One of the main tourist destinations on Spain’s Costa Blanca, Calpe has been home to many ancient civilizations, which means it has a fascinating history and some remnants of its past, such as its Roman Baths that you can see today.
How do you make a post of the Taj Mahal and do it justice? I felt like this story was best told in (almost) black and white- it’s still just as majestic.
When we arrived in Agra, we walked out of the railway station with a new friend, Eric, that we made on the train. He found us drivers and we sort of went with it- too lazy to negotiate. Our guy was called Ali Baba and ended up driving us around that day and the next. Ol’ Ali Baba wasn’t the worst driver, but he certainly wasn’t the best. For our Taj visit, we had tickets to go for sunrise. We get up early and he drives us and basically dumps us off at this golf course and told us to walk. Lol. So we did. We got lost (no surprise there) but eventually made it before the masses, although we missed the dawn break. Oh well- it was cloudy so there wasn’t much to see in the sunrise department anyway. The Taj was as dreamy as it looks in photos- the marble and detail is exquisite.
One thing to note- there is a different tomb somewhat nearby that’s called the Baby Taj and is said to have majorly inspired the design of the Taj Mahal. Mike and I both liked that one better- so peaceful and almost empty of any crowds! #india#tajmahal#agra#instaindia#indiagram#beautiful#magical#wondersoftheworld#ancient#wow#peaceful#travelgram#adventuring#asia#travel#travelgram#magicaldestinations#adventure#adventuregram#borntotravel#traveler
The most beautiful fairytale places are supposed to be magical, idealized, and for the most part imaginary. The blending of human development with beautiful and unique aspects of nature make a fairy tale destination.
The destinations in this post seem to fit that description, except that they are real!
