How to spend 2 days in North Goa

You probably must be thinking why one would need to read about Goa? A trip to Goa is supposed to be the result of drunk-planning. Fortunately (or unfortunately), we are not really the ‘let’s drunk-plan a trip’ kind of people. Vikas had been to Goa before but it was my first time and I wanted to explore the less-explored parts of Goa, indulge in its innate...

Your guide to spending a quaint weekend in Pondicherry

It would be safe to say that Pondicherry to Bangalore is like Dharamshala to Delhi, but with beaches instead of hills. I remember I used to run away to Dharamshala every other weekend because it seemed like the only sensible thing to do when I craved a slow-paced life. Why slow-paced, you ask? I always tell people I was born in the wrong time. I was born in the 90s...

Pros and cons of traveling with a full time job that nobody talks about

Let’s face it! Who wouldn’t want to travel full-time? It’s like asking someone – hey! do you want to quit your 10 hours a day, 6 days a week, boring as hell job that pays you to do half the things you don’t care about, half the things you don’t agree with and go chill in the Himalayas? Who on earth would say no to that? I have spent days, weeks actually...

How to spend 3 days in Karnataka – with Zoomcar

If you have lived in Bangalore but never explored the countryside, then have you really lived in Bangalore? After returning from Varkala, we were eyeing for another opportunity, a new place we had never been before. It took us a day to set our heart on Madikeri, especially when so many of our oh-so-awesome followers suggested it on Instagram. While planning the whole...

Varkala Amidst a Cyclone

Note: If you have read any of the Traversed Lands’ articles before, you will find this one different. It is not an experiment with my writing style. It is just a story that I thought I needed to tell. If you wish to only read about the planning, budgeting and places, please skip the prologue.   Prologue: The Cyclone This was long due. After leaving Indore for my...

A serene weekend at The Jim Corbett National park with The Riverview Retreat

Travel is therapeutic and we are sure you would agree too. If you’ve been following our blog, then you know we’d go to lengths to stay close to nature. And that’s precisely why we decided to spend a weekend right outside the Jim Corbett National Park. Out of all our trips around the northern parts of India, we have to admit- this was one of the most relaxed and...

Meghalaya: Making an abode in Heaven

When we told our friends about our wish to visit Meghalaya, we received many questions and suggestions- “it’s not safe.” “People there eat anything.” “It’s flooded.” “You will be treated as an outsider.” Et cetera. Now that we are back after spending 6 days in Meghalaya, we would like to say this out loud- it is...

Bir Billing: Paraglide in Paradise

There are many places in India where you can go for paragliding but no place offers a view like Bir Billing. A centre for eco-tourism, Bir is a home to many Tibetan refugees and Buddhist monasteries. When we decided to visit Bir, we were only looking forward to a peaceful stay and an incredible paragliding experience, little did we know about the cute little cafes...

Jibhi: A weekend getaway to the Himalayan Haven

Close your eyes and imagine being in a place where the loudest sound you hear is of a chirping bird, or a babbling brook, or a gust of wind playing with your hair. A place that has every hue of green and blue. A place where you sit in a garden surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Well, it’s not mere imagination, it’s a small village named Jibhi in...
