Globe Trotting J's 2019 Trip Day 13: Atlas Class

One of my biggest goals of 2019 has been to be more grateful. Its taking the couple of minutes each day to realize everything that I have in my life and how fortunate and lucky I am. Coming off of yesterday where we spent three hours at the Dharavi slums and then came back to the 5* resort at the Four Seasons Mumbai to then get pampered in the spa and have a fancy Indian dinner isn’t lost on me. Nor is the fact that this morning we were picked up from said resort in a BMW to take us to the Mumbai International Airport to go on a five hour journey from Mumbai to Singapore, when most of our tour guides or hotel staff we talk to have never left their home country.

Globe Trotting J's 2019 Trip Day 12: Five Star Slums

I cannot tell you how great it felt to spend some time relaxing yesterday. After a lot of tours / activities over the last ten days or so it was nice to come back to the hotel and enjoy the facilities. This morning we were up early again. Jake and I went to breakfast (while Jenn continued to sleep) where he had waffles and I stuck with my cappuccino. A little before 9 AM we made our way down to meet our tour guide Nano who took us to our van to drive us to the Dharavi Slums in Mumbai, the highest populated slum in the world.

We’ve been so fortunate to have absolutely perfect weather from the day we left New York (which feels like ages ago) to the moment we went to sleep last night in Mumbai. But that all changed this morning with the welcoming of monsoon season here in India. We’re fortunate we weren’t here a week ago when they had their worst floods in recent history but we woke up to good rain that only increased when we went down to breakfast.

Grand Adventure 2017 Day 25: Can I Take a Picture?

It's been a long road to get here, but today is the second to last day of our Grand Adventure, and one that we've been looking forward to since we booked our flights nearly nine months ago. This morning we woke up at 5 AM and were downstairs at The Lodhi a few minutes after 6 AM to meet up with our driver Sanjay who was going to take us on the 220KM journey from Delhi to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal.
