If I could choose who I wanted to be in the next life, I would like to be a wealthy adventurous no-mad travelling across the world in an RV doing odd jobs for experience.

I often dream of: being back in the mountains of Uttarakhand.

Insider tips: India is different, just different. The country can cater to anyone and everyone as a holiday destination; from the adventurous backpackers, to romancing couples, families or even the one off hardcore spiritual wanderer. You can go at it alone or with a companion, there is as much or as little to do as you can let your imagination soar.
