We’ve heard it said that few countries in the world carve such a deep, lasting impression on a traveller as India does.  The rich beauty of the colors, smells, tastes, architecture, and land have us contemplating a trip in the near future.  Visiting India can offer a bewildering choice of experiences so we’ve asked Karilyn, an adventurer and family travel blogger, to share her post on the best places to visit in Delhi, India.  She, in fact lived there for almost a decade so we know we can trust her opinion on the matter!  Karilyn was also a guest on our podcast (listen here) where she tells us all about traveling with children, living in exotic far-off locations, and why she became a travel blogger.
