My favourite variation of a popular local breakfast. The flakiest freshly made paratha with sambar and coconut chutney. Sadly we discovered this place on our last day in Neil Island! 😕 - - - farandfurthertrip incredibleindia onthetable cntravelereats lifeandthyme imatraveler foodandwine indianfood andamanislands eattheworld flashofdelight

Andaman and Nicobar Islands are fish lovers paradise. Local fishermen bring fresh fish every day. We were enjoying grilled fish on a daily basis and couldn't get tired of it 🐟😋 - - - farandfurthertrip incredibleindia andamanandnicobar havelock passionpassport traveldeeper imatraveler cntravelereats eatlocal lifeandthyme

Internet is a luxury on Andaman and Nicobar Islands but I can happily live without it. In fact, it was so refreshing not being able to check my mailbox and Instagram several times a day! We are slowly wrapping up first part of our journey (We are not going to Indonesia with our vehicles after all. A lot has changed since we started this adventure, but that's part of travelling and I like being spontaneous and able to change plans). We've left Suzi & Sisu rest for a couple of weeks in Kolkata while we were taking a new breath in this little paradise. - We've got a diving licence and discovered an exciting new passion which was hidden under water. Diving is an incredibly relaxing activity and open the door to a whole new world. - We will soon resume a semi normal working life. I'm not going back to London just yet but will be working remotely from India for a few months before it gets unbearably hot. - - - farandfurthertrip incredibleindia passionpassport traveldeeper andamanislands havelockisland IamATraveler TLPicks finditliveit theglobewanderer lonelyplanet beautifuldestinations beautifulmatters

First day in Kolkata was a good one. I was mostly just roaming around, familiarising myself with the city, tasting local food, drinking many cups of sugary milk tea, watching the hustle and bustle of busy streets and feeling too shy (and overwhelmed) to take out my camera. It's a city full of contrasts. Lively and joyful but also sad and poor, everything is here. I feel ready to explore more! - - - farandfurthertrip incredibleindia cityofjoykolkata kolkata exploremore lifeandthyme passionpassport tlpicks

Today we enjoyed our last cup of chai and lalmohan ball. We are on a ferry leaving Majuli and heading towards Kaziranga National Park. I already miss Majuli! - On the other hand, leaving Majuli is the only way to save me from gaining 10kg as it seems I have no willpower when it comes to lalmohan! Luckily I don't know how to make them. 😜🙈 - - - farandfurthertrip majuli incredibleindia foodandwine beautifulcuisines passionpassport todayfood lifeandthyme eatlocal huffposttaste lalmohan

Majuli, the world's second largest river island, is one of those places where you come for one day and end up staying one week. We've been exploring the island by all possible means of transport (by foot, bicycle, car and motorbike) and each brought a different perspective. I love the traditional bamboo houses in tribal Missing villages, roaming pigs and goats, women weaving silk or cotton on handlooms and children playing. What seems to be a little paradise on earth though, turns into a very tough place to live during monsoon season which brings sever floods and many problems. - - - farandfurthertrip incredibleindia majuli northeastindia passionpassport tlpicks imatraveler traveldeeper lifeandthyme

We spent one week in Nagaland, another state of North East India next to the Myanmar border. We met so many amazing people and stayed with the loveliest family in Kohima for a few days. We've tasted local rice beer, some frogs and snails (Naga people eat literally everything that nature offers including dogs, snakes, worms or monkeys). We also did a hike to Dzukou Valley, an incredible place that looks like a filming location from The Lord of the Rings. If it wasn't for the freezing weather, we would have stayed even longer because there's so much to see, explore and learn about local tribal culture. - - - farandfurthertrip incredibleindia dzukouvalley tlpicks passionpassport imatraveler finditliveit traveldeeper beautifuldestinations

It's orange season in India and I can't get enough. Local oranges, bananas and pineapples taste so much better than back home, I could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Actually what Indians call an orange is known as mandarine or tangerine in Europe. 🤔 - - - farandfurthertrip northeastindia tasteintravel eatlocal eattheworld imatraveler travelereats huffposttaste passionpassport tlpicks lifeandthyme

'Power' breakfast for a great day spent in the company of amazing people. - Today we drove from Dimapur to Kohima in Nagaland with a group of local motorcyclist who gave us a taste of Naga culture. No words nor photos can describe what we have experienced. They welcomed complete strangers with gracious hospitality beyond our imagination. - We've been falling in love with North East India since our first day here but the last two days exceeded all my expectations. This part of India is absolutely incredible. - - - farandfurthe morningmotivation incredibleindia imatraveler womenwhoexplore onthetable cntravelereats foodandwine huffposttaste eattheworld northeastindia

My favourite blues 💙 I spent the last day of 2017 in the middle of a jungle, swimming in crystal clear waters of a rainbow waterfall. I couldn't have imagined a better place to be. No internet, no technology just pure nature which felt like real paradise, a hidden gem that is North East India. I hope you all had a great start to the new year! - - - farandfurthertrip incredibleindia traveldeeper travelcouple passionpassport imatraveler northeastindia meghalaya

Today is our last day in Pakistan. It's been the most confusing and challenging part of our trip, but once again people we met and beautiful nature of north Pakistan made us forget all troubles. It's a fascinating country definitely worth travelling to. - We took a quick walk around the Walled City of Lahore yesterday. We could spend days exploring Lahore, one of the largest cities in the world. I will have to come back and I hope it's going to be soon! - - - farandfurthertrip visitpakistan lahore cntraveler imatraveler womantraveler womenwhoexplore traveldeeper TLPicks finditliveit theglobewanderer lonelyplanet beautifuldestinations beautifulmatters

Shimshal valley road, the most spectacular (and scary) mountain road I've ever driven on. Over 50km long road (at an elevation of around 2,500m) links a beautiful village called Shimshal and Karakoram Highway in Gilgit-Baltistan province of Pakistan. - It took us 5 hours to cross the valley! Driving this road was a mind blowing experience. Incredible views, tens of turns and vertical drops of hundreds of meters make one feel truly humble. North of Pakistan has been definitely my favourite part of the country despite the freezing temperatures and no heating in local hotels. Summer is apparently better season to visit this region. 🤔 - - - farandfurthertrip Pakistan karakoramhighway traveldeeper passionpassport finditliveit shimshalpass womenwhoexplore travelcouple womantraveler womenoverlandingtheworld IamATraveler TLPicks finditliveit theglobewanderer lonelyplanet beautifuldestinations adventurethatislife awesomedreamplaces

Going for lunch never felt so special. We've been in Pakistan for ten days out of which we were free to roam around for 3,5 days! Most of the time we were in the company of police unable to leave our hotel. Today we were lucky to drive for half a day without police escort and stopped for lunch at a roadside restaurant. - I've travelled to many countries before, but Pakistan imposes real challenge for me. I must admit I'm feeling slightly frustrated. Security situation is not ideal here, however the way it's being handled is not very tourist friendly. We feel like prisoners paying for their own cell and transportation. - We were consoled on many occasions that it's going to get better as we move towards the north of the country. But here we are in Besham heading to Gilgit, confined to our hotel again.

Two days ago we left Iran. We went unprepared but with open eyes and hearts, ready to learn about a culture we'd known so little about. We were extremely privileged to meet amazing friendly and hospitable people and we left a piece of our heart in Iran. It's a country I will definitely return to. - - We spent the last two days travelling from Taftan to Quetta in Pakistan. It's been a long and tiring journey but all the Levies and policemen escorting us were super nice and friendly and made us feel very safe and welcome. - Despite the security issues in the region, we were extremely lucky to be able to visit a local bazar today. Once again, everyone we met were so nice and polite. I can't wait to explore Pakistan over the next few days. - - - farandfurthertrip mytinyatlas traveldeeper passionpassport IamATraveler TLPicks finditliveit theglobewanderer lonelyplanet adventurethatislife wildernessculture awesomeglobe

Naqsh-E Jahan square in Esfahan is home to two mosques and Ālī Qāpū (Alighapoo) palace. The music hall located on the top floor is so worth the climb up a steep spiral staircase. A spectacular ceiling of the music hall is decorated with a special pattern of plaster niches in the shape of vases which absorb echoes and ensured the perfect acoustics. - - - farandfurthertrip iran esfahan isfahan architecture traveldeeper IamATraveler TLPicks finditliveit theglobewanderer lonelyplanet beautifuldestinations beautifulmatters passionpassport wonderfulworld dametraveler

After three days and over 660km we arrived to Kashan, a historical city between Teheran and Esfahan. Having spent the last few days in nature, we are adjusting to city vibes again. Luckily there many small alleys in the old town with traditional houses, old hammam and mosques where one can hide away from the hustle and bustle of the city. - - - farandfurthertrip kashan visitiran kashan_tourism welltraveled beautifuldestinations finditliveit traveldeeper imatraveler theglobewanderer awesomedreamplaces tlpicks instagood adventurethatislife kashanhistory

So far, it's been really difficult to find anything else but kebabs. All places we've visited in Iran seem to be selling either kebabs or fast food (hamburgers, fries and pizzas are quite popular here). The lack of traditional Iranian rice and stews is however balanced by abundance of amazing local fruit. Trucks selling fruit and small stalls are impossible to miss in every town and village. I'm absolutely obsessed with local persimmons. They are super sweet, soft and ripe that they almost burst in your hands when you touch them. I've also nearly eaten my weight in pomegranates in just one week. 💛 - - - farandfurthertrip visitiran eatlocal eattheworld autumn huffposttaste instagood persimmon f52grams onmyplate welltraveled

We didn't have a proper Iranian meal yet so here's a throw back to one of our lunches in Armenia.
