Bihar, New Delhi, Calcutta, India
Before going to India, I always knew it was one of those places that I simply had to go to. India is such an amazing and beautiful place. I was trying to describe it to a friend and the only thing I could come up with was "It's an assault on the senses."
You know it's going to be an adventure when you have to call your hotel operator for directions because your taxi driver has literally asked 14 people for and still can't find it - then someone named 'Lucky' rides up on a motorcycle telling us to follow him. After pulling suitcases through a labyrinth of miniature streets littered with trash, cows, dogs, and the occasional person peeing on the wall, we arrived at our hotel and tried to ignore the cockroaches.
