One day you open your eyes and you find yourself in Wonderland. Everything is different than what you’re use to. All your senses, sight, smell, taste and hearing are greatly disturbed from deep within. On every corner some other scene, on every step a new smile. The inhabitants of this country will warm up your soul and will teach you the most important lesson about life: Happiness is not the result of the materialistic accomplishments.
In this country those people that wear the shabby clothes are the ones with the most glistering smile. In this country the hospitality and the conviviality will melt your heart. In this country even bananas are sold filled up with chili.
The country of colors, contrasts, festivals, film, rich history and arranged marriages.
Welcome to India.

My dream to be invited to an Indian wedding came true! I have never before experienced such a huge hospitality, kindness and friendliness!
74% of young Indians prefer an arranged marriage over a free-choice one. It was one of them.
Only about 1 in 100 marriages in India end in divorce, one of the lowest rates in the world!
Agra Fort is the former imperial residence of the Mughal Dynasty.
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
Jaisalmer is my favourite city in Rajastan. There is contrast everywhere. Time ago, it was rich city, and now in beautiful palaces live poor families.
Climbing up on the bed in museum even it is forbidden?! DONE. 🙂

Yes, it was my only luggage for my long-term trip around the world. After a while, you realize you have a house full of stuff you don’t need. This minimalistic way of traveling taught me to separate myself from material things and enjoy simple life. You shoud try it! (The photo from Goa)
