You will learn new ways of living. As I told my children, traveling is the school of life. You can’t come back the same; you meet new friends, you discover new food, you see amazing sights and you mingle with the locals. Locals are the best part of the journey because they love to…

New Delhi Car Rental With Driver

Delhi Car Rental With Driver or Should I use Public Transport to Travel in Rajasthan There is certainly a lot to see in Rajasthan.  This state is large and the roads aren’t in the best condition, even if it is the most visited part of India.

Rail is a good solution if you have time, but you will need at least 3 weeks to visit Rajasthan by train. For us, this wasn’t possible because we had 2 weeks to travel around Rajasthan. We didn’t want to be…

With a travel itinerary like this there is no time to discover the locals, no time to discover traditional restaurants…
