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 afterward.
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.
