There’s more than one way to go from point A to point B. And in travels, we always open to try the routes we never took before. So, when we went to Dapoli a few weeks ago, we decided to take another route to come home. That way, we got to see more places, and

We slept soundly on the third night of the Himalayas trek. I woke up about 5.30 am. Thanks to Nitesh for his amazing foot massage last night, my feet felt so light. He is a multi-talented guy. The warm water treatment suggested by our guides also helped in bringing us to our feet again. I

From the previous post of my Himalayas trek series, you knew we spent our tiring first night at Daraya Bugiyal. Sleeping in the tent was interesting. Sometime past midnight, I stirred up hearing the heavy wind and Rejeev saying “The tent is flying away. Hold on to it.” Being half awake, I only helped catching one

The trek in the Himalayas has opened my eyes to the northern cultures of India. I’ve realized how little I know about them. There are so many new things to see and try.

Himalaya Trek day 2 Pic 1

I was awake at 5.00 am, and it was quite bright outside, ready for the Himalayas trek. Though the sun reached the mountains early, it was still cold, somewhat like a winter morning in Pune, about 10 degree C. By the time I finished my morning routines, everyone was awake. Our host served some warm

4 years ago, when Yaseen was just 9 months old, we had a fun road trip from Kerala to Bangalore. On our way, we found this peaceful, scenic lake and decided to make a quick stop. We were one of the few groups wandering in that tranquil sanctuary. It was raw, silent and beautiful. I’ve remembered

I just came back from an amazing trek in the Himalayas with my colleagues. It was a great, one of a kind experience. Going up 4000 meters on the snow-clad mountains, spending 10 days wandering on top of the world, for me, it is life changing and exciting. Just that leaving my family alone at

I’m an outdoor person, but now-a-day, when I look out my window I feel so discouraged. The weather is horrible. It’s so hot and dry. So, I’m feeling trapped because it’s so hard to find a place to hang out in the summer. I want a forest full of big trees, a big lake with
