Having fulfilled drinking, dancing and partying in Goa in our previous encounters, my friend and I decided it was now time to explore its tranquil side. 

We boarded a midnight train from Mumbai which would get us to Goa the following afternoon. To our surprise, we were greeted with splendid gree…

Where To Eat - Hampi, Karnataka

You don't expect a place like Hampi to delight your taste buds. A region which seems still underdeveloped to cope with the tourist frenzy.

As you arrive in Hampi, you'll notice many shacks similar to Goa. The difference being, I've never quite had a good meal in Goa YET. Probably because I'm a ve…

The Mysterious Boulder Town - Hampi, Karnataka

I was always intrigued looking at pictures of Hampi. How the hell did so many rocks stack themselves up without falling apart, I wondered. The place seemed to have certain mysteriousness to it. I couldn't wait to be there. So when my friend asked me to join one fine long weekend, I jumped at the opp…

When You Get Bored Of Mumbai, Head To Pune

I'm in a love/hate relationship with my own city. Loved by many, Mumbai, however, has not much to offer for travelers. The food, nightlife is good but apart from that, there is not much to explore in the city due to overcrowding and traffic.

Although Mumbai is a great place to have a base for in…

First Hostel Experience - Zostel Gokarna

I had refrained from choosing hostel as a travel accommodation for the longest time. It just didn't seem to match my personality. Although I'm not really an introvert, I enjoy having the luxury of my personal space.

Hostels provide you with budget accommodation where you share dorms and some comm…

Where To Eat - Udaipur, Rajasthan

My biggest motivation to travel to Udaipur was the food. I had not been to the state of Rajasthan before and Rajasthani cuisine majorly consists of dry food items which are my personal favorites. So more than visiting the palaces and temples, I was looking forward to my meals in Udaipur.

Udaipur, Rajasthan - Quaint Old Town

When I think of Udaipur, I think of narrow winding lanes. I think of Haveli-esque houses perched on the streets. I think of royalty from the history books. I think of majestic palaces and its architecture. And how can I forget the delicious vegetarian cuisine? 

Udaipur is a visual delight for…

Why You Need To Climb The Sigiriya Rock In Sri Lanka

If you know me you know how much I refrain from arduous physical activity. Even the latest shift as a traveler has hardly changed me. My peak high of any trip is when I'm leisurely plopped on a sunbed at the beach reading a book. And I want the time to stop. But it never does and so while planning S…

My Sri Lankan Trail

Sri Lanka might seem like a small country to cover all parts in a single trip. But it's a vast expanse and you'll need at least a month. I just had a week for this trip. For my 6 nights / 7 days stint, I chose to explore 4 cities.

Make The Most Out Of Sri Lanka

When I booked my tickets to Sri Lanka, some of my friends and family were surprised by the choice. Why would someone want to travel to a country which is basically an extension of India, they thought. They were so wrong.

Plan Your Trip To - Bali, Indonesia

Bali is fairly a budget destination. The only thing probably that will end up costing you a bomb are the flight tickets. That too if you are flying from outside of Asia. If your port of entry in Indonesia is Bali, most of the countries are offered free visa stamp on arrival valid for 30 days.

Bali, Indonesia - So Much To Offer

Sitting at Mumbai's airport waiting to board my delayed flight to Kuala Lumpur, I was thinking about my final destination - Bali. Did I put in my two-month of research into what is a typical honeymoon destination? Has Bali reached its saturation point considering it is one of the top travel destinat…
