A Trip to Kasol - Mini Israel of India

Share This: So the summer vacations have started in June and everyone started to plan their vacations. Many of my known planned for Goa. When time came for me to plan my trip, I had little confusion where to go. But again, I usually don’t go for any hard planning for my trips. My most of the travel journeys are unplanned journeys, like the one I did to Kathmandu. But

Life’s an open road and we are traveller. We travel from this end to that in search of something we desire to accomplish. We travel to explore. We travel to experience. And thus, life’s full of such experiences and one has to develop an instinct to enjoy such pleasures. I always tend to find such moments in everyday regular life. Be it a long train journey or a walk to

Road to Rishikesh Campsite

After getting refreshed and energized at the rest house, we packed and came out.  The cab was waiting for us.  We all four got in. There were already two people inside including the driver. I have travel sickness and I had to vomit on the way. Once we reached at our destination, I drank lemonade to calm myself. We moved to our campsite along with a guy who led us

Roaming in Kathmandu Markets

I found Kathmandu markets as similar as the ones we have in our areas especially in Delhi. The busy roads, narrow streets, roadside stalls, people walking down the road, bikes, cars, buses and it was all as busy and crowded as we see around. However, one thing that captured my attention was the contribution of women in local markets. I saw women in shops as equal as the men were

Visit to Kathmandu Monasteries

  When we visited Kathmandu, we had no information about the place. We didn’t plan; we didn’t make any schedule of visiting places, which we should have done. It short the trip to Kathmandu was all a hit in the dark and somehow I was able to make it. I had my phone but it wasn’t working in Nepal. And so was with my other friend. No access to internet,

Regular Train Journeys

Travelling is an amazing experience, especially in trains. While you are travelling in train, you will get to see the green, panoramic view outside. No matter if you are travelling in a local passenger train or have reserved your seat in AC coach of any express train, train journey is indeed a mesmerising one. For those who have trouble travelling in other vehicles such as buses, trains are more comfortable

No Phones, No Contacts, No Facebook

While staying in Kathmandu, we had to compromise with so many things. Food, liberty, money and so many other things as well. And yes, how can I forget Facebook. You are in a place out of your country and you haven’t even updated your status and location on Facebook, very strange. So was with me. But there I had no phone. Actually I carried my phone with me there, but

Like A Roamer

Staying at the guesthouse at Thapathali at night and then in whole the day staying out with no fun. So, we both planned to run in the city and do something really exciting. As we were out of our own country and staying like this every day could spoil our visit. So, next day we got up planned something really amazing. Dinesh came up with my plans. I didn’t like.

So, the journey from the capital of India came to the border of Nepal. Now our next step was to get the bus to the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu. We reached Sonauli in the morning and crossed the border from here, the Indo – Nepal Border. After crossing the border and entering the land of Nepal, we planned to get fresh and have some light breakfast. Our team leader was
