Traveling Trini

Growing up on the small island of Trinidad and Tobago felt like 'living on vacation', it's a laid back lifestyle where the only thing that seemed important is education and where we were going to spend the weekend. Now I live to travel and explore!

    Akshardham Swaminarayan, New Delhi

    September 24, 2016 in India ⋅ 🌫 81 °F

    I really can't complain about my flight. I don't mind the redeye at all. Arrived in Delhi at 12:30am , hint ( if you did an online etourist visa like I did, go straight to the etourist line ) breezed through customs, driver was waiting for me, got to the hotel around 2:15am. Shower and Bed! Awoke at 9am, at the beautiful Vivanta by Taj Hotel where I wolfed down a Devine breakfast! Too hungry for pics! Then after a nice shower , we were off. We were greated with malas (flower necklaces) by our driver and then taken to see the most magnificent Temple Akshardham, SwamiNarayan. This temple can take several hours to tour, it is grand in every way. The temple took 5 years and 70,000 craftsmen to complete it! Cameras were not allowed, we had to check them in with security. For around $3 we took a 2 hour guided tour of the temple, worth it's weight in gold. I ended my tour with Arthi and prayers, which was the highlight of my Day! We arrived back at the Hotel just in time for a most scrumptious Indian feast! TOMORROW BEGINS OUR OFFICIAL START TO OUR TOURS!!Read more

    1 more sleep and I get to cross off a few bucket list item. Riding on the back of an elephant, a camel ride, a rickshaw ride and many other adventures. Coupled with yoga and meditation daily!! I never thought I would actually make it to India and the fact that I am going to try to make it to Lord krishna's birth place, vrindavan, is even more amazing. Delhi, agra (taj mahal), jaipur and a few other cities are on the list! I will be accompanied by my sweet friend Brenda Miller. Flying from Malaysia to be my buddy on this adventure! Another work trip... i love my job!…/Chandigarh-Private-Day…/d804-34682P8…/Private-Day-Trip-to-Ma…/d804-34682P3
