6 Months Ago We Quit Our Jobs To Travel The World

ADVERTISEMENT

Carrying a backpack for 6 months, we have spent quality time in 5 amazing countries. We have been in crazy directions, spending anything from 6 hours to 40 hours to get to the next destination!

There is so much to see in this world that no amount of time is enough. But we are trying to make do with what we have. So, get ready to go through our photo journey.

    The hills, water and low clouds of Hong Kong reminded us of scenery from Kung Fu Panda!

    We then got to Sri Lanka and ate lots of kottu. One lucky day we encountered over 50 elephants

    Right place at the right time – Kandy Perahera Festival, Sri Lanka

    ADVERTISEMENT

    First thing we did in India was visit Taj Mahal. It stands elegantly under the smoky sky representing love

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Flying south to Kerela, we enjoyed the food. Especially the meals served on banana leaves!

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Oh, that peaceful time on the houseboat in the backwaters of Kerala. 24 hours was too short

    We got to a small village Hampi, Karnataka. The hills, massive boulders, coconut trees, small farms and the ruins of the 16th century kingdom just WOWed us

    ADVERTISEMENT

    We moved west and ended up doing long scooty rides in Goa discovering small towns

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Flying to Varanasi, we were in the heart of Spiritual India. Attending the evening aarti by Ganga, we crawled right back to our incredible culture

    ADVERTISEMENT

    It was soon time to discover the undiscovered North East India. Getting to Meghalaya, we came across the bluest lake we had seen, Umiam Lake

    Driving along hills near Cherrapunji we got to the tallest waterfall in India, Nohkalikai Falls. The turquoise blue water pool at the bottom was inviting

    ADVERTISEMENT

    At 4AM we were on the Tiger Hill in Darjeeling, ready for sunrise. After 1.5 hours wait, the sun rays reflected upon Kanchenjunga, making the snow covered peak appear gold!

    ADVERTISEMENT

    We headed to Tsomgo Lake in Sikkim, a beautiful water body sitting at over 12,000 feet, right in the middle of mountains

    ADVERTISEMENT

    On a hill in Darjeeling, is a very unique Hindu & Buddhist temple, Mahakal Temple

    ADVERTISEMENT

    We attended the biggest festival in Kolkata, Durga Pooja. The energy in the city during these 6 auspicious days is just insane!

    Hawa Mahal, Jaipur, is such an spectacular building right in the middle of a busy street

    ADVERTISEMENT

    The view from Jaigarh Fort of Amer Fort, hills around, man made lake, small villages and fort walls running all across is just picturesque

    Old town of Jodhpur could be called 50 shades of blue!

    ADVERTISEMENT

    We went back to 100 years ago by spending a day with camel herders and the night in a mud hut without electricity and running water

    Udaipur, Land of Lakes, has preserved it’s Lake Palace really well. No visit to this picturesque city is complete without a boat ride in Lake Pichola

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Chittorgarh Fort was home to the Mewar Kingdom for over 9 centuries but now it just stands as beautiful ruins on top of a 500 feet high hill

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Visiting Golden Temple in Amritsar was different. The echoing Gurbani (words of Sikh Gurus) creates a peaceful ambience within the premises

    Once at the Salt Panes in Gujarat we were speechless. We couldn’t tell where the land met the sky, everything was just white

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Traveling for 39 hours from West India, we got to East Coast USA, New York

    A night walk on Manhattan Bridge is a must, not only for the city lights but the number of flights in air

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Madison Square Gardens, WOW! Definitely worth the money

    Everyone goes to Empire State Building, but we did Top of The Rock

    ADVERTISEMENT

    From East Coast USA, we flew to Alaska! The magical green sky made us realise how small we are in the spectrum of universe

    14 hours of scary drive on icy roads got us to the Arctic Cirle. Have you been there?

    ADVERTISEMENT

    From Arctic Circle, we flew down to the equator, Colombia! And, we fell in love

    The walls of Cartagena Old City still stand firm protecting the old heritage of the city

    ADVERTISEMENT

    We danced and partied with the locals in a sleepy town in the middle of no where – Mompox

    Medellin, previously home to Pablo Escobar, has an enthusiastic vibe. The cable car was our favourite!

    ADVERTISEMENT

    The stadium in Medellin was packed and everyone was chanting to the rhythm of the band. It was like being in the middle of a party!

    ADVERTISEMENT

    740 steps later, we were on top of The Rock enjoying the 360 view of the biggest man made lake in Colombia

    That’s us!
