A Trip Through India

A Trip Through India

By: Alicia Johnson of That’s A Pretty Picture Photography

“My husband lived in India for two years and I’ve always had a desire to go and visit the places he lived and experience India. My brother is a travel guru and approached us about going with them to India. They’ve traveled much of Europe and wanted something a little more adventurous. We arrived in Delhi late at night and immediately left with a driver who took us to Agra. We were able to see “The Taj” at sunrise and it was beautiful! We were so happy we squeezed that into our trip, as we had considered cutting it to do some of the more off the path activities. It was everything we expected and more! After Agra we visited Jaipur, Hyderabad, Aurangabad, and Mumbai. We loved the rural areas and were often asked to be photographed. India was everything we expected it to be – an adventure! It was loud, colorful, exciting, a feast for the eyes, and so much food for thought. One recommendation to travels – choose nice hotels. It was fun to experience the chaos of India but I needed a calm, clean, quiet hotel room to unwind and process the experiences at the end of each day. At one point we listed the different modes of transportation we used throughout the trip. It included: plane, train, car, bus, auto rickshaw, elephant, camel, motor bike, motorcycle, golf cart, and a sea plane boat!”

  • […] This was part 2 of our vacation, as we spent the first week in India and then 4 days laying on a beach in the Maldives. It was the perfect balance – adventure and then relaxation. We arrived late at night so we couldn’t get a good sense of our surroundings. When I woke up the next morning and looked outside my jaw hit the ground! Really words don’t do it justice to how great it was. This resort is one of the top 100 in the world – it was truly paradise! It was far better than I even imagined! We stayed in the Hyatt on Hadahaa. There are only about 45 units on the whole island, which you can walk around in 20 minutes. Some are water front private villas, while others are over-water bungalows. We stayed in each type of unit and both were fabulous! It was amazing to have our own private villa where we could relax and then jump in the water and snorkle when we pleased. […]
