    Mumbai - The last day...

    April 13, 2018 in India ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    On our last day, we went on a city tour with our new guide Prakash and saw all of the famous landmarks most of which I already knew which is why there's not photos of them. You do see the well-known place at the border of a slum where most of the city's laundry gets washed and ironed before it will mysteriously return to their owners. I was the first to head to the airport and thus got to see the cities skyline at the time of the sunset. A beautiful way to say goodbye...Read more

    Mumbai - Trip to Elephanta Island

    April 12, 2018 in India ⋅ 🌬 32 °C

    We spend a lot of time at Kota train station after our train was delayed. The train ride itself was quite nice, but we arrived at 12:30 instead of 9:00 as planned. The city tour was then postponed to the next day, and we went to explore Elefanta island, an island which is known for it ancient Hindu temple. I prefered taking photos of the ships though... I had missed one of my favorite motif.Read more

    Passing through Kota

    April 11, 2018 in India ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    From Bundi, we went straight to Kota where we had to hide from the rain. We still go to see replica of the 8 modern world wonders (you can guess by the number of photos in this post how impressed I was by them…) and went for a stroll in the market area. Now THIS was interesting. So colourful, loud, smelly… very stereotypically Indian I guess. I’ll post some videos as well as they tell the story better than the photos. From the market we went to a restaurant where we were once again served excellent food and from there to the train station, where we wanted to take the night train to Mumbai...Read more

    Bundi - During the day

    April 11, 2018 in India ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    We only did went on a one-hour walk through Bundi, but there was so much to see (hence the three posts): guesthouses, temples, vendors, traidesmen - and women, cows, it seemed to me as quite the hippi town :-)

    Arriving in Bundi

    April 10, 2018 in India ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    After another long day on the bus we finally reached Bundi where we slept in large and sort of luxerious tents next to a lake. The atmosphere in the evening was beautiful and peaceful and we were all able to relax over a pint or a cup of tea. After dinner a group of traditional singers and dancers performed, some of us even joined them in their dance.Read more

    Udaipur - Oh, the romance!

    April 9, 2018 in India ⋅ 🌙 34 °C

    In the evening we went to a beautifully situated restaurant where we had delicious food and cocktails. I had my first Gimlet which I really liked. Now I am trying to find lime cordial in Indonesia... so far without luck. However, the atmosphere was as romantic as it looks and it's not a surprise that Udaipur is also known to be called "the beauty".Read more

    Udaipur during the day

    April 9, 2018 in India ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    From Jodhpur, we went to Udaipur passing some interesting sights on the way (see other post). We arrived late at night in Udaipur but got up early to go on a Tuk Tuk Tour to a garden and then to the lake on which we did a boat tour. Later, some of us visited a Hindi temple and went strolling along the many streets filled with shops selling cloth, handicraft or souvenirs. We got to see a lot of every day life scenes again which was really nice.Read more
