We spent just shy of three months in India and while it wasn’t our favorite place that we have visited on the planet, there were some bright moments during our time on the subcontinent. We made some great new friends, met some inspiring people and saw some amazing sites.
Here are the 5 things that we enjoyed in India in order of when they occurred.
Yoga in Goa - Who would have thought that we would find a genuine Swami in Patnem Beach Goa. Swami Shiva Nand Jee taught us the way of the yogi while whipping our bodies into shape. We listened to his wisdom and enjoyed our hour long talks after class. He made us a believer. There is something greater out there and with discipline and focus, we can all tap into a higher power and meaning of the universe.
Exploring Hampi - The ruins of Hampi exceed our expectations. Not only were the ruins a display of well preserved temples sprawled over acres of land. People actually still live, breathe and work among them as they have done for centuries. The landscape is littered with large rocky formations intermingled with jungle, rolling hills and farmland. It is simply beautiful.
