    If you had the ability to go back in time, just once, to that one place.

    When and where would that be?

    Well, some may contemplate for a long time about this, since its the only one chance their getting.

    Others will pick their moment right way.

    I fall into the latter category. if someone asked me the same question right now.

    I would, without any hesitation choose to go to back in time live the 35 days I spent in Rajasthan again.

    Why if you may ask?

    Here are all the reasons you should know..

    Buddies

    Travelling in India has changed a lot in the last few years. The change has happened for the good, Ofcourse.

    It's the introduction to backpackers hostels that have made a massive difference for me as a solo traveller. Especially Rajasthan, The hostels are spread wide across the nook and corner of the state. This has enabled me to connect and be friends with so many co-travellers as most of them are all solo travelling. At some point, No matter how shy we are would want to engage in conversation and probably even hang out if the person seems to be nice.

    It was this State, which opened the doors to hosteling to me and I made the most of this opportunity. I have gone out meals with these people, found out few things about their world on the other side, visited various monument with a camera in hand, celebrated the festival Holi and sometimes, we chilled and enjoyed the bliss of doing nothing together.

    Jeez, it was so much fun!

    Places

    I did mention about visiting various monuments with my friends, didn't I?
    Have I told you how good these monuments are?

    Hell, No!

    Rajasthan is filled with tons of Palaces and Forts spread across the state. Most of these places have been built by either the Mughals or the Rajputs, It has royalty written all over them. These places are so beautifully constructed and decorated that you will immediately start wondering how it must be to live in there as kings and queens.

    If you are someone who has the eye for Architecture, Photography or both, Don't even ask me how much you will enjoy you will enjoy this place.

    Photography

    I love Photography, Did you really think ill fail to make a separate category for this?

    Haha

    Rajasthan is not just about photographing beautiful palaces and fort. it also has a lot of people cladded in colourful traditional dresses and Turbans. Some of them can be your perfect model for portraits.

    Here is the Proof

    Food

    After you are done spending the entire day visiting a monument with your newly found friends and clicking pictures of people..

    Wouldn't you feel hungry?

    This Royal State won't disappoint you one bit as the delicacies here are as royal as the Palaces. From Dal Bhattis to Thalis, you just have to have to name it and it will all be served.

    Here is one of the popular dish of Rajasthan that My Sister Prepared at home

    Is going back in time really possible?


    Sadly, No!

    I wish time traveling machines did exist,but that invention will take time, if not never!

    What I do have is a Video I made during my trip to relive every bit of it again.

    I hope you live it through My Eyes :)
