JEWEL IN THE CROWN – JUNGFRAUJOCH, SWITZERLAND

Experiencing Jhugfraujoch is the highlight of any trip to Switzerland. This is a different world altogether. The view from here nearly takes a breath away – glaciers all around snow crunches under the feet, icy air across your face and chilling wind with little drizzle on your body. One can only understand what I am trying to say, is by visiting this heaven. I got an opportunity to visit this wonderful place when I was studying. Never thought in my dreams, that I would ever go to this place so early in my life and that too my first travel … Continue reading JEWEL IN THE CROWN – JUNGFRAUJOCH, SWITZERLAND

ISLAND OF THE GOD’S – BALI, INDONESIA

It has been more than 7 years ever since I went to Bali, but it still feels like yesterday. All the memories related to this place are so fresh. Well, one of reason for this place to be special is it was our honeymoon destination – perfect, serene, and the most beautiful. I remember back then it was not that famous tourist spot for Indians and was only seen as a couple destination, but in the last 3-4 years it has become one of the favorite destinations for Indians be it couples, family and even corporates – many conferences /outbound meetings are being … Continue reading ISLAND OF THE GOD’S – BALI, INDONESIA

UTTRAKHAND, THE LAKE DISTRICT- NANITAL, NAUKUCHAITAL, SATTAL, BHIMTAL, INDIA

Nanital, known as “Lake District of Uttrakhand”, is one of the most popular hill station in India, especially for Northern India – it serves as a weekend gateway tourist destination. I always wanted to visit this place for two reasons, one it is a beautiful place and second, it is near to Delhi. Generally, people tend to visit those places which are far off and ignore the places which are nearby thinking we can travel this place anytime. And nearby places always get ignored as taken for granted destinations. We went there in August for 3 days, though not a good month to travel. Landslide is very common … Continue reading UTTRAKHAND, THE LAKE DISTRICT- NANITAL, NAUKUCHAITAL, SATTAL, BHIMTAL, INDIA

HILLS, BEACHES, MOUNTAIN PASS – GATEWAYS, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA

When I was in school, I always had some inclination towards official conferences and tours. I always used to think “wow – it’s so much fun in travelling/conferences”.

AGRA – CITY OF TAJ, UTTAR PRADESH, INDIA

It would not be wrong to say Agra is synonym to Taj Mahal. The City is famous because of this spectacular monument in the city, Taj Mahal – 7th Wonder of the World. Have visited Taj Mahal 3-4times, andthe white beautiful stone structure is mesmerizing every time i have seen. It is weekend gateway from Delhi and takes 3-4 hours road drive. One can either come back the same day or can stay for a day to enjoy the beauty. Best time to visit – August – Mar (when the climate is cooler). During summer, the flooring gets very hot to walk … Continue reading AGRA – CITY OF TAJ, UTTAR PRADESH, INDIA

“HEAVEN” ON PLANET EARTH – KASHMIR, INDIA

Kashmir…….Yes it is very rightly said….it is a heaven on Earth. The state is blessed with exquisite natural beauty – snow clad mountaintops, exotic orchids, lush green pastures, forests….& much more than you can think of…. It was our 3rd anniversary & we chose Kashmir for celebration. The decision could not have been better… We went in Dec and it was really chilly winter in Kashmir. I must say one should visit Kashmir during winters (which is considered as a not so friendly season for travelers). In Dec, you would see more foreign tourists than indian. This added great advantage for us. Wherever we visited, we got exclusive service. No long … Continue reading “HEAVEN” ON PLANET EARTH – KASHMIR, INDIA
