India

Our short guide to India explores mostly the northern region of the country, better know as Rajasthan: the center of Indian art and culture.
Surrounded by colourful saris, oriental spices and chaotic noise, we found a rich mixture of tradition and modernity highlighted by incredible landscapes.
Our advice? Let your soul be moved and changed by this land of love.
Give yourself time to process and receive the medicine of India.
Remember to slow down in order to see the true beauty of this country, the one that is often invisible to the eye.
Namaste
