Sky Watch Friday- The Last Working Friday!

Or in other words I quit my job and today is my last working day. It was not entirely planned but when things became such that quitting looked like an option, it looked increasingly attractive. I would walk past this sign without ever noticing it for...

A Food Post from Goa

After traveling twice with food bloggers on trips to Jaipur and Goa, I am slowly noticing food. Otherwise more than 10 years of hostel food simply killed all my taste buds. After almost ten years of travel, I am trying to revive it. Goa is known for...

That Aimless Walk at Harangi Backwaters

I have said it often, I love to walk, all kinds of walks, but more than anything else, the aimless walk. The evening I went walking around Harangi backwaters (Kushal Nagar, Coorg, Karnataka) sky provided enough drama for me to keep up with my Sky Wat...

Seven Things to do in Koh Lanta, Thailand

Koh in Thai means ‘island’. Lanta is a beautiful island in the Krabi Province. I would recommend both Krabi and Koh Lanta highly for a vacation. The beaches are divine and the crowd is not that thick! I also feel not many Indians go there...

Sunset at Sai Vishram Beach Resort, Byndoor

I am more partial to sunsets than sunrises! At sunset I am almost always awake, however, it takes such an effort to drag myself out of the bed at a sunrise! It is so natural to be biased towards sunsets then! I was lucky to witness a beautiful sunset...

Skywatch Friday- Sunset at Miramar Beach

I fret a lot if I suspect that nature would come out all guns blazing at a sunset and I am stuck somewhere while the grand display is on. While I was in Goa I was staying right by the Miramar Beach, at GTDC’s Miramar Residency. I theoretically...
