Most of the time when Deb and I travel it is to see the country and meet the people. But we always seem to stumble across crazy festivals that never cease to amaze us.

From Thaipusam in Malaysia to the 500yr anniversary of the town of Hampi in India, we seem to have the knack of being in the right place at the right time. Below are just 5 of the crazy festivals we have been lucky enough to experience. Hope you enjoy.
