My Travel Experience (Jaipur) DAY 1- 24th February 2017 18:00 hrs- Assemble at Mumbai Central Station 18:50 hrs- Departure to Jaipur by 12955 Jaipur Superfast Express (Dinner in train). At last, the much anticipated trip to Jaipur which was arranged by my college was here. I was excited as it was my first trip to the Pink city. The train was scheduled to leave at 18:50 hrs so I started my journey at 16:30 hrs as we were told to assemble at the station well in advance of the scheduled time. I arrive at the station with an hour to spare and it was the usual chaos, queues of people waiting and travellers getting bothered by the coolies. I met my professor and college friends who seemed equally excited about the trip. We loaded our bags onto the train and saw people chasing backwards and forwards past the door of their compartment. The train started to move steadily until it started catching up speed, we got a glimpse into everything, right from the slums to the hustle and bustle of Mumbai city. Once everyone had settled in their seats, all whipped out their smartphones to capture the memories which were being made during the duration of the journey. DAY 2-25th February 2017 13:40 hrs- Arrival at Jaipur & transfer to hotel (Breakfast in train). 17:00 hrs- Evening free time for shopping at Bapu Bazar. 21:00 hrs- DJ party. We arrive in Jaipur on the Jaipur superfast express at 13:00 hrs after an amazing night journey. Having arranged for a bus pickup from the station, we get to our hotel ‘Vesta Maurya Palace’, amid market hotel at a distance of 2 km from the railway station. The hotel was situated close to M.I road and was on a walking distance to some of the best sights of Jaipur. The hotel indeed had a palace like ambience offering good service and spacious rooms which helped us to settle in quickly. After a sumptuous lunch at the hotel and a much needed rest after an exhausting 19 hour journey, our professor told us to leave and explore the city on our own. We took a walking tour across the gullies of Jaipur exploring and understanding the culture of the place. We bonded over a glass of malai lassi followed by an auto ride to Bapu bazaar, a one stop destination for all Jaipuri items. It consisted of some amazing shops where you’ll get great stuff with good quality and prices. It also has many shops selling lakh jewellery which is a must buy from Rajasthan. Later, in the evening after dinner, an exclusive DJ party was arranged for us in the hotel. We grooved to some of the latest beats and danced the night away. DAY 3-26th February 2017 09:00 hrs- After breakfast visit to City Palace, Jantar Mantar & Hawa Mahal. 14:00 hrs- After lunch visit to Chokhi Dhani. After a fun filled night, it took a long while to get started early next morning. We woke up at 8:30 AM, had our breakfast in the hotel and hopped onto the bus for a day of sightseeing. Our first destination was Jantar Mantar. On our way there, we got a breath-taking view of Hawa Mahal from the bus. The palace of winds as it is called is a large wall consisting of 953 windows facing the main road. It was built so that the women of the royal family could enjoy the festivities across the streets without the outsiders seeing them. JANTAR MANTAR: After admiring the beauty of Hawa Mahal from the bus, we reached Jantar Mantar in no time. The name Jantar Mantar translates to calculating instruments and it is a collection of 19 structures that date back to the 18th century. These instruments were used to predict eclipses, track stars and measure time. We had a hard time keeping up with our guide but whatever we could understand from him was that the instruments were used to track movement of stars and planets and to study everything related to astronomy. Sounds fascinating, doesn’t it? CITY PALACE: After exploring science, we went on to explore the royal history of Jaipur at the city palace which was at a walking distance from Jantar Mantar. City palace, built between 1729 and 1732 by Sawai Jai Singh, is a collection of royal articles belonging to the Maharajas. It is a typical amalgamation of traditional Rajasthan, Mughal and European styles of architecture and designed according to Vastu Shastra. The palace has many courtyards and buildings coloured in pink and outlined with white design. The main attraction of the City Palace was the museum. The beauty of Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal is worth mentioning. Chandra Mahal which is a 7 storey building contains many unique painting, mirror work on walls, and floral decorations. The beautiful Mubarak palace has a collection of royal Rajasthani costumes and textiles. CHOKHI DHANI: After touring the City Palace, we came back to the hotel for lunch. After having an amazing meal, we headed back to the bus for our next stop Chokhi Dhani which was located in the outskirts of Jaipur. It was 17:00 hrs when we reached the place. We were greeted with a broad smile by a lady who applied tilak on our foreheads as soon as we entered. The surroundings captured the true culture of Rajasthan miles away from the city life. It is equiped with Rajasthani folk dances, camel rides, magic show, games, handicraft market puppet show and much more. After strolling in the village themed area, we headed to the dining room called ‘Sangri’ to satisfy the foodie soul in us. The only let-down was the waiting line outside the dining area. It took us about 20 minutes until we found empty seats. But again, it was worth the wait as the staff served food with lots of love and respect. The thali consisted of Daal baati churma, khichdi, kadhi, rotis and everything served with a generous amount of ghee. The plates before us filled with food and drinks. I suddenly ravenous, helped myself to everything I could reach and began to eat. There was not much that could be done other than going back to the hotel and crashing into bed. DAY 4-27th February 2017 08:00 hrs- After breakfast visit to Amber Fort. 14:30 hrs-Departure to Mumbai (lunch in train). On the fourth day we started early by 8:00 AM as we were supposed to check out at the hotel before lunch. Our last destination of the tour was Amber Fort which was again nearby to the hotel. We climbed the steps, getting dizzier and dizzier, until at last we heard the murmur of voices above us which indicated that we had reached our destination. Built in the late 16th century and yet another popular spot for the tourists. The fort was full of ornate paintings, the art and architecture included both Hindus and Muslim style. The highlight of the fort was the stunning Sheesh Mahal. Also known by the name ‘Mirror Palace’, it had a ceiling which was completely made of mirrors. The story behind it as told to us by our guide was that the queen actually loved to sleep under the stars but the king didn’t want her to sleep outdoors so he got his architects to build it. When you look at the ceiling it seems like there are stars twinkling so that she would feel like she was sleeping outdoors. True love indeed! After amber fort we came back to the hotel, packed our bags and headed back to Jaipur railway station by bus. We spent the entire day in the train chit chatting about our trip and the places we each found fascinating. The train moved steadily and the scenery outside the window became wilder and darker while the clouds overhead thickened. We were feeling glum as our trip was coming to an end. Day 5- 28th February 2017 8:00 hrs- Arrival at Mumbai Central Station We woke up to the noise of chaiwala and the glaring sunrays flashing through the window which was enough to drive away the left over sleep. As we were nearing the station, everyone seemed to be busy unchaining their luggage’s from underneath the seat. As we reached the station, we bid our goodbyes and made a pact that we shall explore another region of incredible India soon. The trip finally ended with us bringing back nothing but memories that will last for a long time. Ram Ram Sa!

A wonderful visit to Devbhumi (literally "Land of the Gods") - Uttarakhand . Planning from the last year to visit a hill station in the monsoon season has come true this year. Dated 5 August 2017 mind set full of positivity filled up with all the positive vibes to spend some time in the cool environment amidst the greenery and the mountain freely all away from home specially parents. Packing for journey in excitement mood had almost caught up all the house ! Actions were speaking louder than our voice. All the necessary things were packed including Clothes , Glasses case , Scarf , Cell phone and Charger , Ear plugs etc. Eatable items Peanut butter Sandwiches , Chips , Chocolates were carried with us. Me and my friends set to our journey by 7 o clock sitting in the Uttarakhand Travellers bus which was well maintained and structured by seeing to it the happiness doubled. The reason behind travelling through bus was to discover all the adventurous things that were undiscovered , it was like we all neither wanted to reach to our destination early nor late. At 10 O clock we had our dinner at the famous spot ‘Gajrola’ and we experienced how much fun it is at night time to have dinner with friends at food stalls outside home. We were even glad to see ‘Pahadi’ dishes that were being served to people we had the taste in our mouth but our stomach were full that why we could not have it. After starting from ‘Gajrola’ we came into the bus took of our ear plugs and all the way we went listening songs. At 3 O clock we reached ‘Ramnagar’ we had heard that sweets of this place are very famous and good in taste so we got done of the bus and purchased 1 box of sweets . We had to wait in Ramnagar for 1 hour as it was mandatory for the bus driver to at least have a rest of 1 hour. Then as soon as we crossed ‘Ramnagar’ the gentle touch of cold breeze touched our face and soul we all were feeling a bit sleepy but after experiencing this we all became active we opened the windows and started looking out and started observing the nature. We all friends together jolie hooted We even came across the way of ‘Jim Corbett National Park’ as it was too early in the morning we were able to see few creatures also like birds , elephant , deer , cows , monkeys etc. We captured all these in our camera including the beautiful scenery of all the way including the most famous ‘garjiya’ mandir too. We even behaved in a crazy manner rest passengers were also amazed to see our happiness. At every spot a selfi of our friends and picture of nature was being clicked we did not stop till the battery got dull. At 11 O clock the bus bored us at our relevant stop in the morning we were soo happy to see our destination . We thanked the driver for being a part of our journey and we moved on…

Shimla- The Queen of Hills   Travelling for me is experience. Travelling for me is the magic of adventure and anxiety we feel in our veins. Travelling for me is a journey to experience the world and getting to perceive yourself better each day. But, in the hustle and bustle of the fastidious world, we seldom get time to travel or go on adventures. It has retreated itself to the back seat of the car or that book in the shelf you adore but never have the time to give it a read. In the month of May when the scorching heat had taken over Kolkata, draining all the energy from us, we (my family and I) decided to go on a vacation after almost 4 years! The gush of happiness was evident on my face. Being an ardent explorer of exquisite locales, I was exuberant. After about hours of discussion and planning and surfing the internet, we decided to treat ourselves with the revitalizing destination- Himachal Pradesh, and rejuvenate our minds, and letting stress take the back seat. Our travel was divided destinations over the period of two weeks; including Shimla, Manali, Dharamshala and Amritsar. But the destination that has left an imprint in my heart is Shimla. Since I was a child, I have often dreamt of visiting Switzerland. The mighty snow cast meadows, the alluring scenery of the Alps and those chocolates! When I came to Shimla, somewhere the traveller in me was satiated with the fact that India hoards the best of destinations and often in all equality to the foreign locales. It was 31st May 2017. We boarded our flight for Chandigarh from Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport. The journey was tiring (around 4 hours) but the anticipation to visit a new place had subdued all the jet lag. Upon reaching Chandigarh, we booked a Tour Car from the airport itself and set off for our road trip to Shimla. On our way we relished our hungry stomachs to delectable Punjabi cuisine at a roadside dhaba. The sweltering heat of Chandigarh did not ease our journey of 140 kilometers and by the time we reached Shimla, we were bone weary and ready to drop! On our way was the stunning Beas River flowing to the right. It is referred to as Tattapani meaning ‘Hot Water’, famous for hot springs, Shiva temple and a long 7km tunnel. We checked into our hotel- The Treebo Varuna, near Mall Road, Shimla and immediately ordered ourselves some steaming coffee and cheese poppers to sooth our tired minds more than to pacify the reluctant stomach.   SHIMLA:   Day 1: We reached Shimla at around 6 in the evening and were greeted with stark daylight! After some light refreshment, we went out to the very nearby mall road and it was a sight to behold. The lights had decked up the mall road like a charm. It was biting cold yet it soothed our tired feet to talk a walk, with the chilling breeze carefully treading past us. We treated ourselves to the very mouth-watering momos or dumplings with a fiery sauce served alongside; finishing off with the legendary ice-cream from The Embassy. We returned soon after, retreated to our beds and soon dozed off to sleep giving our enervated legs some rest.   Day 2: We set of early the next morning to Kufri- a 20 km drive to the place that receives the highest snowfall in Shimla. Kufri is located at an elevation of 8,640 ft. and surrounded on all sides by apple gardens and an amusement park called the “Fun World”. During the month of May, there is an occasional plunge of rain which makes the road up to the “View Point” at Kufri, impossible to tread by foot or by car. Handsome, brawny horses come to the rescue! The pathway is adventurous (thanks to the mud water, stones and gumbo) and it was the best part of the ascend. The scenery was worth everything. Mountains far away looking priceless adorned with the snow peaks, the freshness of the wind carrying the aroma of spring blossoms and the chirping of birds- all giving rise to the most serene amalgamation of nature. The place was a huge market with small shops selling local items and souvenirs and appetising street food. I had some Maggi because there is nothing more fulfilling on a cold wintry day than a cup of steaming soupy maggi. Slurp! Slurp! We strolled around the market, bought some fresh cherries and went strolling till the “Apple Gardens”. Surrounded by collective apple trees, it looked beautiful. The days are comparatively warmer than the nights and we didn’t want to miss our chance at the fresh apple juice that was being sold there. We shopped for some local handicrafts and ‘Apple chips’ (which the monkeys took anyway. That’s another story!). On our way back to the city, we stopped at the “Green Valley”, sipping on some Earl Grey and witnessing the breath taking beauty of the luscious green valley. Upon reaching Mall Road, made it a point to visit ‘Scandal Point’- rightfully named so after the King of Patiala abducted the daughter of the then Viceroy, from this very place, because you can’t be wise and in love at the same time!   Day 3: It was around 8 in the morning when we left our rooms to visit the infamous ‘Shimla Kali Bari’ – a temple dedicated to the Hindu Goddess Kali. The temple is believed to be over 250 years old and the air of spirituality lies within the sanctum of the place. It’s located on a hill and the view is marvellous. The Mall Road also houses one of the oldest churches in India and the second oldest in North India, the Christ Church. The neo-gothic architecture and the sprawling history that makes it an absolute must visit tourist spot. Surprisingly, it was designed by Lockwood Kipling, father of Rudyard Kipling. The Himalayan Bird Park, located some 2 km from the city centre, is home to the beautiful Himachal State bird- the Monal Pheasant. We savoured some lamb curry and piping hot chapatis at the Mall Road, headed off to the Himachal State Museum. It has an aesthetic collection of local handicrafts, age old paintings, coins and other archaeological artefacts.   We did our last bit of shopping from Lakkar Bazaar located at The Mall and as everyone was carrying a bag full of souvenirs, I carried with me a heart full of emotions, like waves filling up every dried crevice of the sea bed. It was my first vacation after a stretch of 3 years and I believe I have had waited for the very best to enrich my love for travelling with a destination like Shimla. It was our time to leave. We were leaving for Manali the next morning. We boarded the car and it sped off, but I guess I’ve left a part of me in Shimla, thriving to grow and learning to appreciate the beautiful place India is, the beautiful place the capital of Himachal is.         PLACES TO VISIT IN SHIMLA:   The Ridge Mall Road Kufri (you can ski here if you visit in October- November) Toy train ride from Kalka to Shimla (more enjoyable during the winter) Jakhoo Temple (World’s largest Hanuman Statue) Scandal Point Theog (a piece of serenity tucked away 32 km from the main city) Christ Church Tattapani Lakkar Bazaar Himalayan Bird Park Green Valley Himachal State Museum Theog (for those great in-depth DSLR pictures) The Shimla Kali Bari

Croatia has always been an attractive destination for cultural travelers due to the rich and diverse historical heritage of this region. The country has witnessed the birth of many mighty civilizations over the centuries, and each of these civilizations has left an indelible mark on the local culture. One can admire the artifacts from these intriguing chapters of the nation's history at the various museums that dot the entire country and can also spot mesmerizing relics from the ancient times on the streets, in the form of majestic monuments and sculptures. Here are some of the most enthralling cultural hotspots in Croatia that one must visit to get a closer look at the multi faceted culture of the region.   Dubrovnik The city of Dubrovnik was once a medieval fortified town surrounded by massive stone walls that shielded it from invaders. These walls still stand in all their might around the city and most of the towers and forts they contain are still intact. As you step inside, you will be greeted by opulent architecture and rustic streets that exude the old world charm. The Sponza Palace and the Rector's Palace are a few of the fine pieces of architecture while the main street or Stradun is embellished with beautiful sculptures and fountains. From the imposing Lovrijenac Fort that guards the coast to the red roofed houses along the golden sea shores, every aspect of Dubrovnik offers a glimpse of the yester years.   Pula The city of Pula is known for the remnants of the Roman era that it has managed to preserve over the centuries. The most striking landmark of this city is the gigantic Roman amphitheater that dates back to the 1st century. Known by the name of Arena, this amphitheater now serves as a venue for concerts and cultural events. Other historical attractions include the Temple of Augustus at the Forum or the main square, the Triumphal Arch of Sergius that was erected in 27 B.C, and the Pula Cathedral that exhibits some magnificent architecture. With so many treasures from the bygone era, Pula is indeed a sprawling life-size museum that will delight all aficionados of culture.   Zadar Zadar is an alluring fusion of ancient ruins, medieval churches, and quirky cafes that are a fine depiction of the diverse Croatian culture. The St. Donatus' Church displays some unique Byzantine architecture while the Roman Forum contains ruins of Roman temples and altars. On the other hand, the Sun Salutation and the Sea Organ are unique creations of the local architect Nikola Basic that impart a wacky personality to the town. While the former is a pavement made of glass plates that absorb the sun's energy during the day and produce a colorful light show at night, the latter is a series of pipes embedded in the staircase leading to the sea that produces whistles and sighs in the sea breeze. This eclectic mix of historical and modern elements has made Zadar one of the most popular cultural hubs in Croatia.   Split The town of Split is yet another destination that offers a delightful fusion of the old and the new. The throbbing heart of Split is the Diocletian's Palace, a massive building made of limestone and marble that is home to residential complexes, shops, and restaurants. This palace provides a modern take on the fortified towns of the medieval times and the contrast of urban lifestyle against the backdrop of traditional architecture is incredibly bewitching. Other attractions of this coastal town include the Marjan Hill (reachable via Split taxi services) that is adorned with beautiful gardens and hidden churches and the Cathedral of St. Domnius that has a glorious bell tower. The beaches of this region are also popular for their exciting nightlife and idyllic scenery.   These intriguing cities provide a glance at the authentic culture of Croatia and display its various hues and flavors in a spectacular manner. If a trip down the lanes of history is what you have in mind then visiting these fascinating locations is a must.

This is a part of a recollection of my 2 week long trip to SouthEast Asia. I made this trip along with mother back in 2015. It included 6 day stay in Cambodia (rest spent in Bangkok with family who are normal residents of Thailand). The true awe of the sights you see in Cambodia strikes you when you are back at the Golden Temple Hotel ( now known as TravellerHome Angkor ), for the humidity and the long hard steps would not let your body recover it's energy. The beautiful and developing country is truly an experience you can't afford to miss. We arrived in Siem Reap back in June 2015, picked up by our Tuk-Tuk driver , Mr. Neou Keo ,who took us directly to a Silk Farm which was on the way to our hotel.  We  learned about how the silk was extracted from silkworms, the different machinery they used, their different practices, the families whose livelhood depended on those silk worms, and the influence of the French had had when they had colonized Cambodia. At the end of the tour was a gift shop, a enterprise of Artisans of Angkor, consisting of all kinds of handmade crafts, cloths and spices which were candy to my senses. Then we proceeded to drop off our luggage at the hotel and headed out to a local pottery studio also offered  lessons to those who wished to learn the art. The next three days involved us travelling through the dense forests of the Kulen mountains, which held intrinsic value as they included the territories which represented the covergence of both Hinduism and Buddhism to the Cambodian culture,  and to various other sightseeing places such as Kompong Kluk which was the floating village.  We visited various temples, which were raised for Hindu Gods by early Hindu rulers. It marked the era when Hinduism was spreading throughout Southeast Asia. The familiar Hindu Gods' Inscriptions brought a feeling of cultural connect to this place, a feeling of roots in that place. Most of these Temples were in ruins and were being protected and restored through the funding by various International Agencies. These heritage sites were also populated with local artists making a living off their fabrications and also potrayed the rich culture which was beautifully preserved by the youth in their creations Temples that we visited were  Banteay Srei, Pre Rup, Kravan ,Preah Khan, Neak Pan, Ta Som, East Mebon etc. Walking and climbing the Temples was exhausting yet rewarding in the same process.It felt really purposeful because you'd sometimes have to climb a few hundred steps up to see each temple yet every temple top was rewarding one way or another. Every new part  of the temple showed us new sights and artifacts. Every once in a while a new insect or bird. The floating village was an experience in its own. The beautiful lake refreshed us and the exploring the village gave us insight to how such a economically backward people were satisfied and positive about what little they had. Another breathtaking site was the famous Angkor Wat which was like a town  in its own. The huge complex consisted of various Temples but they were all dedicated to the God Vishnu alone. Exploring every new part of the complex was a new adventure, a new room holding memories from the past just waiting to be discovered. The local cuisine consisted mainly of Khmer delicacies whose taste I crave till date. Their cooking also required various spices similar to our own culture and they tingled my tastebuds to their core. The food was not expensive yet wholesome at the same time. There are a wide range of restaurants (even Indian) for those who are picky about their grub. We also made friends with an Indian woman staying at the same hotel as us and went collectively to a human  circus which displayed their stunning acrobatic skills through a drama which proved to be both enjoyable and breathtaking.  The last day was full of shopping for local souvenirs and haggling the local shopkeepers,for different spices and crafts,which was an activity I partook in enthusiastically. All in all Cambodia is a peaceful and quiet country full of adventures where everyone should visit once, atleast  to take a break from their stressful and hectic lives.] Our Tuk-Tuk Driver ---> http://www.angkorsiemreaptuktuk.com/ Hotel -----> http://www.travellerhomeangkor.com/
