After calling Cheryl to announce the good news, I asked her a few questions about the upcoming trip:

Congratulations! How do you feel about winning the private tour of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur?

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm still in shock, but I've finally stopped weeping tears of joy. First off, thanks for your patience as you listen to me cry tears of joy over the phone. I'm beyond excited that I won the Golden Experience Giveaway! A dream come true.

Why do you want to visit India?

I can't wait to experience the local culture and the sights, sounds, smells, and food. I'm a vegetarian whose favorite animal is a cow, so I figure that I'll fit right in. I've watched so many movies about India, but I didn't think I'd ever get to see this beautiful country in person.

As this trip is for two guests, do you know who will be your travel companion?

My husband Sean and I are perpetual travel buddies. I'm traveling solo to Scotland on a study abroad program next month and poor Sean is so jealous. Winning this contest and taking him to India should smooth things over nicely.

What are you most looking forward to experiencing in India?

That's hard to narrow down, but the opportunity to eat with a local family, the elephant ride to Amber Fort, and the sunset visit to the Taj Mahal are at the top of my list. Thank you, Sodha Travel, for making one of my biggest dreams come true!


We are so excited for you, Cheryl, and look forward to hosting your enchanting Indian experience! Remember, Sodha Travel is giving away three more trips in the next year, including Kerala and Nepal, so be sure to stay connected and follow us on social media! YOU could be the next winner!
