Rishikesh - Holiness that Attracts Everything!

Image
Spirituality is eternal. Something that no one can force on you comes from within, It is not just a way to connect to God, but to connect you with you.  I was recently reading the book "All Roads Lead to Ganga" by Ruskin Bond. And I was quite intimidated by it to open my blog draft and pen down my thoughts in the draft. The draft which was apparently got lost in the web of work that leads to materialistic satisfaction. Rather than satisfying the thirst of the soul.  The book talks about the Himalayas so vividly. And if you are an OG reader, you know my love for mountains is uncanny. The giant, lofty, and humungous rock so beautifully personifies strength and patience. So, the book is all about describing how most Ganga was originated - the myths, the fables that go on about it. The confluences at the various " Prayags" in Uttarakhand (Prayags - confluence of two or more rivers) When anyone speaks about mountains - I picture Himalayas, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand

For the Stronger Immunity & Health: KOFOL Immunity Tablets

Image
Whenever I am traveling, I make sure I have my emergency medical kit ready. Yes, my parents since the beginning have always had this one pouch which has all the generic medicines like one for headache, fewer, and cough and cold. So, this is not something I have been trained for but something that has been observed and is a habit now. So, since I was planning for a trip soon, I made sure all my medicines were updated, no expiry, nothing. And it was then that my father asked me to add some immunity tablets in the kit. And I was like, “Yes, this is the new normal.” However, irked you might be, eet eez what eet eez...:, right?    I then thought of sharing with you all what has been my go-to medicines that I always have or what is that I have updated in my kit.    Let us start with some immunity tablets - that is the new additions and then move on to our good-old cough syrup.    KOFOL Immunity Tablets Immunity tablets are one thing that we all have been advised a lot of times. Not just tabl

AULI - Some Realisations & A Lot of Mesmerisation!

Image
When I first started my travel journey - especially my blog, it was all about the experience. Meeting new people, explore new places, and to be honest it became more about mountains later on. It was after I started working, I started traveling more often. No, it wasn't because my parents did not allow me, they are the coolest parents, but I wanted to travel with my own hard-earned money. Having said that, I discovered a lot of new things. One of them being adventure sports. I am an enthusiast, I love exploring new things. When my parents planned for an impromptu trip to Auli, I was over the moon. I had heard many stories about people visiting Auli and seeing their pictures - finally, it was I who was ticking another destination off my list. Traveling to Auli was a delight - I was traveling in a mini-bus after years. We were a group of two families - eight people. And the experience was going to be nothing less than surreal. You have homecooked snacks every now and then, there are t

Little Lhasa in India

Travel has always surprised me. To an extent where I have always seen myself left in awe. That expression where your brain concentrates on just syncing the view, your mouth speaks no word, and your eyes are twinkling with the sweet rush of emotions. One such beautiful destination was Mcleodganj. I had heard innumerable stories around this place via my childhood friends. Most of their first travel destination was Mcleodganj and Dharmashala. Whereas mine began with discovering South India - and that's a different story after all. But when you constantly hear stories from people about a prominent destination, it itches you to visit it as soon as possible. Oh, God! What is it with the place? Why have I yet not discovered it? Yet you keep traveling and unraveling destinations left, right, and center. But that place, but Mcleodganj. And the itch always lives in your unconscious mind. I had completely forgotten about this, but when I did reach the place, every story I heard, every sigh ac

Up Up And Away : My Paragliding Experience in Bir

Image
Adventure travel is yet another categorization for some travel enthusiasts. I say some because it isn't a priority for me. I definitely love to try and explore new things never the main motive. Until...I did my first ever Paragliding in Bir beginning this year. 2021 had to be a new start we were all inside our houses in 2020 so since things were opening up, I decided to the least have a week-long vacation in the mountains. And it did happen. Also, there were many firsts on this trip. When I say, "MANY" I mean it.  Each and everything will unfold, with the unwrapping of each destination on this blog. So, you will have to be constant with the blogs that I have published regarding this trip. Speaking about the initial firsts, I had not planned the destination. Of course, I knew Himachal to be the destination but where in Himachal, what is the journey we are going ahead with. Are we going the Shimla, Manali path or is it going to be the Manali to Dharmashala one? We left ever

This Hill Station could Possibly be my Retirement Home!

Retirement plans! Woah....sounds so mature and serious matter, right? A 26year old girl, who has somewhere started her career in the media industry, writes her blogs, shares her experiences in the form of storytelling - thinks of retirement? Or rather has  retirement plans ? huh, strange! Of course, it isn't about retiring now or that I am taking life too seriously. My OG blog readers know that I travel with the utmost interest to explore places, create memories, share those in the form of stories. And what could possibly be my ultimate goal? Well, travel the globe and ultimately share stories. What better than writing with a view? A beautiful view of Mussoorie from the Gun Hill point A  glimpse of the Snow covered mountains from some point at Mussoorie A picturesque view of the Sunset in Mussoorie I am aware that many people might mock it saying, "You cannot work or write when you have a pretty view!" That is why I say this place is going to my retirement home and not ju
