India

Not sure if I remember how to do this blogging bit. I’ve been working ridiculous hours, nights and weekends. Ugh. Consumer or employee… advertising will eat your soul. But I’m gonna make a break for it! Jetting off to India for 2 weeks!

Planning a 2 week trip to India is like planning a 2 hour trip to Disneyland. Even after opting for flights (instead of trains and buses) between a couple of cities, there’ll just be no way to see everything we want to see. We settled on key cities in the state of Rajasthan, in the north. Sadly, we won’t be able to see the place that made me fall in love with the idea of visiting India – the Golden Temple. Hard choices had to be made. Kell had to give up something he wanted to see as well – Jodphur, otherwise known as the Blue City. But, no sense dwelling on what we won’t see.. just an excuse to go back.

As luck would have it, we’ll be there during the Holi Festival! Knowing this, we planned our route around it and the Elephant Festival in Jaipur the day before. Our route will be something like: Delhi, Agra, Orchha, Jaipur, Udaipur then Veranasi.

Below is a little image tour of things I hope to see. Eeeeeeeeeeeee! So excited!
