India… AT LAST

It’s this crazy thing…INDIA…I’ve been dying to go there for so long, yet the planets just wouldn’t align to make it happen. I’ve previously even had flights booked to go there, yet the wind set my sail in a different direction, and I ended up going back packing in South America instead. I’m not complaining. South America was AMAZING. But India, let me visit you please!

At last, it’s all working out as it is meant to. The world is a strange place, and I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. My boyfriend and I have been saving hard, and having a boring year of the “real world”, but it’s worth it, because tomorrow, we are finally going to pay for our flights, and in December, we are FINALLY going to spend three magical weeks gallivanting through the cultural pot of India. INDDIAAAAAA!!! (I hope I’m not jinxing it by writing this little over excited piece).

 

But…it’s meant to be this way. Both our jobs granted us leave. Fantastic. It’ll be great to travel this route with a male. I’m not a nervous traveler by any means, but I do think it’s good to take precautions when required, and I think this will be a good instance where, having a strong man by my side will be a wise choice. And finally, I get to touch down in India.

I am beyond excited. I now also finally have something radical to blog about. Sorry for being so quiet lately!

If you have any tips or tricks about India, please let me know. We will be doing Northern India, and then spending New Years in GOA. Oh my goodness pinch me now please!

  1. It’s a huge country and the culture and landscapes change state to state. You can’t see everything in one trip but I would suggest the following places that will be make you trip unforgettable. I’m sure the Taj Mahal is already on Ur list so I’m not adding it here.
    1. Jaisalmer – Rajasthan, camel safari is must.
    2. Varanasi or Banaras – Uttar Pradesh don’t miss the Ganga Aarti.
    3.Leh-Ladakh , Jammu nd Kashmir go to pangong tso and nubra valley.
    4.New Delhi – go to chandini chowk
    5.Rishikesh – do white water rafting on the ganges
    6.In Goa go to Anjuna beach, drink feni (local drink)
    7.Goa -must visit the doodhsagar water falls 50kms from goa.You can also do a jungle hike here.

    Well there are a plethora of beautiful and stunning places. This is just a tiny list. The ones I have done and my personal favorites.
    Just be a little careful with your belongings and bargain hard and you ‘ll be fine. It’s a beautiful country and in general people are warm and helpful. Enjoy your trip and let me know how it was !!! Don’t forget to enjoy Indian food and sweets too.
