Q. What were your first impressions about India?
At first, India can be quite overwhelming. Right here, everything is simply bigger—the cities, the traffic and chaos, the particular crowd. But as soon as we took a breath, we also noticed the big beauty in everything. It’s a country of mystery and spirituality, scents plus spices, and fascinating architecture in addition to monuments. It is one of the most colourful places we’ve ever been to be able to! The people are among the warmest and the majority of welcoming bunch we’ve actually had typically the pleasure to meet. Let’s say by Day 2 [of our trip], all of us totally fell in love with this country.
Q. Did you follow any dos and even don’ts while travelling around the nation?
We always try to follow often the written together with the unwritten rules in the countries we all visit. In India, many of us made sure we dressed conservatively and additionally avoided holding hands within public. All of us also ate with our hands, drank so many sweet lassis, smiled at everyone we met, and had at least one chai the day. We all always attempt to behave like the locals—in terms of locations we eat at, local transport, etc. We can tell from our experience—this is the best way to get to know a region and its individuals.
Queen. Which are the areas you ticked your Indian bucket list?
Number one is the Taj Mahal in Agra. We desperately wanted for you to visit it for years not to mention seeing this in real life exceeded all our own expectations. The city associated with Jaipur was simply a new dream with an abundance of spectacular buildings. Many of us just couldn’t get enough of all the colourful details, especially at your Amer Fort and City Palace.
Q. Did you face any challenge on your trip?
Once, most of us had to spend a five-hour-long train journey sitting on the floor as the exact train has been running full, and the only way to get on that train was to buy an unreserved ticket! But even then, we had a great time talking to fellow travellers.
Q. Your message to folks planning a trip to Of india?
Just do that! Many people are hesitant when it comes to visiting India. While some state it’s not safe to help travel, others are afraid if they’ll be able to handle the very spicy food or a crowd. Despite all the odss, there were the main best time in Asia. The only dangerous thing that will could happen to you is getting stuck inside tra•c. Other than that, we felt 100 per cent comfortable and safe during the entire trip. Yes, the food can be a little spicy, but it’s incredibly delicious. Similarly, the people may be very a lot to handle at times, yet they’re super friendly and also welcoming.
Q. Do you plan to return? If yes, what’s next on your bucket listing?
Oh yes, we definitely plan towards visit again. We’d love to see more regarding Rajasthan, probably sometime close to the Holi festival. Visiting Varanasi is also on each of our list. Also, we’d like to go on a Royal Enfield tour through the Himalayas within the north. We had rented one in Kerala last time as well as totally loved it! The indian subcontinent is such a good enormous state, one lifetime is not really enough that will see it all!
