After running out of “the weather is so nice/bad/romantic/it’s raining and how’s your new job coming along”, the all inevitable, if a little ironic, favourite topic of conversation...
Boho At Heart Travel, decor, eating, living.
One of the perks of living away from your family is that you get to have your place, however tiny, facility-less, but your own. Living in Hyderabad gave...
The thing with being jobless is that you have a lot of time to run errands and check things off your to-do list that you didn’t before. Plus...
In a world where reports of millions of dying of hunger, disease, farmers committing suicides by the thousands, floods and cyclones ravaging and uprooting villages, refugees in war ridden countries having nowhere to go are as frequent as a status update on social media , the biggest fund-raising worthy cause we’ve decided to go with is, traveling?
Holidays on Fridays or Mondays make for great long weekends. Add another day of leave, and they’re the stuff that dreams are made of for any corporate slave hanging on the 20 day vacation a year rule. The itch to travel is strong. Take off to Goa maybe? Or cool off in Ooty?

Sometimes greatest things are discovered by accident. Having just about 5 days on hand, and having covered most of the weekend getaways in this part of the country, we might as well have rolled a dice.
