Amber Fort

While we were visiting Jaipur my friend Emma and I decided to take a morning trip to Amber, just outside of the city to wander through the Amber Fort. We grabbed an early morning tuk tuk and arrived to the village of Amber just in time for a warm India breakfast in a locals spot - no sign on the door, just the scent of spices cooking and bread being turned. 

We opted to walk to the top of the fort, however many tourists jump aboard a heavily painted elephant and process to the top of the hill. While we walked our way up we were passed by many colorful animals and excited tourists traveling through India. 

We walked around for the fort for several hours, turning this way and that way until we made it to the top of the fort structure which allowed up stunning views of Jaipur and the surrounds!

Jaipur

Jaipur is the largest city and capital of the Rajasthan region in India. While we stayed on the outskirts of the city center we could still feel a sense of the hustle and bustle in Jaipur. Motorbikes, tuk tuks and bicycles zoomed around us as we explored the Old Quarter and chatted with locals selling their goods on the sidewalks. Jaipur is known as the 'Pink City' - many of the buildings in the Old Quarter were painted a shade of Pink to welcome guests visiting Jaipur!
