Carlo Cretaro

Carlo Cretaro

Carlo Cretaro is a keen photographer and loves showcasing his travels through his photos. With his mix of Irish and Italian roots, it was probably inevitable that Carlo would develop a serious case of wanderlust.

As it turned out, his first bite from the travel bug occurred as a result of a trip to Las Vegas back in 2005 for a solo poker trip. Exactly how much was lost in stakes that day has been forever obscured by the mists of time, but Carlo gained much more than he lost. That journey was the catalyst that sparked the jump into a life of freedom and adventure which would not have been possible otherwise.

Day by day, his passion for travel continued to grow, and so too did his desire to tell the tale and inspire others to follow in his footsteps. Not being a natural born writer, Carlo put his faith in his trusty digital SLR camera—after all, what better way is there to tell as story than visually?

This subsequently led to him becoming a co-creator of "Next Stop Who Knows?" – a travel/lifestyle blog. Over time, the blog has earned a serious following from people who share a love of adventure and a desire to change their lives for the better.

Naturally, with the on-going success of the blog, the logical step was for Carlo and Florence to release their first book, "The Next Stop Who Knows Guide", with the aim to show people how to emulate Carlo and Florence's location independent lifestyle.

With this book, "A Picture of India", we have followed the same tradition of providing a practical travel book, but we've gone a step further by inviting you to see the country just as we did, even if only through the huge collection of incredible photos we've assembled in this hefty tome.

Florence Murphy

Alongside Carlo, Florence Murphy is the other half of the "Next Stop Who Knows?" team. This feisty Irish lass developed a passion for travel after moving to Africa for volunteer work in 2009.

After months and months of daydreaming of hitting the open road whilst fulfilling her 9-5 job as a Childcare Practitioner, she finally thought enough was enough and prompted Carlo to start an online business that would allow them to travel and work at the same time. This turned out to be a pivotal move in her life and six months later, in July 2013, she quit her job and has been living out her daydreams ever since.

So far, among many other accomplishments, she has braved the wilds of Africa, ridden a motorcycle across Vietnam, and come eye-to-eye with a criminal gang in Ecuador. She enjoys writing about the ‘faces behind the lens’ and co-authoring the accompanying book is one of her biggest personal accomplishments to date. Now she is ready to share with you the inside details of a lengthy backpacking adventure and learning experience through one of Earth's most incredible places: India!

Picture of India

Anywhere in the world that you go, you are certain to find Indian people. Yet there can only be one India. Everyone seems to have an opinion about India, but not all of these opinions are based on firsthand knowledge or experience.

While tourism to India has been growing considerably over the past 10 years, and contributes billions of dollars to India's economy, the actual number of visitors is still relatively small compared to most other popular destinations.

Thus India remains a place of mystery for many, and for us personally that makes it all the more enticing. For travelers who seek immersion in a foreign culture without the annoyance of bumping into other tourists on every corner, India is truly a blessing in disguise.

That is not to say that India is without problems. Certainly there are some serious problems that exist, but what country can honestly claim to be perfect? India has been touched by every kind of disaster—war, famine, terrorism, disease, organized crime, poverty—and yet the one thing that really stands out to us is that we can travel all over India and always find a smile from those around us.

Any journey through India is indeed a very human journey, and that is what this book hopes to convey. What we found is that it is this humanity which gives India its true spirit, because whatever Indian people do, they do it with amazing intensity.

This is why everywhere you look there are bright and cheerful colors, even in the places you would least expect to see them. The music is filled with the same passion and intensity. And of course Indian food is famous for it's intensity of taste and aroma.

All of this is possible due to that strong human spirit that pervades throughout this fascinating culture, and we now invite you to join us vicariously on this amazing journey of discovery.

This journey travels through an amazing diversity of different regions, all around India, and shows the range of different terrain, geographic features, and the very different way of life that people in each region live.

We have kept most of the focus for this book on showing as much as possible what it is like to live in India, and to show the everyday life of Indian people as they go about their lives. In some ways this was a very surprising journey and we certainly had our expectations blown away within a short time of arrival.

Over the course of many weeks, which gradually turned into months, we found that we eventually settled into the rhythm of life in this usually hectic and often chaotic country. That which had seemed so alien at first, became familiar.

What we learned is that India is not a place to be visited in a hurry. You need to give yourself time and pace your steps, so that you can feel that rhythm pulsing through the very heart of the Indian experience. When you feel it, you will know why India remains one of those places every dedicated traveler must visit at least once in a lifetime. If you decide to go and see for yourself, our book will help you prepare yourself for what lies ahead.
