Week 19: India

 

when we got off the plane we knew...

we were in trouble. It was so hot in India, but Visas and Vistas made the best of it. We explored Agra, with the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort, and New Delhi with the Red Fort, Lotus Temple, and Humayun's Tomb. We got to see master artisans at work, and learn some amazing history. Check it out!

Week 18: Cambodia

 

We had one day to explore Angkor wat...

So we got snuck over the border to check out this UNESCO World Heritage Site and the surrounding area. Cambodia is rich in history with plenty of ancient temples and cities to explore. Siem Reap, Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm and others. Climbing through jungles and over ruins all day was an amazing experience, and this was just the start of our South East Asia Fun.
