Are kids any different?

October end in Sikkim. Time around 6 AM. I feel chillness in the air while walking on the road. The Sun is not warm enough. A wisp of fresh morning air caresses my face.

Thrilling finish to a memorable trip

Contd from here ….. A trip to Sikkim

Plan for next day was local sight seeing which was to start at around 10 since we were quite late to hit the bed on first night.

Club Mahindra trip

It all started when I received a message from Lakshmi; it would be a gross understatement if I call her just a traveller.

Sikkim memories

I have returned from an awesome trip of Sikkim. Fully soaked in misty romance and may I mention here that it was never enough for me?
Early sunrise with sun peeping out of clouds, clouds walking on drenched mountains and soft mist caressing us… what more one could ask for ?

Awesome sights and great company, serious discussions and light hearted banters proved to be the icing on the cake. Hospitality of Club Mahindra’s Royal Demazong gave us all the warmth we needed in those cold mountains.

Here is a photo from this trip. A detailed post will come soon. … Read the rest

Sikkim calling…

By the time you read this post, I would have started towards my next destination.

Yes, I am travelling again… this time to the beautiful and mountainous locale of Sikkim. This will be my first visit there.

Club Mahindra has invited me to join its select group of Travel bloggers/writers and photographers, some of whom I know through their blogs but have never met them in real. It’s time now to complete the puzzle of matching names and faces.
