    Mother of God!!! Some of these places look too good to be real. “The Haunted city of Bhangarh” sure looks spooky in these pics. Why would you even want to go to Europe?

    It is an amazing place India. Three months I spent there and still there are 51 amazing places to see. I can imagine you would spend a life time travelling around and still miss some of them. Thanks for the enlightenment!

    We are so glad we will be in India within 6 weeks with 3 months to try and explore as much of this list and a few of the obvious other more ‘touristy’ sites!

    Thanks for the inspiration!
