Last summer I went to India with my family. We spent 10 days travelling around Rajasthan and I will never forget it. We saw lots of things like the Taj Mahal and we went to a tiger reserve. Our guide was called Krishna and he was really really nice especially when I didn’t always understand things he would explain it to me and answer all my stupid questions. Also when I got ill with a fever he was really kind and gave me medicine (and got a priest to give me a blessing in a Hindu temple we visited) and I got well again very quickly.
There were lots of amazing parts of the holiday. One was when we got to ride on elephants in Jaipur. My sister and I rode an elephant called Lucky. It was really fun and I also liked riding on a camel. We were in a camel cart but Krishna talked to the camel’s owner and we were allowed to ride on them, which was really cool. I also really liked the Taj Mahal because it was even prettier than I imagined. My sister lost her shoes but the people in India are really kind and so we found them again. The weather was really hot which was nice because Krishna gave us lots of time to spend in the pool and relax in-between going to see all the amazing sites.
This was the best holiday that I have ever been on; I will miss the other people in our group and our guide a lot. I wish I could come back another year.
