Hi, my name is Rashmi and Rashminotes (http://rashminotes.com/) is the name of my blog. This blog is a journal of my tryst with travel, décor and food. Some of my hobbies include travel, reading, writing, photography, cooking and eating good food. Travel for me is not always about taking a break or relaxing. Many a time, my travels involve hectic schedules as I want to make most of my visit to any destination. Apart from visiting the tourist attractions of a place, I love to venture out exploring the ‘unconventional’ and the ‘uncommon’. Learning about the unique customs and culture of a place, interacting with the locals and sampling the local and authentic cuisine is always on my “to-do” list while travelling. According to me a destination is best enjoyed when you travel with awareness and advocate responsible and sustainable tourism. That said, I firmly believe that the journey is as important as the destination. So my travel posts include journals, post pertaining to experiential travel and treading off the beaten track.
