I have started my journey in Delhi for three days. I am in Rishikesh right now at an ashram. Tomorrow I will go to Haridwar for one night and then take a train to Agra, then to Jaipur and then to dharamsala to take a Buddhist meditation course for ten days :)

Good. So how's your journey going on?? You have a long to go my friend. Beware of the Thefts on your journey From Haridwar To Agra and when you come down to Jaipur the pink city it will be little bit hazy and do try the local food out there i.e Daal Baati (spciy) and then go on to try the Indian Dessert Ghevar.Be in Touch My Friend.Enjoy Your Trip

Thank you! I'm loving the Indian desserts gulab jamun and kaju katli, so I will try that dessert. I will be careful on the train, I don't plan on leaving my seat the whole time.

There are a lot of other destination all around France. These are just a few and are the most visited ones. You can always look into them all online and decide for yourself wherever you want to go. If these destination still can’t fit on your tight budget but you still want to travel all over France, then maybe you should then take a look at these money saving tips. In this way, though you are on a tight budget, you can still roam around France, enjoy and explore.

1.Have a picnic than eating at a restaurant. Food is one of your basic needs, especially when traveling. It is undeniable that France, especially Paris, has the most mouth-watering food and delicious wines in the world. But if you are on a tight budget, you can have a picnic! France is also known for cheese and bread. So if you want to save money for your whole trip, go to the market, buy bread, cheese, meat and fruits and go on a picnic. You can have your meal for less than $10USD.
2.Take a train than a taxi. The easiest way to go around France is through taking a train. And most importantly, it is also the cheapest. Try to avoid the high-speed trains for they will cost you a lot. Enjoy the local transit so you can also take time to see beautiful places while you ride the train.
3.Drink wine than water. Believe it or not, wine is cheaper than water in France. Though you don’t have to miss drinking water regularly. Drink wine while you are in France, one quality bottle of wine will cost you at least $3USD!
4.Do it than buy it. As said earlier, French restaurants are very expensive. If you want to eat any French cuisine it is a lot better to buy ingredients at the market than just going into a restaurant to order. This way you can experience cooking French cuisine. Also be sure to ask around where to buy the best ingredients in the market.
5.Skip the clubs and drink wine. Drinking on clubs will cost you a lot. Other than the expensive entrance fee you will also be charged with overpriced drinks at the club. So unless you don’t want to loose $100USD or more with just one blink then skip clubbing. Instead? Drink wine with friends and play your own music, it’s a lot cheaper.
