Some things are just there and whenever I do not wear rings I feel so naked. I can skip ear rings without any problems, but my rings are a big no no, I can not miss them.
During a normal day, I have to wear two rings, if I do not and miss. I get worried that I might have lost the ring/rings, which have happened eariler. Anyways, there are some rings which are for everyday use. Some are in gold and other in silver. Right, now i am in silver mood and only wearing silver rings.
Anyways, this ring is 5-6 years old and bought it in India. I do not now if it was in the south or in the north. One thing is for sure, I did not buy the ring in Pune. Too costly place for tourist things.
In earlier posts have been about my family in India and about my sisters wedding (which I can not attend due to fianl exams). But, she did send some photos from a ritual which they have before the offical preparations for the wedding could start.
My question is why this ritual what is the history behind it, what do they do during the ritual? The only thing I could figure out was the people at the ritual were women from the family. Also, everyone were really beautiful in the sarees. Still what do they do at the ritual? I do know and can even understand from the photos…
Does anyone know? I am so lost!
I reqested some of my friends to send photos from India with the Diwali festival and all I can say is I miss this too much. I really miss being in India with my families. This festival is the best festival in India. With the fireworks, pooja, food and families and friends.
I have no words beside, I wish to be there and get afried of all the fireworks and wondring if India is in war or not.
Let us visit all the historical places
Enjoy the places and study the History
To sit in the sun and have a great time
The time has come
I like this photo from 2011 from Goa to the beach house. Travling in Indian trains are not like Swedish trains at all. Specially when the Indians train have no AC.. The only wind is from the window and the air is too hot to feel pleasent. The temprature outdoor and in the train is the same, the dust from the air hits the face and all you want to do is to get out and wash the face and body and the clothes really good for the sweat and dust.
I should not even mention the bathrooms on the train… Go and have a look and you realized the Swedis trains bathrroms are not that bad (hahah).
The journey is a part of the whole holiday. A travel has always some story from the train or the plane. But one thing is for sure, I would never travel alone as a girl in Indian train. Never and specially if the journey is during the night too. I would be scared. I know that many people are good, but you never know… Bad luck and something might happen.
I have no problems to travel with the plane alone, it feels so much more safer than the train.
This photo was taken when we traveled in lowest class without AC, we could not handle the journey that great. We were melting away… If I remember right, we took the train from Goa to a beach house during Feburary. Too hot.
I remember this time very well. My friends and I went to Camp to spend some time in SGS mall. What do we meet when we step in side the mall? yes, this big bander “girls love six packs”. You can understand what a big surprise and shock we got. In india where it is impossible to speak about it, movie are being censure. And just infront of us is this all about the big sensative topic with a bad joke. Anyway, as a tourist we took our cameras because when will we see a sign like this again?
I can say like this, I have never seen a sign for durex in India every since our vist at SGS mall. The sign must have happen by mistake, or bad bit anything. But this was not a normal sign in India or any other country.
While I am here in Sweden and facing an other fall and coldness. A dear friend send a photo on whatsapp from Mumbai. What I felt was, damn you, why can I not be there?
So, in November, I am going to plan my trip in India. I know there will be three stops. The stops are Mumbai most likely stay at a friends place in Bandra. There is a place I wish to go to and it is of course Cafe leopold. I have to no questions alone or with friends. Only becasue of the books I read, too famous place to skip.
Than in Pune, I am going to stay at my friends and families houses. I do not have any pecial wishes beside I wish to have chaat and spend times with them. Also, I want to go out to kue bar and oakwood. So, dresses and high hees are going in the bag.
The best part with this trip is I am going to Goa. I need the sun, and the heat. There are no questions about that. But, I would not dear to travel alone to Goa, I can fly alone in India, but not travel alone in Bus or train. That is too risky in my eyes. I know some girls have done backpacking alone in India, but I do not want to take any risks.
However, hopefully my dear friend is free so we can travel to Goa, and be on the beach, eat good and enjoy the time in Goa without drugs. I am sure it is possible to enjoy Goa without harming the body.
I have skipped all sort of harmfull things in Goa and had a great time, the only thing you need in the end is good company. A and O is the company everything.
Goa, are you ready?
In January the weekend before I am arriving in India my sister is getting married. The worst part is I can not attened the wedding due to final exams.
My sister had send me pictures on her sarees, she is going to wear 4 difference sarees all with yellow due to somesort of traditional reasons. I have so much to learn from Indian culutre.
However, the photos on her sarees are beautiful. Indians sarees are extremly beautiful and indian women are beautiful therefore everything becomes duble beautiful. I am so happy for her she is going to be the most beautiful bride ever!
Is it possible for me to get a saree like that? I am in love with this sarees it is soo soo beautiful the pink/red and gold!
My culture is so dull, white dress for marrage. Colors are so much more fun.
What do you prefere color or white?
