The 100th Blog Post ~ GIRL AT THE WINDOW SEAT

Oh My God! I cannot believe the fact that OUR BLOG has 100 posts published! This is one feeling I have been trying to sync in for the past week now. Girl at the Window Seat started its journey as Girl Explorador - and since then I have used this medium to pour my feelings out.  The idea of the blog came into existence post a mandatory college assignment. The blog must have 5 compulsory write-ups published by a certain deadline. Once I had to decide the name of the blog, the niche, and design the blog - minutes into the process I knew this is not going to be a one-time thing. This is not just an assignment for me.  I started writing my blogs, published the assignments - which were my fond travel memories, and gave words to my love for travel. The journey of writing was never planned but destined. If anyone called me a writer or asked me if I could write - my constant mood was "not again!" I do not understand was it the inbuilt writer's procrastination or my irritating habi

The scorching heat has become a disturbing phenomenon. The amount of sweat and irritation that comes along with the firing temperature is unbearable. I can only imagine myself in a cold place.

Places To Visit Without Worrying About Covid Regulations

A lot has already been said about the covid-19 and its ongoing variants. Now that things are finally open and running, we have started to live in the new normal. A lot of Indian travel destinations are already open for tourists. There are places where you need to follow certain Covid-19 regulations and there are others where there are no such restrictions. We are going to talk about the latter. So, here is a list of 5 travel destinations in India you can visit just like you did in the past.  Goa: The ocean side state is currently completely working and presently inviting guests all over India. If you love ocean-side views, and adventures, and want to experience the nightlife - Goa is the perfect pick. The northern beaches are typically loaded up with lively ocean-side activities while south Goa ocean sides are generally quiet and calm. You can even visit some popular places of worship in Goa like the Basilica of Bom Jesus Church, Se Basilica, and Mae De Deus Church. Best time to visit

Haridwar: How It Opened Doors to Spirituality

Pouring my heart out today, yet again. I have been brought up in a family that is secular, never been caged towards spirituality. My parents believe in one superpower above - the almighty. They took us to temple visits on travels and to every auspicious ceremony the Jain traditions have. I never opposed the tradition, I followed it without any questions taking their thoughts as the primary one.  It was gradually when I saw more of the world, met people, and had my share of experiences that I created my own views.
