  When most people plan college trips to Goa, we changed our minds and ventured into the unexplored lands of the North East. Most people won't know this but one of the only places in India which follows matriarchial society is Shillong. Here, the man moves to his wife's house after marriage, there is equality apart from the serenity radiating from the lands.  As soon, as we landed on the grounds of Guwahati airport, the cluster of buildings in Delhi altered to rich green paddy fields and the smell of the recent downpour made us dizzy(in a good way) . We crossed the mighty Brahmaputra, the little ferries and fingers crossed to catch a glimpse of river dolphins. The drive from Guwahati to Shillong took about 2 and a half to three hours, the drive was beautiful. Also, as soon as we entered Meghalaya, the sweaty humidity of Guwahati vanished into a perfect weather. The first tourist site which welcomed us was the Barapani lake, which was huge and reminded of the great river in Hogwarts. Then we aclimatised ourselves to the weather on the first day, took a stroll towards the police Bazar( Glorys Plaza and Fancy market is one of the best places to buy clothes and shoes respectively). Treated ourselves to a plate of momos, and rested for the remaining night.  The following day, we started early towards the Shillong peak which is the highest point in Shillong. The weather was slightly cold but the sight was such a treat to the eyes. It was so peaceful and calm, entire Shillong was before us, and it was gorgeous! We had a delightful breakfast consisting of chai and maggi. Next stop was the root bridge. Root bridge is a man made bridge made of rubber trees, built by villagers decades ago. We climbed down a couple of 150 steps to a breathtaking view of the rootbridge, mid way, we gorged down on ripe pineapples and citrusy fruits. Rootbridge was the best memory of my Shillong trip, the clear waters of the stream below, it was hard to believe that a structure so beautiful existed. After climbing up the exhausting stroll, we moved on to the next location, which was Dawki.   Dawki is situated on the India Bangladesh border and is around 60 kms from Shillong, the Dawki waters are so clear that you can see the reflection of your own boat. To boat, we climbed down a rocky trek towards a small beach. We hopped onto narrow kayak like boats and passed through arches and the water was so clear, we could see fish and stones. We had some refreshing cool drinks and lunch in a dhaba enroute to our guest house. The next day we went to a nearby lake called Ward's Lake, boated through the lake, interacted with the local crowd. Also, there's a zoo nearby which has deer, and many species of birds. We also heard that there was a Butterfly Museum nearby but thinking of dead butterflies clipped on glass gave us the creeps. We had lunch in a local restaurant called Bamboo hut, the momos and coffee was delicious. Cafe Shillong is one of the most popular cafes, with live music and one of the only places in India which serve Beef. We were lucky that it wass a weekend, we saw Lou Majou, a popular Shillong artist perform and forced ourselves on delicious food, One of my friends really enjoyed the beef burger though I didn't try. Thukpa and Chocolate shake was sumptous.    Since, we only had a short tripped planned, we went to the Cathedral, which was all in blue matching with the clear blue skies of Shillong. Inside, it was very quiet and peaceful. We roamed around the area, it was huge.  Taking a quick bite from a nearby Cafe Munchies, we drove back to Guwahati along with our hearts full of serenity, peace and calm. Shillong is known as capital and hill station of Meghalaya, also known as "The Abode of Clouds", one of the smallest states in India. With its amazing beauty and breathtaking lakes and rivers it never fails to give you amazing experiences.

As the winter holidays arrived the thrill of going places got me. After tremendous persuasion I was able to bring my Dad’s foot in the car, and then there was no looking back. Everyone was excited for this much needed break, whether it is a break from kitchen as for mom or an escape from books as for my younger brother .We all headed in our car to reach the state’s heart INDORE . We dropped down at my aunt’s place at palasia and brought breakfast from the famous vijay chat corner ,56 dukan. There is no match for the indori poha with the spiced up katchori (a puri stuffed with spiced lentils, potato, or beans)and the sugar coated jalebi(sweet dish). After having the breakfast we headed to the shopping destination Rajwada, where you can get vivid variety of material blend with the essence of tradition. If you are in rajwada then you ought to go to kothari market for the rest of your shopping , we had a great time there with the ever fresh coconut crush and the best pakodas in the world. After the evening trail we went for lunch destination gurukripa, after having the delicious kaju kari we headed for khajrana temple also known as bada ganpati , where they say your wishes come true. The clock ticked and we moved to the biggest treasure of indore ,the treasure island ,the mall is a whole package of entertainment where you shop, eat, play ,from tattoos to cotton candies you get all there. The dusk arrived , and when you are in indore you are compelled to have the scrumptious coffee at tinku’s. The trip is still on, we went to the regal park for some site seeing and relaxing, view there was bracing the soul. Spending a quality time we went to have the dinner this time we decided to have the street food at chappan dukan. From dosa to idly to pav bhaji no one can beat the indori spices and taste. If you ever find yourself at chappan go to the ohm’s for having the special indori namkeen for your take away. Dinner is incomplete without dessert , and dessert in indore is incomplete without having the mouth watering kulfi (a type of ice-cream)at sheetal kulfi. After having an amazing day we went back to aunt’s place but only couple of hours for we didn’t eat dinner and now all of us are hungry at 12 o’clock .Where to go at this hour? You need to think that if you were in any other city ,but when you are in indore then the question itself is answer to sarafa bazar, the life of the foodies in indore. Where you have mouth watering jalebi to the sweet drops of rasmalai(sweet dish) to everything the stomach crave at mid of the night. This was it my one day journey to the state’s heart or a Foodie’s life or the shopaholic soul Indore.

Maybe it is my age (only in my 40’s, but still!), I have now reached a point whereby ticking off a list of places and things to do are not on my priority list on my holiday. I do my research before I travel and figure out things I would like to see / do and spend time doing them well. I do not like wasting my precious holiday time on things I know I would not enjoy. It certainly has something to do with my profession too. I am in the travel business and to give honest feedback to clients I do have to try out all the sightseeing tours. My friends often comment sarcastically “things you HAVE to do for a living”. Don’t mean to sound pompous, but I do find it cumbersome and needless to say quite tiring. The one good thing that has come out of these endless inspections, is that I have realised how much I love walking tours. They are quite common these days and they do seem expensive when compared to the regular ‘seat in coach’ city tours, however I have become a big fan of these tours. I particularly like them for the following reasons: I can decide the area I am most interested in. For example in Paris, I can decide between Marais, Montmartre, Saint Germain and so on. I can do multiple walks over a number of days and just chill after the 2 or 3 hour of walk to soak up the atmosphere in that area. Also, one doesn’t waste their time in Latin Quarter if they are not into Roman history and architecture. I can also pick the walking tour based on my interests, like in Athens one can pick from food walks, political / historical walks, street art, daily life of the Athenians and more. You get to walk with an educated and aware local. As per me, the best experience. My husband and I had done a food walk in Athens, he being a vegetarian got hardly anything to eat. But he loved it as he kept asking the guide a lot of non-food questions, which the gracious guide patiently replied. Of course, the organic 99cents olive oil soap bar from a local store was the bonus too. You burn calories….. he he! As I mentioned above, some people find them expensive, not me. I find them absolutely value for money. Of course, it all depends on the guide. Like in Toulouse I tried the same walking tour from 2 different companies and realised the stark difference. My travel colleagues thought I was stupid to go for the second walk the very next day, but I wanted to know the difference. I was so glad I did. The second guide, though not a native from the region, was way better. She did not rattle off facts, was smart enough to gauge my response and divert the conversation accordingly. That is what smart guides are supposed to do, gauge the response and be crafty enough to change the spiel. She was brilliant, she knew that and hence charged more. I would pay EUR 10 more to her rather than get bored after 30 mins of the walk and lose my money paid for 2 hours of the walk.

My Travel Resolution for 2016 would be “Don’t just visit a Place… Go on a Journey through it!” Here are some places which one should visit to experience surreal and heartwarming ambience. DOHA Doha is one of those rare cities that beautifully captures that intangible sensation of prosperity and optimism while strolling through the Souq Waqif , on a visit to the magnificent Oryx monument or even on Doha’s Corniche. Almost minimalistic in design, Doha very effortlessly projects a sense of neat, sleek, classy yet a very culturally ethnic and diverse vibe. Let the beauty of the shining jewel of Qatar seep into one through its sleek sense of geometry, that indescribable yet heart touching ambience and that ethereal skyline that makes Doha the perfect. MUSCAT With its picturesque landscape and natural beauty, Muscat is a port, the likes of which have never been seen anywhere else in the world. With an aura very different from its neighboring capitals, experience the beauty of the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and the nuances that surround in the Corniche area as it lets one enter the Mutrah Souq from the waterfront. Transport yourself into another dimension by stepping into Muscat with its abundantly rich eastern yet modern and sophisticated ambience. NEWARK A home to an arts and cultural renaissance, Newark is a melting pot in its every corner. Discovering the art of glassblow as playing with fire at the GlassRoots studio, bite into Ironbound, the district blessed with Portuguese, Spanish and Brazilian delicacies and walk into the the world of Gothic architecture as one enters the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. The rich, culturally diverse experience of this place will sink into the every footstep taken and also not making homesick even for a bit. SHARJAH The historic old town dazzles with culture in abundance and is very easy to navigate on foot. Breathe in the earthiness and ethnicity by walking into the Souq Al Arsah, the oldest market place in the UAE, the vibrant colors in the Blue Souq with its 600 shops within two wings and the beautiful symmetry of the Clock tower at the Al Zahra. Exploring the beauty that lies in the town with its surreal and heartwarming aura that one will feel instantly.

Travelling opens up a can of memories,some gargantuan picturesque and some miniature portraits.For some it's like playing a guitar solo and for some it's an organized orchestra. Every thinking mind and beating heart has one opinion or another. The memories are composed of three segments in which the eyes capture,the heart visualizes and the mind plays it on a loop.These three segments fabricate and makes it a wholesome experience for those seeking it. For 2016,I would hinge the loop and would love to revisit Nainital which captured the essence of beauty at it's nascent stage since the time it was discovered.Be it post exam fun,or to mend a broken heart,or to seek a romantic quest it is the perfect place to have a balanced soul. Gossamer mist shrouded trails,romantic pine-scented forests,stupefying mountains,mellifluous bird-songs, cosy chalets and wooden lodges --are just a few reasons that Nainital is quite famous for. Sitting on our chairs in the balcony we looked over the green valleys spread out,the terraced fields snuggled under the feet of Himalayan ranges. At night the mountains look like a teenage girl decked up for a party with twinkling lights in her hair.It was like living in a dream- a dream which I would never like to wake up from. The three spotlights of the trip were:- a) Mukteshwar :- Perched at an elevation of 2900 metres above sea level,it sits atop a high ridge in a remote corner of the Kumaon mountains and is surrounded by fruit orchards and thick forests. The sunrise point is the Indian Veterinary Research Institute which was built by Britishers in 1893 .Mukteshwar got its name from from an 350 year old temple of Shiva,known as Mukteshwar Dham,situated atop the highest point in the town,on the veterinary institute's campus.It is believed that Lord Shiva killed a demon at this spot and granted him salvation. b) Bhimtal :- The lake is located at an elevation of 1375 meters in Bhimtal town in the Nainital district.The town and the lake are named after Bhima,one of the Pandavas who is said to have visited the place.The lake is 'c' shaped,largest in the Kumaon region. One can watch the lake with a cup of tea and peanuts ,enjoy the solitude it offers. c) Sattal:- It is an interconnected grop of seven freshwater lakes situated in the lower Himalayan Range near Nainital. The lakes Ramtal, Sitatal, Laxmantal, Garudtal, Nal Damayanti tal, Sukhtal and Purnatal have been named after the mythological figures. The seven rivers often evoked strong comparisons with Westmoreland of England by the Britishers. The famous movie scene of 'Khoon Bhari Maang' where actress Rekha was thrown into the lake by her on screen husband so that crocodiles can eat her was shot here. d) Nainital:- The lake is named after Shiva's wife Sati and is said to be one of her emerald green eyes that fell to the earth after her act of self-immolation.One of the biggest attractions of Nainital is the Naini temple situated near the nainital lake and for the children's enjoyment there is Appughar. One can see the Great Wall of China faintly when perched on top of one of the tombs located there. The candles for sale in Nainital are mystical. You won't find candles like these anywhere in India. Shapes ranging from Ice creams to trees and mountains, there is hardly a shaped candle that you cannot find there.

Travel for some may mean an escape from the normal routine or a nice time away from home. For me, it is all about exploring places and more importantly getting to know myself. Travel is a medium that makes me calmer, humbler and happier. A little introduction is always nice. So, if you ask about my ASL, then it is 24/F/New Delhi. I am a software engineer by chance and a traveller by choice. I have been born and brought up in a middle class Indian family where I have not been taught about living and travelling alone. I have been to a lot many places with family or friends but I have never had a solo trip so far. This brings me to my travel resolution for 2016 – a solo trip all by myself. Being a mountain person, the place I have shortlisted to visit is Ladakh, India. I have been to this place two years back and it was nothing less than a dream. Awe-inspiring locations, oh-so-pretty landscapes, delicious food, NH-1D, beautiful monasteries and warm people are the reasons I would like to visit Ladakh again. I resolute to get out of my cubicle, take a backpack filled with my camera, pepper spray, a novel, a diary and few clothes along with little money in order to gift myself a journey of a lifetime. The itinerary I intend to follow for my 7 days trip is to start from New Delhi and fly to Srinagar, book a cab from Srinagar to Leh through NH-1D via Sonamarg, Dras and Kargil. It would then be followed by visits to local places, markets, Nubra valley, Pangong Lake along with moments of sitting and just looking at the mountains. I expect myself to come out as an elated achiever after the trip with incredible memories to have for the rest of my life. It may not mean much for some but for me, completion of this particular item from my bucket list for 2016 will make me much more confident of myself and will also give me a sense of comfort towards my country where I can roam around freely without having any second thoughts about being a solo girl traveller.

Not that i have never enjoyed Goa earlier but it has so much to serve for the travelers at their every visit. It's like a piece of dessert,a giant one, which can be of your favourite appetites. Not even a year has passed now and my craving to visit this ancient town has popped-up all over again. This time it would be more precise because all that i have got missed, i shall explore it without any failure. Resolutions to discover the undiscovered should be the goal. One picturesque destination with every possible requirements you would perhaps need, is Goa. What you think you would miss? The very first step of yours till you go off-board, will leave an imprint over your memory which you will definitely cherish till the last breathe. Talk about the seamless Goan roads which will lead you to beautiful boundless beaches or talk about the crazy crowd you would encounter at every food junctions you stop. Stretched from "Mapusa to Panjim", everything you experience, would be one of it's kind. Those memories are so sharp that this year my visit would definitely be for minimum ten days in which i can at least enjoy few of the ancient serenity i missed on my last trip. I visited few beautiful churches, antiquated in their form, but what i missed is the Portugal story behind every painting carved there. With all pride, standing on the list of one of the ancient cities, Goa offers us so much to know about it's roots and the cultures we can never feel amidst our social city lives. Not only to the old symbolic churches and towers Goa is confined to, but it brings you so many other attractions, one of the top most being the mouthwatering food. Sea-food typically cooked in Goan style would leave you speechless and this time again my day-break would be at some shacks with some soul-tempting deliciously cooked lobsters. All those wrecked walls along the roadside, made out of ancient red bricks would particularly remind you of the former Portugal existence. Apart from all those historical dramas, yearly Goa-Carnival brings festivity all around the city. Four days of celebrations in Christian style which concludes with one huge colorful parade is one of my most awaited events this 2016. Best time after December is February when enthusiasm is at its peak to celebrate the happiness and togetherness, i am all set to fulfill my cravings. Goa is a city of endless stories and hidden realities, some are mind soothing and some are spine-chilling but whatever it gives, will be indelible. There no places than Goa to enjoy you summer. Explore Goa's beautiful beaches and historical monuments by joining a travel club to know more information about planning your trip.

New year embarks and new resolutions unfolds. To be happier in life one should follow the journey of peace. Traveling to places gives peace and relaxation. It also boosts one’s morale. New destinations teaches a lot. I had set my travel resolution for 2016. Since my birth, being passionate towards India I wish the year 2016 to be my best as I am setting my travel resolution to Wagah Border. One can learn lot many things from this place. Wagah is a small village near Pakistan. Wagah Border is a demarcation line between INDIA and PAKISTAN.It seperates Amristar from Lahore geographically. The ceremony that takes place in Wagah Border every evening before sunset is extraordinary. I wish to witness the stunning parade by Indian Border Security Force and Pakistan Rangers at the sunset ceremony. The most impressive part of the ceremony is lowering of flags by both countries simultaneously. It is said that the ceremony consists of colorful dance performances. This Lowering of flags ceremony takes place since 1959 as a manoeuvre towards rivalry, brotherhood, cooperation between two nations. I had seen those wagah border scenes in movies and felt inspired a lot. If I travel to Wagah border, I will get a chance to evidence the handshake by Indian and Pakistani soldiers. Thus Wagah border is a place where one can lively experience the act of cooperation between two countries. Traveling and feeling such a atmosphere will be my travel resolution for 2016.
