My Perfect Road Trip

Indian-Thailand road trip

My husband and I had been toying with the idea of our dream road trip for quite sometime now. Guess where we will be heading? It’s from his hometown to mine: from Calicut, Kerala, India to Khon Kaen, Thailand, a trip of our life time we’ve longed to make it happen some day. A trip like

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

Burans Flowers from the Himalayas

Burans flowers 1

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. Discovering Burans flower, for example, was one of the great experiences I had in this journey. We noticed Burans flowers from day one

Korigad Fort

Korigad Fort 1

Rainy Season is the most anticipating season of trekking in Maharashtra. The mountains here are usually bald and dried, but when the rain comes, they are covered in green velvet of freshness. My husband loves bike. He has a Classic Royal Enfield 350 which he is madly proud of. It’s very special, and it took him

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

Edakkal Caves

Edakkal Caves 1

Ancient caves always fascinate me. Last October we went to visit Edakkal Caves in Kerala. They’re very different from the caves we have ever been to. Most caves we visited during the past several years are Buddhist cutout rock caves with elaborate crafting details. Edakkal Caves are unique; they are raw and filled with prehistoric

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
