Varanasi (India)

Taj Mahal (Agra, India)

The Grand Taj Mahal. It speaks for itself.

Sailing on the Ganges (India)

Unquestionably one of the most amazing and memorable experiences of my life thus far. Sailing on the Ganges for day days and camping on the riverbank. No tourists, no noise, no garbage, no technology, no motor, no nothing but pure and simple nature and India at its best. To feel so isolated in a country of so many and see the mystical beauty of the country was unbeleiveable. 

We floated on the water for an hour watching river dolphins. Dolphins in the Ganges. Yes. Tons of them. Amazing.

Sailing and camping

Some of the best food I had on my trip was made by the
Awesome guys on the kitchen boat that followed behind us.

Sandbank we camped on. Milies of barren land.

Literally in the middle of nowhere.

This is life.

Amazing India II

Calcutta. Mother Teresa's house. Victoria Place.

Train ride from hell. 9 hours waiting for a train in a rural town
That never came. 13 hr straight car ride to follow.
Experience of a lifetime.
