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 […]

Kanyakumari

Bharatha bhooshira mandira sundari bhuvana manohari, Kanyakumari The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Kanyakumari is the beautiful song from Kannada movie Upasane, describing the southernmost tip of India. In Kanyakumari two moments are priceless and both have to do with the sun […]

Thiruvananthapuram

It suddenly feels as if I took a long break from writing. This post is long overdue as it’s already been a good 3 months since I visited the capital of the God’s own country. Our first stop in Thiruvananthapuram was Kovalam, a crescent-shaped beach town by the Arabian […]

Rohtang Pass

Rohtang Pass at an altitude of 13050 ft is the third highest Himalayan mountain pass I have been to! Out of all the places I visited in Himachal, this one had some hitches and glitches. Here’s why… National Green Tribunal has restricted a total number of vehicles going […]

Solang Valley

A few kilometers off Manali, on the way to Rohtang, you know you have reached Solang Valley when you see lush greenery, snow-capped peaks and colourful paragliding chutes against picturesque backdrop. Solang Valley is well-known for adventure sports. I have all sorts of adventure sports to check off […]

Manali

Manali was our next destination after Shimla and the most important place on our Himachal tour itinerary. We had planned 3 days of sightseeing and adventure in and around the hill station. It took us more than 6 hours to reach Manali from Shimla. The river Beas keeps […]
