India’s official tourist slogan is ‘Incredible India.’ Although I agree that India is ‘incredible’ it is in my opinion more ‘indescribable’ than anything else. For those who don’t know, India is my favourite country I’ve ever visited as a backpacker. It’s incredible diversity was a full on assault to my senses. I know many other backpacker/travellers feel the same way I do. I’ve met individuals who have spent months/years based in India and feel as though they’ve only scratched the surface of possibilities while traveling across India by train. It’s a country, that in my opinion, never quite leaves one fully satisfied or satiated. There is always something more to see or do. The following is a photo essay showcasing the smiles of India:
I’ll never forget this little girl. I met her on a horseback riding tour just outside of Udaipur. People who are so warm and genuine living humble conditions inspire me. Travel photo from Rajasthan, India.
This group of cute children loved trying on my prescription sun glasses and sharing a laugh as I took their photo. It was a fun moment I’ll never forget. The interesting thing about sunglasses is that I lost them a few weeks later while taking a train ride. A gust of wind blew them off the side of the window all of a sudden.
