Hey guys, today I’ll be sharing about our road trip to Ladakh which was nothing less than the stuff of dreams! We covered some iconic landmarks, scenic drives, saw hidden gems, drove at the world’s highest motorable pass! It was absolutely exhilarating and a road trip like no other! It was a total of 15 days Road trip which got over in a blink of an eye!
Pro Tip- For a road trip to Ladakh, the preferable months are June to September being summer season and you’re less likely to find snow on the highways.
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.

Hey guys first and foremost let me congratulate you all for making it to the Salubrious climes.
Wondering where to stay in Varkala? Well look no further and check out the amazingly beautiful property B’Canti Boutique Beach Resort. This place is one of a kind, from its sea facing location to its traditional yet modern architecture, B’Canti truly offers serenity coupled with luxury.
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.
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.
Brightly coloured walls, Mediterranean styled heritage houses with high compound walls laden with vibrant bougainvillea vines, neat and clean streets where South Indian filter coffee and croissants go together! Yes it’s Pondichery- A mix of modern heritage and spiritual lifestyle. The French influence is everywhere right from the food to architecture, from roads to cafes and streets to hearts!
“Roads were made for journeys, not destinations.”- Confucius
I think there couldn’t be any better way to explore a place than at one’s own pace. And the fun doubles when it’s an exotic island! Somehow we’ve always loved the idea of renting our own mode of transport during our travels. So keeping this in mind we rented a car during our recent trip to Mauritius and absolutely loved the freedom it gave us. And guys this stunning island surely doesn’t have any wrong turns, only infinitely interesting routes waiting to be explored.
