Life of Travel: Episode 2 (Bundi, India)

By |2017-11-16T01:57:19-05:00November 16th, 2017|A Life of Travel, India|5 Comments

It’s time for the second episode of my “Life of Travel” video series. This episode was filmed on the rooftop of the wonderful Dev Niwas Hotel in the magical town of Bundi, India.

Bundi is one of my favorite destinations in all of India and as you’ll see in the video, it has a lot to do with its setting. With a massive palace dug into the side of the mountain and a huge fort covering the summit, with a maze of lanes full of old, charming, pastel-colored homes and a population that is perhaps the warmest and most genuine in the country, there’s a reason why travelers have a hard time leaving.

In this episode, I talk a little about Bundi before answering some more of the travel questions that you’ve submitted to me over the past couple of weeks.

I hope you enjoy!

    Hi Derek,

    I know I’m late on the draw with this blog post! But, I was wondering if you had any suggestions, whether it be itineraries, transportation ideas, etc. about trekking through Northern India

      Hey Katie – That’s a tough question to answer in a quick comment. But my favorite place in the mountains of India is the region of Spiti, Lahaul and Kinnaur valleys. That ‘loop’ is simply breathtaking, with gorgeous hiking opportunities, remote villages and a very unique experience overall!

    Derek, awesome to see you on video dude! Bundi looks gorgeous. India in general has a flavor that you cannot create. Not like anywhere on earth. Sounds like a welcoming place indeed. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Thanks for the great ideas. I’d forgotten about Somaliland (I’d planned a trip there at one point, but it fell through). I’ll let you know when I’m heading out to a few of intriguing places.
