Hello everyone, I am in Delhi. It's a really funny story. My flight got cancelled today so I took an 8 hour taxi ride through the crazy streets of India with these 2 lovely American people. The ride nearly made me sick and my head was pounding from the beeping!!! I'm not sure if you are booking any flights but if you are don't book with Kingfisher because they are letting people pay for flights online and then and then they are cancelling 90% of all their flights at the last min without any refunds. I am having such a great time despite all of this and I am really practicing patience and the true "yoga" of life. Johnnie rang me yesterday and I was so excited to speak with him. I am heading to the ... read more

Well day 2 in Delhi started early after a good nights sleep well almost a good nights sleep, as the dogs in the street woke me as they were having a scrap on the way back from the club. I walked down the main bazaar the beat time early in the morn less hassle from ricky drivers and anyone else for that matter. Over the footbridge at NDLS Delhi main railway station and then pick up a rickshaw from there (the ones on the main bazaar like to stay that side sometimes) to the Red Fort. 20 Rupees for an Indian and 300 for me, they like to make money out of their historic sites. The Red Fort is a big site and as I found out later more impressive from the outside then in. The ... read more

Hei alle sammen! Nå har vi snart vært borte i ein måned alt! Og det syns vi igrunn har gått veldig fort, selv om hjemlengselen av og til har vært der, og tankene har gått tilbake til Norge og brunost og kneip og alle andre godsaker. (Oooog selvfølgelig familie og venner. ) Men begynner faktisk å vende oss til maten her nede i India nå; Tikka masala, butter chicken, roti, naan, paneer og daal. Og smaksløkene våre har virkelig fått noe å bryne seg på! Men det er bare spennende! Og det er vel egentlig det som er stikkordet for dette landet; SPENNENDE! Alt er så annerledes, og i starten ble det veldig mange inntrykk på en gang. Men nå har vi vel lært at man må stenge noen av dem ute for å nyte ting ... read more

Heute wollten wir uns den Teil der Stadt ansehen, der als New Delhi bekannt ist. Laut Reiseführer moderner und pompöser als Old Delhi, mit Shoppingcentern, Business- und Botschaftsviertel und schöner Kolonialarchitektur. Aber zuerst wollten wir uns am offiziellen Touristenbüro am Connaught Place einen ordentliche Stadtplan besorgen. In der Nähe fielen wir jedoch direkt auf einen Schlepper rein ( Köderspruch: Miss you look like Indian Movie Star...is klaaar), der uns eine ultra günstige Rikscha aushandelte, die uns dorthin bringen sollte. Leider gibt es gefühlte 100 "Official Tourist Office" rund um den Connaught Place. Kurz darauf saßen wir in einem "Official Tourist Office" wo es zwar auch eine free map gab, man uns aber noch diverse andere Sachen und einen illegalen Geldwechsel anbot. Neeeein danke. Als wir wieder rauskamen stand da immernoch unser Fahrer und versicherte ... read more

Hey everyone! I'm in Rishekesh. It's such an amazing place! The journey to get here was an interesting one. When I finally got to Dehra Dun I was picked up by a taxi (organised by the Ashram) and was charged a very exensive fare and on top of this they charged me for the trouble they had gone to to pick me up the day before when I was still in Delhi. I figure that nothing else can go against me for a while. Now that i am here nothing is troubling me. It is the most beautiful place. Beautiful people, the Ganga and amazing Yoga and meditation classes. I have made 2 really beautiful friends from Brazil and I have been hanging out with them the last few days. Renata is from Rio and Louis ... read more

Hei – og velkommen til galskapens land, nemlig India. Etter å ha vært her vèl ei uke nå kan vi med hånda på hjertet si at dette landet er sprøtt, rart, vilt, merkelig, crazy og så langt vekk fra livet vårt i Norge som man kan komme. India slutter aldri å sjokkere. Elefanter, kameler, kuer og apekatter. Alle lever de side om side med oss. De er ute på veiene og inne i byene. Trafikken er et kapittel for seg selv. Det finnes absolutt ingen trafikkregler, hvertfall ingen som trenger å overholdes. Her er det lov å sitte 5 stk. på en og samme scooter. Ja, du leste riktig. Det er også lov å drikke alkohol mens man kjører. Setebeltet har vi ikke brukt den siste uka. Ikke fordi vi ikke har hatt lyst. ... read more

Namaste! Etter en lang flytur fra Kenya ankom vi til slutt hovedstaden New Dehli i India. Her er det virkelig store motsetninger i forhold til Norge. Alt er annerledes! Trafikken er et rent kaos. De tuter i hytt og pine og tålmodighet er hvertfall et ukjent ord for dem.. Vi ser stadig nye ting som sjokkerer oss, faktisk mer enn i Afrika. De siste to dagene har vi hatt med oss en privastjåfør som har kjørt rundt og guidet oss på en noe gebrokken engelsk gjennom byen. Og vi har fått med oss mye! Sjåføren vår(hvis navn er ukjent - eller rettere sagt glemt) går rundt med en turban fordi han tilhører en retning innenfor hinduismen som kalles Sikh. Snodige greier! Vi besøkte også et tempel som sikhene gikk til for å be. Skoene måtte vi ... read more

Hi everyone, I have had a hectic day today. I arrived for my flight at Kathmandu today at 8am and eventually arrived at 4pm (and it's a 2 hour flight / delays because of the weather).I missed my connecting flight to Dehra Dun this afternoon because of these delays. I am currently staying in the Delhi airport hotel and $240 Australian to get my flight sorted for tomorrow and pay for accommodation. I will be arriving at Dehra Dun at around 9am (fingers crossed) and then travel down to Rishikesh by around lunch time. What an interesting day I have had. I am staying in the most expensive hotel I have ever been in!!! They have special soaps, shampoos etc. A big contrast to what I have been use to. I even used the fitness centre ... read more
