#tajmahal is a must when you visit India. I’ve heard all the beautiful things about Taj Mahal and it deserves even more. There are also certain things to be aware off. *Make sure you don’t go there when it is above 40 celcius degrees. We were there when it was 44 celcius degrees and my whole dress was soaked in sweat. At some point it was really hard to walk under the sun. *During the off season, the entrance fee is less by 50% and you don’t pay an exta fee for taking pictures. *Don’t take your books or tripod with you as you need to leave them at the security or get a guide and they keep them for you somewhere and you need to pay for the keeping service as well. *There is a special line dedicated for foreigners at the gate where you go in faster but there is no sign for it so don’t end up waiting in the longest line. *There is a free golfcar ride to the carpark after your visit Taj Mahal, don’t pay for extra. *There is a cleaner toilet when you enter the garden of Taj Mahal, don’t use the one that belongs to a restaurant before entering the gate of Taj Mahal.

Right before we took off on our cross-country roadtrip in April, I met my Indian family for the first time. An intercultural relationship will have many obstacles to overcome anyways, but getting the in-laws and the whole family into the mix will pose a totally different challenge! No matter how welcoming and loving Uncle, Auntie and Sister are. ❤
Auntie asked me, in a very shy manner it seemed, if I'd be willing to wear traditional Indian clothing too. I didn't own any at that point in time and honestly had never thought that it would be 'me', even though I did always think Indian women looked so stunning in their sarees. Regardless, I replied I certainly would, without thinking about it much. Auntie seemed very enthusiastic about this and invited me to try out some beautiful garments she and Sister had. I put this salwar kameez on and wrapped the chunni around my neck. I will never forget the look on Auntie's face when she was looking at me, the joy in her eyes and the wide smile just making her glow. I hadn't seen myself in the suit yet but I felt like the most beautiful thing in the world. ❤
Auntie asked if she could gift me the clothes and I told her I'd be honoured. Already the very next day I dressed in my suit at Taj, eager to show Auntie how much wearing it meant to me. Now, everytime I put on my traditional wear, I feel completely like myself. A part of our Indian family. ❤
