Top 10 Things To Do in India

This list was made on account of our own adventures. There are surely other things to do in India that we haven’t mentioned, but in our own experience, this is our top 10 list.     Spend Some Time on the Beaches   India is home to some gorgeous beaches.

Dharamsala & Bhagsunag

We said goodbye to Arjun and his family, and thanked them sincerely for their hospitality over the last week or so. Then Santrum drove us out to the bus station, and from there on out, it was just the three of us.

Goa India – Days 3-4
