Kovalam beach & Trivandrum – The Capital of Kerala

We started from Thekkady after breakfast and reached Trivandrum by afternoon. It took us more or less 4 hours. Drive was smooth and there was not much traffic on the way. After a relaxing & fresh up in the hotel, we started for Kovalam beach, which is around half an hour from Trivandrum. While we were driving, our driver suggested to visit Poovar also and so we took a detour. There was a small jetty for boat and from where…

Today I am going to write about something, which is not my forte but I have friends who are really good at capturing good selfies. This post is about how to click good selfies.

Chandni Chowk Walk with Intach Delhi

We travel to far off places to see and experience culture but most of the time we don’t go to the different or historic places in our city.

I remember going to Chandni Chowk as kids with my parents, after that for many many years I didn’t go to…

Bridge crossing Solution on Betwa River

Bridge crossing Solution on Betwa River

I came across a bridge in Orchha which has no side railing/balustrade on sides. It consists of just a cement road. The width of the road was just enough for a bus/truck and with one-foot extra space. It was one of the fun experience and we developed our bridge crossing solution. We crossed the road once in autorickshaw (Tuk-tuk) to go to the sanctuary and twice on foot to watch sunset/sunrise. After crossing the road couple of times, we got…

Dudhsagar Waterfall Goa in Monsoon

I haven’t visited Dudhsagar waterfall Goa during my earlier two trips to Goa but this time, I had decided to definitely visit it.
