Photo Blog – Sunset in the Thar desert

Hello everyone, hope you all loved our post on getting a glimpse of Rajasthan through our itinerary. Rajasthan blew our mind with its beauty and we captured the memories through some beautiful photographs. For a change, we wanted to let our pictures do the talking in this post instead of our words. What do you say? 🙂 All pictures were shot in Sam Sand dunes in the Thar desert which is around 40km from Jaisalmer in Rajasthan. We spent a…

Getting your first taste of Rajasthan – Itinerary & Planning

Getting your first taste of Rajasthan – Itinerary & Planning

Being South Indians, the north of India has always been a fascination for us – the extreme colours and scintillating textiles, innumerous palaces & forts, the free spirited dancing and rich food are too good to resist! So when we had a week off in the midst of our India trip, we planned our hearts out to visit one of the most colourful states of all – Rajasthan – the land of the Kings! We had only 6 days and…

Honeymooning in Kenya – Itinerary & planning

Honeymooning in Kenya – Itinerary & planning

Most couples dream of a beach honeymoon, maybe some fantasize about romancing in Europe and then there is a teeny tiny group which dares to be unconventional. And we belong to the third category, obviously. To go on a wildlife safari had always been a dream for us, and when the chance presented itself for a week long honeymoon, that was the first thing that came to our mind. Oh, how glad we are to have made that decision! A…

Road tripping 3500 km in Alpine Dreamland!

Road tripping 3500 km in Alpine Dreamland!

If you had a choice, what will you choose, Dragons or a mundane four wheeled machine? Of course, Fire breathing dragons 😉 (No, I am not talking about the one beyond the wall) 😉 Now, let me rephrase this question to suit our normal human lives: 3500kms – Fly or Drive? Any sane person would have thought long and hard about it but not us. We practically had no time after my visa arrived and a couple of days later…

Travel the world draped in Six Yards…

Travel the world draped in Six Yards…

In the last few months, my travel wardrobe got a major upgrade. Something that I never once imagined that I would do, happened! From a complete dummy, I became a semi-expert and felt a joy unlike any other… Ofcourse I am talking about Sarees here 🙂 A saree is one of the traditional wears of India worn by millions of women everyday, be it while taking care of their home or running a country! Growing up, I saw my mom…

Midnight hike up Kawah Ijen, the heavenly volcanic crater

Midnight hike up Kawah Ijen, the heavenly volcanic crater

Who doesn’t love to see a turquoise blue lake, shining with radiance when the first rays of sun descends on it? When we first saw pictures of Kawah Ijen or Ijen crater as it is commonly known, we were head over heels in love too. So when Singapore Airlines offered a steal deal to fly to Surabaya we immediately grabbed our tickets for the long weekend. Then came the blow! The hike to see this beautiful landscape is supposed to…

When you don’t know Swimming and still go Canyoning!

When you don’t know Swimming and still go Canyoning!

I am back to my room with muddy shoes, wet clothes, my legs bruised and my calves  killing me, but I swear this was the most AMAZING day of my life. I have never felt so alive and kicking. So let me set the clock back and tell you the story from the very beginning. This is one of the rare long weekends in Vietnam, so I grabbed my stuff and headed out to the central highlands of Vietnam, the mesmerizing…

My Color Me Run experience, the Ups and Downs!

My Color Me Run experience, the Ups and Downs!

The last time I played Holi and got dunked in so much color was a long time ago, in the North Indian neighborhood of my tiny hometown while growing up. This Saturday I relived this experience in the streets of Saigon with 6,853 other people in the widely popular Color Me Run event!! It was incredibly refreshing and fun to be like kids for a day and enjoy creating a mess 😀 Though the heat was a bit too much…

Ingenious bamboo trains in Battambang , Cambodia

Ingenious bamboo trains in Battambang , Cambodia

One of my spontaneous, on-the-fly decision when in Cambodia was to visit a small river-side town called Battambang, around 5 hours journey from Siem Reap.  I will highly recommend Battambang to anyone who wants to experience a real slice of the rural Cambodia. Considerably less touristic than Siem Reap (which is literally flooding with tourists in every nook and corner), quieter and beautiful in a subtle way – Battambang was absolutely the right way to finish my 7 day Cambodia…

On being an Indian girl and traveling solo

On being an Indian girl and traveling solo

When I first took the decision to go ahead with my travel plans to Cambodia, even when I couldn’t find suitable travel companions, I spent hours and hours reading about solo traveling. I found great advice from various stellar travelers but almost all of them were westerners. There are just so many blogs narrating the stories of girls from the west traveling the world solo! But I could hardly find any Indian women among them. And rightfully so! A girl…
