Silent Valley National Park

Silent Valley Kerala 21

Last time I was in Kerala in December, I visited Silent Valley National Park, an undisturbed botanical paradise in the South-Western Ghats rain forest and tropical moist evergreen forest in India. Silent Valley is located in the Nilgiri Hills, Palakkad District of Kerala. The name Silent Valley was formed because of absence of the noise

Dubare Elephant Camp

Dubare Elephant Camp 7

When we decided to do the road trip to the South of India which stretches over 3 states for over 2 weeks in December, an elephant camp was never a part of the itinerary. But this is how we travel. We never follow any plan even though it was created by us. It’s amazing how

Driving from Harnai to Pune

Drive from Anjarle to Pune Map

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

Day 4 Himalayas Trek Pic 1.1jpg

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

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

Pookode Lake

Pookode Lake 13

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

Update from the Farm December 2011

How spicy is our lives if I say we are in chili business? The spiciness doesn’t feel torturing but so pampering and comforting. I couldn’t imagine living a day without chili. My curry is red, my chutney is hot, and my stir fry is pungent, everything needs a generous proportion of chilies. Our farm in Thailand

How to Prepare and Manage Kids in Your Hiking Trip

Before my son was born, I was so worry about changes I was unprepared for. I have always been living a free life and travel all the time. Having another fragile life who needed constant protection and care by my side could really slow me, I concerned. But when he’s finally came into my life,

Phu Foi Lom, Udon Thani, Thailand

There is no place felt more home for us like nature. We would lose ourselves in the wild watching the green leaves rustle against fresh air forever. Whenever we had such a hard week, we would escape to the long drive up and down the hills until we completely forgot the whole world behind. When

Bhaja Cave

When my husband turned the car off the highway to the smaller, rougher track, as the car jumped over the uneven path, it didn’t humor me. I was really skeptical about visiting another Buddhist cave since my 5 years ago visiting its brother cave, Karla cave, was not so present. I visited Karla cave 5 years ago
