We are running a bit late … hurriedly making our way to the main road from our hotel. The sun has almost set and it has started to become cold. The evening breeze is not so gentle, in fact it’s not a breeze at all. We can call it wind … strong wind. My hair is restless, probably trying to fight a losing battle with the wind. I adjust my muffler around my neck and hands go in my jacket’s pocket.
It was late afternoon by the time we reached this small town of Tiberias situated on the western coast of the Sea of Galilee, in a region called Lower Galilee in Israel. Well the Sea is not really a sea but a lake. The sky was clear and sunny. Town maybe small but it has a huge relevance to the 3 major mono-theistic religions of the world.
Today early morning (started at 5:30 AM) we headed to Barcelona airport. Saying Goodbye is always a difficult task but had to do it to my new friends who were going back to India.
After that started my ‘Me’ time…. solo travel in Spain. Took a Renfe train for Zaragosa. During the one & half hour journey the train got delayed by 2 minutes and the announcer was profusely apologizing for it. Quite unheard of it in India? 😛
I am back from a road trip to Ahmedabad. My first time in Gujarat.
I did not read anything nor had any opinions about the city prior to my visit and that was the good thing about my trip.

Cancún is located on the north-easterly shore of the Yucatán Peninsula, overlooking the enticing Caribbean Sea. A popular destination for holidays to Mexico, Cancún’s tourist zone is built on a coral island with extensive white beaches, warm seas, a tropical climate and thriving night life.
Before European settlers arrived in Central America, the whole Yucatán Peninsula was home to the renowned Mayan civilisation that built and mysteriously left behind some stunning ruins and monuments. Some of the best sites are located in and around Cancún, and there are more that are being excavated in the jungle.
Having backpacked to many countries for months together, I must say Malaysia is one of the countries where you’d love to do backpack, especially in Kuala Lumpur.
The place boasts of cultural diversity in terms of Chinese, Malay and Indian cultures. KL, as it is fondly called, employs every charm to lure a backpacker like me. Independent travel is popular as the city has a very low crime rate and English is widely spoken.
