So as promised here’s some of the photos I took while I was India that I wanted to share. It was not only my first time travelling abroad, but I also travelled alone from England to India where my fiancé lives. However it was completely worth it.
I went back in April and this first pic is what my dad took off my plane taxing for take off at home in England. Although that’s a bit obvious from the colour of the sky lol.
The flights were long. The first flight to Dubai was about 7 hours long and then the second flight was around another 4 hours. I don’t even know how long I was awake for on the first day lol. I was at the airport well before mid day at home and got to India about 8:30 am the next day. I was too excited to sleep on the plane and it seemed too late to sleep after arriving so kinda just waited until it was night time again lol. The time zone difference is currently 4:30 hours.
The day I arrived was actually our 7th anniversary of being in a relationship. It’s a bit sad to think about how in 7 years we have spent just under a month in total physically in each others presence, even though we make sure we spend some time together daily via technology.
I had a really great time while there and it was interesting to be in a place so different from home. I remember how happy my fiancé looked when he saw me walking out of the airport. It’s a shame it was all over so fast.
The thing that I struggled with the most though was the heat lol. Bear in mind I’m from England where summer is likely to be cold and rainy day. I can quite happily sit in my bedroom when it’s about 9°C with all the windows open and 1 layer of clothing on. So to go from that to temperatures more like 40°C was quite difficult for me.
This picture was taken at a zoo we went to one of the days. I included this because it’s the scariest looking creature I’ve ever seen lol. It’s called a Gharial.
On a couple of the days we went to the beach in the evening time so that it was a little cooler. I took this picture of the moon on one of those days. It was quite pretty to have the moon coming up above the sea and to then to a 180° turn and see the sun setting at the same time.
We did actually take at least 350 – 400 of pictures. Anything that looked interesting we just had to get a picture of lol. These are just a few of the best ones across the 2 weeks I was there.
