VLOG: Mumbai Adventures in India #FlyEmiratesFlyBetter

3 min read

We recently had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to Mumbai in partnership with Emirates Airline and in collaboration with Miss New Jersey USA 2017 Chhavi Verg in which we experienced their on-flight offerings, very helpful on ground services, and visited their training center to learn the ins-and-outs of the airline from their inception days.

But more than anything, this trip gave us the bonding experience of our life, it pushed our horizons creatively since this would be the first time our team vlogged an 8-day travel experience (coming soon), and helped us reconnect with India on another level while bringing #browngirlmag overseas.

India was everything you’d expect it to be — over-the-top loving grandparents, people from every walk of life and background hustling and bustling, insanely good street food, must-try Bollywood dance classes.

Best of all, we met #browngirls overseas at our mini lunch meet-up — something we’ve been dreaming to do forever.

Dubai was all about the sightseeing and travel but Mumbai was truly about connecting deeply with our motherland, its sweet people, the millions of emotions we felt, and the appreciation for the city’s hustle (which some say is more than New York City’s?!?).? ? – In the short 48 hours we had, we managed to make dear friends with our @emirates representative, @samidha_raul, savor all the food the @tajmahalmumbai hotel had to offer, spend quality time with @chhaviverg’s sweet family and grandparents, and have lunch with some amazing women I’ve had the pleasure of meeting via @browngirlmag — @shivani_bafna, @gopiengineer, @tricha.k, @wear.phera (thank you for the special gifts!!!).????And this trip would not have been complete without a visit to my dear friend Shilpa’s (@angeltrata) storefront in Bandra West, @theclothingrental — photos to come. ?? Having chai with the one and only @anitadongre and @dongreyash hours before taking off will always be cherished.?And visiting India isn’t complete without shopping so squeezing that in was necessary (obvi). ? – More highlights to come via @browngirlmag. Until then, New York I’m ready for ya. ?? #flyemiratesflybetter

We left with our hearts full and couldn’t be more grateful for this time.
