My 07 days in India by portrayed by 30 Postcards Project | India | Great video by friend and colleague Kevin Richberg on his project 30 Postcards around the world. This time of our trip together to the north of India. You can see me in a few scenes, specially the one being harassed by the street vendors ” Hawkers “, just look at my face priceless. After a week of travel, I was kind of OVER them. Great work Kevin. Cheers CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

Carlos Melia LIVE at the Taj Mahal in Agra India | Agra, India | Yesterday I was able to cross out another item of my Bucket List, this time the stunning, magical and eternal representation of love, the Taj Mahal Mausoleum in Agra, India. Built by commission of the 5th. Mughal ruler of India, Shah Jahan, in memory of his beloved third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. I must say that it was all I was expecting to be and much much more. Incredible and monumental symmetric Mughal architecture, which is visited daily by an average of 100,000 people. A Muslin Mausoleum, a place of worship and a true representation of eternal love. CM
Street Indian Wedding in Agra India | Agra, India | If there is one thing that always amaze me are Indian Weddings. Big celebrations, tradition, colorful customer, lively music and great great energy. Four days of celebrations, food, drinks and all the incredible Indian culture. Indeed ranking high on my bucket list, but today upon my arrival to Agra, I was lucky enough to have a sneak peak at the street procession, where the Groom, in full traditional costume, was being taken to the main event venue surrounded by family and friends, to meet his bride, over a white horse.

GPS Carlos Melia on my way to New Delhi | Bangkok, Thailand | Right this minute I am as Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, waiting to boar my AirAsia.com flight to New Delhi in India, my new destination for the whole next week. Have not been in India for over eight years so looking forward to this visit. Destinations to visit other than New Delhi are Varanasi, Agra, Bharatpur and Jaipur. Also tomorrow I will be attending the 1st. Asian Gay and Lesbian Travel Symposium, where I have been invited by Tourism Authority of Thailand, to be their guest speaker to share to the audience and Asia/International press my own experiences traveling around their stunning country. So lots to do only for only 7 nights. Namaste India. !!!! CM
OH and BTW before I forget…. when at Suvarnabhumi Airport, look for the Thai Airways Royal Silk Lounges, there is always a WiFi Network going around either inside of outside. Just an insider TIP.
North of India next stop for CarlosMeliaBlog.com | India | Visa approved and collected, so now I am ready to head for eight days to India starting November 27th. Destinations to be visited and explored courtesy of Out Journeys are: New Delhi, Varanasi, Jaipur, Bharatpur and Agra. This is my second time in India, since I have lived very briefly in Mumbai in the past, but my first time to Northern India. During this trip I will also be attending the 1st Asian Symposium on Gay & Lesbian Tourism to take place at Le Meridien Hotel in New Delhi on November 28th, where I have been requested to do a brief presentation as a Guest Speaker on Gay Travel to Thailand, based on my late experience on the destination. So far I know I will have two of my Bucket List moments during this trip, visit the Taj Mahal and Varanasi, two main attractions I have always wanted to see. So stay tuned for more travel experiences in Asia. Cheers CM
