Rachel Jones chose to immerse in this colourful insanity of cultures over everything else. She found a home on the beaches here and eventually met the love of her life somewhere in between all the extensive travel. According to her, she is a hippie in heels. A person who loves luxury and dressing up as much as a lazy lay on a beach. She loves to keep moving and enjoy the spectacle, that is India.
‘Hippie in Heels’ is a slice of Rachel’s life. Here she tells the world that it’s okay to live your dreams. And that to travel luxuriously you do not need a fortune in your bank accounts.

Rachel has written a whole guide on India. Still, the topmost attraction of her blog is her detailed illustration on the beaches of Goa and everything about it. So, give it a read already!
