So here it is, brand new year 2016! I’m traveling already for 12 months and slowly getting to the end! How would I summarise the last year? In points, as I don’t have Internet in here.
If you want to be close to nature, go to India. It´s a place, where nature is everywhere, even in the city, even on the desert. You will see it sometimes with its flora but mostly by its fauna. Yes, I mean by the animals.
You can all laugh but before my arrival to India I was always convinced that Bollywood is actually a place you can visit, same as Hollywood in L.A. It appeared to be different after I arrived to Mumbai, the capital of Bollywood. There are many movie studios, and many guide tours but Bollywood as a “Movie city” doesn´t really exist.
I want to be clear about this: Mumbai is way too big to sum it up in 10 points, there are many more points of interests there and as I haven´t see everything, I will focus on things I liked most.
Udaipur was the last city in Rajasthan I´ve been to, and happy for me I have found a great host there so I could just lay back and relax for the whole week after the hassles in the past weeks. Udaipur is not like other Rajasthan cities, it is a lake city and it makes a huge difference when you´re surrounded by desserts.
I knew this didn´t make any sense to go from Jaipur to Agra and then go back to Jodhpur, but as I didn´t go to Agra before I had to see Taj Mahal. Partially because it´s a landmark, partially because haters gonna hate. So after my 2 days stay in Agra I found a 15 hours bus to Jodhpur, of course cheap one without AC, because I´m saving.
Initially I wanted to spend in Jaipur a week, but after three days I´ve already seen everything. It´s a big city, but there´s nothing really much to see (or to do). So my host Kamal advised me to go to Pushkar as he meant that it is a popular place where tourists like to go. And although I´ve never heard of Pushkar before I´ve just decided to go. Because why not?
