Work and Travel India.


by Markus Gebauer

Standing on 14.000 feet, waiting for the sunrise to appear over the Himalayan Mountains.

I reflected where I was a week ago. Back then, I wore a suite in front of 15 students at one of Indias huge IT-Satellite towns close to New Delhi. Now, strapped on the back of a Royal Enfield, my uniform will come to rest for the next 3 weeks while driving deeper into the mountain massive.

India is a country of diversity and during my 3-month work and travel experience, I had the chance to explore its facets. From 5-star business hotels to dirty windowless homestays. From continental breakfast buffets to daily Nan and Dal.

My journey took me from the pulsating metropolis of Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad to the remote villages in Himachal Pradesh and Rajasthan, that seem to be like lost in time. From the beginning, I was fascinated by the country's stunning landscapes and fascinated culture. Living in the countryside seems to be so simple compared to the permanent stress of the city, and I always took the chance to escape from it as often as possible.

India is one of the countries that requires lots of time to be truly discovered. Hopefully I'll get another chance to see it again soon.
