“How I Fell In Love With Hampi…”

Hi, folks,

If you love history, go to Hampi;
If you love photography, go to Hampi;
If you love nature, go to Hampi;
In short, backpack to Hampi

2015 Valentine’s made me super angry. Of course, it would make any single person angry because most of our friends would be on getaways with their S.O. Especially when you are 24, the chances of people around you being committed, engaged, or married is way too high. Well, so I decided to go on a trip by myself to Hampi – the historically haunted town!

What I Wore On A Kodai Trek? #KodaikanalDiaries

Hi, gorgeous people,

One year back, my friends and I went to Kodaikanal. It was an impromptu trip. Kay, Vee, and I went to some Tamil comedy movie in the end of June 2014, and suddenly, Kay and I started to convince Vee on how nice it is to go on a trip again! Yeah, we went to Goa in Feb month. Not even six months from the last trip, Vee was reluctant at first, and then somehow he got convinced *travel bug bit him you see* So, we were set to go to Kodaikanal as a weekend getaway. I will write the full story sometime soon as a blog post under Stri’s Travel Diaries section. Right now, let me tell you what I wore when we trekked hills in Kodaikanal.

June 2015 Vacation Travelogue Kickoff Post & An Announcement

Hi, folks,

If you had been following my blog, you would have known that I had been on a vacation for the past ten days. Yes, I was backpacking to west, north-west, and north India as a part of my solo travel. For starters, I prefer traveling solo. Most of the times, people question, “Why solo? Won’t you get bored?” I, on the contrary, get bored around people easily (not all, but many), so I prefer solo travel. Now that I have told you about how and where I went, let me get into more details of the same. Before that, here you go:
