My New Year Resolution..!!
So finally it's December - a much awaited month for everyone. Finally a week with less workload for all corporate slaves :D, a winter vacation for school children, post semester exam holidays for college one's, and a time when everyone finally says "Chalo" if you ask to go out for a trip.
This is the time when Facebook profile pictures of people are updated with a white background - yes am talking about snowfall :D, Whatsaap groups are created and finally the bags are packed for a next train journey. 
Be it a sunburn festival at Goa or a trekking experience at Himalayas, it's a time to pack our bags and just leave :D
After a long vacation in last week of the year, people start taking their new year resolutions. Some of us decides to go to GYM regularly, while others decide to workout and loose some weight this year. Some of us decides to marry their girlfriends while some of us finally take a resolution to crack CAT os SSC exams this year :D haha. Main irony is that our resolutions were same in 2014 too. Haha..

So the question comes again - My New Year Resolution? 
So my plan is to travel atleast once, every 40 days i.e. 9 trips in 2016 and to date new experiences, cultures and cusinies as am a foodie too :D

Paragliding at Manali

What's better than getting wings to fly in Mountains? A must thing in every traveller's list and one of my resolution for 2016, paragliding at Manali will be like a dream come true :) 

White Water Rafting at Rishikesh

A much awaited thing in my list and an experience which was planned several times but never got implemented. An adventure sport for some and a passion for others - i will surely go for rafting this year and this is my another resolution.

Desert Camp at Bikaner

Camping at mountains and riverside is fun, agreed...but let's give a thought to camping at desert too ! A night in tents at desert in Bikaner is the next thing in my list :D

First Solo Trip at Parwanoo

A small hill station located near Chandigarh will be my destination for a first solo trip. A weekend gateway from Delhi for some and a peaceful destination for frustrated corporate friends, this will be my first solo travel experience in 2016.

Spiritual experience at Kurukshetra

The battle of Mahabharata was fought here and a land of temples - Kurukshetra is a must to visit destination in my list.

Boating at Nanital

Boating at India Gate in Delhi and Sukhna lake in Chandigarh is fun but what if we get to do it in Nainital - the city of nine lakes?

Udaipur - where the royalty begins

A place for perfect wedding destination for some and a land of maharajas for others is a must to go destination in 2016 and is another one in my travel list.

Taj Mahal at night

One of the seven wonders of world and a one day trip from Delhi, i travelled here many a times but want to experience the beauty of this place at night. Another experience will be a view of Taj at night.

Trekking at Kufri

Finally a trekking experience is a resolution for this year and the destination is Kufri - a medium difficulty trek near Shimla and yes a place to experience snowfall too :D

So the 9 trips are planned and resolution is published now. This is to remind me that i have to go but is it all about 2016? No! Experiencing hot water springs at Manikaran Sahib, Trekking in Kasol and a visit to Dhanaulti are few more things to do if i get time besides these ones.

So have a great year ahead and travel as much as you can. Life is too short to keep on thinking so let's stop thinking and start experiencing.

Happy new year to everyone in advance :D
