Chasing the hills, the winds and the chills kind of a video..

Chasing the sunshine kind of picture blog…..

Given the current gloomy, wet, windy weather in Gurgaon, I am considering moving to a place where SUMMER NEVER ENDS…. I will revisit this thought when the sun is beating down! A quick 30 second #throwback to all the beaches and waterfalls I could think off!

The birthplace of Ruskin Bond, holiday home of Khushwant Singh .. I knew I had to write a blog well enough that corroborated the literary legacy of this place- Kasauli!

Animals, Travel and us!

A casual chat about my love for animals with a colleague/ friend on instagram this afternoon made me think and reflect. I realized that animals were an integral part of almost all our trips. We either went to national parks to visit them , we bonded with the pets on the properties we stayed in…

As a family we are rational travelers – we check the weather forecast and pack accordingly, thus showcasing our blind trust on the Meteorological Department!
