I recently went for 5 days to New Delhi (and 3.5 days to Vadodara) as part of my holiday in India. We stayed in the Diplomatic Enclave area of Chanakyapuri city district and witnessed the Republic Day parade on 26th January. We are tons of butter chicken!!

Aradhana, Alibag – Revas Rd, Nandai Fata, Agarsure, Maharashtra 402201
I’m currently staying just outside the Maharashtra city of Mumbai, near a place called Alibag. One thing I have noticed about Marathis is they are very proud of their state. It’s very beautiful and there are many contrasts here.

For my trip abroad tomorrow, the first part of India I’ll make contact with is (wait for it…) Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (IATA: BOM, ICAO: VABB), also known by its previous nick of Sahar Int’l Airport. This airport serves the hectic metropolis of Mumbai. I’ll be staying at a country house near Nallasopara, a surburban town outside the city. To give you a flavour of what Mumbai is like, I present to you this foggy GIFwork by Aaron Lopez.

Tomorrow I’ll be going to India on holiday for two weeks. One of the experiences of India everyone is familiar with is its crazy traffic. Drivers seem to have the devil on their shoulder and traffic rules are healthily disregarded. But just sometimes, the pedestrians strike back.

With hindsight… and a very dirty hot tub, Jasmine realised that maybe that big bowl of five-bean chilli was probably not such a good idea.
