Bryn grew up in upstate New York, but relocated to Boston, where most of her family resides, to attend Simmons College. After working a few years at a hotel and hostel in Charleston, South Carolina, she embarked on a five month backpacking trip through India. While there, she visited the bustling cities of Delhi and Mumbai, the mighty Taj Mahal, foothills of the Himalayas in Dharamasala, the Golden Temple in Amritsar, the back waters and tea plantations of Kerala, the beaches of Goa, ancient carvings of Ellora, rock formations of Hampi, and of course the culturally rich and vibrant cities of Rajasthan. On her return, she worked in her family business for a few years before venturing off to Seoul, South Korea, to work as a teacher. It was after this time in Korea that she decided to return to India for another month of backpacking with visits to Kolkata, Bodh Gaya, Rishikesh, Varanasi, and a return visit to Agra, Amritsar, and Dharamasala. India is always Bryn’s destination of choice but she’s also done her fair share of travel through Europe and South East Asia, Italy and Burma being two favorites. After teaching for a couple of years in Boston, Bryn realized her true passions are in travel and joined Audley to specialize in creating tailor made itineraries for North India. When she’s not doing this, she’s enjoying the parks close to her home in Jamaica Plain, biking around the city, reading, or visiting family on Cape Cod.

One of the most exciting experiences I’ve ever had in India was the Delhi Food Walk in Old Delhi. Old Delhi really delivers the chaos and adventure that one craves when traveling to India. It is a labyrinth of narrow lanes with buzzing shops and a pace that is rivalled only by New York. The varied neighbourhoods showcase individual cultures and cuisines and I always say 50% of the journey is about the cuisine. This tour is such a great way to experience the culture and food with a local and to go where the locals eat. From the Jain neighbourhood, where tasty treats are made following strict vegetarian guidelines as well as without onions or garlic, to the Muslim neighbourhood, where meat curries and the best butter chicken in the world can be found, this tour took me everywhere for as long as my legs could walk and as much as my stomach could eat. A sampling of foods on my tour was aloo tikka, butter chicken, samosas, buffalo biryani, and of course no Indian meal would be complete without sweets like jalebi and a sampling of several different kulfis. The tour guide was really accommodating and designed the tour based on my preferences. He also fit in a few cultural experiences like visiting a 1,000 year old Jain temple, a walk through the spice market, and a view from a roof top where we watched families break their fast during Ramadan.
