India

I must gush. I just got back from a two-week trip to India with my dad to see family and be a bit of tourist.  I had not been since I was a little kid; crazy huh? I was to have gone during Christmas break my freshman year of college but ended up having foot surgery instead.  Believe me, it was not a good trade.

I have not done any travel outside of the US as an adult and it has been long overdue. I have forever said I wanted to go here or there, but have I? Not til now. I can safely say that I have been bitten by the travel bug.  India was awesome. I had an absolutely fantastic two weeks and want to go back as soon as I can.  At one point, my Uncle made a joke about my moving to Chandigarh.  Hmm, might have to give that one some more thought.

Why did I love it so much?  It’s not an easy answer in some ways.  But the simplest and most descriptive way I can describe my time there was that I felt very at home there.  Of course, my being half-Indian may have something to do with it, as I truly felt like I was in food heaven every single day. Other than one dinner in which I had some chicken, I ate vegetarian throughout and loved every minute of it. I would prefer to eat that way now – if only I could cook that well or had the desire to cook at all.

Or maybe it was being with my dad and uncle for the entire trip while also staying with various family members.  It’s a multi-generational world there and it’s great! You never feel alone but you can be alone if you want.  My dad thinks blood is thicker than water and although I still disagree with this, I can now more fully see his perspective.

Or maybe it was seeing the country in all its glory. It is a beautiful country and found myself loving just about everywhere we went and we went to quite a few places.
