you can read it hereI’ve always dreamt of travelling to India.
Finally, one day, I decided to visit to Rajasthan with a friend of mine. We travelled from Paris to New Dehli and we wandered across Rajasthan for almost two weeks.
Let me just spend some words about the airline. Qatar Airways. Just the best. It feels like travelling on your on own couch 🙂
My fascination for India began with an Indian Philosophy course I took during University, which led me to read many books and novels about India, discovering its magic and mistery with Salman Rushdie (Midnight’s Children – so wonderful!), Arundhati Roy, Rohinton Mistry, etc.
When I moved to Paris, the city where everything is possible, I started an Hindi course. Oh, the magic of the sanskrit! Those wonderful, spiritual sounds… The esthethics of the letters… I just fell in love with it.
Here are some of the pictures I took during my journey in Rajasthan. If you want to ask any questions about it, feel free to write me a message or leave a comment! Enjoy 🙂 Namaste
