get to know me [1/5] movies: titanic

I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen or, who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you… to make each day count.

Devi Garh by Lebua, Udaipur, India

Frankly it’s astonishing that there aren’t more hotels like the Devi Garh by Lebua, Udaipur. Not because 18th-century palace hotels are a dime a dozen in India, certainly they aren’t, but because the contrast between the faded majesty of the exterior and the sparkling modernity of the interiors is so striking.

Beautiful turquoise and gold murals illustrating the Ragmala and Ras Lila stories lining the walls of the Chitrashala, built by Rao Umed Singh in the 18th century, located inside the Garh Palace of Bundi
