A Rainy Train Journey from Kerala to Pune

I honestly didn’t think that I would fall in love with a long journey which we’re packed in a compartment full of strangers. But often when we take a chance in life, an experience rewards us with something wonderful. Indian Railway operates a crucial system of transportation throughout the country. It’s like a circulatory system

Hampi Part 2: Hampi Main Tower, Virupaksha Temple and Matunga Hill

Hampi Part 2 Pic 1

My mind wanders back to our travel story from Hampi again. I remember the clear blue sky, the perfect summery day, and the mystique ruins we have visited. They make me miss travel. They make me wish I could just go on the roads nonstop and explore the world forever. If you missed my post on

Sunrise in Hospet, we were tucked in the blanket. Though we planned to leave for Hampi at 6 am, we thought we deserved to be pampered in the warm bed a little longer. I had such a big expectation today. We basically changed the ending of our journey and squeezing every Rupee we had left

A Night in Hospet

Hospet 1

While traveling to the beautiful ancient ruins, Humpi in Karnataka State of India, it was about 2pm when we didn’t know what to expect or where to stop for lunch. Yaseen was sleeping in the back seats, and I opened a pomelo we bought from the forest somewhere in Tamil Nadu. The citrus scent from

Breakfast in Bangalore before Road Trip

Breakfast & road trip 2

Sunset or sunrise? The same question I asked myself many times, and honestly I couldn’t remember my previous answers but I’m sure they’re not always the same. Sunset is seductive, impelling and relaxing… thinking about it making me wanna lit some candles and hide under the blanket. Sunrise is the new beginning, it’s fresh and

A Night in Bangalore

Bangalore Night 1

On our super busy road trip, we marked Bangalore on our map for one reason—to meet our old friends. Sadik used to live in Bangalore. In fact, his first job was in Bangalore. A few of his best friends still live there. Last time I was in Bangalore, Yaseen was still very tiny so we went

Driving form Kerala to Bangalore

Drive Kerala-Bangalore 6

“Where are we going next?” I asked when we threw the last backpack in the trunk of the car when Sadik put a sleepy Yaseen in the back seats. I didn’t really care where we’re heading. The journey itself has always been the best part of the trip. We’re going to Bangalore; that’s all I knew.

My Kind of South Indian Breakfast

South Indian Breakfast 9

It’s unfortunate how most people are under the impression that South Indian Breakfast is all about idli, vadas and dosa with sambar and coconut chutney. The truth is people in South India love breakfast. They indulge in them. It’s the second meal of the day after the early morning tea or coffee which was served
