The sound of Jaipur in the night

The sound of Jaipur in the night

Truth is stranger than fiction and Bollywood can be everywhere, when you travel in India –

I stopped by to photograph this beautiful building, the palace called Jal Mahal in Jaipur, which was surrounded by water, together with its beautiful reflections, and fantastic singing was echoing from somewhere. You can hear it in this short video, the music playing in the background.

Later on, back in Finland, I made a short video of some of the photographs I took from Jaipur and composed my own music to the background. You can see that video and some of the visual delights of Jaipur, the Pink city in India here.

From the beaches of Gokarn

From the beaches of Gokarn

It’s been a few years since my last visit to Gokarn. Although Gokarn is more of a place for pilgrims, it is still ok to visit there, if you’re interested in experiencing a more traditional Indian village.

Gokarn is a charming place, because it is not too modern. Some say, it is like a genuine India experience. It is located near Goa, in the neighboring state Karnataka, but it is still totally different from Goa, although you do get to see something similar in the inlands of Goa, far from the touristic areas.

This short video here gives you a short glimpse of the main beach in Gokarn, namely Gokarn Beach. There are the pilgrims and all the locals, tourists and fishermen together on this beach. But don’t expect to see sunbeds nor bikinis. Instead, from the nearby hills you will find three more beaches, namely Kudley Beach, Om Beach and Paradise Beach. These beaches are populated with Western tourists with mostly hippie mindset.

These photos attached here were taken in 2007, and originally published eleven years ago in January 2007 in Indivue’s blog. Back in those days, in 2007, the memory cards of digital cameras were not very big, some 2Mb maybe, and they got full very quickly. I remember there was one small shop in Gokarn, where they shifted your photos to a dvd, so that a traveller could have more space in one’s camera and take more photos. Then again, back in the guesthouse, one had to shift the photos to a computer and from a computer to a memorystick, and then go with the memorystick to an internet cafe in order to blog the photos. That’s how the blogging in India was back in 2007.

Trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower (video preview)

Trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower (video preview)

Today’s video comes from Paris and from the most famous sight in there – the Eiffel Tower. I shot this video to remember and to show what it’s like to travel up there to the top of the Eiffel Tower. And then again coming back down on the ground. You know the elevator inside the Eiffel Tower does not take you quite to the top. This means you have to walk the last stairs all by yourself.

But it’s really worth all the cost and the trouble going up to the Eiffel Tower. With the trouble I mean queueing during a hot day and travelling high up in a small elevator. Travelling together in a small place with all them unknown people whose language you don’t even know to speak. Watching the ground beneath you reciding knowing there is no turning back. But the view from there, from the top of the Eiffel Tower, is really something. Spectacular, unforgettable and worth all the cost and trouble, like I said. And then again, in the night time, when you are walking the Parisian streets in the centre, the view of the lights in the Eiffel Tower really bring about something indescribable for a tourist.

You might also be interested in the article I wrote in Finnish about the Best sights in Paris. It is telling about the best hotels, restaurants and Indian restaurants in Paris also, back in 2017. The interesting point to be made was that an Indian restaurant in Paris, for which Indivue would give five stars for the taste, was only at 12159th position in TripAdvisor. – Makes you wonder how good food there might be in the first 100 restaurants in Paris. Maybe this is the reason why they had to invent them Michelin stars. See also the video of the Best sights in Paris.

But back to this video – After watching it, this short video about the trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower and back on the ground, you will get to see more YouTube videos about the Eiffel Tower and things related. So enjoy your visual adventure and do subscribe Indivue’s YouTube -channel for more travel & art -videos to come!

Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge (video preview)

Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge (video preview)

Back in 2005, the trip from Mumbai airport to Colaba, in the Southern Mumbai, took some one hour, when you had to drive through the whole city of Mumbai. Although the trip through the city was a very thrilling experience for a first timer, it was still nice to experience this Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge which they had built on the sea, to make the travelling in Mumbai a lot easier and much faster, ten years later – In 2015 a taxi from Mumbai airport to Colaba took more than half an hour less of your time. Less than thirty minutes outside rush hour.

During night time this Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge is lit nicely and you can enjoy the night time view along with the traffic lights and skyscraper lights from hotels like Taj Lands End in Bandra. This is a very much recommendable sight during night, I must say. Unfortunately this hotel did not have a roof top terrace with a restaurant – That would have really crown it all.

Day time you can visit the near by Bandra Fort and park and then watch the sun set in the horizon, behind the Arabian Sea. Sunset on the rocks in Bandra Bandstand will look something like in the video you will find in the link.

Find a short video about Bandra in Mumbai including the before mentioned nighttime view of Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge and Bandra Fort here. The music and photos in the video are by Indivue.

View over Rome from Castel Sant’Angelo (video)

View over Rome from Castel Sant’Angelo (video)

This video was shot from the top of Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, Italy, during the massive heats of the month of July.

Castel Sant’Angelo gives you a splendid view over the city of Rome, and it is located by the river Tiber, next to the famous Roman bridges. It is also near the Vatican City.

Castel Sant’Angelo has a small entrance fee, and it works as a museum. I would recommend to visit there at least because of the views. See what else I would recommend from the article ”Art and Traveltips for Rome”!
