my favourite shots of India

I miss India.

The sight of something new everywhere I turn, the smell of chai on the streets of Calcutta (I love and prefer the old romantic spelling of what is now known as Kolkata, ugh), the heavy lingering taste of herbs and spices in every meal, the majestic sights of grand old architecture, the never-ending expanse of the Thar Desert...

I can go on and on about what I loved about India, but you (and I) would rather not.

My six favourite photos below.

Right before we did the crazy death-defying (ahem) 6-course zip-lining over the Mehrengarh Fort, the blue city of Jodhpur, and a lake on a beautiful sunset

My cheeky ride for the Thar Desert leg, Rocket.
We did not have a camera stand so had to resort to stacking my camera on books and bags.
And it is one of the best group picture that I have ever taken.

Feel free to email me if you are planning to travel to India for the first time, I'll be glad to share some tips and advice.
Bear in mind that our trip took place in late Oct - early Nov 2012.
