I am not good at taking portraits, even more when it's of strangers. It feels so intimate and invasive, yet so detached. At the same time, people watching is one of my favourite thing to do while travelling. It's a very good excercises during a trip to slow down and enjoy the beauty of other people and the way they stop to look at things. #travelbloggers#travelblogging#travelstagram_#travelphotography#streetphotography#workandtravel#responsibletravel#adventureseeker#wonderfulplaces#placestovisit#bestdestinations#worldnomads#lonelylplanet#letsguide#passportready#passportpassion#sheexplores#sheisnotlost#photooftheday#reallife#shotatsight#beautifulday#Olympus#nokia8#udaipur#jodhpur#rajashtan#india

Sometimes I am an architect while I travel. I find myself looking at compositions, materials and colours and feel inspired by all of them. I love to share this prospective as much as being introduced to new ones and I value all the details I collect along the way. #travelbloggers#travelblogging#travelstagram_#travelphotography#streetphotography#workandtravel#responsibletravel#adventureseeker#wonderfulplaces#placestovisit#bestdestinations#worldnomads#lonelylplanet#letsguide#passportready#passportpassion#sheexplores#sheisnotlost#photooftheday#reallife#shotatsight#beautifulday#Olympus#nokia8#jodhpurdiaries#jodhpur#rajashtan#india

We woke up in the oasis of @raasjodhpur, had an amazing breakfast and climbed the steep way up to the top of the fortress. The view over the city was impressive, as the towering walls over the city. The first time I was checking all the pictures we took I realized that I look emotional in most of them, that's probably because I was. #travelbloggers#travelblogging#travelstagram_#travelphotography#streetphotography#workandtravel#responsibletravel#adventureseeker#wonderfulplaces#placestovisit#bestdestinations#worldnomads#lonelylplanet#letsguide#passportready#passportpassion#sheexplores#sheisnotlost#photooftheday#reallife#shotatsight#beautifulday#Olympus#nokia8#jodhpurdiaries#jodhpur#rajashtan#india

After the longest ride we arrived in Jodhpur and there I finally felt that that specific place could only be in India. That image of density, mess and noise, but also smiles and colours and relax I was expecting finally lived up to my imagination and it was so weird and fascinating I couldn't wait to start exploring. #travelbloggers#travelblogging#travelstagram_#travelphotography#streetphotography#workandtravel#responsibletravel#adventureseeker#wonderfulplaces#placestovisit#bestdestinations#worldnomads#lonelylplanet#letsguide#passportready#passportpassion#sheexplores#sheisnotlost#photooftheday#reallife#shotatsight#beautifulday#Olympus#nokia8#jodhpurdiaries#jodhpur#rajashtan#india

I have always loved spending road trips looking outside the window, getting hypnotized by the landscape and by the fast details catching my attention. Self-driving India would have been impossible for the two of us and I am glad we had a driver to take care of the insane traffic and all the cows on the road. I was free to stare at the always changing surroundings and I could be happier. #travelbloggers#travelblogging#travelstagram_#travelphotography#streetphotography#workandtravel#responsibletravel#adventureseeker#wonderfulplaces#placestovisit#bestdestinations#worldnomads#lonelylplanet#letsguide#passportready#passportpassion#sheexplores#sheisnotlost#photooftheday#reallife#shotatsight#beautifulday#Olympus#nokia8#jodhpur#udaipur#rajashtan#india

We walked around the Kumbhalgarh Fort, shared the sandwiches we had taken with us with two kids covered in dust and bought from a small stand a fruit we had never seen before. Once we reached the top of the Fort the view was so mind incredible we really doubted all of this was real. #travelbloggers#travelblogging#travelstagram_#travelphotography#streetphotography#workandtravel#responsibletravel#adventureseeker#wonderfulplaces#placestovisit#bestdestinations#worldnomads#lonelylplanet#letsguide#passportready#passportpassion#sheexplores#sheisnotlost#photooftheday#reallife#shotatsight#beautifulday#Olympus#nokia8#jodhpur#udaipur#kumbhalgarh#rajashtan#india

Before defining the itinerary of this trip to India I studied quite a lot and decided to follow the suggestion of @hippieinheelsblog and planed a car ride from Udaipur to Jodhpur. It was amazing, endless, but amazing. In Udaipur we arranged a driver to take us to Jodhpur, a city 250km on the north, and agreed with him to stop along the way for some sightseeing. The first stop was at the Kumbhalgarh Fort, a fortress in the middle of the lush high hills surrounded by the second longest wall in the world after the Great Wall of China. #travelbloggers#travelblogging#travelstagram_#travelphotography#streetphotography#workandtravel#responsibletravel#adventureseeker#wonderfulplaces#placestovisit#bestdestinations#worldnomads#lonelylplanet#letsguide#passportready#passportpassion#sheexplores#sheisnotlost#photooftheday#reallife#shotatsight#beautifulday#Olympus#nokia8#udaipur#jodhpur#kumbhalgarh#rajashtan#india

We knew we would be sitting in a car for most of the day, so we decided to wake up at 6am for a sunrise yoga session. It was beyond my best expectations. Having a yoga class was on my short wish list after speaking with a good friend of mine about this trip to India and I took it as a sign that there were yoga classes at the temple that I fell in love with the first day in Udaipur. Needless to say that the surroundings, the gentle, but effective yoga and the early morning light were the perfect start of the day. Thank you @dr.eva_lanche for giving me this great idea and @enteyoga for the amazing experience. #travelbloggers#travelblogging#travelstagram_#travelphotography#streetphotography#workandtravel#responsibletravel#adventureseeker#wonderfulplaces#placestovisit#bestdestinations#worldnomads#lonelylplanet#letsguide#passportready#passportpassion#sheexplores#sheisnotlost#photooftheday#reallife#shotatsight#beautifulday#Olympus#nokia8#sweetudaipur#udaipurblogz#wonderersofudaipir#udaipur#rajashtan#india

We were early for sunset, but too close to Sunset Point not to stop and have a look. We had to argue for five minutes and fake a dramatic exit to keep our rickshaw driver waiting, but it was worth it. Not that far away from the city center, this is the place where young couple go on dates and it was really nice to see, even more than the beautiful scenery. #travelbloggers#travelblogging#travelstagram_#travelphotography#streetphotography#workandtravel#responsibletravel#adventureseeker#wonderfulplaces#placestovisit#bestdestinations#worldnomads#lonelylplanet#letsguide#passportready#passportpassion#sheexplores#sheisnotlost#photooftheday#reallife#shotatsight#beautifulday#Olympus#nokia8#sweetudaipur#udaipurblogz#wonderersofudaipir#udaipur#rajashtan#india

After lunch, a very short nap and a horrible coffee, we decided to take a rikshaw and visit the Mahasatya. It is a huge royal cemetery and it is the most impressive thing I have seen in Udaipur. The complex is a bit outside the city and it feels completely abandoned. When we visited, a self proclaimed guardian gave us some information and promised to keep a secret that I was taking pictures. After a small tour, we were left wandering undisturbed on our own if not for the cows and a family of dogs guarding the queen's cenotaph. It was beyond surreal. #travelbloggers#travelblogging#travelstagram_#travelphotography#streetphotography#workandtravel#responsibletravel#adventureseeker#wonderfulplaces#placestovisit#bestdestinations#worldnomads#lonelylplanet#letsguide#passportready#passportpassion#sheexplores#sheisnotlost#photooftheday#reallife#shotatsight#beautifulday#Olympus#nokia8#sweetudaipur#udaipurblogz#wonderersofudaipir#udaipur#rajashtan#india

White buildings, clear water and fresh breeze make Udaipur a very exceptional place. The blindening effect of the white facade is extremely powerful and the care in keeping the lake as clean as possible is surprising and very appreciated. It was very fascinating to see that in this context, there were people bathing in public waters (you can see two in the last picture). There are regulations against it and I am sure people don't really understand why. Its fascinating to see a society built so differently and yet so familiar. #travelbloggers#travelblogging#travelstagram_#travelphotography#streetphotography#workandtravel#responsibletravel#adventureseeker#wonderfulplaces#placestovisit#bestdestinations#worldnomads#lonelylplanet#letsguide#passportready#passportpassion#sheexplores#sheisnotlost#photooftheday#reallife#shotatsight#beautifulday#Olympus#nokia8#sweetudaipur#udaipurblogz#wonderersofudaipir#udaipur#rajashtan#india

Compared to Mumbai, Udaipur has a limited number of restaurant, but everybody agreed that @jagat.niwas.palace.udaipur was a top choice and it was easy to decide to go there for lunch after the long morning of sight seeing. It was one of the best experiences in town. Beside the delicious food and the extremely beautiful building, it has gorgeous views over the lake, in the most peaceful atmosphere. #travelbloggers#travelblogging#bloggersofinstagram#travelphotography#streetphotography#workandtravel#responsibletravel#adventureseeker#lonelyplanet#wonderfulplaces#placestovisit#bestdestinations#worldnomads#passportready#passportpassion#sheexplores#sheisnotlost#letsguide#photooftheday#Olympus#nokia8#reallife#shotatsight#beautifulday#sweetudaipur#udaipurblogz#wonderersofudaipir#udaipur#rajashtan#india
