Back in 2009, I went on a trip to India for about 17 days. It was my first holiday abroad without my parents so it was quite an adventure for me!
I flew into Delhi. However, I only stayed there for one night so I didn’t see much of it. To be honest, I wasn’t really impressed with what I did see and being tired from about 15 hours of travel probably didn’t help.
Anyway on Day 2, we were due to go to Agra to see the Taj Mahal! We woke up at 4am to catch the train to Agra which took about 2 hours. However when getting off the train, you really had to battle your way off the train with all of your luggage. People were trying to get on to the train with their own suitcases. I finally managed to get off and then the train left! If I didn’t off when I did, I would have ended up God knows where which is quite a scary thought!
The Taj Mahal itself was stunning and was not a disappointment. It was huge and it was so busy there with local people which was unexpected! I think it might have been a holiday time in India when we went or lots of school trips.
I recommend visiting.
