Thoughtful Tuesday.

The beauty of Travel !♥

You visit a place and come back to routine life but your heart yearns… for more moments, more memories, more nature walks, may be more pictures too 🙂 You Travel once to particular destination and the experience alters you forever. So, physically you are not traveling though but your brain is!! As they say, ‘ Once a Traveler, Always a Traveler’.

Some destinations are so beautifully blessed that the sights find a special place in your heart and every time a discussion comes up about that place, your eyes sparkle and a positive smile runs across uninhibited.

Today, I’m sharing few of my favorites – pictures as well as quotes, made me introspect , retrospect and HAPPY!!

Udaipur Tree Quote

All of these were clicked at Udaipur.

Udaipur city stands as a testimony to the living heritage and eternal legacy of the Sisodiya dynasty. Sisodiyas ruled the city for over 1200 years. The origin of Udaipur dates back to 1559 A.D when Maharana Udai Singh met a sage who blessed the Maharana and advised him to build a palace at this favorably located spot.

Udaipur is a visual treat, it’s shimmering lakes against the backdrop of Aravali Hills, formidable palaces, enticing structures,  fascinating ambience makes the city a captivating destination for domestic as well as international tourists.

Happy Exploring 🙂

Doorway to Heaven

This beautiful temple door really seems to be the entry to the heavenly mighty Himalayas. We captured this shot at Kalpa, Kinnaur. Kalpa, is few kms from Reckong Peo, the drive itself will make you fall in love with this place. The place could be perfect summer destination !!! Go for a nature walk, relish the Apple orchards and magical views of Kinner Kailash range. We covered Kalpa on our recent road trip to Spiti Valley (April 2016) but you can easily make journey plans only around this place if you have less time and wish to stay in the lap of nature:)Evening at Kalpa

When The Travel Bug Caught Us!!!

“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller

Such a profound thought 🙂

‘A soothing wave touching the soul, a sigh of relief amidst all dissonance.’ That’s how I would like to define Travel.

There could actually be so many reasons as to why one travels? The most obvious ones being vacation, work and education but here I’m hinting on something beyond the ordinary.

I believe one travels for the inspiration, experience, touch more souls, make an impact, for adrenaline rush, to find oneself, allot time to retrospect, do bizarre crazy things, plan your future in solace or might be simply to take a break from the chores.

A cuppa of story from Kashmir, India

The long lasting Aroma of Kashmiri Chai – ‘The Pink Tea’

It’s almost 7 in the morning, you still struggling to believe it’s the time to wake-up as you won’t give anything for the cozy warmth of the blanket on chilly winter morning in Kashmir.

Srinagar Inspiration

A mother taking her kids to school on a boat. This is a usual sight in Srinagar, Kashmir. The houses are built on the Lake, popularly known as Houseboats. The boat is the most common medium of transport. Kashmir is one of the most revered tourist destinations in India.

You take a quick peek at the window & it’s snowing, the whole porch is covered with fresh & soft snow. Here enters the ‘Noon Chai’, the aroma of the piping hot tea gives a good reason to leave the blanket, enjoying your cuppa right besides the window witnessing snowfall is a heavenly treat & makes a perfect morning!!!
