Not going to lie.. when I first committed to the India trip, I had my fair share of concerns and questions. It's definitely out of my comfort zone (Still can't believe I walked barefoot through the streets of India.. and there was a rat underneath my bed.), and I started to question whether I had made the right decision. (Definitely couldn't have done this without the team, shoutouts & mad love to you all!) But I went into this with no expectations, and an open heart. I wanted to soak in every detail and aspect of the trip in. And I can gladly say that I don't regret one bit of it.
India is pure chaos. But.. the irony is that there is some sort of order in the mist of all that chaos. I don’t think I’ve ever heard that much honking in my lifetime, or seen bicycles, trishaws, cars, motorbikes, dogs, camels, cows and boars on the same street. Ever. Yes, it’s that crazy. But in some weird way, it works. India wouldn’t quite be the same without it.
It's also such a wonderful and beautiful country. I love India. From the food, to the people, to the culture.. It's awesome. Sure, every country has its flaws.. but I don't think I've ever been this touched by a group of people in any country. The people there are simply amazing. The children especially. They're young, hopeful and fearless. If there's anything the people there have taught me during this trip.. it'd have to be resilience and strength. They're inspiring. I guess I can now say that India will always have a special place in my heart. Anyways, I shall leave you guys with a load of photos for now. I'll be blogging about the experience more in detail next time! (And a ton more photos too!) Here's a glimpse of my trip through my lens. Hope you enjoy it :)
