We are home from our trip to Nepal and India. I couldn't find a reliable internet cafe during the last week, so thought I would post a couple of last things to show you our last week. After Pushkar we travelled to Jaipur and Delhi.
In Delhi we visited the Red Fort
The Lotus Temple

and several other sites around the city such as the Presidents House and India gate. This photo shows where the road cycling events took place during the Commonwealth Games recently.

We stayed in Connaught Place which is an area built by the British during their occupancy of India and features long tree lined boulevardes and buildings with a distinctly British style. It also has lots of upmarket shops and eating places, although you don't have to venture far to see people living on the street in extremely poor conditions.

We are feeling very tired from our trip and glad to be home with family and friends. Krissy has gone on to South Africa to spend a month travelling with her boyfriend, Shaun; and Robyn , James and I had a long and somewhat eventful 2 day trip home (a little visit to the doctor in Hong Kong for James after being sick on the flight from Delhi to Bangkok - Delhi belly finally got him!). Being away from home for such a long time, and visiting countries such as India and Nepal, helps you to see things from a different perspective and appreciate even more all the things we sometimes take for granted. It's also wonderful to come home to family, friends and neighbours who welcome you back with love.

We have had an amazing trip, have seen some incredible places and met some wonderful people. We realise just how lucky we are to travel the world and visit these places and it's always a real privilege to be allowed into other people's lives, even if for just a short period of time. Thank you for following us on our blog along the way, and thanks for your comments and well was great to hear from you all.

Until our next travels...........
