 I spent 150 days in India, visited 18 states and cycled 7300 km in this country. First I arrived from Pakistan then I visited Amritsar, New Delhi, Agra, Ajmer and I spent the Christmas of 2015 in Puskar. Then I traveled by train to Mumbai and continued my journey to explore the beautiful Goa and Karnataka and the amazing jungles and super tasty bananas of Kerala. Then Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, Odisha just next to the Bengal Bay. After I left this state I went to Varanasi and on 1th of March 2016 I moved to Nepal. After Nepal I went back to India to see the northeastern part of this enourmus subcontinent. In Westbengal I have been to Darjeeling, and from this city I cycled to the most organic state of India: Sikkim. Then Assam, Meghalaja, Nagaland and Manipur.  I enjoyed staying in India, this country is very very colorful with its 1.3 Million inhabitants. You can find every type of places: seasides, hills, mountains, lakes, lot of religious places, etc. The food is cheap and quite good. However my body needed some times to get used to the spices. My favorite state was Kerala with its amazing jungles and tribe people, Sikkim with its cleannes and Manipur with the awesome green hills.  I liked the habit at the southern part of India that the people use banana leafs as a tray or plate and you can eat from it and throw it away :)

I was fortunate enough to get a scholarship to attend a leadership course that included a study tour of India. It may be a cliche, but it changed my life

In December 2010 we embarked on an ambitious journey to India.

Starting in Delhi we explored Rajasthan with the blue city of Jodphur, pink city of Jaipur, spotted monkeys in Pushkar, watched the sun set over the stunning lake palaces in Udiapur, hunted in vain for tigers in Rathambore national park and saw our first wonder of the world - The Taj Mahal!

We then headed south to the laid back, steamy backwaters of Kerala for beach life, riding converted rice barges and drinking beer from teapots.

India is a difficult, dirty, polluted and heartbreaking country to visit in some respects. I thought I was prepared for the poverty and the chaos, I wasn't.

People sleep on the streets in the shadows of multi million pound sky scrapers, children starve and people still die of treatable illnesses.

Despite wanting to visit India for years, half of the time I wanted to go home.

But just as you think you've reached the end of your patience, tolerance or wits, India has a way of showing you exactly why you wanted to come in the first place.

Whether it is architecture so exquisite it makes you cry, or whether it is a crowd of local women in jewel bright saris, a market full of exotic produce or simply eating peanut curry on the rooftop of a havali overlooking a tranquil lake.

Make no mistake, seeing the real India is hard work, it isn't a holiday, a lot of the time it felt like an endurance race.

But it was worth it. For every grim, upsetting, gut wrenching sadness, there was always something uplifting.

Despite saying I'd never go back, enough time has passed for me to remember the good and to know that I'll be heading out there again.

 In the summer of 2015, I went to India on a regional girl guiding trip with eleven other girls and four leaders. It was a truly incredible experience which will stay with me forever. As part of the trip, we did community projects at the Girl guiding world centre in Pune. I worked at a school for slum children, which was completely eye-opening and astonishing to see how different and poorly other people live. 

As part of the trip we also visited the Taj Mahal, went for an elephant and a camel ride, and bought saris.

In the summer we traveled through India. It was impressive and totally worth every penny. From the mountains to the Taj Mahal, everything was beautiful and even the less beautiful stuff like the smells, hit and poverty, made India, India.

 A short distance from Sydney is the Katoomba rainforest and the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains. You can walk in the rainforest, catch the scenic railway or go on the cable and skyway that hangs above the forest. The views are breathtaking!

 Expect to be challenged, inspired, inconvenienced, enlightened and stared at!

But go for that experience and to have some great stories to tell when you get home.

I stayed in Trivandrum India for a week. My first trip abroad and it was a geography trip from high school. Tones of places to see from museums, flea markets, beaches...etc.

I did activities such hiking rainforest, mountains... All very new for me and a great fun learning experience.

I gotta admit the best bit was shopping at big bazaar and going to Happy Land ( water park) with all my friends back at school

 The place where my soul comes alive, and all my senses are stimulated. This is a place that dreams are made of, and the people are just amazing. It goes without saying that the food is heavenly, and the history of this beautiful country shines through at every turn. I couldn't love this place more if I tried. I've been here three times, and there will be so many more visits to come.
