Varanasi was the place that I imagined I would find India’s intriguing spirituality and most interesting of characters and I was not wrong. The city, with its holy people, it’s rituals, it’s maddening traffic, it’s delicious street food, it’s suffocating alleyways and it’s annoyingly frustrating boat touts and rickshaw drivers, was my favourite place yet.
Pushkar was pretty 'touristy' for my liking. I had to look a little harder for the magic that was there. But I did find it and I ended up spending nearly a week there.
