They often say, “Home is where the heart is.” Well, in my case, home is where the sweet grape, Godavari and Sita Gufa is.
Nashik is my hometown and despite its slow life, I love it. Not just because I’ve grown up there but also because it is a city that lets you take a break from the rat race whenever you wish to without feeling guilty or left out. It facilitates earning decent money with good enough job opportunities (though not like tier 1 cities) without killing your personal life. However a bad day you’ve had at work, you wind up coming home to a glass of wine and waking up to a breakfast of Misal Pav! That's Nashik for you.
Though both these things are my constants, I honestly feel that Nashik has much more to offer and it's high time we look beyond what is served and go out and about to cook a little something that’s more basic, original, and yet, unique.
For Mumbaikars, Punekars and all those who love to travel, Nashik welcomes you with open arms every time you wish to unwind and have a relaxed weekend getaway, especially during monsoons and winters. But then most of these getaways have a classic itinerary that majorly includes visiting Vineyards or staying in one, trekking, eating Misal Pav for brunch and visiting religious abodes.
These of course are the key attractions of Nashik but as I always reckon, look out for offbeat experiences and never let curiosity die.
Considering this, here’s a quick unique two day itinerary to take you through my city and let you explore Nashik better:
