India Travel Journal – Delhi Travel Stories
Our trip to India started in New Delhi. We had planned to sleep for the day but instead, it turned into an action-packed day! We didn't know how we would feel after a 14-hour flight, but were so glad that we started our trip like this!
Our flight took us over the north pole! We were kept in the dark, arriving in India in the early hours of the morning. As the sun came up, we started our day and avoided the crowds.
Jumping into Our India Trip
The Red Fort in Delhi was a great way to start off our exploring. We strongly recommend the Red Fort audio tour and the museum within.
Imagine the splendor of the Indian Empire, opulent jewels, silks, and amazing rugs. People adorned in the most beautiful outfits, fountains trickling. The rich smell of flowers and incense drifting on a warm breeze. After that, imagine it all taking place in the Red Fort.
Additionally, you should pop across the street when you are done wandering through time. Don't hesitate, just go. Tell the people hassling you outside the fort to “Stop” (“bas”, pronounced “bus” means “enough”. Remember that for vendors and food). You'll find a maze of shops, food vendors and throngs of people.
You could spend hours wandering around, so drop a pin on your phone so you can make it back and get your bearings!

We (Raj & Holley plus our friend Pam) traveled to India for a month!
Let's be clear: India is huge and each area is quite unique, so a month in India can only cover so many places. It was an action-packed tour of North India, and we'd love to spend another few months there to see the south at a calmer pace.
We were extremely lucky to have the experiences that we did. Our experiences, or at least our India travel impressions, were unique to us and we thought an India travel vlog would be a great way to share them.
