My husband, Clyde, and I took a 35-day trip to India in March-April 2012 with arrangements made by Swagatam Tours (New Delhi, India; phone 91 11 25444000, fax 25444010).
Whenever I travel, I carry two Canon cameras with interchangeable lenses. On the old one, an EOS, I keep a wide-angle lens. On my new Rebel XTi, which has image stabilization, I keep a telephoto lens. This solves two problems.
Typically, my husband, Frank, and I are independent travelers. However, after his stroke five years ago it became necessary to modify our habits.
