GoCambio, Teach Locals and Get Free Stay

One fine day I just decided to explore Twitter and get off Facebook completely!! Its been four days since I last checked my Facebook account and fallen head over heels in love with Twitter. I wish I had known earlier what an amazing platform Twitter is. It connected me to communities, people, authors, restaurants, celebs etc. whom I loved, rather than going through mind numbing status updates from random friends about their weddings, babies, check-ins etc. And, on Twitter I found GoCambio, an innovative platform for perpetual budget travelers like me!

Khurpa Tal. One of the many lakes in Uttrakhand, found this on our way back

This was one of the rare trips wherein I didn’t plan anything, packed my bags in 15 mins and hopped inside our car to reach a place I had never heard of.

After multiple searches over the web, I was glad that I found Dadhikar Fort in Alwar (Rajasthan). This Fort was built in the 11th century by King Chand and is situated right in the middle of a village atop a small hill! Continue reading To Savor Something Royal and Exquisite

An Underrated Quaint Gem

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds ~ Edward Abbey

Mountain lovers would probably understand the depth and beauty in this quote. Though the trails of Kasauli are not crooked and dangerous, they surely are worth exploring. More than once, I found myself glued to my resort’s sit-out area and ferried to another world with the magnificent mountains in front of my eyes. Something magical and mesmerizing was flowing along the wind with a tinge of tranquility. What a delightful experience….!! Continue reading An Underrated Quaint Gem
