I was nine when I went on my first school trip. More such school/ college trips happened when I was 15 & then 20. I traveled alone to attend my friends’ weddings in Kerala, Tamil Nadu & Uttar Pradesh when I was 25-26. Those same years, I visited Thailand & to Bordi with just myContinue reading “A Girl Who Travels”
Winter is a great time to go sightseeing in Delhi. Before winter 2019 begins, we felt we must finish blogging about our winter 2018 sightseeing! To begin, we post about Rajpath today. Ideally, we should come to the most important road in India to see the Republic Day Parade. But, thanks to our apprehension ofContinue reading “A Walk On The Rajpath”
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 dayContinue reading “A Day on A Boat”

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 theirContinue reading “Bali Basics”
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. AllContinue reading “Beat The Heat! – 2”
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. Aren’t we thankful that the Himalayas are a stone’s throw away?Continue reading “Beat the Heat!”
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. On our maiden trip, we spent a little less than a week exploring three destinations – Khajuraho, PannaContinue reading “Orchha – A Photo-log”
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 offer till we made our way there. On our maiden trip,Continue reading “KHAJURAHO – A PHOTO-LOG”
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 gotContinue reading “Masai Mara National Reserve – All The Practical Stuff!”
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 alsoContinue reading “MASAI MARA TALES”
The questions still nagged our minds but we went ahead. & that was a life-changing decision for us…
… our love affair with this online photo service provider. Over the years, Zoomin has made even our ordinary photographs look excellent in print.
2,500 KMS. Nine days. Three travelers. A Toyota Innova. & the Indian West Coast!
It is not just about travel; it is also about the thoughts that rush to me when I travel…
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.
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…
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.
