Livinia commences her discovery of India
in the bright, bustling streets of Bangalore, the capital city of India’s southern state regarded as the country’s “Green City” thanks to its large collection of green space and dedicated botanical gardens.
From Bangalore, Livina travels to the west coast and the relative clam of Cooog, India’s home of coffee and producer of more than 40% of India’s total coffee industry. Here she discovers the process of production from berry to bean and then she enjoys the final brew. This episode journeys inland to the village of Kabini, and then onto the palace town of Mysore.
Episode 2 shows Livina discovering the port city of Kochi and the local fishing industry, before cruising the network of rivers, lakes and canals in the coastal state of Kerala. From the couth, Livnia heads north to Madurai and Chettinad, famous for its incredible mansions built in the late 1700’s.
In the last Episode, Livinia explores the towns of Trichy and Tanjore, known as the temple city thanks to many temples and shrines which have been built over the centuries, before heading north to the last stop on this incredible odyssey – the city of Chennai.
