as a tourist you MUST budget for buying jewels in Jaipur. it's like the purest form of retail therapy ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I know it seems daunting and you will be afraid to get ripped off. SO, I recommend you go to Diane Singh shop called French Concept Jewelry (on Google maps). it's silver and gold plated, real jewels, and very fairly prices with process from around 1600 RS to 2400 RS . it's very well designed and curated and you know it's real. I will be transparent and admit I spent 24k rupees here ๐Ÿ˜– lol, but I never ever buy jewelry in the USA as it's overpriced and in Goa it's usually fake. for 24k I got 24 pieces of gold plated jewelry and all my Christmas presents covered!!!

in rickshaws I wrap up here in Jodhpur because there is some pollution and dust but luckily you can take Uber once you are outside the old City (and it's cheaper)

so this doesn't look like much, I know but here in Jodhpur the food isn't awesome so far. we have had not so nice Indian food which is quite overpriced (400 plus gst for oily biryani eek) and after 5days of Indian food we wanted something western and step well is one of the only rates western places. a very bland cheese sandwich and some chips with a great view over the iconic steps outside . not the best, but okay. also next to Good Earth and some famous shops.

This temple is on the way from Udaipur to Jodhpur and of you choose to go via taxi rather than bus or train you can stop and see it. It will add about 40 min to your journey and it doesn't open til 12 so plan accordingly! Don't step on monkey poo like my friend did lol

Cafe Grasswood in Udaipur is a nice AC spot with WiFi for travelers to come for coffee snacks and healthy vegan and veggie meals.. Soya milk for coffee etc. Good find here in Udaipur!

This is so classic! "which country is suffering without you?" usually they ask which country are you from? So I thought it was so funny how he asked. These are guys usually trying to sell you something and it seems mean but usually you should ignore them as they won't leave you be and there will be another two minutes later. But this guy was funny haha

Off to Udaipur!!! So excited. I was here five years ago, to the week! A lot of people ask about budget airlines in India and from my five years flying here a LOT domestically, they are all fine!

I get so many questions about taxis in India, particularly when you first arrive at the airport. While if you have the budget, getting your hotel to pick you up is best - if you don't, Uber is an awesome option. It's a little different in India though and here is what you need to know.

Mom acai bowls in Bali are the best. In India, you only find these at one place and that's Nattis Naturals in Arpora

Happy Dussehra! Today is a fantastic holiday in India and I've been lucky enough to be a part of it for five years. One of which in mysore where they celebrate it in a big way. While Dussehra has many meanings and ways to celebrate, one thing they do in Goa is basically thank what makes them more eyes by blessing it. Like this bus has been cleaned and decorated, other taxi drivers will do the same with their cars and IT workers we
I think computers, etc. So fun! Time to clean my Omni van!

Phone tip: I've mentioned before that I use and love Xiao I phones and tablets. I got the MI note 4 about six months ago and it was the 7k to 2 Gb Ram. It was so slow and always crashed! I've sold it and today just switched to the 11k 4GB phone... So worth it. The speed difference is insane! Just a word of caution. Also, the photos on my blog and social media are often taken from my phone. The pictures turn out great for such an adorable phone.
