      Three reasons why winter is the perfect season to holiday in India!

      Do you want to take a break from your hectic work schedule and head to a holiday destination that excites you? Or are you craving for a sightseeing trip since a long time now? However, you might not want those stinky droplets of sweat roll down from your head and slip through the back of your neck as you visit places on your upcoming vacation. Nor would you like heavy rains pouring harsh over your month-long holiday trip, will you? So, giving those usual summer vacations a break and instead planning for a winter tour might save your trip from becoming a failure. Many would agree that winter is the perfect season to step out of your house and holiday at the most beautiful places, especially in India.
      Here are three reasons why you should choose to holiday in India during the winters:

      • You will finally get a chance to wear your most stylish fur jackets that you had specially bought from a designer sale, but never got a real chance to use. Indian metropolitans are usually not that chilly, even during the winters. Therefore, thick woollens or leather jackets might come handy during the cold season, but not the fur.

    • You can experience a snowfall if you decide to holiday in the hilly regions of India during the winters. The scorching heat of the sun and the heavy downpours might have been experienced by almost every Indian. Nevertheless, snow-bearing sky is not a common scenario in all the cities of this country. So, a trip to the cold Himalayan regions from the month of October to February can help you get clicked amidst the soft white snow.

      • Even if you are not a snow-person, travelling during the winter season is more preferable. The weather being cool and pleasant all over India during winters, you will not be at a risk of getting yourself drenched in either sweat or rainwater.

      As above, so below: Fun can be anywhere!


      Hello travel bugs! We always mention about how much fun you can have by going out, trying new adventure sports – paragliding, parasailing or trekking on some hills, etc. What if this time we actually say about going under, as in underground, of course? Oh yes we mean it – it is time to experience some underground adventures.
      In the northern region of South Australia, there is this incredible town of Coober Pedy. This city is actually the opal capital of the world and believe it or not, nearly 95% of the world’s opal supply comes from the local mines. Due to immense network of cozy & habitable underground tunnels more than half of the city’s population live underground caves & tunnels and hence due to which despite having population count reaching 3000 the town still looks deserted.
      Initially just the working miners made the tunnels habitable for themselves, eventually as the miners moved on, families shifted in while making the underground tunnels more cozy and livable. Smart planning & interesting living conditions further inspired this “Underground” lifestyle – not only these houses are well equipped with all the amenities one can imagine, several caves or tunnels also have doors & windows installed which open out to let ‘sun light’ & fresh air in. So you see it is not actually living like mole people – away from sun & breeze in fact very much opposite and charmingly civilized.

      Although most of these cave houses are private properties, people here are very hospitable. There are in fact hotels and motels specially made for all the interested tourists & travelers who wish to experience this amazing underground lifestyle. So next time whenever you feel low, just pack your bags & go underground literally!  

      Travel safe. Happy Travelling.

      Quick Fix For Packing Dilemma!

      Making travel plans can be quite a task specially if every other article you plan on keeping in your suitcase has some bothering habit – lotions may leak, necklaces tangle, ear rings always get mixed and charging cords & earphones always mesh up, etc. How about making your packing smarter and more efficient, not to mention more fun as well! Here are few quick fixes for your packing dilemmas:


      • Ear rings: try using old, big holed buttons to pair up & store your ear rings, instead of keeping them all in one box and running the chances of jumbling them.

        Image courtesy: jewelrymakingjournal.com



      • Chains & necklaces: all the delicate jewelry such as chains should be looped through straws and then fastened.
               
      Image Courtesy: jewellermagazine.com


      • Non Drip: While keeping liquids such as acetones, oils, shampoos, etc. fasten the caps of the bottles after adding a layer of plastic. The plastic further makes the bottle air-tight and in case of air-pressure or any other pressure, the solutions don’t leak.

           Image courtesy: selectstudyabroad.com


      • Ziplocked: it is always preferable to make up your mind about the clothes you will really need while traveling. This can help avoid carrying of extra clothes which you might never need or wear on your trip. Segregate night wear, inner wears, and beach wears in different ziplock bags. This makes more room in your luggage for shopping, souvenirs, etc.

      The main fun of traveling is when you travel light and hassle free. Make sure your travelling is for your amusement and not added trouble.

      Image courtesy: www.facebook.com/academyofstoners 

      The land so barren and the passes so high, that only the worst of enemies or the best friends would visit 
      this land…
      (Ladakhi quote)

      Besides the spiritual experience, if you wish to have some extreme fun at such an extreme location – activities like river rafting, trekking & mountain climbing are available to add to your adventure.

      Heart Driven Journey


      The New Year has just begun and like previous times- people promised themselves the changes they desired. Resolutions were made, lists jotted down and plans scheduled. But we all know what happens next. After few days of the old routine, some where the idea of change starts quivering, people start questioning their own need of things they desired & planned for. After all, they in fact are doing just fine without going after their so-called dreams.
      True, what difference can fulfilling a mere heartfelt wish make – besides making you really happy, finding joy in your everyday simple life & feeling blessed, absolutely nothing. These are not the important things we need, success is what society demands for, and competition is what we should be prepared for. But has our lives really got confined to such narrow aims? Is corporate success, office parties & social status the only assets one should work & live for?
      Pick up the lists made, and re-connect the plans you made. You wish to travel the world but you can’t find time to go your society park. Well, here’s a little secret – it’s all about your priorities. If you want to do something, you will find a way and if not, well, you’ll find an excuse. Grant yourself some difficult but heartfelt wishes today, so that your future self can be thankful for. Everyone is replaceable in professional world, but when it comes to your personal life – no one can be better at being you than you.
      Words can only inspire you far enough to think, but putting your thoughts into actions is totally your call. This New Year, make more time for your family, friends & most importantly yourself. Do more of what makes you happy, travel places which totally amaze you, meet people totally different & in the midst of all this you may be lucky enough to find a better version of yourself. After all, Mark Twain has rightly said –
      Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.

      Travel safe. Happy Travelling!
