Travel Fantasy: India

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

I've been having a bit of a winter blues lately as we got some fresh snow today and it's been freezing (like) forever. So I've been swooning over Ashley's photos she and her husband, Aron took while on vacation in India. Looking at them makes me want to hop on a plane right now. Wouldn't you love to discover all those colourful spices, take a train ride to Mumbai and spend hours looking through local markets? Aren't their photos amazing? xoxo

P.S.Here is a random fun fact: Did you know that India has the most post offices in the world?

Two Things: If you have not been to BigBangStudio blog - go there. The blogger and her husband live in India while she is working on a year-long painting project. Her photographs and posts are poetic and amazing:

If you haven't seen The Darjeeling Limited yet, DO IT. The Hubs and I caught it this weekend (we're WAY behind on movies, clearly) and I. Loved. It.

Strangely, with all this talk of India, my word verification? SWEEDS. Go figure.

The end.
Merci,
Shannan

you should go, it's just as amazing as you think it will be! (though the trains can be a little uncomfortable :)
it's one of those places you can't get out of your head and want to go back to again and again.
