Thanks to the lousy day we had yesterday, we have been trying to escape mentally to the mountains. If you know us, we feel ourselves at home in the mountains. 2021 has been difficult for all of us but we have managed to cope on most of the days. However, occasionally, like yesterday, it getsContinue reading “10 Reasons Why We Love The Mountains”
So we’ve been wanting to do this for a LONG time but something or the other made us put it off. Finally, the Holi post of Incredible India made us bite the bullet! Isn’t that a treat to the eyes? So, here we go, with our version of ‘Doors of Rajasthan’!! Do you like it?Continue reading “Doors of Rajasthan”
A Brief Halt at a Unique Indian Temple On our Udaipur to Jodhpur stretch of the Rajasthan road trip, Pali (92 KMS from Ranakpur) turned out to be a spontaneous halt. We had known about a unique temple existing in Pali but when we found it right on the highway, we had to stop. TheContinue reading “Pali”
A half-day excursion to Sarnath “Buddham Saranam Gacchami. Dhammam Saranam Gacchami. Sangham Saranam Gacchami.” (“I go to the Buddha for refuge. I go to the Dhamma for refuge. I go to the Sangha for refuge.”) We have been drawn towards Buddhism for a long time now. As we visited places like Bhutan, Ladakh & Spiti,Continue reading “Buddham Saranam Gacchami”
Varanasi in 36 hours We still prefer referring to Varanasi as Kashi. The word ‘Kashi’ conjures up images of ancient India. After all, didn’t Mark Twain say, “Benares is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together.”? We made our way toContinue reading “SEEING BENARES IS DIFFERENT FROM EITHER HEARING OR READING ABOUT IT! *”
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”
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”
The questions still nagged our minds but we went ahead. & that was a life-changing decision for us…
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 had had our eyes set on the Rann of Kutch for quite a while.
We waited, impatiently, for the weekend to arrive.
How I want my life to be – being able to hit the road every alternate weekend. And it has happened in the past; so why not cross our fingers for the future too?
… a holiday is not about rest and rejuvenation alone. At different points in time, it is about adventure, luxury, new experiences, new cultures, new food and discovering each other. One such place which gave a new experience was Kishangarh…
Are you wondering what is so special about the Rashtrapati Bhavan?
any sight different from the usual is worth seeing…
Faith surely makes us do unimaginable things!
Excitement would be an understatement to describe my state of mind…
Santu was neither the schooling kinds nor was he keen to follow what his forefathers did…
Do I sound crazy if I say that I enjoy my time getting to the destination more than the destination itself?
Our very first post!
