Bye Bye India, Hello Nepal

Having been in India this long makes me feel like a superhero. It’s a series of hard won battles. The food that I fell in love with in DC is now accessible to me, the spices, the vegetables, the oils that its cooked in no longer cause me the gastrointestinal equivalent of a London firebombing […]

5 things ill miss and 5 things I won’t (India) part I

(part I of II)! These are being uploaded when we are trekking the Ananpurna for 20ish days! Tons of updates when we return!   5 Food in Goa. Chicken tikka masala, garlic naan, palak paneer.

Goa

Its hot. I used to think I knew what hot was. Virginia and DC can get pretty oppressive in June and July, when the thermometer breaks 100 and the humidity is at a level where it feels more like you’re swimming than walking. But this is hot. It’s funny the things you learn whilst you […]

Vacation from our vacation: Havelock Island and SCUBA diving!

The Andaman islands…its hard to know where to begin cause there’s so much to write about. The two weeks we were there flew by. It took us about 35 hours to reach the island Havelock, two flights, a night from hell in Calcutta, a ferry ride and seven tuk tuk rides. By the time we […]

Kolkata – 17 hour layover from hell

Are you a slave to consistency? Do you wince at a white towel that is now more a dingy grey? Do you have a need for a basic human level of hygiene? Then budget lodging in India is not for you! Still woozy from the sickly sweet, opiate level high of Varanasi, Brittany and I […]

Boatride on the Ganges in Varanasi

Thank you Varanasi!

I extend a wholehearted thank you to Varanasi, for really giving us a chance to enjoy India. Along the waterfront, the only people trying to sell you things are selling boat rides and hash, and neither are particularly pushy. We arrived off of an 8 hour sleeper train after a full day of touring Agra […]

Agra, India and the hostel of fleas

Agra, India… home of the Taj Mahal. This was one of the “must-see” stops while we are in India and man was it worth it. The Taj is definitely one of the more stunning buildings Ive ever seen and even more so because the entire building was built as a token of love (awe.. i […]
