Pilgrims A’Pushin

May 15th-17th, 2017 After our safari, Tracy and I had another delicious meal at Trio and I wanted to take one last walk around Jaisalmer before our bus ride to Pushkar.

You Really Have to Goa!

Apr 18th-26th, 2017 Gokarna is not far from the border separating Karnataka and Goa, and we would only have to take a short train ride in order to reach our first destination in Goa. As luck would have it, our train showed up an hour and a half late (and super packed) and delayed our whole … Continue reading You Really Have to Goa!
