The Sunlit Blues Of Seychelles

The Sunlit Blues Of Seychelles

Pic: Saw this beautiful deserted spot on one of our drives around the island! Earlier this year I visited the gorgeous island nation of the Seychelles, located in the Indian Ocean, off the eastern coast of Africa. This being my first time to any part of the African continent, I was understandably excited to see […]






Vientiane, Laos: Unforgettable Impressions

Vientiane, Laos:  Unforgettable Impressions

Pic: ” Vientiane” by Staffan Scherz is licensed under CC BY 2.0 On my way to Vietnam earlier this year, I made a short four day stop in the capital city of Laos, Vientiane. The city, to my surprise, was far more relaxed and easy going when compared with other capital cities in its neighbourhood. There […]






Dalat – A Perfect Hilly Getaway

Dalat – A Perfect Hilly Getaway

Pic: Sunset in Dalat Dalat is a small hilly town in southern Vietnam. As a relatively serene and calm Vietnamese city, it has a lot to offer visitors who are looking for a more relaxed pace of travel. With the centre of town being focused on a large lake, Dalat is an outdoor lover’s dream […]

Hoi An :  A Quaint, Quirky, Coastal Charmer

Pic: A tailoring boutique shop in one of the Old Town alleyways Hoi An is a historic port town and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Srinagar: Tips For Independent Travellers

Srinagar: Tips For Independent Travellers

The ethereal kashmir has been a bone of contention between two very unhappy neighbours. But its lush green meadows, snow filled valleys, warm kangris, hospitable people and delicious cuisine keep drawing travellers despite the tension. I did this trip independently with a friend without a tour package, guide or private taxi. Here are some useful […]






Thank You Kashmir!

Thank You Kashmir!

“Agar Firdaus bar rōy-e zamin ast, hamin ast-o hamin ast-o hamin ast.” If there is paradise on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here.That’s what Persian poet Amir Khusrau, said of Kashmir in 13th Century.Fast-forward to now and this is what I heard from friends and acquaintances: “There’s a constant sense of […]






Why I Shun ‘Women Only’ Travel Services

Why I Shun ‘Women Only’ Travel Services

I am a tad upset. I have just read about a hotel chain which is soon launching women-only hotels. I know I should be kicked about it, as I often travel solo, but I am not. Traditionally, our streets, roadside restaurants, public parks, pan- cigarette tapris have been a male bastion. While women remained housebound,  men traversed […]






The Dilemma Of Travelling Responsibly

The Dilemma Of Travelling Responsibly

I have always been a staunch supporter of travelling responsibly. I am not an expert in this field but in my own personal capacity, I do my bit. I try to keep the environment clean, carry my own water bottle, use public transport, support local community and propagate the idea through my blog and social media. But, there are times […]






A Trip To A Vineyard

A Trip To A Vineyard

Fields of swaying sugar-cane all around, interspersed with grazing herds of sheep, goats and cows, village men in all white neat dhoti-kurta and topi – these are the sights that welcomed in this part of rural Maharashtra. I was headed to Fratelli Vineyards in Motewadi, near Akluj (190 km from Pune). I had always thought of exploring […]






Calicut: Historical Gem Of Malabar

Calicut: Historical Gem Of Malabar

Zipping past me on my right were lush green fields, sleepy hamlets, rain washed forests with abundant open spaces while on my left, in contrast, was cramped nothingness with frozen unknown faces- each looking lost in their own reverie. Soon it started raining again and water started trickling in. I struggled to shut the rickety […]






Recipes From Goa

Recipes From Goa

These recipes were handed down to me by local families with whom I have had an opportunity to stay during my travels. While some were sincerely noted down on a paper, some were mere observations. And before these papers and memories crumble, here are some recipes for you to try. All these recipes were shared […]






Coonoor Unlimited

Coonoor Unlimited

Negotiating several hairpin bends on the way to the mountains after gorging on some authentic South Indian dishes with unlimited servings can be a daunting task. The roads though were extremely good which quickly reminded me of what I had left behind just a few hours back- the potholed roads of rain-soaked Mumbai. But here […]

* We create content that we believe in and identify with.
* We recognise that to create is always of more value than to berate.
*We critique without malice and arrogance.
