India 🔒

My journey started in crazy Mumbai. I then went to Goa where I met Chris and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. A visit to Dehli was mandatory because of the nearby Taj Mahal and the Holi festival. The trip ended in Varanasi - a truly Indian place. I then moved on to Nepal via Gorakhpur and Sunauli.
