VISIT TO THE GHATS OF VARANASI

“Being in a funeral definitely was something that we never thought we would experience during a vacation, but the cremation in the Varanasi Ghat is a completely different ceremony than most of us are used to. We didn’t see anyone crying or sad faces which was such a relief for us. People are not allowed to be sad. Some are even happy that the soul found salvation which we found as a very interesting way to deal with death.” Rising from the Himalayas, the Ganga is considered the holiest of rivers by Hindus. According to mythology Varanasi liberates soul from human body to the ultimate, it’s believed that the ritual of having the body cremated at the Ghats (the crematory temples by the river) and having the ashes thrown to the river will provide salvation for the human soul.

Also, it is important to mention that you are hiking to the top of a volcano that is 5,633 feet above sea level, so it requires a lot of…

LIVING NEXT TO A SUNFLOWER FIELD – ITALY

Italy is one of our favorite places to travel and I guess having a sun flower field on the backyard made our experience even more especial. https://youtu.be/-Uons5_O3oM When we decided to spend two months traveling around Europe, we realized that it would be fun to be based in a central location where we could easily explore the nearby cities. We both had the desire to spend some time traveling in Italy so finding a central location there was very important for us. After some research and talking to a couple of friends that live in Bologna we realized that it would be a good idea to be based there. Besides the fact that Bologna is right in the middle of Italy and it’s less than an hour by train from Tuscany, the city is known for being one of Italy’s greatest cities for eating.  We definitely wanted to eat pasta…
