Incredible India

Who remembers my India feed back in December? That feels like forever ago and I’ve been wanting to share more photos since the day I got back. But, life got in the way real bad over the past few months and I didn’t get around to posting on the blog at all. Today happens to be the day that India celebrates 70 years of Independence, so I figured it’s the best time to share photos from the 5 cities I visited.

My hubby and I took a month off work and decided to spend not only a great amount of time with our families, but also ample time discovering our birth cities as well as a few other beautiful destinations in India. We began in Bombay (my birth city), made our way to Aurangabad where I grew up, then a few cities in Rajasthan (his birth place), and finally, Delhi which is where he grew up. Both of us left India at a young age, and even though we visited frequently since, we didn’t have a chance to explore our country the way we did in December. Enjoy this photo diary, as I take you through the views and culture of Incredible India.
