India – Introduction

India

Welcome in May on my blog! 🙂
This month is going to be all about India.
Have you ever been to India or this country is on your list, or maybe you don’t want to go there?
Let me know your impressions or imaginations. I’m curious what you think, because people often have very strong feelings about India – love it or hate it; think it’s a colorful place or very dirty; etc.
I’ll try to show you in May (relatively) objective pictures taken in India. Stay tuned! 🙂

  1. My wife and I spent ten days in Kerala last October (https://wp.me/p6t41V-3hF et seq), and we are planning to spend a week in the north (Golden Triangle tour) at the end of this year; this time, father-in-law will be with us.
    We were looked after superbly by our driver/guide, and he ensured that, as well as the luxury hoteld etc, we saw enough of the real Kerala to give us an appreciation of its diversity: of religions; cultures; colours; smells; tastes; sounds and, yes, circumstances.
    Words I would use to describe the country, based on our experience, would include: diverse, united, contradictory, friendly, helpful and much poverty – and that was just before the large denomination notes were withdrawn.

    1. Thank you for your impressions!
      I haven’t been to Kerala yet; but based on pictures I saw, it looks very touristic, am I right? Also very diverse and beautiful.
      India is a large country, so everyone can find there something nice.
      I hope you’ll like my photo-impressions in May. 🙂

  2. Hi Maja.
    India is our neighbour (I am from Nepal) but since I left Nepal for Europe quite young, I haven’t had much chance to visit big Indians cities and monuments. I have however been to Darjeeling (which used to be a part of Nepal before) and surrounding areas. It felt almost like Nepal because people speak Nepali there. I’d like to go to Mumbai or Delhi one day for food and maybe to the South for nature. 🙂 Excited to read about your impressions of India!

    1. When I was in Nepal, I had the impression that I’m in “modern India” 😉
      I have to say, I like Nepal (and food) much more than India 🙂

      I hope you’ll like my posts and wish you to visit India one day! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much! I was hoping to hear from you this month. 🙂 Well, I was also a bit scared, because I’m showing “all” faces of India, a beautiful one and a poor one as well – I think it’s an honest approach.
      Anyway, I hope you’ll like my posts. 🙂

  3. My apologies.I may not be a regular visitor but I do enjoy your posts.
    And I prefer the honest,non judgemental views.Looking forward to the rest.Cheers and hugs to the young one.

  4. India has been on my bucket list for a long time. The country fascinates me and I do see it as particularly colourful. However, I recognise that dirt and squalor will play a big part in many areas and poverty will be evident, too. But I suppose the same can be said for many areas of the world. Looking forward to a look at your posts on India. 🙂
