Travel Diary: Explorations in Northern India

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.
