Why do people comment so much on the "difficult" car journey to Glenburn? While the drive from Bagdogra airport to the Tea Estate can be a bit chaotic at times it is rather typical for India and by no means "scary". It also offers spectacular scenery. Glenburn itself is very peaceful and very beautiful. Simply wonderful to go for walks, have lunch under the Pomelo tree or sit on the terrace with a book. And meeting other guests round a communal table is fun, even if one doesn't have too much in common with everyone. It is an important part of travelling. As is often the case, the people who work there give Glenburn its soul. For example Sidhu the cook who loves singing and won the Glenburn Talent Competition. Sanjay the estate manager who talks passionately about tea production and sometimes cooks breakfast eggs for the guests. Above all Jenni who looks after the guests and handles every conceivable request or problem with great competence and admirable serenity. To sum up: This visit has been pure joy.
