Gateway To Rajasthan

Rajasthan is a northern Indian state bordering Pakistan. Its palaces and forts are reminders of the many kingdoms that historically fought for the region. The first fort we visited was the Amber fort, this is the most important in the region and the most beautiful so far. Amer, originally, was the capital of the state before…

Beyond The White Wonder

Most tourists come to Agra for the Taj Mahal, they stay 1 night or some come in the morning and leave in the afternoon. We stayed 2 nights not listening to everybody’s advice, and now we laugh at those people, the sights besides the Taj Mahal that Agra has to offer are absolutely amazing and…

The Pink City

We left for the train station a little early and waited for our train that will take us to Jaipur, the Pink City, as it is called because of the color of most of its buildings there. The train was only 3 hours late so waiting in the station was a nightmare. There were several…

The Taj

The Taj mahal is so majestic that it deserves its own post, so here we go! We arrived in Agra on a Thursday morning, our original plan was to visit a few sights that day and visit the Taj during sunrise on Friday. We were told that Fridays is only prayer days at the Taj…

I Sneeze Dead People

We started our morning with the market tour, we visited 4 different markets around the old city of Varanasi. The first one was the Paan leaf market, remember on the last post that weird dessert made of multiple herbal ingredients that you need to put in your mouth all at once? Well, here they buy…

Varanasi – The City Of Light

Varanasi is the oldest functioning city in the world. Next to the sacred Ganges river, the city was made by the god of destruction Shiva, so most temples are dedicated to this god. We woke up for a sunrise boat tour at the Ganges river, our guide Babu appeared to be stoned out of his…

Just Another Transit day

Disclaimer: This day was a transit day, so not many pictures were taken but some stories can be told. We luckily survived Delhi and are on to Varanasi.  We hired a taxi from the hotel to take us the airport and we got to the airport in ample time in case we had any challenging…

That’s Sikh!

Delhi day #3: We are still alive; this is our last day sightseeing hell. It’s funny because everybody that we have been talking to tell you that they hate this city (locals and tourists alike). Most travelers even skip it; most locals get scammed as well. We have found the touristy sites here impressive, so…

Tombs and Bombs

Second day in Delhi and still alive! that is good news. We are getting a little more confident here but still decided to get another driver for the day. Our first stop was Akshardham Complex,  a Hindu mandir (temple), and a spiritual-cultural campus in Delhi. Surrounding the temple they built some theme park looking attractions…

No Problem!

First some geography class for those who didn’t pay attention in school: Do you know the difference between Delhi and New Delhi? Delhi is a Union Territory which has 11 districts, of which New Delhi is one. New Delhi is the capital of Delhi, as well as India. New Delhi is the area of Delhi…

Istuti Sri Lanka

Istuti means thank you in Singhalese, on of the 2 main languages in Sri Lanka, the other one is Tamil. Thank you, thank you, thank you Sri Lanka for being amazing, your people, your nature, your food, your relaxed atmosphere. Our expectations were blown away (we just didn’t like the tourist attraction crazy prices). We…
