Jodhpur // India

Two posts in two days! Luck you! Throwing it all the way back to India again! Sorry I’ve been so lame with posts but I’ll try to catch you up as fast as I can!

Another city, (blue this time) and another castle called Mehrangarh Fort. I’m starting to sense a recurring pattern here… I feel like forts in India are a bit like temples in Thailand, there’s one in every city and each one is not to be missed. To be fair, every fort we have seen in India has been pretty amazing.

Jaisalmer // India

DSC01506

It may have taken us 9 hours and 600km to get here but Jaisalmer is easily the best part of India Charlie and I have explored so far. A pretty easy statement to make considering we’ve only actually visited two other places but Jaisalmer has made an impact on both of us and we’re both fairly certain that this place will be one of our highlights.

Mandawa // India

“Everything is possible in India, baby.”
Our driver, Babu, says this literally every 5 minutes because the most absurd things happen every 5 minutes. The amount of times a cow/dog/sheep/goat/camel has almost flown through the windshield is unbelievable. But I will admit, it is a relief to be in a car rather than enduring a 17 hour train journey to Jaisalmer.

“I think I’ve underestimated India”

One of the first phrases Charlie mumbled as we weaved between tuk tuks, cars, people, not only trying to prevent ourselves from getting run over but also trying not to trample any of the children that lay on the floor rolling in the dirt. I think it’s probably safe to say that both Charlie and I have underestimated India considering it has taken us 2 planes, 1 tuk tuk ride, 1 train, 4 people attempting to help us and 24 hours to finally get to a hotel. 2 of those hours were spent in a tourist office trying to figure out what the hell we are going to do in India for the next 20 days.

Missing Home

There are so so so many advantages to travelling, you get to see the world and you learn what you are really capable of. During travelling I have been pushed past limits I didn’t think I could possibly go past but now thanks to travelling I know myself that much better. But with so many pros to travelling, of course there are cons, I am now on the last leg of my current adventure and the itch to get home is stronger than ever.­Travelling is hard. No one tells you how hard it is. But it’s because as soon as you are home all those bad memories completely fade away and you wish more than anything you were travelling again.

Ko Samui

Yesterday evening we arrived in the beautiful Ko Samui. I was pretty dubious as to whether I would actually like it here as I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews. But it has exceeded expectations by a long way.

We had a quiet evening last night, only going out to buy food and then coming back to our hostel to take advantage of it’s amazing wifi. BLISS!!! But today has been oh so hectic. For a mere £7 we were being shown nearly all the sights of Ko Samui… We started off with the Ko Samui view point. There was so much blue it was breathtaking! We were so lucky with the weather… I would almost go as far to say that the weather today is one of the best day’s we’ve had this whole trip…
