  1. Great blog! Great work on your photography. You have a good eye, especially when it comes to animals. I’m so happy you stopped by my blog, I will be following yours!

  2. Hi Pankaj, Thanks for stopping by and liking my posts. Your photographs are excellent. Please do keep visiting. I have very few fellow Indian travelers coming to my site.

  3. hello there, thank you for stopping by @trashbus and liking my post “A Cat’s Perspective” on Dubrovnik! Do come back whenever you feel like it! Bye, R.

  4. Hi Pankaj, you’ve got some great shots here. Really enjoy your photography and sounds like you have an interesting background! Thanks for stopping by my blog, it’s much appreciated.

    1. Thanks….Well I became a vet because I love animals…I live and work in Germany and traveling is my passion…I believe that traveling is not just entertaining but is also a great way to learn about new things…

  5. Richard has a Ph.D. in biomedical sciences, and also enjoys travel and photography. I think we all share a passion for joy in this world!

    1. Thanks a lot…You have a great blog as well….I am currently going through your posts and your photographs are spectacular….

      Wow…India will be a very different experience for you…Where exactly are you going, like North, South, East or West….India is so big!!! You can go to the mountains in the north..There are amazing beaches in the south and west…The forts and castles in the state of Rajasthan are amazing as well…

      One top tip: If you are staying in the star hotels you will not have any problem…If you looking for budget hotels/transport etc. ALWAYS FIX THE PRICE FIRST…. 🙂

      If you need any more information just let me know…I live in Germany but currently touring India as well…I am in the city of Bangalore in Southern India…

      1. Haven’t decided yet but would like to discover something warm and beautiful and interesting during the cold European winter. Southern India sounds very interesting and I think it would be ok in november-december? I have been to Rajasthan and Northern-India in 2010. I’m working as a freelancer and would thus like to discover the places slowly.. to have also time for some work. If you have any good tips.. would be very happy to know.

      2. OK….
        Places like Mysore, Bangalore, Chennai in the south are good. On the way to the South, you can visit the west coast (places like Goa, Mumbai). The southern most tip of India is Kanyakumari where the three seas (Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal and The India Ocean Ocean) meet. This is a very nice place as well….The town of Pondicherry is also nice….You might have seen this website http://incredibleindia.org/…You will get all the information here…Once you decide on the place, I can give you further tips that are not on the guide books or the website 🙂

  6. Just happened to run into your blog. You have got a beautiful space running here. Loved some of your write-ups. Its very subtle . great work 🙂

    1. Thanks for the appreciation….It does mean a lot to me..Yours is an amazing blog as well….I have just gone through your posts on Saurkundi Pass and Kullu and they are very nice…
      Thanks again

  7. Your kindness in acknowledging my post is sent back to you in a reciprocal response of equal measure. Your blog is a wondrous journey through an amazing array of beauty and wonder. To know that such spirits as you share this space with me, and that you can appreciate our mutual interest in the beauty of the world, gives me much encouragement.

    I thank you for your attention to my efforts to illuminate this beauty, and applaud your rendering of your own Global Safari.

    Regards……John H.

    1. Thank you so much for such wonderful words…I am honoured, flattered and humbled!!!!
      I am going through your blog now and I must say, I love your perspective on all things beautiful….

  8. Wonderful photographs – love the huge banyan tree.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog today and liking my post. I was afraid folks were not interested in my “rainforests essays” – not much traffic -and I thought this might be my last one in that vein. But today I’m pleasantly surprised to “meet” a lot of people coming out of the wood work (out of cyberspace).

  9. What a pleasure to discover your wonderful photographs of cats and dogs and trees and no doubt a host of other lovely things. Thanks for liking my post about dogs. My photography pales (or shivers) next to yours, but I have quite a few posts about animals, including the one I just finished called “kinship”. I know you know what I mean!

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely words and all the encouragement. I am just an amateur myself when it comes to photography…And most importantly, when it comes to animals, everything gets pale in front of their beauty..
      Yours is a lovely blog as well and it will take me some time to go through all your posts. But whatever I have seen until now is beautiful…..And just to add, Shannon, Boo and Bouhaki are gorgeous….

  10. Thank you kindly for dropping by my blog. 🙂 I have another run along with a fellow blogger, we showcase the arts in all forms including photography. We’d be happy to showcase your work should you want to share. It’s free. 🙂

      1. Our pleasure, we would aske that you submit your work to us. If you check out our sumbission and theme pages they explain everything. Thak you, we look forward to it!

      2. Just wondering if I should submit work that has already appeared as a post in my blog or should I submit something new that will appear in my blog in future….

      3. OK perfect..I would probably submit a collection of my photographs from my blog…I might also include some shots that will appear in a future post in my blog.

        I guess the theme that suits me most is “Gallery Sunday”. My gallery will include snapshots from my travel pursuits and photography endeavors. I will caption each one of them and write a short introduction on the gallery (50 words).

        I hope this goes well with the theme of wepoetsshowit.com/ in general…..
