India Trip 2013: 3 weeks of awesomeness

December 12, 2013  •  5 Comments

Namaskar everybody! Aap kaise ho?

Wow! what an awesome experience! India is an amazing country! If you have a chance to visit, DO IT!

I had the pleasure and honour of doing so this past November, along with a great group of people!

Taj MahalOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Yep, almost 3 weeks of great experience, from northern Dehradun to Mumbai, Delhi, Agra, Pushkar... lots of miles covered by autorickshaw, cars, trains, planes, pimped up chariots with crazy LED lights, hot-air balloon and camels! (Well, Julia even went for an elephant ride! :) 

While there, we were able to attend and check out the Diwali Festival of lights AND a traditional indian wedding! how awesome can that be?!?! 

Crazy at times, amazing food, beautiful landscape and welcoming people!

Dhanyawad big time for the patience as it takes a long while to go through a few thousand photos! and of course, it's hard to pick and choose which ones I should publish...  So, in the next few days (and weeks), keep an eye open and you'll see some cool shots here on this blog!

Here's a few, just to start our journey ! Enjoy!

I took this one in Dehradun, one of our first "stops" in India, hometown of the Bahuguna's! The stores are full of fireworks and everybody's getting ready for Diwali, the festival of lights...

This one, we got stuck in traffic, right after we arrived in Bombay! or should I say Mumbai? Anyways... we look to the side and see this truck: RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL: DO NOT REMAIN NEAR THIS VEHICLE UNNECESSARILY!

i love it!

 

Autorickshaw and motorcycles/scooters! The best way of moving around in big cities, as the streets are packed with peeps and cars (and animals, hehe!

 

While in Bombay, we shot a video for Koel and the Twin Otter's City Lights, so check out soon their website for the latest updates!

 

Still in Mumbai, just beside the Prince of Wales museum saw a kid doing acrobatics:

and let's buy our cellphones from a "street vendor"!

 

Driving around in Pushkar, we saw camels...

And met a traditional man from Rajasthan offering prayers!

Gulab jamun, one of the best ways of keeping your glucose levels high up...

Taj Mahal: There will be a full post with photos from this day! it's quite an amazing spot! touristy, but still quite cool!

In Delhi, I'd avoid parking the car in a wrong spot...

And of course, the highlight of the trip: Traditional indian wedding! Congratulations Hitesh & Neha!

Dhanyawad for your time! and hope you can continue following our journey in the next post.

Again, awesome set. What caught my eye were the small wooden flat spoons alongside the gulab-jamun. I remember them from when I was about 10.
