This post is being published live from Yangon, Myanmar. We complain on every small thing that disrupts our daily life- traffic jam, flight delays, bad weather and so on. But there’re lot worse one can face if their fate plays games with them. You might have watched the movie “The Terminal” where Tom Hanks was no longer admissible into his destination country, because the country that issued him ...

Dambulla golden temple wasn't on my plan before visiting Srilanka- I had considered a possible trip to Dambulla Rock temple but not the golden one. When we arrived at Dambulla by bus, Tuk Tuk (auto) drivers surrounded us. One of the driver asked if I want to go to Golden Temple or Rock Temple. I stuck to my plan of visiting Rock temple, because I feared auto driver may trick us. While Rock ...

Some heartbreaking news ahead! Unlike 2017 or 2018, next year, 2019 doesn't seem to have lots of long weekends. Many holidays fall on Saturday or Sunday or middle of the week. 2018 has 15 long weekends, 2017 had 13, but 2019 will have just 7- may be a few more if you get lucky with some state level/company specific holidays. Nonetheless here's my compilation of 2019 long weekends. You can use ...

Many of us travel solo and at times it helps to have a buddy along during our trips. But our real life friends/family may not be able to join on all trips, so next best option is to find another traveler, though stranger so far, online. Having a travel buddy gives you following advantages: Share taxi cost or boat hire cost etc and save some money Someone to click your photos than trying selfie...

I have been following Ather Energy since a few years now. Since past few years the photos of Ather Energy’s proposed e-scooter was going rounds. They did some road show which I couldn’t attend and they also did a PR drive to get some publicity before seeking funding. At that time I was little skeptical- they didn’t have a working model that media could ride around and experience- only a ...

This is the tale of a good food product brand that doesn’t seem to have any online presence. Pickles are integral part of Indian households. All over India different types and flavors of pickles are consumed during meals. If you go to a supermarket, you will find some nation wide brands -like Ruchi, Priya, Aachi, Mother’s Receipe and so on. I personally like Ruchi and Priya brands- but ...

During my first trip I had a short visit and during our last trip, we spent a night in Nuwara Eliya. In this post, I am explaining various attractions around Nuwara Eliya that you can ...

When I planned by Srilanka trip, I planned an overnight stay in Ratnapura, Srilanka. The reasons for staying at Ratnapura were as below: It was mid way between Horton Plains National Park and Mount Lavinia/Colombo. It was more comfortable to stay overnight and proceed next day There were few possible attractions that could be visited nearby- Peak Wilderness Sanctuary, Kitulgala (where Bridge ...

Many face this dilemma while planning a visit o Srilanka- how many days to spend in Colombo? Almost everyone lands in Colombo and then proceeds to other parts of Srilanka, so it makes sense to spend some time exploring the capital town. But how much time should you factor for the capital is a tricky question based on your interest and budget. In this post, I am trying to help with such planning,...

This post is about a caravan stay option you can try in Nuwara Eliya, Srilanka. I didn't stay here, so this is not a review, just sharing information I have related to this. Unfortunately this caravan park didn’t come to my attention while I was looking for budget stays in Nuwara Eliya. I stayed in a budget hotel called Rose Bank, where we paid around INR 5500 for 7 people for one night. ...

I have a simple suggestion that can reduce the rate at which a passport runs out of pages. Do read and if you agree, share this post. Running out of passport page is a worry for every traveler. A 36 page passport typically exhausts in 9-10 trips. One international trip means about 4 stamps or one full passport page. One stamp while leaving India, one more upon arrival at destination country...

Indian tourists, particularly those who are pure vegetarians by food habit, often find it tough to manage good food while traveling abroad. Being vegetarian myself, it is a serious consideration while planning my trips.

While I was scanning for a budget stay in Sigiriya on booking.com, Sigiriya Riverside villa caught my attention- it showed tree houses, claimed a river next to the property and was in budget- some 25 USD onwards per night. Though it was about 2kms from the Lion Rock and there were other properties close by, I selected Sigiriya Riverside villa to experience tree house and a relaxed stay next to...

My first two trips to Srilanka were of very short duration- 2 to 3 days only. Thus I had dismissed Sigiriya as a bit too far and focused on cities closer to Colombo- such as Galle, Negombo, Kandy etc. However, my recent trip was so far the longest- 5 full days and I could afford a slightly longer journey. Sigiriya is famous for its giant rock, known as Lion’s rock. I won't bore you with its ...

All these days, I was wondering why Auroville folks are keeping a complicated process for going inside Matrimandir- why not let the regular day visitors take a quick look inside. But after my visit to the inner chamber, I appreciate the separate process defined for this purpose.  Read this earlier post to find out about theprocess involved to get entry pass for Auroville’s Matrimandir inner chamber. After collecting our passes, on the designated day, we reached Visitor Information centre in Auroville at about 8.35 AM, 10 minutes to spare for the designated start time.We were guided to a video room-approximately 150-200 people had gathered there for that day’s visit. Doors were close...

Almost every website that lists “top places to visit in Pondicherry” mentions Auroville. Auroville is popular for its Matrimandir- a gold coloured spherical dome meant for meditation. Viewing Matrimandir from outside (from viewing point) is fine but not getting to go any closer spoils the experience. But what these websites don’t explain is how to go inside Matrimandir. An unplanned visitor/tourist visiting Auroville only gets to see the Matrimandir from outside,from a distance of few hundred meters. Getting to go closer and inside is a bit more complicated process that takes some time and effort. During my first visit to Pondicherry several years ago I went to Auroville and saw the Ma...

One of the most discussed topic in blogger community this month is the GDPR Compliance. Unless you’re totally inactive, you would have come across this term and wondered what exactly you need to do as a blogger in order to be GDPR compliance.Like many concerned bloggers I also spent some time checking around what is this, what I need to do and so on. In this post, I am making an attempt to explain the GDPR Mandate and its implications on bloggers. I was greatly assisted by Travel & Fashion blogger Bhushavali Natarajan, who is currently based in Europe and has seen these from close quarters. Swati Naik also provided some inputs.What is GDPR?GDPR is General Data Protection Regulations, m...

All of us drink juices and drink tender coconut. Though the juices and tender coconut is natural, most of us use a straw to drink. Even without asking vendors by default insert a straw and serve. Some of us find it more hygiene and convenient to drink through the straw than drink directly from the juice glass.Of late many activists are launching campaigns to save the straw- rather to encourage people NOT to use the straw. Though it is a small n simple object, millions of them are used every day in cities, all of them are non bio-degradable and end up becoming a plastic waste. If most of us can avoid the straw and drink direct, it will be that much less burden for mother earth.Photo by Kudpi ...
