Summer of Ups and Dawns

This summer came up with a different energy, ideas and aspirations for travel 😊. Summer of 2019….not 69. Destinations that I have been planning to visit forever, finally came to life and I paid my visit to these places. And today I will start with Ramgarh and Bhowali in Uttarakhand. Ramgarh is a small hill…

Seasons

Our planet Earth has blessed us with different seasons that we live through each year- autumn, fall, spring, summer, winter…all of which greatly impact our lifestyles. Our behavior and physical activities get affected too. We all go through different experiences in different seasons, so we have our favorite ones too. Seasons change with time, bringing…

Rush Hour And Memories: Singapore :)

Uncalled travel, lives up to everybody’s expectations, because they don’t give you time for any arrangements and setup (Thankfully, I rescued my wallet from buying never-ending duty-free chocolates for relatives, who never stop asking for them). Anyway, this was again in Singapore (the way they sing in unison, Singaaa-puraaa). Last I witnessed Christmas there, in…

Malang- Unleash the Madness

‘Malang’ is the title track of Mohit Suri’s film, ‘Malang- Unleash the Madness’, a romantic action (revenge) thriller, that was released in February 2020. The song was written by Kunaal Vermaa and Harsh Limbachiya, composed and sung by Ved Sharma, programmed and arranged by DJ Phukan & Akull who beautifully gave it an EDM texture….

Meraki Pahadi House – Run for Nature!

Travelling is always a good idea. I have been travelling to different places across India and internationally since 2014. Locally, Himachal Pradesh is my personal favourite destination. While Uttarakhand is my native place, I see myself more inclined to Himachal. There’s always a new respite of thought with it. However, just to get a little…

Rückkehrunruhe

The feeling of returning home after an immersive trip only to find it fading rapidly from your awareness—to the extent you have to keep reminding yourself that it happened at all, even though it felt so vivid just days ago—which makes you wish you could smoothly cross-dissolve back into everyday life, or just hold the…

Paris Vs New York

A beautiful gift book of a popular travel journal as told by a lover of Paris wandering through New York. When Vahram Muratyan began his online travel journal, Paris versus New York, he had no idea how quickly it would become one of the most buzzed-about sites on the Internet—it garnered more than a million…

The Experimental Journey

Life is an experimental journey undertaken involuntarily. It is a journey of the spirit through the material world and, since it is the spirit that travels, it is the spirit that is experienced. That is why there exist contemplative souls who have lived more intensely, more widely, more tumultuously than others who have lived their…

Royal & Romantic: Udaipur

Located within the Thar desert in Rajasthan, surrounded by Aravalli mountain ranges this historic town is an oasis of exquisiteness. This architectural forte in India is embraced by seven beautiful lakes and lavish royal dwellings. Udaipur, often referred to as The City of Lakes, has been ranked at the 10th position in the World’s Best…

The Ticket

It was when I was pregnant, working for the love of working, so much that I worked till the last trimester. I would commute by bus since the middle of my second trimester, as driving was a strain, rather I enjoyed sitting in peace listening to the Garbh Sanskar Mantra on Red FM sometimes. Purple…

From A Modest Mask To A Fashion Fad!

The pandemic has got millions of people worldwide locked down bringing with it a lot of warranted fear and panic. Also to accept that we don’t seem to be getting out of the clasp of this deadly virus any time soon makes us feel helpless and worried about our health, planning for times ahead. While…

To Travel is to Live

Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind. @anthonybourdain…

Trying Pins

There’s a seldom mentioned, exceptionally entertaining function on Pinterest which was rolled out in November 2016. I was pleasantly surprised having discovered this virtual gem at a particularly painful time in my life. This worthwhile distraction, together with another Pinterest favourite, namely ‘Art History Memes’, was a lifesaver in many ways. If you’re familiar with…

Aurangabad: Forever Agile

It was my love for artistic silk fabric (Paithani) which inspired me to visit a district called Aurangabad in Maharashtra, India. Here I perceived a blend of saga and innovation. I am yet to choose whether to call it a tourist destination or an industrial amalgamation. Paithan, located around 50 km from Aurangabad airport (Chhatrapati…
