India’s second largest city, Mumbai, previously known as Bombay, is home to a few hundred captivating contrasts and creeds. Mumbai is bursting with frenetic bazaars, shaded avenues thronged by commuters and roads brimming with traffic. The dynamic Maharashtrian metropolis is also a powerhouse of India’s business and trade sectors. But regardless, the city’s ethos lies in its biggest railway station - Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, in people-watching and eating bhelpuri by the iconic arch of the Gateway of India and in the exquisite Taj Mahal Palace, that holds a decade worth of stories about both Bombay and Mumbai. A few other places to visit in Mumbai are Nariman Point - a legion of office blocks in the heart of the city and the Prince of Wales Museum for its eclectic architecture. Watching the sunset with a plate of vada pav at Marine Drive and experiencing the vibrant festival of Ganesh Chaturthi at Juhu Beach are few of the best things to do in Mumbai. One must also travel to Mumbai to be dazzled by the country’s biggest, and most prolific film and media industry, wherein if you’re lucky, you might stumble upon a Bollywood star or two. Read More

Shopping is a woman’s thing, they say. And is really complicated if you are a girl. It’s a contact sport like football. Women enjoy the scrimmage, the noisy crowds, the danger of being trampled to death, and the ecstasy of the purchase.Honestly I should be the last person you should ever shop with. Even being a girl my choices always have been inclined to masculine outfits.Cargos. Tshirts. Army Shorts And much more!Fashion goes where trend follows. Unlike other places where fashion is the prime look Mumbai stands out. Although Mumbai is the epicenter of fashion, the years I’ve been living here made me realise even if you dress up like a hag and go out, you won’t be judged here.I mean there were times when I used to travel a lot in local trains for my classes and that type of travelling had one hell of a different experience.
It was at the beginning of the year that we decided to finally do it. And somehow, everything fell into place. We booked our flights from Mumbai up to Jammu. Finding accommodation at Katra, the base of the mountain and then further travel up in the helicopter till Sanjhichhat were another set of bookings that were needed to be done.Mata Vaishnodevi Shrine board is impeccable in its organisation – be it arranging rooms or helicopter services. Having made it online, it has made the process even easier. We booked the room at Kalika Bhavan, the Shrine board’s own accommodation, quite in advance. The booking for the trip up the mountain, on the helicopter happened earlier, similarly.Pro tip: When you’re booking the helicopter, make two separate bookings for you onward and return journey. Return bookings afford you only 3 hours within which one has to walk up to the Bhawan, have the darshan and return. That being said, it is almost impossible to walk up to the Bhairav Nath temple which is further up the mountain, within the allocated 3 hours.
Countless movies have shown us Mumbai's monsoon being absolutely magical, but I beg to differ. Yes, the rains in July wash the dirt off this eventful megalopolis and make the city look prettier but, the perpetual jam in the suburban areas is a put off. The roads are clogged and the trains are crowded more than usual. Whenever it's not raining, the humidity, at its peak, makes walking even a 100 meters feel like 10 kilometres. So save your time and money, and experience Mumbai like never before, when this city isn't going crazy handling its water-logging crisis.The best time to visit Mumbai is in December. The beaches are lined up with colourful stalls and the weather is fantastic!

My parents and I had a layover of about a couple of hours before our connecting flight to Coimbatore. Sitting at Chennai airport at 8am flooded back the memories of the last year. This was certainly one of the most exciting moments ever - being my last family trip as a student, I was had been looking forward to it. I had spent the Indigo flight from Mumbai working on one of my class assignments, and was glad that it was on the verge of completion.

Called the Oxford of the East, Pune is a bubbling cosmopolitan city. A large student hub, this city loves art, culture and theatre. The Sahyadri hill range of the Western Ghats makes this destination ideal for hiking and wildlife spotting. A shower of rain brings the city alive. The Agha Khan Palace of Pune is a sprawling complex with emerald green gardens and sprawling lawns, perfect for a casual stroll. The Shaniwarwada is an ancient structure built by the Peshwas and the ruins of this marvellous architecture can still be seen in the city. Dedicated to the brave hearts of the Indian Army, the National War Museum is a popular tourist destination and houses militia paraphernalia. Those interested in meditation can get day passes from the Osho International Meditation Resort, which is very popular with tourists. Handcrafted beer, baked goodies at the Kayani Bakery on East Street and eateries such as Touche the Sizzler, Malaka Spice and Dario's will complete your trip here. Read More
Monsoon often makes travel fussy. For people travelling in mountains it makes traveling difficult due to the risk of landslides and road blocks. For trekkers, the trail becomes slippery and people sometimes avoid traveling at that time. How about If I say that there is a place better to travel in monsoon than any other time of the year. I am talking of Pune and its surrounding.
Life is better in hiking boots, Saturday 24th June 2017.Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the Nature. Wash your spirit clean.We started from Pune at 1.oo pm reached Thakurwadi by 6.30 pm after introduction from group members we start walking towards the plateau the route is pretty easy.It is a steady ascent over bad roads and jungle trails. Difficulty level is easy and almost everybody should be able to do.you should avoid carrying heavy load on trek.

For starters, Pune has the Imagica theme park with rides, restaurants, and performances that can make any summer vacation a delight. You can stay at Novotel Imagica Khopoli that’s inside the theme park and let the young ones try every ride and slide with no time pressure.A more refined experience in Pune is ABC Farms, where you can take your little gourmet travellers to sample different varieties of cheese. Slightly older kids can accompany you to the Soma Vine Village in Nashik for a tranquil holiday amidst picturesque vineyards. What will they do there, you ask?Hang out at the Red Room that is full of games, try adventure sports such as rock climbing, go cycling on the estates, and swim in the pool. Meanwhile, you can do wine tastings and vineyard tours.
Finally had to say good buy to the picturesque Ooty which rejuvenated my soul !Visit Ooty any time of the year and it would never disappoint you . But if you are an ardent fan of nature , visit this place during monsoons . It would give you a chance to redefine beauty .
It all started with the idea of giving a birthday surprise. Packed the bags and started off the trip from Pune with birthday boy.You can reach Ooty by choosing various routes. One way to reach is via Banglore/Mysore . I opted for nearest airport from Ooty i.e. Pune to Coimbatore via flight and then covered remaining 85km(approx) distance to Ooty by road . You get cabs easily from main road outside the airport.Don't go for the taxis which are inside airport's premises as they would charge higher .
The alarm buzzed at 6 AM and we were supposed to join office but we were 250 Km far from Pune . Within 30 minutes we were ready and left Kolhapur . Made a call to my manager that I will be a bit late as I have an appointment with a doctor and by 11 AM we reached home. Yippie the trip is over successfully time to go to work and I was at my desk by 12 PM responding to the emails and back to normal daily life.My manager enquired me about my health and what happened that I need to visit doctor but deep inside I was smiling thinking about my journey :)Distance Travelled : 269 KmTotal Distance Travelled : 1529 KmDo watch our Entire Journey here https://youtu.be/nzni-bL9QyoThanks for going through my travelogs , do watch the trailer video that i linked with this blog .

The bus dropped me off at 6 AM across a highway with nothing in sight but a tiny tea stall and a dingy OYO room service that cost more than my flight tickets back from Pune to Delhi. Like other two coastal stays, this city served a purpose as well and we’ll unfold it after we get through my understanding of progressive rock and music in general.I don’t own any instruments. I couldn’t afford one and now it’s just too late because I would rather invest my money on things that’d shape memories and reap benefits for a happier future.The pure joy of music came very late to me, at least the kind that gets me numb and holds its wire against the pulse of my wrist to check if I’m still alive. More than anything else, it’s like running on a hedonic treadmill that won’t stop unless you want it to.Exhilarating. Overwhelming. Soothing.Three words that summed up my interpretation of music, irrespective of the genre like books and on-the-road shenanigans.
Before we get to actual trip, here’s what happened during the prep stage. As a lazy guy, procrastination is my forte. So obviously when it came to packing for this trip, I waited until the last day (the last 10 hours of the last day, to be precise). The last time I was in Himachal Pradesh, the weather was perfect for beach-bum shorts, flip-flops and if I was feeling risque enough, a floral shirt. This time was a little different. Since it was the beginning of Winter, the temperature there did not permit the exposure of my sexy legs and so I had to pack accordingly. Once I got that out of the way, with a little help from a friend who folded my clothes and my underwear (reluctantly) while I supervised, I was ready to leave.

I started my trip from Ahmedabad, took a flight to Delhi. The adventure started from Ahmedabad itself as our flight got cancelled luckily we were able to book other flight on the same day thanks to GoAir. I with my friend reached New Delhi around 12 noon. Our bus to Manali from Delhi was at 22:30. We managed to book a hotel near airport where we passed our half day.The ISBT bus stop from airport is around 25kms, we took airport metro from Delhi Airport to reach ISBTReaching ISBT bus stop : For catching metro from airport one has to reach aerocity metro station which can be easily reached by shuttles operating at airport. Catch metro from Aerocity to New Delhi and change from New Delhi to ISBT. The bus stop is just outside the metro staion,you can reach easily as it is mentioned every where. We reached ISBT bus stop at around 21:00 hrs. where we met our second friend. We had our meal in McD and boarded our bus at 22:30 hrs. The bus was Tata Himgaurav HRTC which was not good as Volvo.

so it was 8th January 2017 and i was all set to leave Ahmadabad, as we were traveling via bus so there was not a big problem to be on time. (*privet bus for travelers) and i decided to set in cabin as i want to enjoy scenery and explore the roads. so we left Ahmadabad around 2:00 pm, i know it's a bit awkward time to leave place but that's okay as we don't have any time issue. distance between Ahmadabad to Mahabaleshwar is 745 km via NH48 which also contains toll road, 823 km via NH60 and NH48 and 854 km from NE1, NH48 and NH60. we chose the shortest on 745 km via NH48.now those who had traveled to Gujarat knows that roads in Gujarat are absolutely amazing, just pull the throttle and live the moment! so it took us around 16 hours to reach Mahabaleshwar. our route was Ahmadabad-Baroda-Surat-Mumbai-Pune-Mahabaleshwar, we used both expressway to make journey comfortable and fast!

The road from Ahmedabad to Kutch is filled with lot of fun and complimentary scenes which makes is a perfect road for going on a road trip. The road is complemented with some great sceneries and endless expanse of the white desert which is complimented by the colorful life of the local people of Kutch. The road is almost 381 kms long and a best one to go on a bike trip.
Started the engine at AhmedabadWe kick-started our bike from Ahmedabad on NH47 that took around three hours plus half an hour to reach Rajkot with a couple of halts to take some high-caffeine tea. The road is good and the food is available at many locations in between. If you start in the evening, you should stay in Rajkot for a night & continue your ride the following morning a little early because rides always make us tired out if we do not believe in rest. We did the same & check into a hotel named ‘Krishna Palace’. This budget hotel charged Rs.550 for a night.
I am a college student and I just want to find an excuse to escape my busy life and party and enjoy myself.This holi I couldn't go back to Delhi (home) cause of some reason.All my friends went back home and I was planning to just pack my bag and go for a solo trip. At first I decided to go to Mumbai for holi but eventually I decided to party in Goa.So zip zap zoom irctc got booked a train but I was still on the waiting list. I couldn't get a birth but I got on the train and when Ticket collector came I showed him the wait list on my phone. He thought that since I am showing on phone my ticket might be confirmed. Haha. It was a 18 he train from Ahmadabad to Goa, tiring but when I got there since my ticket wasn't confirmed,it got refunded. I reached Goa for free. Haha haha luck me. on my way met these amazing people who were also going to Goa . They were from Mumbai and I decided to stay with them for 1 night since I got booking at this hostel from 12 to 14.
Day 3, was spent in exploring Gandhinagar plant nurseries for work purposes and then relishing on amazing Jasuben Shah Old Pizza's followed by heavy shopping in Sanskruti Shop offering amazing clothing range of Gujarati culture and art and the in the evening we splurged on Swati Snacks. This place being very famous is a bit over-priced but offers excellent service.So, it was a wrap for Ahmedabad this time with a wish to explore it again and again.P.S. it would be a crime not to mention the amazing watermelon juice throughout the trip and blindly ask for sugarcane juice at any place and I bet it would be worth having. Also, splurge on some pineapples since these fruits are found everywhere in Gujarat. Also, do visit the Sahyog restaurant if you visit Mehsana and for your information it's just in front of the massive Amul Dairy factory.
The Sun Temple approx.100kms from city of Ahmedabad situated on the banks of Pushpavati river in Modhera Gujarat. If you are living in Ahmedabad or are visiting the city and have an extra day to make use of,then a quick day trip planed,area being easily accessible via road through public or private transport.

So, to continue by own tradition to spent my birthday at some new place that I always wanted to explore, I planned to visit Murudeshwara. As usual, I called my cousin at 11:30 AM and asked him if he will join, and all he asked was what train we will be catching. He must have got used to my absurd habit of dropping sudden plans on him.Three and half hours later, we were at Thane station waiting for Mumbai - Mangalore Matsyagandha express with our sacks on our back and thoughts about how long we will be standing in train before we can rest our butt for some time. Luckily, three hours into the journey, a group of people got down at Mangaon and we got a place to seat. Rest of the journey was completed comfortably (with our nomad standards). We got down at Murudeshwara Road at around 4AM in morning only to see couple of autos waiting outside railway station. This was my first time in an of the four southern states of India and I was really excited and worried about it at the same it. We took an auto from Station to Town and were planning to spend some time outside temple before the doors open. But auto driver suggested us a hotel nearby temple, so we planned to go for it. Place was average and we got the rest needed before starting our day.

Popularly known as Baroda, Vadodara is great travel destination for history buffs and art enthusiasts. The town is known for the grand Laxmi Vilas Palace and the Fatehsingh Museum (both located in the same premises). Do keep aside an entire day if you are fond or art and culture since the palace is huge and deserves that kind of time. You can also visit Sayaji Baug, a lush, refreshing garden in the middle of the city. It is the perfect place to visit if you are travelling with children since it has a small kid's zone, a cafeteria, a small museum and a zoo. If you are in the city for more than a day, do visit Maharaja Fatehsingh Museum since it houses numerous rare and beautiful paintings, sculptures and murals from all over the world, collected by the royal family. Vadodara may not be a traveller's perfect destination, but it does have its fair share of history, culture and art. Read More
We had a plan to halt again at Ahmedabad, but "We the Riders" aren't only riders, we are "Super Riders". We had started from Bhuj at 8 am. Our breaks were scheduled after every 100 kms, But the exciting part was that we were very close to Ahmedabad in the afternoon itself, we had covered almost 75% of the target destination....."Hmm that's exciting, we can cover 100 kms more, so that we would be close to Mumbai and the next day ride wouldn't be hectic"...Chalo let's cover 100kms more and halt at Vadodara, we decided while resting under a tree. In the evening, we had reached Vadodara to find there was heavy traffic in the city, we were dying to get a hotel. Finally we got one at the Airport....the name itself was Hotel Airport. The stay was luxurious and the comforts were much needed after this long ride. We had stayed there for a night.Day 7 - Vadodara to Mumbai

Now it was time for us to head back to Mumbai. We started riding back and at Bhuj we got our bike serviced and by night we could reach Vadodara.Next day we again started early with a motive to reach Mumbai by night. We could reach Daman by evening and again it being a union territory we had some good beers to charge ourselves for the one final time for the trip.
Early morning, the next day we were headed back to Mumbai which is nearly 800 Kms away. We did a stop-over at Vadodara, for the night, where we enjoyed the street food, before proceeding to Mumbai. Having visited both the Legends, at Dandi, and the Lions, at Gir, we brought our road trip through Saurashtra to a successful end.
It took us a lifetime to plan, cancel, re-plan and then reschedule the most cliched yet epic journey to the mountains of the Ladakh range.12 long days of mesmerizing ever changing landscapes . Mountains left us awestruck. Enormous rivers followed us everywhere.It is one of those amazingly beautiful places I believe where even the simplest of the camera can give you a pro-level splendid nature photo.Sit back , relax and enjoy Ladakh through my lens.
On day 9 morning made visit to City Palace and Monsoon Palace and then started my return journey to Pune through Vadodara. Reached Vadodara by 09:30 PM and settled in a hotel near the city. On day 10 started my ride towards Pune from Vadodara and reached Pune at 09:30 PM.
