"This is India, anything is possible." 'This quote from one of our many tuk tuk drivers really stuck with us. Never has someone summed up the attitude of a nation so succinctly while dodging traffic so effortlessly. I saw it as a wonderfully positive vision of India - if you want it, you can make it happen. However, as we reflect upon our time here, I can't help but see both sides of his motto. On one side it breeds a vision of entrepreneurs, do or die, & "let's make it happen" positivity, which for the most part we adore. On the other hand, it can lead to issues with rubbish, sewage and poverty. "Anything is possible" can be twisted into "I can do what I want" and that's not always for the common good. It's a nation struggling with the influx of single use plastics, poor sewage systems and education towards pollution. While it's easy to be shocked and upset by these things we take for granted, for us, the spirit, the smiles and the colour will always shine through. India is a beautifully vibrant nation and it's been a complete assault on every sense. But what you put in you get out tenfold, and for me that's the joy of travelling. I don't want it to be easy, I don't want to be able to sail through a country with no effort. I want to be challenged and tested and woken up to cultural differences. Its been our most challenging country by far, but we've fallen hard for India. In 7 weeks and 5 states, we've barely scratched the surface - we will be back, because here, anything is possible.'

'Cheow Lake was the most amazing place I have visited in Thailand so far! It looks like a place on another planet. The size of this lake is incredible and the limestone mountains scattered everywhere make it a unique place.' By @yoanguerreiro

At 11.4 m tall, The Great Buddha of Kamakura was originally cast inside a large temple hall. The Buddha has been standing in the open since the 15th century after the temple buildings were damaged by typhoons and a large tidal wave. By @mkewara

'I still can't get over this place, it's like being thrown back in time. The colours, the cars, the people. And sadly one of the best things was spending a whole week without WiFi and internet and fully submerging ourselves in the city known as Havana.' By @jakenethercott

'Vietnam is nothing short of amazing - the people, the beauty, the compassion, the resilience. I always wondered what drew my friends who traveled to SE Asia there, but now I fully get it. 5 days was way too short, but long enough to know I will be back quick.' By @mariahhark
