Culturally and socially, northern India couldn't differ more from it's southern counterpart. I did miss those welcoming southern smiles, but I was never short on things to explore around these parts of the Indian subcontinent. It was a delicious and surreal trip.
It is fair to say that when it comes to spiritual places in northern India, as visitors, we are absolutely spoiled for choice here. The only thing restricting us is usually our available time. So, although this is by no means a complete compendium, here are some of the favourite places I came across during my time here.
Yes, you read that correctly - there is a place called Bhubaneswar located on the North-East coast of India, that bills itself as the "Miami Beach of India." If that hadn't peaked my interest enough already, there was also the promise of some surfable waves. Unsurprisingly, neither of those statements was close to the truth. The main reason these images are now getting their own post is because they simply look so out of place next to any of the other images from this trip. There is a surrealism to this place that still fascinates me now.
