Squeezing down a dusty alley in Agra, I was incredibly nervous to think that the Taj Mahal would fall in to the most unfortunate of travel categories. You see there is a moment, and most travellers will experience this at some point, when you finally lay eyes on a place that you have dreamed of.… Continue reading Is the Taj Mahal Worth the Hype?
