I don’t use usually any sim cards when I travel outside India. I rely on the Wifi for data as I don’t really feel the need to carry local sim cards. While preparing for my long Europe trip, however, I got to know about TSIM. TSIM is a company that offers various pre-paid SIM cards. I decided to try their Refundable Lifetime Europe SIM Card that I used for over 2+ months traveling in Europe.…

Despite having been to Goa many times – right from my college days to when I was working full time, I only discovered my love for Goa last year. I traveled to Goa 4 times at my pace, spending my time going off the beaten path, experiences, food and culture. My quest for unique Goan experience is still on this year too. And it led me to Olaulim Backyards homestay, and I ended up getting…

From time to time, I take a break from constant exploring and discovering new experiences even while travelling, as it lets me slow down, enhances my creative and productive sides, and just helps me unwind.

The opulent Havelis, splendid forts, vibrant bazaars, royal heritage and delectable street food made me fall for Rajasthan the very first time I visited it! While I was checking out Jaipur’s attractions, I came to know about Chokhi Dhani Resort for the first time from…

A hostel this big? That too with a swimming pool? These were the thoughts when I looked at the pictures of Wanderers hostel on the internet while I was looking for a hostel in Goa. I was back to the beaches after having had a serene experience at Dudhsagar spice plantation and was planning to explore the beaches in North Goa. Morjim was the first place that I wanted to stop over. This is when…

I had had a chance to travel to Goa many times. But, I had never shared my travel experiences in Goa so far on my blog. My reasons being, Goa is a well-known destination, and the beaches need no special introduction. Well, over a period of time, when my longing for the offbeat places grew, I discovered there was a lot more in Goa if I could manage to get away from the beaches. So…
