Trip to Diu, Gujarat – India!

Hey guys! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted more pictures from my trip here in India. Unfortunately my Macbook had crashed on me and had to wait about 2 weeks to get it back… But, the great thing is that IT’S FINALLY BACK and I’ll be able to share all of the beautiful pictures/videos I’ve taken during my trip to Gujarat, India.

We went to Diu, Gujarat on the weekend of the 7th (also the weekend before my birthday on July 12th). It was a holiday trip since teachers/staff did not have to be at school that Saturday for any meetings, trainings, or workshops.

“Diu is a town in Diu district in the union territory of Daman and Diu, India. It was the location of the pivotal Battle of Diu in 1509 between Portugal and a combined force of Turkey, Egypt, Venice, the Republic of Ragusa (now known as Dubrovnik) and the Sultan of Gujarat, Mahmud Begada. The town of Diu lies at the eastern end of Diu Island, and is known for its fortress and old Portuguese Cathedral. It is also a fishing town. It is the tenth least populated district of India” – Wiki

Diu is a very popular tourist attraction during the months of September to May. I believe we were very lucky to have gone in July because it was still busy around the city and I can imagine the great amount of crowds walking everywhere during those months. Though I can actually understand why it’s such a huge attraction! I had such an amazing time visiting the city, eating good food, spending time on the beach, and looking at the beautiful sitings. The 20hr trip, was well worth it!
