So after getting locked in for about eight long months, road trip to the ‘Golden City’ Jaisalmer came in our lives like a blessing! Mere imagining ourselves on the highway with music on, uninterrupted snacking and fun along the way was giving us thrills! Come on, we all know how travelling started to seem like a distant dream during the lockdown. So, when it happened we were bound to go berserk. Moreover, the boy’s moving orders had come and we were to move to a new location so we didn’t want to leave without exploring the neighbourhood.
Travel! Did you say travel? How does it feel like? Don’t we all feel the same these days? It’s been centuries ago that we travelled anywhere! I mean who’d have ever thought that something like this would occur, it’s so unreal, straight out of a sci-fi movie, isn’t it? Unfortunately, it’s true and all we have right now are the memories of all the adventures and travels that we took once upon a time, sigh! There’s no secret that COVID-19, the global pandemic has turned our lives upside down, upended businesses especially the travel & hospitality industry, shattered economies, made people lose their jobs affecting their livelihood, with countries going back by so many years and what not!

I wanted to experience hostels but the prospect of it always seemed daunting. Being sceptical about the safety and a sucker for little luxuries in life, my heart didn’t brace the courage until recently. And ever since I watched Kangana’s movie Queen, hostels for me meant dorm like rooms with bunk beds, communal bathrooms(Well not really comfy with that). However, many hostels are rather plush and even offer a few private rooms in addition to traditional shared rooms.
Sri Lanka’s south coast is endowed with prettiest tropical beaches which’ll guarantee to leave you surprised and delighted at every turn! Imagine palm trees (and palm tree swings), fresh coconut water, stunning blue sea and honey coloured sandy beaches for days! This was certainly my kinda destination and we decided to explore the southern belt of Sri Lanka rather than cramming in as many places as possible on the island in a short space of time.
Amritsar or Ambarsar as colloquially called is synonyms with the Golden Temple, a place where food and faith fuses, where serenity and tranquility reverberates! Not only is it the home of the Sikh religion, but also a culinary capital of India, unarguably the apex of all the scrumptious food, Hence, the Foodie’s delight and shopper’s paradise.
