I don’t know how many posts have I dedicated to these flecks of greens and browns, positioned so firm over the constantly undulating Bay of Bengal for centuries now. No I don’t live in this island though I dream for it every day, night and evening; but every time I have visited this place, it has always been so fresh and so new than the last time. I can never have enough of this place; Andaman has always been the insufficient thirst for me which I never want to get over with.Click here for more
If it’s a hill station in #Kerala, the famous stop has to be Munnar, but I decided for something different this time, and found a very popular hill station among locals and almost unknown to rest of the tourists community. Vagamon was the pick for this time, the journey has been very tiring, many discouraged to go there and to my surprise, several weren’t even aware of how to go to Vagamon from Kochi! And not to mention the hurdle I faced to communicate with locals due to difference in languages!Click here for More
I didn’t have any idea of what Biennale meant or was or could be, till I went to Fort Kochi and a heart full of gratitude to my host, who mentioned the word ‘Biennale’ to me. Biennale is an International Art Exhibition held worldwide at different times and on an alternative year basis. Artists across the world can take part in it, and whats more.. tourists, aesthetes across the globe travel to attend such events. (And I just didn’t have a clue about it!!) Every possible existing form of art is showcased on this 4 months long event. This biennial event is silently herculean, apart from its actual showcase forum, i.e. the Aspinwall House there are 12 other venues where artists can project their creativity.Click here for more
After Ajmer Sharif, the journey to Pushkar takes another 1-1:30 hours. By the time we reached out hotel, it was half an hour left for A.M. to take to take over. For sure the entire days strenuous touring, needed for some comfort food and a soft and cleanly done cozy bed.
Pushkar is a small town in Rajasthan, very famous for its 1 week long yearly camel fair. A huge sand clad fair ground gets alive during the fair season, otherwise that same place looks like a deserted stadium for rest of the year. Now-a-days camel ride or camel cart rides are widely available here as well just like Jaisalmer, only I doubt about the evening dance show. Apart from this, the prior attraction is Lake Pushkar after which the town has been named.Click here for more
On the way to Pushkar from Udaipur, there are two places to stop by, and both are quite a distance away from each other. So in order to cover both in one day, you have to start earlier than usual in the morning, 7 am will be a good choice. Undeniably it’s going to be a by default tiring day , but it’s no loss.
Once started the engine, the first stop would be Chittorgarh, which is about 2 hours distance from Udaipur, unless you are taking a small break for the first major meal of the day which is also quite important.Click here for More
