Tourism:
serves it up on a platter.
Entertains you and caters to you.


Travel:
lets the nation change you.
It melts down your belief system.

YOU must adjust to India, not the other way around.

PRAISE FOR ERIN'S TRAVEL WRITING
"… lovely, lyrical, gentle, and informative. It made my world bigger…"
James Fadiman, author of The Other Side of Haight and editor of Essential Sufism

"…an amazingly visceral writer. I can't wait to see your name on the bestsellers list, because that's where it belongs."
Lynn Braz, editor and travel writer featured in Dallas Morning News

“Reese reports on an India few outsiders get to witness - not the Goa parties or tourist sites or political turmoil, no. Instead she dives into the throbbing spiritual centre of India and tries to place her California soul amongst the gurus, mystics and visionaries that remain a constant of Indian religion. Yet Reese is no New Age tourist full of cosmic waffle. Her writing is both beautifully descriptive and very funny. She captures the sweaty heat of India, its madness and charm. Her own spiritual quest mixes with her lusts and frustrations to create a new kind of travel writing. If I ever return to India it will be with Bindi Girl as my guide.”
Garth Cartwright, author of Princes Amongst Men: Journeys with Gypsy Musicians and More Miles than Money: Journeys through American Music
