The journey begins

We got into the car and I was thinking that my boyfriend never told me much about how I should be (mentally) prepared for India. He just said it was very important to come with an open mind and that’s it. Now I could see everything and the result (which without doubt he expected) was asking him thousands of questions, like a child who is mesmerized with life. “Sweety, why are people so angry and honk all the time?”, “Sweety, there is another guy peeing over there. He’s the 10th I counted in the last 2 minutes. Do you have toilets in India?”, “Oh my God, don’t run that dog over”, “Watch out, there is a car there! And there…and there…”, “Cow!!!Quickly, my camera!” were some of the most frequent remarks flying out of my mouth. During the 2 days I spent with Michael and my future brother-in-law in Delhi, we met some of their cousins and friends and took care of certain things which had to be done. I also quickly learned that wherever you go you have to carry your toilet paper with you, because they only use hands in India.  On Saturday, the two of us left for Agra, the city of the Taj-Mahal…and of my future mother-in-law.

The Journey Begins

We all have seen pictures of this monument while growing up but those pictures don’t do justice and one has to visit it to get why this has been on the list of seven wonders of the world. My best friend Sam and Sarah accompanied me, after reaching New Delhi, we decided to take a train to Agra and trust me it’s the most convenient and cheap way to reach the destination as the journey is roughly of 2 hours.when we reached Agra,we immediately booked our return ticket so that we wouldn’t have to face any inconvenience, taxi stand, and rickshaws were available outside the station, we booked a taxi for the entire day on rate of 800 Indian rupees($8 roughly)after negotiating with the taxi driver who was very kind to us throughout our journey.Although you have an option of getting much cheaper rides such as rickshaws they are less convenient especially when you are travelling during the summers as it’s very hot in India.

INDIA: The Magical Wonders of Agra

Early February 2016, my family and I travelled to North India and visited 4 major cities, Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Jodhpur. To save all the excitement and keep you wondering, I have decided to share with you my travels in Agra first since it is the most beautiful of all the 4 cities I visited. We hired a private tour that took us in a SUV for just the four of us to all the four cities. The cities were far apart so yes, they were pretty long car rides with short stops along the way for lunch and tea.

A Day in Jodhpur, The Majestic Blue City

Jodhpur – is one of the largest cities in Rajasthan, India, acknowledged for its unique rhapsody of the blue houses and its mighty Mehrangarh Fort. Known as the gateway to the Thar Desert, it is located about 340 km from Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan.  It was the last city I visited on my summer vacation last year. I did not expect much at first because it was just our alternative stop before going back to Ahmedabad from Agra. Yet, Jodhpur is like an oasis in the desert, offering more than you ever wish for.
