A sneak peek into my India Photography Trip

Having spent the last 5 weeks travelling through India on my India Photography Trip, I have witnessed just how much travel changes your perspective of the world.

Having travelled to India for my India Photography Trip, just shortly after my 2 week trip to Bahrain with the Discover Bahrain program, meant that only a couple of days ago I  had the opportunity to finally post my article on why should you visit Bahrain :  Why-bahrain-is-the-coolest-arab-country-to-visit. So my most sincere apologies for not posting on a more regular basis, which I will do from now on.

Its just that I get so absorbed with the new reality of the country that I visit, the people that I met, the food that I taste, that my whole mind is immersed in this new context, making it very difficult to think about other realities. I have never experience such a rooted connection to the place that I am visiting as I did in India. Everyone says that travel changes your perspective, and that India is probably the most intense place that you will ever visit…Let me say that all of it true…

Being troubled by the answer to the “What defines India?” question, I realized that the answer changed at every second, with every different personal (or animal) encounter, with the sight of temple, the taste of food or by someone telling me a story about one of the sacred books of Hinduism. It is then that I realized that I was to was to define India in one sentence, it would have to be a pretty big sentence, so I wrote “Define India: One Sentence…500 words…” comprising some of the most meaningful experiences, interactions and realities that lived while in my India Photography Trip.

Nevertheless here we are and, while I catch up on my writing I am going to leave you with a few photos of my India Photography Trip, and I’ll let everyone tell the story on their own…

I dedicate my award winning travel writing and photography to the soul and sense of place of the locations I visit, the people I meet and the food I taste.

    • Thanks Milu! India is a very intense experience to say the least and I am sure that you may find travel comfort in other destinations. Nevertheless, if you are a yoga and meditation lover then I would urge you to go to Rishikesh

  • What a coloured world and how beutifuly you’ve pictured it! Thank you, Nelson!

  • I recently stumbled on your blog Nelson but have already spent hours going through all the posts. These pictures are just fabulous! Would have been great to see one here of a traditional Irani Cafe (I only say this as Parsi food is very close to my heart). Let me know the next time you are in India – would love to meet you and introduce you to the food!

    • Hi Prenzen

      Thank you so much for such a candid and heartwarming comment. India stays as my most intense travel experience yet and combining it with the Persian and Arab heritage is just heaven for me. You bet that I will let you know when I will come back to India.
