Most of you will think I am being ridiculous when I tell you that I am not a big fan of beach holidays. Firstly the idea of sitting on the beach whole day doing nothing terrifies me and second the salty breeze ruins my hair (something that ladies with extremely curly hair can relate to) I like active holidays or immersive travel experiences – walk, hike, eat, drink, understand the culture, admire the true beauty of a place kind of holidays. Read in this Lanzarote travel guide how you can escape the tourist traps and really explore the island life.

A weekend in Belfast

“It’s so cold and windy here..Are you sure Spring has begun?” I think to myself as I walk out from the exit gate in Belfast. After reaching London just a day before and seeing the mercury rise up to 17 degrees temperature in April was a welcome sight. From that to single digit temperature in Belfast; I started doubting my travel plans. But I spent the next 3 days enjoying every second in this beautiful city. Here are my top tips for your weekend in Belfast.

10 reasons why Bali should be your next travel destination

Last month I visited Bali and truly immersed myself in a Balinese way of life. From the moment I told my friends and colleagues that its going to be a 15 day vacation, I was asked few questions – “15 days in Bali? What are you going to do for so many days?” “Isn’t that just one island? Can’t you do cover more places in 15 days than just Bali? My common response was, wait till you see it all in my blog! If you have done only the above things in Bali, I will tell you what you have missed and give you a reason to visit again. If you haven’t been to Bali, sit tight, this post is going to tell you why Bali should be your next travel destination.

8 things to do in Mykonos other than partying

Termed as a glamour island of Greece famous for its parties, Mykonos etches Ibiza-like image in our heads. Of course the parties are on throughout night and glamour quotient never runs out. But there is a side of Mykonos that is mostly unchecked, a side that is less favoured by the tourists but adds another gem to its crown.

A weekend with Grassroutes

It’s been a while since I had visited a village, let alone stayed anywhere out of my comfort zone. I have fond memories of visiting my relatives in Konkan during summer vacation – plucking mangoes and other local fruits, playing with my siblings in the farms and devouring the food cooked on chulla (wood/charcoal fire). Those were the days!

Top 10 reasons to visit Della Adventure Park & Resort

While Mumbai monsoons continue to play hide-n-seek with us, least we can do isbe ready with our plans. So that the moment it starts raining, we are out and about!

We Mumbaikars are crazy about monsoons and rightly so. There is one thing that we all do – head to Lonavala! Watch the beautiful waterfalls & just enjoy the rains. A cup of chai in one hand and roasted bhutta in the other sums up my monsoon story.

But how about escaping the traffic madness and stay somewhere away from the hustle-bustle? How about not getting stuck with the same old get drunk-party-chaos kind of thing and doing some real adventure this monsoon?

Its a Cheesy world!

Culinary tourism is still a novel concept for Indians but the concept has definitely set in. We are not only willing to travel for food in other countries but also eager to explore our own country to find the next best thing in food. Personally for me, be it a rural setting or an urban food-venture; I am always ready to experiment & experience what’s on offer.
