There are two types of travelers: those who have been to India and those who haven’t. When I started traveling for a living in 2008, India was one of many countries on my must-visit list. I didn’t get the opportunity to go until a decade later, in 2018. To say that trip was a mix of monumental highs and devastating lows would be an understatement. I had the most incredible time learning about the Hindu culture, visiting historical sites, and trying as much Indian street food as possible.
Unfortunately, I was ill for a huge chunk of my trip (the dreaded Delhi Belly is no joke) and had to press on with creating content even though I was the sickest I’ve ever been in my life. Being on the ground in India and seeing the huge differences in the languages, culture, and cuisine as I moved from city to city made me realize that I had barely scratched the surface of what India is by the time my trip ended. So I made the decision to return to India at least once every few years for the rest of my life.
After my first two whirlwind trips through India in February and November of 2018, I decided to focus on thoroughly exploring one state at a time so I could learn as much as I could about each one. So, in 2019, I explored the unique northeastern states of Assam and Meghalaya, and the following year, I spent 12 days in Kerala. Below, you can also find all of my travel and food guides, as well as my India travel episodes. I hope they inspire you to visit these beautiful places in India!
