Holy samosas! You would win a trip to India, one of the world’s oldest civilizations, land of the Taj Mahal, birthplace of four world religions including Hinduism and Buddhism, and home to the world’s largest democracy. Most Indians speak at least conversational English, making this exotic destination an easy place for North Americans and other English speakers to visit. India offers something for everyone—history, culture, architecture, adventure, Yoga, Ayurveda, flavorful cuisine, beaches, Himalayas, wildlife, shopping, festivals, music, dancing, and spirituality.

    Thanks for sharing, Colleen @TravelMamas! I was actually born in Mumbai, India back in 1969 when it was still called Bombay. My family and I left when I was only a couple months old. I haven’t been back since. I would love the opportunity to return and bring my Irish-American husband. We can both explore India together for the first time. What an experience that would be!
