Manali - Rohtang, Himachal Pradesh (India)

Rohtang Pass

As soon as I noticed that an extended weekend is approaching, I started searching for a new holiday destination. I applied for an additional leave to extend the already extended weekend and finalized my holiday destination- Manali, Himachal Pradesh. I had been thinking to visit Manali earlier as well but what stopped me was its connectivity. The only feasible way I found to reach Manali was by road. Nearest railway station to Manali is Chandigarh (350 kms) and nearest airport to Manali  is Kullu (40 kms). I preferred travelling by road and booked a Himachal tourism’s Volvo bus to cover a distance of 550 kms (approximately 14 hours) from Delhi to Manali.

Jaipur Rajasthan (India) - The land of Maharajas

Rajasthan Fort
Most of the places I have travelled to have been majorly planned by me, but this trip belonged to my wife. Well, we both were working hard and needed a short Kit-Kat break so we decided to move our lazy bums to Jaipur,  Rajasthan for a weekend. It was August and monsoon in the North India was in full form. Rain, highway and hands on steering, what else did we need?

My wife planned this trip and few of her colleagues were also joining. We all decided to leave on Friday, 5 am in the morning. Now I don't know why I always become insomniac only a day before travelling. I sat on my computer that night and printed out the map of Jaipur and attractions to see in Jaipur. Though I was going there second time but I was sure there was something more in Jaipur which I did not wish to miss. Forts always fantasise me and I love exploring every aspect of the history as I imagine myself wandering in king's wardrobe (maybe I was king in my previous life, who knows) ;).

Goa – The Land of Sun, Sand and beaches (India)

Goa - Land of Sun, sand and beaches

I was getting married to my best friend. Wedding date was fixed in April and along with all arrangements my family and I was busy with, one thing was keeping my nights busy was "My honeymoon destination". I did lot of research and spent hours on computer reading about places that could be perfect for my honeymoon. Sometimes I got so engrossed in looking for that perfect place that I slept on the keyboard and woke up with the keyboard keys printed on my cheeks. Well, after all it was an important decision and I wanted the place to be perfect. So after all the research and reading different blogs, websites, one place stood above all, Goa- The land of sun, sand and beaches.
