Madhura

I am an Engineer from Bengaluru, India currently working in the US. Besides being an Engineer who loves programming, I have a huge appetite for good reads and love travelling at leisure. I document my travel escapades to share my experience and record many beautiful memories made in stunning locations.

New Hampshire

Unplanned trips are fun. While I was figuring out a place to see the fall foliage, a friend invited me to her home in Connecticut and suggested we travel to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. In less than 12 hours I was at her place, and the […]

Washington, D.C.

Recently, I made a quick trip to Virginia to visit a dear friend. A 4.5-hour bus ride from Port Authority NYC took me to Union Station, DC. You may as well drive or ride Amtrack or fly into DC, depending on your proximity. Union Station is a transportation […]

New York City – Part 3

I just love reading books and always enjoyed going to libraries in my hometown. After moving to the US, I enquired a coworker about libraries in our county. Seeing the interest, she suggested I should visit the library in New York whenever I get a chance. I did […]

Philadelphia

Philly was a surprise. I liked it right from the moment I set my foot. On arriving at 30th Street late in the evening, walking past the Amtrak building and the grand SEPTA station, Market Street and Rittenhouse Square to Waverly Street where my friend lives, I came […]

New York City – Part 2

After my first visit to the “City” (The locals don’t call it NYC or New York City, it’s just City and I have got their lingo now) 😉 I realised it’s only wise to plan multiple visits. For the City is far too big and diverse for a […]

Niagara

There’s a lot to see in the USA. Some of the best stuff is known only to those willing to invest the time to get there. In the world of heavily visited tourist attractions, whether for the history, nature, or marvel of human engineering, certain places are worth braving the […]

Thousand Islands

One of the best travel experience is discovering a place of extraordinary beauty that you had never known. Thanks to my friend who planned this trip, my first ever to an archipelago! I had done zero research this time, and all the knowledge I gathered was from the […]

New York City – Part 1

“If I can make it here, I”ll make it anywhere…” Moving to the land of opportunity was not on a whim. My decision to move was based solely on pursuing my career. Finding a place to live, setting up a home all by myself alongside busy work schedules, […]

Hyderabad

I was visiting Hyderabad on a business trip and it’s highly unlikely I’m in a new place and don’t explore! I wanted to make the most of whatever little time I had off work hours and decided to visit the MUST see places from a plethora of ‘must see’ […]

Ranadheera Kanteerava Park

Nanda boulevard – my most favourite road to pass by day or night, gets a new landmark; a park named after Kanteerava Narasaraja Wadiyar I, located near South End Circle. The Garden City of India, Namma Bengaluru abounds with parks, which is a common knowledge. RV Road itself is […]

Kalimpong/Darjeeling

It was a totally unplanned trip, thanks to the unfavourable weather in North Sikkim, we had to find alternatives to spend the last three days of our vacation and we chose the Gorkhaland. Driving through NH 31A which winds along the banks of the river Teesta, it took […]

Sikkim

I always prefer mountains over beaches and I had never been to North East. It was a long-standing dream to visit this mountainous state, especially after reading about it on several blogs. Sikkim is a border state in North-East India and is flanked by Nepal to its Northwest, Bhutan […]
