DUFMOD TRAVELS | INDIA
India's history, culture & heritage is as unique as it is rich. The country is huge and because of it's size, the climate, fawn, architecture, lifestyle and food is diverse. The new with the old. We spent 2 months and still feel the urge to return to explore further. The most consistent thing was friendly locals, extravagant markets and culture, goats, cows, honking, and pungent aromas.
"The land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendor and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of hundred nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of traditions, whose yesterday’s bear date with the modering antiquities for the rest of nations" - Mark Twain
Starting in the south of India where palm trees, floating through canals, and a coconut based diet got us excited.
Masala Chai tea and a wholesome diet kept us going to a Yogis paradise - Mysore and Bangalore. We are Yoga lovers and aromatherapy is a staple in our practice. Kick your practice up a knotch with wholesome eating and sharing your practice where yoga was born. Mysore is also well known for their Ayurvedic Massages. Next we set out to see what the hype was about in Goa.
Ancient temples and ruins will make you gawke at the detailed carvings before throwing you forward into medieval palaces and forts in the pink city (Jaipur), blue city (Jodhpur) and the golden city (Jaisalmer) while the desert romances you with camels and sleeping underneath the stars.
Of course, who could ever forget the most iconic destination in Agra- The Taj Mahal.
