Tombs, Temples & Treasure

I booked this trip to Egypt last minute and although I’ve travelled a lot by myself in the past I felt that it was best to book on a tour for this destination. I booked via ‘On the Go’ Tours and it was a great trip (would recommend).  Our tour was a young group, 20-30 […]

One of the jewels of Jaipur, the temple complex encompasses natural fresh water springs and 7 holy ‘kunds’ or water tanks. Among these kunds, the ‘Galta Kund’, is the holiest one and is believed to never get dry. A spring […]

Although its a primarily Hindu festival many other communities join in too. It is customary on this day to visit friends and relations with sweets and colour. This festival also has many […]

We hired a private driver in Delhi for the next 3 weeks to ensure we can get to all the locations we want to see. After a 5 hour drive to Agra we checked into our hotel to get an early night ready for our visit to the Taj Mahal the next day. The Taj Mahal […]
