Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Would have obviously loved more time to visit the NorthWest of India - including the blue and pink city and the desert.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Landslide season meant we couldn't take the bus as far as we planned. Be sure to agree on prices before doing anything and what that includes as we had a few discrepancies during our trip on.

  • How was the food?

    The food in India is sooooo good. We tried everything from street food, to restaurants, to sweet treats from bakeries. See some of my tagged places

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Anything hot is safe to eat! Get to know what prices to pay for things early on as its normal to be charge triple the price if not more for things.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Tuk tuks are the easiest way to get around in cities, otherwise the night buses and trains were great. Sometimes you can pay extra for a meal with your ticket.

  • Booking details?

    We didn't book anything except our first homestay - this allowed us to go with the flow which is perfect in India as nothing runs to time.
