We’ve officially been in India for a grand total of thirteen days. I can’t believe that we haven’t even traveled the country for a full two weeks yet. It seems like it was a lifetime ago that our plane touched down in Mumbai at three in the morning. We’ve seen, eaten, and experienced so much since then. Who knows what the following two weeks will hold.
Before we left for India we skyped with our good friend Brock, from Backpack With Brock. He spent two months living in India and was extremely helpful in giving us tips and advice for this exquisite country. The one thing he kept telling us was that we needed to accept the fact that things just wouldn’t make sense. The sooner we became accustomed to this fact, the easier and more fun our trip would be.
Friends, I can’t tell you just how right he was. The one word I would use to describe India would be bamboozling. Is that even a real word? If not, I can’t think of another word that could possibly describe this country. I’m constantly perplexed at even the smallest of things here. There are cows, monkeys, boars, and dogs that aimlessly roam the streets, acquiring tickets to anything requires you to navigate a maze of confusion, and nice hotel rooms can be found for under five dollars a night.
That being said, India is one hell of a place.
Our apologies for not posting as often. The internet here is one shady lady and we never know when we’ll come across decent wi-fi. We have been able to get a few videos uploaded though. Take a sneak peek at what makes India so incredible. You can also follow the twitter hashtag #traveltheworld4less to stay up to date on our crazy adventures.
