The Taj Mahal

Visiting the iconic Taj Mahal was actually the last attraction on our list after 2 months of travelling from South to North of India!

We stayed for 2 nights as the check in time is 12pm and check out is 9am so 1 night just isn't enough to really ...

Overall, a visit to the Easter Islands will fill you with amusement and mystery and leave you wanting to know ...

It wasn't hard as these sharks swim in shallow waters and can be found close to the shore. We took a couple of kayaks out and before we knew it, we were surrounded by sharks and stingrays. The sharks are harmless and ...
