It was a whole new world for me and a complete eye opener. I can’t put into words how heartbreaking it was to see such young children running around trying to scrape up enough cash for dinner. I’ve always recommended India to people as a holiday destination – you will be hit with the stark reality of life, of how incredible lucky you really are. I can’t help but think why though? Why am I so lucky and this innocent child not? Its an upsetting question to ask oneself and I felt very helpless this trip.
Nonetheless I also saw the beauty of India and was bowled away. Nature blooms and the architecture shone like jewels on the landscape. I was taken aback by the beauty and detail in the monuments – the Moghuls were definitely lavish with their money. The Taj Mahal was out of this world – it didn’t even seem real. That mass of white marble, shaped into a perfectly symmetrical monument – I felt like I was in a photo. Even while walking on it I felt like I wasn’t really there. You feel overwhelmed when you listen to the story and how much detail has gone into it – architecture nowadays pales in comparison. The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building? So what. It looks like an overgrown needle – that’s it. Amber Fort, Agra Fort, Taj Mahal, Wind Palace etc made me realise how talented humans really are.
I could go on for days talking about my trip but I wouldn’t want to bore you all! So here are the pics, hope you all enjoy.
Kingdom of Dreams…
