So my first experience of Indian trains was surprisingly OK! We had the sleeper carriage all to ourselves so it was nice and quiet and, more importantly, cool.

We stayed longer in Agra than intended due to the scorching heat – it was hitting at least 40C every day! On the first day of our 5 day visit, we went to Agra Fort, then took a cycle rickshaw to Meghab Park at the back of the Taj Mahal to get the famous sunset view. Later in our stay, we of course visited the beautiful Taj and it lived up to the expectations 🙂

Whilst in Agra, we caught up with a lovely Belgian couple whom me originally met in Udaipur. They were on the first stop of a year-long Round the World trip! Although India is such large country, you almost seem to be guaranteed to bump into somebody you know!
