Sunrise in Rishikesh

I never stayed at this hotel as its one of the most expensive places to stay in Rishikesh. It does make a nice view when walking over the bridge though. One note when taking photos on this bridge watch out for monkeys. They like to steal anything they can.

I have now left Rishikesh. I was sad to see it go not only because I had a really great time there, but because the trip to Hyderabad was so freaking painful. From late cabs, to nightmare bureaucracy and security in the Dehradun airport. Uncomfortable flights, Spicejet is cheap but there is a reason why. The ridiculous system for cabs.

About the cabs. So I use an app called Ola. It’s like Uber. Actually I have used both Uber and Ola and they have the same issues. The driver will accept the ride, then not actually come to pick you up. This has happened 4 times for me now. I have to actually call them and tell them I am still waiting. Apparently they get to charge you for waiting time. So the longer it takes to pick me up the more they can charge. So I decide to find the cab. Every cabbie on the way says that they are the one that I was talking to. Fortunately Ola does send the license plate for the car or else I would never have found it.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
