Yes, this post is coming very late. Udaipur was the last stop on our trip in Rajasthan. We traveled from Jodhpur by road, and visited the gorgeous Ranakpur Jain Temple, and then reached Udaipur. The city is known for its lakes and palaces, and even in pictures has an undeniable romance. The weather was perfect, …
We visited Jodhpur as the second stop during our Rajasthan trip late last year. Jodhpur was a late addition to our itinerary, mainly based on discussions with friends and colleagues. The layout of the city, especially the old city is completely different, and could look chaotic to an out of towner like me, but the …
Royal Orchid Brindavan Garden
We were invited to the Royal Orchid Brindavan Garden in Mysore, and last weekend decided to take this staycation. This particular property is about 30 minutes drive from the city, and is actually situated inside the Brindavan Garden. Overlooking the KRS Dam on one side, and the expanse of the beautiful gardens on the other, …

I always had Hampi on my list of places to visit, but it took me many, many years to actually make it happen. And as another friend is planning a trip here, I decided to take this opportunity to write about my experience of one of the most beautiful places in Karnataka. The weather is …
My first trip to Nice was in 2012 March. But that was for work, and we were staying in Nice and going to Monaco every day to work. So believe it or not, while we did manage to see Cannes, the Grand Prix track, we hardly got to enjoy the French Riviera. And I wanted …
I am not an early riser as most of my friends know. But many years ago, I realized – sleep is something I should save for my bed at home. And I find this principle to come in very handy in short trips such as this. The next day, continuing from my previous post, we …
What’s happier than an impromptu trip? Nothing, really! So when a friend was getting married in a town close to Visakhapatnam, a few of us packed our bags, bought super expensive tickets on Indigo (the price plummeted soon after much to our chagrin.) We reached Vizag late one Wednesday. The airport is extremely basic, bathroom …
