India is an assault on the senses, a country of amazing colors, contrasts, and mostly, confusion.
And a country that can’t begin to understand until after you’ve been there, and one you won’t fully understand afterwards.
In today’s episode, Trav and Heather break down their three week adventure through India, telling you their favorite places they stayed, ate, and experiences they had.
From galloping on camels through a driving sandstorm to riding in a flashing neon tuk-tuk with a driver swigging vodka and trying to sell them textiles, these stories are ones that could only happen in India.
