Haridwar - The Ancient Holy City by the River Ganges



The Ancient city of Haridwar is an important Hindu Pilgrimage site in Uttarakhand state of India where the river Ganges flows as it exits the Himalayas.  The largest of several sacred ghats (bathing steps), Har Ki Pauri hosts a nightly Ganga Aarti (river worshiping ceremony) in which tiny flickering natural lamps are floated off the steps. People often come here to achieve salvation and some just to get amused by the beliefs and vibrancy. Falling more into the second category, I also decided to visit Haridwar to experience the vibrancy of the city and also somewhat to get rid of my sins (I still don't know how that works to be honest).


Pack Your Bags for Goa This Monsoon



The monsoons are a magical season across the country and Goa is no different. If you think the rainy season is a bad time to visit the beach, think again. Goa is an ethereal vision during the monsoons with a blurred horizon between the skies and the sea, lush green all around and a solitude which is hard to come by at one of most popular destinations in the world.

Goa hotels are not difficult to find. But since it’s the off season for tourists, why not splurge on some luxurious accommodation when the prices are at an all time low! The Leela Goa is a good choice with their premium services and impeccably luxurious settings. And if you’re a wanderer, you can book one of the smaller hotels and keep flitting in between the quaint old towns.


A Trip To Kerala: When God Finally Called Me to His Own Country


After many failed attempts and planning, finally the Kerala trip was happening. The joy was visible on my face and every person known to me personally, knew about my excitement. Tickets were booked three months in advance and during these months, due to various reasons, this trip also almost was on verge of getting cancelled, but thank God it didn't. Finally the week arrived and I had all the reasons to cherish and tease others who already had enough with my bragging about what all I am going to do on my trip (for which I am sorry, or not?)

A telephone booth which was not being used anymore has been turned into 'world's smallest museum'. Yes, you read that right, a telephone booth. Located in Warley, Yorkshire, the booth was “adopted” from British Telecommunications (BT) by the town association of Warley and filled with the local historical artifacts. The exhibit includes old photographs, glass etchings, and personal items such as antique fashion pieces and jewelry.

Do you know that Airlines fly planes slower today than they did in the past, making it longer for you to get to your destination? Yes, despite enhancement in technology and super fine engines, it takes us longer to reach our destination now. In 1973, it took 2 hours and 37 minutes to reach Houston, Texas from NYC and now it takes 3 hours and 50 minutes to cover the same distance.
