Top 5 memories of 2018

Top 5 memories of 2018 :
1. Going to Tawang. It was simply surreal. The horrendous roads, bone chilling cold, the delicious thukpas, the affable army men, the frozen lakes, snow fall, jaw dropping scenery....it was an amazing trip to begin the year with.
2. Graduating to become a doctor! Finally became what I’d strived for since I was introduced to biology in school. Writing that first prescription, giving that first cpr, instructing the nurse to administer that first injection.
3. Vietnam 🇻🇳 always wanted to go solo (though not really) to this country! It didn’t disappoint me one bit. Vietnamese coffee was pure love and the varied geographic terrains from beaches to mountains to caves to sand dunes I saw it all.
4. Organised 2 free sales successfully. The look of joy in those in dire need of something and them getting it was pure bliss.
5. South Goa in December. Chain pulled. Train stop. High in Hampiness. Cola beach, camping, bonfire, Maggie 🖤 that cottage in front of the beach.

Zipling? Zorbing? : Head from Bhubaneswar to Konark Jungle Camp for An Adventure Weekend

Staying in Bhubaneswar and wondering what to do over the weekend?Well, luckily for you, the OYO Jungle Camp Resort in Konark is just an hour away. Away from the buzz of the city life, set right in nature's lap this place has surplus activities to keep you hooked throughout the day and give you an adrenaline rush. 

This Jungle resort offers a variety of accommodation options starting from dormitories to Swiss tents. The muddy path that leads you into the resort feels like you're entering an old ranch. It's really serene early in the morning and at night (Cause of the waterpark nearby which has a loudspeaker hampering the peace of the place throughout the day). In fact, at night it can get pretty scary if there are no other occupants in the campsite (like in off seasons), so be sure to take your troop along. There's a nice pond in the middle of the campsite, with provisions for bonfires and loudspeakers (completely breaks the concept of tranquility, if you're seeking …

Best of 'Kaptivating Kerala' - Places you must not miss!!

A few years back I was fortunate enough to witness the charms of this alluring state. A few months back it was heart-rending to watch the devastation that it went through. But, Gods' own country, Kerala is back on its feet and is ready to do what it's best known for - Welcome Tourists!!


Kochi is a twin city. One part, the Fort Cochin is the cooler, traveler hub. The other part, the main city is full of hustle and bustle. They are interconnected by road as well as by water. The ferry charges only 4 bucks one way! And not only is it the cheapest way but the quickest as well as a more enthralling way to travel.
I Stay : Fort Cochin has a very laid back and chill atmosphere. There are amazing hostels here. I stayed at the Happy Camper hostel. One of the best hostels I've stayed in India. Cute dorms, clean bathroom, super chill vibe, and great food. Eats :1. Teapot Cafe - An adorably done cafe with so many colorful teapots around. It's very relaxing to just sit here, talk w…

Puri - The Weekend Beach Getaway, More than Just A Pilgrimage.

Puri, known to some as the land of the Jagannath, and to some (like meeeee) for its ferociously beautiful beaches. The road journey from Bhubaneswar to Puri, which takes about 90 mins, is very picturesque with vendors selling fresh tender coconuts on their bicycles by the highway. Nearest Airport is in Bhubaneswar. Puri is well connected by rail to the rest of India, so that is a convenient option to arrive here if you're fine with missing out on the road trip. Transport : 1. A.C red bus - This is a government run bus and costs 110 INR per person. They start from Master Canteen bus stop. And has just one stop at the Kalpana bus stop, on its way to Puri. This is the most cost effective and quick way of reaching puri. 2. Ola Cab - You can book a special Bhubaneswar-Puri package from the Ola app which costs you about 1090 INR for a one-way ride (recommended) or 2300 for a 24-hour package. 3. Shared Taxis - You can catch hold of a shared taxi from the Kalpana square for about 100 INR…
