Thank you to the owner of this incredible restaurant for taking care of our stomachs. If you plan to visit Varanasi you cannot miss this place! 🍚🍲🍶
Let me introduce you to our cookie monster 🙈🍪

We met Anna 4 days ago in Agra and enjoyed spending some time with her in Varanasi. She's a passionate and courageous traveler from Milano. She taught me a lot about traveling alone as a woman. I'm grateful to have Dino by my side because I would never be able to do what she does. It demands a lot of strength, patience and bravery.
She's also a photographer and writer and if you want to know more about her you can have a look at her homepage!
Varanasi by night. People, cows, motorbikes, rickshaws, dogs everywhere.
It's one of the world's oldest continually inhabited cities.
Yesterday we went to the Manikarnika Ghat which is the main ghat of cremation. We saw 2 dead bodies and their families standing beside them waiting their turn.
We didn't see any female family members. We asked a local guide and he told us that women stay at home and mourn the passing of their beloved ones while men transport the body to the Ghat by boat.
I wished I could write more about what we saw yesterday but you have to see it to make your own perception of this mysterious and mystical city.
It's not the best place in the world to relax but surely one of the best to try your nerves.
Hi everyone, yesterday I didn't post pictures or write notes because I had food poisoning for the last 3 days. Since day 1 of our journey we tried to avoid some kinds of food and still got food poisoned. Even Dino 😶 yeah, big love. We share everything together😷.
I think this is something a tourist has to deal with while traveling to India.
I talked to some tourists about my food poisoning and everyone had its own story which was kind of funny. And believe me I heard really bad stuff Some people pooped their underwear, others started to run a fever, threw up...
Today I feel better (fingers crossed) and I will post some new pics of Varanasi as soon as I can.
Have a good day ✌🏼️🐵🐮🇮🇳

Best guesthouse in Jaipur! We met a wonderful family who teached us a lot about Indian culture! I had the best rice milk ever ( sorry mom 😜). Shakti thank you! Namaste

Today we met 2 amazing people who managed to do their best to show us the city of Jaipur. They were simply warm, welcoming and wonderful. They reminded me that the world is full of lovely people. The driver gave me his book and asked me to write something about the trip so I did. The picture shows the cover of the book. I know it's an old quote but I ❤️ it!
Thank you Khalid for this crazy and amazing day!
To my lovely and dear friend I met one year ago. Thank you...no other words needed ☺️ ❤️
The world is full of beauty, you don't need to be rich to seek for it! You only need the courage to leave everything behind and start a new chapter in you life but don't forget where you came from.
Be your hero! ✌🏼
This tiny bottle was a present from very close friends of us! It has a little grape leave from the Moselle in it! I always keep it with me and try to make pictures of it every day. Today it had the pleasure to meet the lion. 😜
This tiny little bottle reminds me of my beautiful little country and I'm grateful to have it by my side. Beni and Kimi you're the best! We love you ❤️

Today I realized one thing....when you invest your love to someone or something you invest your life. Don't be afraid to fail, don't let people tell you what to do with your life. It's yours not theirs. Like they say, YOLO😜 so live one day at the time, don't think about tomorrow. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? There is no life forecast so if you feel capable of doing something then DO IT! If you don't trust yourself then do it even more!!! The only person you have to amaze in this world is YOURSELF!
...one day at the time... <3

First destination India!
Crowdy, noisy and dirty Delhi but fortunately there are still places that make you forget that you are in one of the most polluted cities in the world.
We met lovely local people at a restaurant today (11.8.16), we shared their table and talked about our countries. And btw people still think that Luxembourg is part of Germany 😜
