This year have been one of my busiest year, (and its still very busy for me) I meet a lot of new people everyday and thats one of the reasons why you haven´t heard from me until now...sorry for that! Right now I´m in India and I have been here since mid november to explore and enjoy both business and the pleasure of being human after a very very busy year with lots of hard work. So I thought it was time for me to take a time out in my life, just to enjoy our wonderful world, outside my daily window and be in the moment of LIFE.
I have already fall in LOVE with the indian people because of their great hospitality and warm love they show me on their indian way of adventure. If you once in your life time have the time to come to India, you should come. They have so much to offer for your heart and soul. India opens your inner heart even if you dont want to open your heart... and then the magic starts to flow throw colors, people, food and their beautiful historical architecture they have here. A lot of the ancient influences comes from the muslim/persian people that have been doing some amazing things over here such as Taj Mahal in Agra. Especially the persian people are famous for their ancient craftwork that I for example didn´t know so much about but its always good to learn something in life... It´s so beautiful over here and It feels that I´m in heaven...
Be inspired as I´m right now on my ongoing trip from my first day when I said goodbuy to my dearest friend Ines at the Copenhagen airport in mid november and I didnt know what to expect or what kind of adventure was waiting for me out there in India... I hope you could enjoy it so much I do it overhere. ;o)
Take Care for now and we keep in touch! and Lots of Love from India
Your Sincerely, Sofia ,0)
Me, not yet knowing what kind of adventure is waiting for me outhere in India. Last goodbye with my dearest friend Ines that followed with to the Copenhagen Airport 6am in the morgning. What a good friend to have, I couldn´t wish for more! Next day I was checking in at the Hotel Clark International, Karol Bagh in Delhi. The hotel is absolutely okej with resaonable prices close to the bargain streets.
My room whas clean and fresh! It´s always good to start with a nice hotel in the beginning of a journey until you know more about the city, the culture and the people. Me, preparing the first day in the hotel rooftoop of my first adventure in Delhi.
My first day in Delhi I decided I want to take a walk to see and feel the people and the Delhi culture but after a while I realised very quicly that the destinent between a block is so huge so I could walk for hours and not coming anywhere so the best thing for me to feel Delhi was to pick up a indian Rickshaw who took me in to the famous Delhi traffic of big caos. But even if it was caos I felt at the same time me so alive of all the things and constrast I saw on my way. So I was totally hooked of Delhis Culture.
After a while I decided me to take a break from all the hectic traffic so I went to the kolonialhotel Imperial and took a té where I enjoyed the silence and the time of being in Delhi.
After my shopping I have to find a internet café because the Internet connection didnt work at all in my hotel so I felt totally handicapped and lost so finally I found in my desperate search of a café, a small basement were I shared the room with a lot of teenage guys that also seems as desperate as me.
Rest of the days in Delhi I was shopping and making saris for myself. I also meet a lots of new people were I was inviting to take both dinners and lunches such as an indian muslim lunch with the shopowner Habib and his crew in Connaught Place at Kashmir Art Gallery. I was also forecasting trends and visiting all kinds of different kind of markets and shopping mall such as Kahn market were I saw a lot of resident foregnier mixed with the middelclass Indian people.
The last day in Delhi I decided I wanted to be a bit more tourist then I been until now so I meet Mr.Noor from the Highland Travels that have a small travelagency in the small backyards of Connaught Place in Delhi. The agency is not easy to find but he is worth it! Becasue he is a very nice guy who arranged my following trip in Delhi for 1-day and the golden triangel in India for 7 days, were I visit Taj Mahal in Agra, the colorful Jaipur, the Holycity Puschka and finally the fairytale town Udaipur, were I fall totally in love with everything that has to do with Udaipur.
