Lauren&Toms India travels

26 January 2017

And relax.... we then travelled to Goa to spend 5 nights at Agonda Beach staying with Duck'n'chill. It really was, chill! That concludes the end of our India trip. Onwards to Sri Lanka!!!

We then got an overnight train to the middle of nowhere because we were going to do our AMAZING luxury 4 night 3 day stay in bandhavgarh national park with Pugdundee safaris. We stayed at treehouse hideaway and it was the most beautiful place. We did 6 safari's and ended up seeing 9 BEAUTIFUL TIGERS INCLUDING 6 CUBS. It was absolute incredible and I cannot thank the staff and our guide Mohan enough. We were the only guest there so they really treated us like royalty. I cried when we left so I guess that explains it all.

After Delhi we got a car transfer to Agra where we stayed for a few days. The Taj was absolute beautiful. We also visited an Elephant Rehabilitation centre called Wildlife SOS roughly 40 minute car journey from Agra where we spent a few hours learning about the elephant trades in India and where the rescued elephants came from. Eye-opening experience and you should really visit if you can.

We then got another train to Delhi!! This was a double decker so it was pretty cool!! We spent a few days here sight seeing. We visited Arkshadham temple which is really new but you cant take your phones or cameras inside the complex but it was awesome!! Also the lotus temple, Ghandi's resting place.

13 January 2017

after Jodhpur we caught an early morning train to Jaipur also known as the pink city! We visited amber fort, hawa mahal, monkey temple, water palace etc etc. Pics speak for themselves!

We then spent a few days in Jodhpur also known as the blue city. They had an awesome fort called The Mehrangrah fort on top of a massive hill.

7 January 2017

From Udaipur we got a car transfer to Jodhpur but en route stopped off at two places. One was Kumbhalgarh fort (home to the second largest wall in the world) and Ranakpur Temple! We also drove past an old local villager who was using a traditional irrigation system to water his crops on the fields! AMAZING

We only stayed in Mumbai for 1 night and the following day we took a plane to Udaipur! On the way from the airport in Udiapur to the city we saw our first elephant!! pretty amazing to see on our second day into our adventure. We only stayed 1 night and maybe should have stayed an extra day but had already pre-planned all of our India trip! Its known as the 'Venice of Asia' or so one of the locals said and our hotel played the James bond film 'Octopussy' on repeat every night as the Palace there was used as a location in the film!! (My iCloud is messing up so I cant add any more pictures, SORRY!!!)

5 January 2017

We left home and arrived in Mumbai, straight into the muggy weather and chaotic streets. We met two amazing guys on the local Mumbai train called Mohammed and Bilal who showed us around for the day. They were sooooooo kind and paid for everything (even the local train and tuk tuks which were 10 rupees a person which is penny's for us back in England)!! The showed us some local street food and it was amazing. Will keep in contact forever.
