Until we meet again: India

I think I've broken the record for most drawn out trip recap but to those that are still following along - this is the last installment. Hope you've enjoyed traveling with me. If you've missed the earlier installments, read all about my first stop in Delhi, Agra and Jaipur.

Our final few days were my favorite - we got to do more exploring in Old Delhi, score some great souvenirs and meet up with transplanted blogger Kay while we feasted at Karims.

For those who have asked, we used Delhi Magic to arrange the whole trip for us and they were EXCELLENT! If you are planning a trip to India, don't even think of using anyone else. Also not to be missed is a Masterji Kee Haveli walking tour - just a few hours with them and we got to experience a whole other side of Delhi. Just a great trip all around. I hope to make it back to India again.

  3. Love that you shared who planned your trip. If you can will you do that for other trips you take! Hope you go to Paris or Ireland soon so I can get cheat notes from you!

  4. For a country where lots of informations and bookings can be done online, I don't use an agent. Its just not necessary - you can easily do it yourself. (I haven't been to Ireland but Paris is extremely easy to DIY). In this case, I wanted someone to help us arrange a good driver and guides in the various cities which is not easy to do online and if you don't speak the language. Off the top of my head, the only other country I felt an agent was needed was China. We took an organized tour there.

  6. I love the bracelet pic!  Great post.  There is NO WHERE like India and everyone should go at least once.   Agree - using an agent and having drivers is super important especially when you have a lot of stops.

    I have loved the whole India series. It's been very enlightening and I appreciate that you revealed the travel agency- I don't think my mom would worry so much about my going if I show her your posts :)
     You have a such great eye for photography, for capturing scenes and transporting us into that moment. Many times you catch people looking straight at you- I don't think I am quite that bold, but I will try harder, it's a lesson I've learned from you.
    What are those cards with the heart cut-outs meant for?

  13. Thanks! Your mother shouldn't worry - India felt quite safe to me.

    As for photographing people - its hit or miss. About half of the people I ask say no and I just move on. In India, there is always something to photograph. Occassionally people go out of their way to pose or smile for a photo which is always nice (like the guy who held up his goat on a far away rooftop to show me!) Its definitely worth being a bit bold to get a good shot. At least thats my view.

  14. I really love your pictures. Maybe you could give us your tips for such fabulous photos. Where do you get your design inspirations from? Can't wait to see what else you'll be bringing us this year.

    All of the photos are lovely and I was particularly intrigued by the one with the sewing machine. I had to look at it twice as I thought it had a typo on it or I was seeing it wrong, saying Singar instead of Singer. I did a little research and found a few other photos online of Singar machines. Fascinating! I wonder if it's an Indian company and if they overlap manufacture of the original Singers.

  18. Simply stunning.  I hope that on my next trip I can take pictures at least 1/10th as beautiful as yours.  The colors are just so vivid.

    I love that goat pic so much! I would order it online for sure. Maybe you can load it to a site like Society6. I don't know how it works as the artist but I just ordered from them and was super happy. I'd love that photo in our home. Great work.
