EPoP 057: Destination Diaries- India

Posted By Trav


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.

    Hey there!

    I’m thinking about going to India, and I loved your description of the personal driver service. Who did you use?

    Did you go through a certain agency or company to do the desert camel excursion?

    Any specific details would be appreciated!

    1. Trav says:

      @Meagan- Yes, we hired a personal driver, but the service we went through I wouldn’t specifically recommend. I forget how we found it, but just through Googling. I’d recommend going to India Mike, as it’s a great resource and people there can probably give you some good advice.

        Thank you so much! I’m listening to your podcast as I type this. I love it…keep them coming! (PS- destination diaries are SO AWESOME!)
