incredible india

took me a while but here are some photos from my trip in india (not in any particular order, see full album on my flickr).

i don't really want to bore you with travel stories but here are a few highlights:

▲ taj mahal is just special and mind blowing. the whole architecture and history is just breath taking. 

▲ the trips between cities were just crazy busy noisy. animals are just everywhere. sheep, camels, pigs, donkeys, monkeys and of course cows. also all the honking and trucks and overloaded buses or tuktuks. super crazy.

▲ i love the amber fort in jaipur. the architecture which is a mix of islamic and hindu style and the landscape view surrounding it was so stunning you'll feel like you step into an ancient arabian nights tale. 

▲ bargain shopping at the bazaar in pink city was a good fun and satisfying. 

▲ the food was sooo good and i had the best indian food (obviously) although by the end of the trip i didn't want to eat any more curry. 

india is nothing like any other travels that i've done before, it was such an interesting place to be and i'm glad i made it there. if you have a chance to go to india or thinking of going, stop all those doubtful feeling and go go go. or if india has never been on your travel list before, well you should add this in or at least start considering. there are still some film rolls that i am yet to develop from the trip, stay tuned!

  5. Hey Laura, don't really know if you remember me, but I wrote you and email a while back and you gave me some nice tips about blogging. I decided to follow them (a bit late...) and now I invite you to take a look around. I'm still defining its personality, but it's a start. Hope you enjoy!

    Now, about your post:
    My oh My!! the photos are just wonderful. India has always been on my "where to go list" --for sure! I hope to visit there soon.

    have a great weekend! Bye!

  17. I love the peacocks, nothing beats India for vibrant colours!

    When I went to the Taj Mahal they insisted I couldn't bring a yellow highlighter in and I had to buy a locker. Random! But the mausoleum was beautiful!
