“All you white people get off the bus!” This is how we awoke when arriving in Hampi around 7am. I rubbed my eyes and sighed as I lifted my heavy MEC pack and nearly ripping Jansport bag off the bus. The sun had just risen and it was already so hot. Although there is no...

I don’t know how many cities are worth a 24-hour train ride in sleeper class in 42-degree weather with no air conditioning but Mumbai is definitely one of them. Riding along in the back of a cab heading south along Marine Drive with the Arabian sea breeze sweeping my s...

Lea and I sat upon the marble wall fencing in the Birla Mandir from its gorgeously kept gardens below, looking out at the busy streets of Jaipur. Nightfall in big cities is always such a rush; I’ve almost forgotten the feeling after being in the village for so long. Th...

Depending on how you read that could say a lot about the next big step you need to take this year. A middle-aged, philosophy teacher with mediocre English wrote this down and presented it to me and two fellow Canadian I have been travelling with for the past couple day...

Jaisalmer is a magical place, which is why our hostel, Mystic Jaisalmer, was oh so appropriate. Our group of eleven arrived around 5 am rubbing our eyes as we walked off the bus, into tuk-tuks and through the gate of the hostel. The young man working reception led us t...

Imagine living with me. Dealing with all my hilarious (and ridiculous) habits, clumsiness, silly humor and non-stop energy. That’s what it is like living with Ali. I’m living with my identical, 5 foot, twin. The only downside is no one stops you from eating too many co...

Being white and living in Gajner is like being a celebrity. The village hasn’t set eyes on many foreigners. Even those who stay at the Gajner Palace Hotel mostly just come and go between Bikaner and the hotel rarely setting foot in any of the three streets that the vil...

New Delhi is unlike any city in the world. Although I have yet to visit Mumbai, I’ve met many people who have travelled to both and they agree that Delhi is truly the most chaotic and craziest city they have ever been too. There is no such thing as silence and the traf...
