48: India is Incredible (2 Months Traveling 7+ Cities)

January 31, 2019
Having the chance to spend two months traveling to a few different cities in India is something we will always remember about our journey around the world. Seeing the Taj Mahal outside of Delhi, celebrating two weddings, and exploring the wonder of Kerala are all experiences that will stay with us forever. Our time in Indore, Nagpur, and Bhopal were filled with excitement as they are non-traditional tourist location, but the families that took us in were kind, welcoming, and fantastic cooks. We enjoyed the bright colors and loud fireworks of Diwali and loved the amazing food from both north and south India. We took airplanes, buses, tuk-tuks, and trains, and spent time on longboats to canoe around the backwaters. From the Golden Temple to tea plantations, we enjoyed every minute of our journey through Incredible India! Main Topics Covered: Delhi and Agra Hyderabad - Traditional Wedding Nagpur, Indore, Bhopal Kerala Amritsar and Jammu Links Mentioned in the Episode: Check out all of the PARTNERS that have made our lives easy while traveling the world.  This was Matt’s third trip back to India and Nikki’s second. Agra and the Taj Mahal are as gorgeous as you see in all of the travel photos. The traveling India couple we met (Sidhika & Ritesh) can be found on Instagram at @sidritwanders.  Being in Hyderabad for the wedding is something we will never forget. If you want to read the detail account on an Indian Wedding (Through Our American Eyes) dive into that post.  Being in Indore for the Rajwada celebration for preparation of Diwali, the action was vibrant.  I was interviewed by the Regional News Station which brought more attention, selfies, and photos.  Nagpur, Indore, and Bhopal were outside of the typical tourist regions but still a great experience. The Kerala region is gorgeous, memorable, and exciting for many reasons. Here is a thorough list of the Kerala India Travel Guide (11 Epic Things To Do).  This stay on Marari Beach was one of our most favorite in all our travels.  Spending time with the children at Don Bosco will always be something we cherish about our journey.  Be sure to check the holiday calendar for India before you go to make sure there are no major celebrations that will impact your trip.  Sign up for our Newsletter to get the latest tips in Travel and hear about our weekly visits around the world
