Everyone warned me about Indian men.

Welp, I can cross “ride a camel” off my bucket list now! I went on an Indian Camel Safari in Jaisalmer and it was way more enjoyable and less painful than I expected :)

I trekked with a group of 10 or so foreigners into the desert about an hour outside of Jaisalmer.

Delhi + Me ≠ BFFs

Let me set the scene for you:

The night I had arrived in Delhi I’d gotten lost, gotten ripped off multiple times, was taken to the wrong hotel by my tuk tuk driver, got stared at by every Indian man within a 10-foot radius while I was eating dinner, and afterwards vomited on the side of the road on my walk back to the hotel.

In February of 2013, I quit my job and set off for my biggest trip to-date: backpacking through Asia.

The whole impetus for the trip was hiking the Everest Base Camp Trek, something I’d been saying I’d do the next time I was in-between jobs and could afford to spend at least 3 weeks in Nepal.
