Travel resumes after a pregnant pause ( quite literally.. )

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! There is something about the hills… Is it the cobbled roadways?Is it the fact that you can savour on yummy food at anytime during the…

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…

My list of Essentials , each time I travel!

As a family we are rational travelers – we check the weather forecast and pack accordingly, thus showcasing our blind trust on the Meteorological Department! However, in the past our trust has been challenged! We realized that something is ‘essential’ only when we missed packing it! Having learnt from my past mistakes( read :blunders) ,…

Turkish Delight

LONG POST ALERT ! Bright city lights , roads bustling with people, a slight nip in the air and moderate traffic jams – Istanbul seemed like just any other city at first, but little did we know what this city had in store for us. After a quick stop at our hotel ,we set off…

Camping on the banks of River Kali!!

We had been planning a trip to one of the jungle lodges in Karnataka for the longest time. Almost at the last minute my travel partner ( read as husband:-) ) and I zeroed in on a Jungle lodge situated on the banks of the majestic River Kali. This river was touted to be ‘the…

Phuket – sun, sand and fun!

With a resolve to undo the sin committed years ago, we booked ourselves an entire vacation just there! Phuket is synonymous…

Going on holidays is a wonderful break however, planning the logistics for a holiday may not always be the most fun thing to do . To save ourselves from this, resorts provide us a single stop luxury holiday getaway. It’s not always the adventure and the exploring that define a holiday, but just lazing by…

Meghalaya – a bit of heaven on earth!!

About six months ago, one of my friends happened to share a picture of the famous double decker living root bridges and it looked spectacular and was something I had never seen anywhere before. That very day my husband and I decided that this has got to be our next holiday destination. So we googled and…

Hidden treasures – Alwar

Travel rejuvenates.. Travel is cathartic .. Travel is bliss!! After a busy week at work and at home, we always look forward to an exciting weekend. Not always is it possible to plan a weekend getaway but the times that we do , we have hit bulls’s eye! One such weekend was when we decided…

Ayubowan Srilanka!!!

Amidst the huge pile of laundry (courtesy : vacation😂) waiting to be done , I couldn’t resist penning down my thoughts about the beautiful vacation we just had at Srilanka!! ‘World’s best things come in small packages ‘- this holds good not just for people but countries as well! A small country but leaps ahead…
