A Day on A Boat

sun, breeze, ocean, love

To end our Bali blog posts series (see posts 1, 2 & 3), what can be better than to write of the day we spent on a boat, out in the ocean? It’s an experience we highly recommend. When your bones are tired from visiting temple after temple, or from partying too hard, a day… Continue reading A Day on A Boat

Bali Basics

Tanah Lot Temple

Before we headed to Bali, we had a lot of confusion about its geography & location. Was it an island? Was it a part of Indonesia? How big was it? Blame it on ignorance. And, there’s no better antidote for ignorance than travel. Once we’d been there, many contacted us when they were planning their… Continue reading Bali Basics

Beat The Heat! – 2

favorite, photo, sun, woods, nature

A few folks reached out to us to know more about the three destinations we recommended in Part I to escape the Indian summer. Glad we could be of help! But, three destinations are inadequate for six months of the intense north Indian summer. So, we bring three more long weekend getaways from Delhi. All… Continue reading Beat The Heat! – 2

Beat the Heat!

jeolikot, village, kathgodam, nainital

Come April & the Sun starts its mercilessness on the hapless souls of the National Capital Region. Right till September, it becomes a matter of hot, very hot & unbearably hot. In these six months, at least one getaway is needed to cooler environs. Jeolikot morning enveloped in mist Aren’t we thankful that the Himalayas… Continue reading Beat the Heat!

Orchha – A Photo-log

Till we've our Betwa... We blogged about Khajuraho in our last post. Khajuraho is still a known name on the tourism circuit. Orchha is the real surprise! We ourselves came to know about Orchha when we were researching for our travel. Chhatris by the Betwa On our maiden trip, we spent a little less than… Continue reading Orchha – A Photo-log

KHAJURAHO – A PHOTO-LOG

Can't help falling in love...Nandi - the gate-guardian deity of Kailasa Madhya Pradesh must be the most underrated tourist destination in India. The centrally-located state has nature, heritage, & art. Yet, we neither hear much about it nor see family & friends visiting MP. We ourselves were oblivious of all that the state has to… Continue reading KHAJURAHO – A PHOTO-LOG

Masai Mara National Reserve – All The Practical Stuff!

When we began our research for the Masai Mara National Reserve, we found information to be scattered across the Internet. Climate information at one place, visa at another, what to carry at yet another… We made a mental note then itself that we would list down the useful bits at one place when we got… Continue reading Masai Mara National Reserve – All The Practical Stuff!

MASAI MARA TALES

For somebody who has grown up watching the nature & wildlife channels on television, the Masai Mara National Reserve was a must-have on the bucket list. Thus, when an ex-colleague, now working in Nairobi, asked us to come over, specially as the migration season was on, we did not have to think twice. It also… Continue reading MASAI MARA TALES

OUR MAGIC MOMENTS PRESERVED

... our love affair with this online photo service provider. Over the years, Zoomin has made even our ordinary photographs look excellent in print.

Cruising Along The Indian West Coast

2,500 KMS. Nine days. Three travelers. A Toyota Innova. & the Indian West Coast!

The Journey, The Traveler

It is not just about travel; it is also about the thoughts that rush to me when I travel...

The Land of Happiness – Part III

We are struck by the similarity between Bhutan and Scotland.
On curves, we feel we are on our way to Hogwarts. We will turn around the corner & there will be the Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft.
Sigh!

The Land of Happiness – Part II

It is on the way to Punakha that the King crosses us on a bicycle, His envoy following him.

While cars stop & hawkers stand up in respect, the King’s simplicity touches us...

The Land of Happiness – Part I

It has an idyllic setting; you can see the Sun rise behind the mountains, the village slowly coming to life, unpaved roads, greenery, calm & tranquil… There is nothing not to love.

If there is one place you should cover in Bhutan, it is this.
