If I have to choose one place among the places I have visited so far, I would choose Pushkar (Rajasthan) without thinking twice…a romantic, peace seeking backpacker’s town….
What’s the probability of having the same co-passenger on a return journey? Wait… let me rephrase the question. What’s the probability of meeting them again on the return journey when your destinations are different, where each bogie in the train has a sitting capacity of approx 100 passengers and there are at least 20 bogies …
Gokarna is for those who enjoy nature’s company. This is a place to go without an itinerary. Just sit back, enjoy the pristine waters of the Arabian sea, take naps, spot dolphins, meditate… simply unwind!
If I have to describe this part of Kerala in one word, it would be ‘RICH’. Blessed with an abundance of natural resources this is the land of the kings that ruled forever without losing their glory and gold. The richness in the architecture, art, food is so evident that we can only envy them. Kerala for some people is just natural beauty or backwaters. Only if they take interest in the history of this land and admire the tastefulness in every form of their art.. only then they will realize why they call it God’s own country!
Kerala is for those who are hungry for experiences. Don’t be the ‘sightseeing’ kind of a tourist here. Because honestly, everything that you ‘see’ here is a sight, and if you are not used to observe or feel the place then you are going to miss most of the fun.

What to expect from a trip when it is impromptu, to an unheard destination accompanied by unknown people? Or let me rephrase the question – What to expect when a trip is all of the above and you are a socially awkward introvert? I said Yes when my roommate (yes, the same one from HR) …
Life sometimes unfolds in the most miraculous and unexpected ways. It throws tons of lemons at you for years and then you start believing that maybe lemons are not that bad. It is then, life decides to show you something that you have long forgotten… something that you feel is only part of motivational, self help, philosophical books – Pure bliss!
I don’t feel like I would ever get Goa off my list. There is a lot more to explore. One has to visit the place, spend a good amount of time to connect and feel at home. In Goa we always feel like at home even when it is not at all like Mumbai. That’s the connect this place has with many of us and there are very few who would visit it just once in their lifetime.
