6am in Varanasi. The peace and quiet before the place absolutely erupts with life. Varanasi is a city in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh dating to the 11th century B.C. Regarded as the spiritual capital of India, the city draws Hindu pilgrims who bathe in the Ganges River’s sacred waters and perform funeral rites. Along the city's winding streets are some 2,000 temples, including Kashi Vishwanath, the “Golden Temple,” dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. 🙏🏽
Contemplating the Norwegian fjords that stretch out towards the north. Totally amazed by the last 48 hours of wandering between these fjords, feeling the energy of the ocean watching humpback whales in their natural habitat around Skjervoy and the magic of the northern lights somewhere in the middle of these fjords. What a trip! Promess I'll be back soon for more adventures.
