So last I left off in my India trip recap, we had just left Delhi. Its a 5 hour drive to Agra and we were totally unsure of what to expect along the road. Well I can say the drive was one of the most interesting rides I've ever taken. Every few hundred yards there is something else amazing to see. As I've mentioned, its complete sensory overload pretty much everywhere we went. Its a shame we were moving at high speeds because I missed so many amazing photos as we zipped by.
That afternoon we made our way through Akbar's Tomb and the Red Fort.
The following morning we were up bright and early to make our way to the grand dame of India, the Taj Mahal. A monument with an beautiful love story, this site is hugely popular for a reason. Its absolutely beautiful. Sadly my body decided that particular day was when it would make its unhappiness with my travel destination known. I won't get into the gory details but let's say that while the Taj Mahal was absolutely beautiful and the 5 hour drive to Jaipur was just as interesting as the ride to Agra, this was not my favorite day.
Because I wasn't feeling so well we didn't make it to any of the other Agra attractions. In fact I nearly didn't make it to the Taj Mahal but I just couldn't allow myself to miss it.
Thankfully I was feeling better after a good nights sleep. It seems I survived Delhi belly and could now wear the badge of honor. Off we went to tackle Jaipur. More on that in a later post.
