India – Day 11 – Gorgeous holy Rishikesh


We were planning to stay two nights at Rishikesh. Actually, we were planning to stay two nights at quite a few places along the way, but we haven’t really followed those plans anywhere, the main reason being thinking we already “get” where we are and wanting to see something else somewhere else. Only problem is, moving around India is both time/energy consuming and it requires a lot of planning in advance, and we weren’t really well prepared for that.

We wondered around holy Rishikesh that day, enjoying the Ganges river gorgeous views…

attending the evening ceremony again, and then… we took off, doing – once again – the mistake of traveling on a night bus to Delhi and then a morning train to Agra. Not the most clever idea, especially since I was with my dad, but at least we were headed to one of the newly declared wonders of the world.
