Memories of India


So far as I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked.
~ Mark Twain

I just returned from an amazing two days spent swimming at the beach and eating delicious food with friends in Laguna Beach. The four of us have all been fortunate enough to travel vast amounts of the globe (at least cumulatively), and we took the opportunity to share some of our travel stories. My own tales largely featured India, so I thought I'd do a little retrospective here. Many of the pictures are culled from my travel blog and/or my Flickr account.

I've spent about three months in India. The first time I went, I was joining my Icelandic friend, Edda, there to model for two months in Mumbai (Bombay) India. The second trip was for the holidays, and was passed in Goa, Hampi, Mumbai, Udaipur, and Jodhpur.

These photos are amazing! Yes, they DO make me want to go visit. So exotic and vastly different from our own comfort-filled world.

Comfort-filled is right-- I guess that's the one thing I need to caution would-be travelers on, that it's definitely a step out of one's comfort zone. It's a dirty, dingy place. However, the extremes there are vast-- you'll see both the most amazing places and some of the most humbling places-- all in the same country.

Wow. Such rich colors! I have to say India just flew its way to the top of my travel list. I'm laying aside my horrific curd experience and replacing the hauntings with your captivating photos ;-) I found out where the intro of the Bourne movie was filmed - Goa. You'll have to tell me how you liked it.
