*MINI ANNOUNCEMENT* - guys, we are going to try to add a bit more context to our posts so they can be informative and hopefully act as more of a guidebook for you guys. What are your thoughts? The picture you see on your timeline is often only a small fraction (usually best bit) of the experience and therefore might not be all that helpful in planning an adventure.
This picture of The Taj Mahal is a great example of this. Although this moment was indeed a magical, awe inspiring experience, the picture doesn’t tell the whole story.
The Taj is located 4 hours south of Delhi in the city of Agra. Now Agra is a particularly loud, noisy and dirty city and of the 24 hours we spent there we enjoyed just two... and they were spent admiring this magical building. Our advice for those planning the trip is be prepared for the mayhem! Wake up early and get there for sunrise that way you will minimise crowd battling. If you are travelling on a budget you are going to have to be prepared to work for your bucket list moment... it is not all roses but definitely worth it!
