tfw you randomly run into your BFFs and their 4-year-old daughter in NYC, and then have dinner with them while they make fun of you the whole time after they find out youโ€™re now a vegetarian ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ—ฝโค๏ธ

#tbt Oh, Rajasthan, youโ€™re freaking beautiful. And yes, this is my basic bitch pose.

Dear India, I freaking love you. Spent the day exploring a few forts and palaces in Jaipur. Oh, also: I wrote a lengthy update about my studies, travels and adventures in Asia this year and when Iโ€™ll be back to golf... mandatory: link in bio.

Cameling through the desert, as one does when in Pushkar. ๐ŸŒต๐Ÿซโ›ฐ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ #rajasthan

India is amazing for the soul. To find serenity in a sometimes overwhelming, confusing and intimidating settings is hella dope ๐Ÿ™Œ #Pushkar #Rajasthan

India, man. More than 1,000 steps up the hill. I feel closer to god (and Buddha). This is the view from atop the hill at the temple dedicated to the Goddess Savitri (Lord Brahmaโ€™s (first) wife. โ›ฐ๐ŸŒ…๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ•‰๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ #Pushkar #Rajasthan #backpackingasia

Happy Janmashtami, festival celebrating the birth of Lord Krishna! So, my friend @nisha_tanwar suggested I go to the Brahma temple, one of five most sacred pilgrimage sites for Hindus, for the โ€œexperience.โ€ That it certainly was! There were swarms of people barefoot all rushing to get into the temple. A guy saw me looking confused and helped me through the crowd and showed me where to put my shoes and bag. Then guided me through the temple and gave me a tour and took me through the prayers. Then he took me to this priest/guru at the lake and I did the whole ceremony thing next to the sacred lake and then donated rupees by putting it on a coconut and saying a prayer. Itโ€™s all about the kids, ya know. I do feel more blissed and blessed, though. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ At the start of the prayer, he went through blessing my family, my country ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ and Obama. Seriously, we stopped to laugh for a moment of understanding and appreciation. God bless America. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’šโ˜ธ๏ธ #harekrishna #brahma #pushkar #holywater #holysite

If Iโ€™ve learned anything in the last eight months of living, studying and traveling in Asia, and meeting wonderful people from all over the world, itโ€™s that I am stronger than Iโ€™ve ever imagined; my heart is pure; and to trust my intuitions. I hope thatโ€™ll be evident in my writings which I hope to share when Iโ€™m ready. For now, Iโ€™m gonna go bhang it up in Pushkar ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’šโœŠ๏ธ

Friday feeling that has me journeying into the weekend on a bumpy 7-hour bus ride to Pushkar, a hippie hub in Rajasthan. Sounds perfect. Canโ€™t wait to try bhaang. I hear Iโ€™m in for a colorful experience. ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ
