Refreshing Dusk!

INDIA | Sat, 18 Mar 2017 | By missmouse | Views [557]

I got to admit that I love the unfamiliarity of the places unknown. Like an addiction for them, I get attracted toward such places. Meeting new people and sharing our journey to them whilst in return knowing their story. There’s always something ... Read more >

November 5th, and 6th, 2016 It's again been a few days since I could write. It seems Internet is harder to come-by in northern India. Hotels have been limiting us to using one device on Wi-Fi per day. I'm not really sure why, but it's super frustrating.... Read more >

INDIA | Mon, 26 Oct 2015 | By finally | Photo Gallery

GOA We took an "AC sleeper" bus (yes, beds so you have to lie down the whole time!!) from Hampi to Goa. First time we took a "sleeper" bus, honestly we didn't even know that existed. Since of course we don't make reservations we had to walk in the scorching ... Read more >

INDIA | Fri, 17 Jul 2015 | By hitesh | Views [563]

Start your day at as early as four in the morning or as late as eleven at night, change to clothes that are dirty and torn, work for twelve hours straight, carry a huge plastic bag on your shoulder, keep your eyes on the ground, pick all the salable ... Read more >

Welcome to Mumbai

INDIA | Mon, 29 Dec 2014 | By mlodius | Views [342] | Comments [2]

Monday, 29 December, 2014 On today's agenda: sleep this morning, then shopping in Mumbai.   I think I'm awake because the sun is shining. Or maybe because it just feels different here. And there is definitely a bird of some sort dwelling ... Read more >

India 2014 - Mumbai

INDIA | Sun, 7 Dec 2014 | By megandrob | Views [264]

From Goa, we headed to Mumbai for our final two days in India. All of the people we have met in India, except for one, said that we may as well skip Mumbai because it is really crap. The first thing that hit us about Mumbai was the view from the plane.... Read more >

My first encounter with India was not the best. Around midday, forty-eight hours after I left the Italian grounds, I arrived in Pune. And the problems soon started. Travel is nothing but an inconvenience. There is always enough trouble where ... Read more >

Show me the way to Mumbai

INDIA | Tue, 27 Mar 2012 | By macedonboy | Views [960]

It's week 7 into my tour and I'm flying from Delhi to Mumbai. It felt pretty good to have flown for a change and avoiding the bus/train station madness that usually followed on arrival. Much prose and poetry has been written about the quality of air ... Read more >

Everytime my friend from Germany gets an invitation from me to visit India, she freaks out. In spite of all the news of rock/ pop stars going for India-themed weddings and getting themselves inked in Sanskrit quotes, I think the general traveler is pretty ... Read more >

Keeping Mum-bai

INDIA | Wed, 8 Sep 2010 | By noflyzone | Views [595]

We came prepared for a city that is bursting at the seams, and found relative calm. The streets were wide, the traffic un-jammed and there were even fewer people than we'd seen in many cities - in short, it was a pleasure to be there.  Of course, Mumbai ... Read more >

The final city stop on the grand journey around the world was Mumbai, India formerly known as Bombay. We happen to time this visit with the most powerful monsoon rains the city had seen in a long time. In fact, the high tide that registered the day after ... Read more >
