 My Mum has always wanted to visit India, so we decided that whilst she was still physically fit enough to do that kind of thing, we'd go! We planned and booked the holiday over a year in advance, so we had plenty of time to prepare.

I decided that I didn't really want to read up about India at all. I wanted it all to be one big great surprise, but that is definitely something I'm going to change about my future travels. I feel like I'd have had a better, more insightful experience had I known more about the place before going.

Arriving in Delhi was strange. The smell was weird - a kind of sweet smell that I really can't describe! We were knackered of course, and when the guide came to pick us up to take us to the hotel we were given these good luck bracelets. Women had to wear it on their left and men on their right. We had a minibus all to ourselves over the first week of touring around which was both a blessing and a curse. Sometimes I felt like I wasn't getting a true experience, but rather a safari tour where they were the 'subjects' and we were the 'other'. But the aircon was pretty nice ;). 

We only managed to see such a tiny section of the country during our 2 weeks there, however each second of it was worth it! I had such an amazing time with my family. I really want to go again, especially to Jaipur - my favourite city.

My friends and I went to India in 2017. We toured Mumbai, Delhi, Agra, Rishikesh, and Haridwar. We went to Elephanta Caves, the Taj Mahal, and the Himalayan Foothills. We attended a wedding and got henna tattoos on our hands. It was an amazing experience and I would love to go back to explore other parts of the country.

I wanted to go to India as it is the place my heritage originates from- In December 2013 i went to India with my family. I saw where my grandparents were born and studied and where they fell in love. It was such an eye opening trip as i also had the opportunity of seeing the state that people have to live in a third world country. The simple delicacies of being able to get water from your tap is not something that many people had the opportunity to experience or have in their lives. I would recommend everybody to go, Yes India is a busy and developing country. But the scenery is magnificent and you relise how thank full we should be for the things we have.

It was the most beautiful, exotic place. I can't even begin to express the joy I felt when I was there. I can't even tell you - I saw the Taj Mahal, the sheer beauty of the culture and people, and experienced India head on.

I Went to India with a friend on my birthday! I spent my whole birthday in an airport and on a plane as the flight was 9 hours and was also delayed and the pilot said happy birthday to me over the speakers thanks to my friends family who requested it.http://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9365756196/We had the chance to experience the culture and go sight seeing as we were there for two weeks. Seeing how much of a struggle daily life can be for some of the people who live in Goa was a shock after being amazed by the beauty of the place. All of the locals where very welcoming and definately didn't turn down bags of sweets and clothes etc when we left.http://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9365756762/http://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9366282948/in/photostream/ I also made the decision to give 20 pounds which is about 1800 indian rupees to a family who was across from our apartment. This family had helped us understand India throughout our stay and often offered us food and items from their small stall for free as a gift of kindness. We grew close to this family and left clothes and small items of jewelery for them to either keep or sell. As the young girl of the family was getting married, she kept the jewellery I gave her as a wedding present.  The mother later toled me she wanted to use the money for her daughter to go to college and she thanked me. Which was such a shock as to us £20 isn't an awful amount of money. http://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9366282148/The area was beautiful and the beaches where fantastic. It was strange to think that such a beautiful place could contain so many people living in poverty.http://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9365753026/We really enjoyed meeting the locals who often would perform for money which we had no problem giving them. They are extremely thankful for anything they recieve and it was heart warming to see true appreciation for any help that they were given.http://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9365753600/Whilst we where there we stayed at a private beach for two nights luxury camping. Here we had an indian massage and locals came to perform a fire candle dance for us.http://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9363547985/We also got involved in the culture ourselves. One of the reasons my firend's family had chosen India is because Keith and Diane wanted to renew their vows following the cultures traditions. It was a beautiful ceremony and we all dressed in sari's that had been provided for us. http://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9365751784/http://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9365752130/Just a couple more photo's that i liked from our trip...Cows on the beach http://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9362976969/Henna tattooshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9365755656/in/photostream/Dudhsagar Falls:http://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9365754336/in/photostream/Feeding monkeys:http://www.flickr.com/photos/99369661@N03/9365754940/in/photostream/
