Photos from our Travels in Northern India
Earlier this week, I was flipping through our travel photos and realized we still have so many photos and stories that have yet to be shared. So, in an effort to rectify our tardy behaviour, we’ve uploaded some photos from our last trip to Northern India.
We hope you like them!

We spent about 5 weeks traveling from Kathmandu, Nepal to Mumbai. The majority of our travels were done via trains and buses, but we did find that flight tickets were quite inexpensive, relatively speaking.
India is a really big country, so if you have a limited amount of time and you want to cover a lot of ground, you’ d be wise to take flights. That said, you can’t leave India without taking at least one long-haul train trip – it’s an experience every visitor to India must complete!
