The start of my trip to India was not ideal as not only did I have a severe head cold but flying into Delhi during Diwali meant that air pollutants were at an all time high and the air quality had been put into the ‘hazardous” category…seeing and breathing in the thick smog with the sun looking burnt out in the sky reminded me of the post apocalyptic cities you see in Sci-fi movies… Yet despite all of this there was a vibrancy about the people going about their everyday lives. Even the excessive tooting of car horns seemed to be done with positivity and not aggression.
Here are some of my shots taken around old Delhi and various other villages on my travels.

.. I was not confident one hour before leaving for this solo trip. After all, it was going to be my first solo trip. But I gathered all my courage and started packing my bag. My bus was in an hour and in all the rush, I forgot to carry my jackets with me.
Before catching my bus from Delhi to Himachal, I went to my friend's house to borrow a jacket because it was going to be very cold in the mountains. This was one of my best trips for sure.
Things I learned from this trip -
Pack your bags and hit the road. Don't think for tomorrow, just think for today
You may not find answers but you will surely come with questions that lead you to self-discovery. Your time on this planet is limited. Your quest to explore is not. You make the world and the world makes you. So while you can, take the leap.
