Is this really India? After a few challenging weeks in the city’s big cities, Goa was like a vacation in the vacation. I stumbled upon South Goa’s fantastic Patnem Beach for some much-needed rest and relaxation.
I spend a couple days in India’s most populous city, where my backpacker’s budget goes out the window and I marvel at the old, and new.
Mumbai’s hectic Crawford Market is the city’s biggest municipal market, housed in a grand old Victorian building dating to the 1800s.
Stuck in the city of Ahmedabad, waiting for a connecting train, I venture out on foot into the crazy city streets. This is the story of how I was hit by a moped crossing an intersection.
The first overnight train journey from Udaipur to Ahmedabad allows me to take in some of the beautiful scenery.
Udaipur is one of Rajasthan’s most picturesque destinations – a beautiful ancient city surrounding tranquil lakes. It was a nice way to cap off my trip to this Indian state.
A photo tour of Jodhpur’s main bazaar, a fun and vibrant market sitting at the base of the Mehrangarh Fort in this historic city.
The Indian state of Rajasthan is full of old forts and palaces, but Jodhpur’s Mehrangarh Fort is truly one of the most spectacular.
Fireworks, a marching band, electric lights, and dancing in the streets. This is baraat – an Indian wedding parade!
I make a hearty attempt at cramming in all the major tourist highlights of Jaipur in a single, action-packed day.
