Zip lining over river Beas

Our big beautiful country offers us opportunities to indulge in quite a few adrenaline pumping adventures ! We are blessed with rivers, mountains, jungles and so much more, we just have to look beyond the regular touristy things to savour them. I have tried a lot of adventure sports all over the country and am recommending the ones I have personally done as you can see from the pics and not simply by googling 🙂 Continue reading “Adventure Sports in India”

My Literary England

My journey of visiting birth and work places of great English authors and poets across England.

Shakespeare’s birthplace and home in Stratford-upon-Avon.

You don’t have to be a bibliophile to know the literary giants of English language hailing from England ! Names like Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Geoffrey Chaucer, Keats, Milton, Wordsworth, Tolkien are part of our lives in the form of movies, poems, plays, books and so much more. And if you happen to be a bookworm like me and devour English classics then a trip to England is like a literary pilgrimage. Continue reading “My Literary England”

A day in ‘City of Bath’

Soak yourself in this Georgian city to feel the pulse of true England !

The stunning Bath Abbey

I visited many places during my trip to England and loved everything about this country but a few places left a lasting impression and I am sure I will be back there sometime to relive the experience, probably in spring/summer. On top of the list is the spa town ‘City of Bath’. This UNESCO World Heritage city replete with gorgeously imposing Georgian architecture is roughly 156 km from London and is easily accessible by trains / coach buses.

UK Visa for Indian Passport

A – Z of how to get the UK visa without any agents !

UK visa stands right besides the difficult to get finicky, first world visas like USA, Australia, Schengen when you have an Indian Passport ! UK tourist visa entitles you to visit England, Scotland and Northern Ireland multiple times for a 6 month duration. You can opt for long term visa too but it costs a bomb !

You definitely DO NOT need an agent and it’s no guarantee that you will get the visa if you apply through one, if you have all your documents in order and are organised, it’s a breeze.

The basic premise for getting a visa is that you should be able to prove :- Continue reading “UK Visa for Indian Passport”

Guide to Universal Studio, Singapore

A DIY guide to enjoying the Universal Studio in Singapore to the fullest without missing out the good things !

The famous Universal Globe

No trip to Singapore is complete without enjoying a day at Universal Studio, that is my firm opinion 🙂 .
Universal Studio is inside Sentosa Island but you need a full day to enjoy Universal and it has a separate ticket, not part of Sentosa entry ticket. Please don’t lump Universal trip on the same day as Sentosa if you want to enjoy full value for your money, as we Indians like to call it “Paisa Wasool” !

The day I surrendered my heart to Gangtok !

Story of how Gangtok became a home for me and not a tourist hotspot 🙂

I was a 24 year old new mom who had to shift lock, stock and barrel for atleast 2.5 years to Gangtok to follow the husband’s call of duty. Sounds wow for a tourist, like a really long vacation ! But in my heart, I wasn’t ready to go, it meant quitting a well paying job and becoming a financially dependent housewife, which wasn’t appealing howsoever beautiful the place maybe !

DAY 3- PHUNTSHOLING TO THIMPU – We started on this journey on day 3 with a visit to the Army doctor first 🙁 . My son and brother in law, both had an upset stomach !! So with a prayer on our lips and some trepidation we started the drive on the snaking mountainous roads. The first thing that struck me was how different the mountains in Bhutan were from the mountains in Sikkim.
