TRAVEL: India

Rickshaw Mumbai Pune Inidia
Hello!  Remember me?  I've been a little absent from blogging recently due to the fact I've been working in India the last few weeks!  Yep, work decided to send me all the way to Pune, and although I actually did have to do a lot of work (unfortunately!)  I did manage to get out and about to see a bit of Pune and the surrounding area.  In true blogger style I wanted to share a few of pics and experiences with you guys!

I have to say, this post is very photo heavy, and if you're interested I've shared even more pictures on my instagram (@CharlCollection), but it was such a great experience it was difficult narrowing down the few pics I took - I'm sure (hope) you won't be bored by this post!

India is such an amazing country,  I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to travel there, while meeting some great colleagues in the country for the time.  I only briefly got to see a tiny part of the country, but the culture and diversity was astounding.  One minute we were in the hustle n bustle, just simply plain madness of Mumbai, the next we were travelling through sparse but stunning countryside heading to final destination of Pune, taking snaps of the unbelievably tame, yet completely wild monkeys!

In India you really do get to see the best the world has to have offer; incredibly friendly and smiley people, amazingly vibrant food and colours.  I was lucky enough to stay in a wonderful hotel, but stepping out of the hotel it was really quite unbelievable the amount of poverty you could encounter on the other side of the street.  It was a real eye opener.  I hope to be able to go back and explore some more!

If you've ever travelled to India, or any country nearby, let me know what you thought.  Have you any recommendations of things to do and see?
