26 hours on an Indian sleeper train later: Goa. (Okay, it took another day and a half driving from Bombay to Goa but still).

If wanting to see where the worlds of humans and the Gods collide is on your bucket list, Naragot is your place. It’s worth risking frostbite to see the sunrise over Everest and the Himalayas. It’s brutally cold, especially at the hilltop viewpoint that’s unprotected from wind chill. But if you manage to make it up … More Did We Ever-rest?

The beauty of the Rajasthani desert is difficult to put into words. It’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen, and the simplicity of it makes it that much more exquisite. But with our one month visa nagging at us, it was time to go. Two girls at the local lassi shop said we should … More Our First Breakdown
