Since we were already going to be in India, it made sense to include some touristy attractions to our itinerary. We went for the typical Golden Triangle variety, which included Agra, Jaipur and Delhi.
Before that was to happen, we spent two nights in Mumbai recovering from all the wedding events. A perk about India? You get to stay at a five-star properties for the price of two or three star places. We were so spoiled here!
You bet we took advantage of the pillow menu. Body pillow, where have you been all my life?
Since we weren't taking ANY chances of getting "Delhi belly" (aka travelers diarrhea) , we stuck with hotel restaurants and home cooked meals from friends. Even some of the locals told us to stay away from street foods and unsanitary restaurants. One guy that grew up in India and then later moved to the States said he had issues with the local food and had a few doctor visits. Yikes! I also became vegetarian for the duration of our trip. It's very hard to get certain meats in certain parts of India and it's also not regulated. With the vegetarian selection so vast- it wasn't very hard finding meals to be both satisfying and fulfilling.
