It is impossible to sum the trip up with one inspirational moment, as there were so many!
The Taj Mahal visit was amazing... you almost expect to be underwhelmed when visiting such an iconic landmark... however it was totally amazing. It is as big as (or even bigger) than you might expect. The trips to see the Ganges in Varanasi at night and at dawn were also amazing.
At the other end of the scale, some of the spontaneous events really made the trip too..
When Avtar (our group leader) pulled over a small collection of camel carts to allow us all a ride on the back, we all wondered quite what we had let ourselves in for on the trip...
However that was just the afternoon of the first full day ... by the end of the day we had stopped at and joined in with the dancing of a Wedding Procession (including the Groom riding on an elephant) which happened to be making its way along the road when we were on our way to a Palace for dinner. and then on the way back from the Palace we were welcomed into another Wedding where we had photos taken with the Bride and Groom. Did I mention that we had already visited Delhi's largest Sikh temple and driven the five or so hours from Delhi to Jaipur that day....?!
Other spontaneous events included visits to a couple of villages in India (one where we were invited by the Mayoress to enjoy chai with the villagers) oh and we may have delayed some of the village children from getting to school on time... after the impromptu photo sessions had ended. Many of the villagers enjoyed us taking more photos when they knew they could see themselves on the camera screen afterwards! Also we led an impromptu English lesson at a school in Nepal!
Kathmandu was amazing, we could have done with a bit longer there... what we did see while we were there really gave us all a taste for the City.
What I have mentioned is really only the tip of the iceberg though... there were so many other highlights!
