Stunning Singapore – A man made beauty!

Singapore !!!! It’s a total man-made beauty. A small and beautiful country. The country known for its cleanliness, which also wears the crown for being the most cleanest country of the world !!! Singapore is just a 5 hours flight from Mumbai. As soon as you land, be ready to enter the best airport in the world called the “Changi Airport”. Let me tell you that it has already won the award for being the Best Airport 5 times in a row up till now. There is no best time to visit Singapore. It is an all year destination as the weather is almost same throughout the year. However, if you want to enjoy the Christmas celebration and decoration then December is the best month (which was my travel month too).   The climate is mostly rainy here. You can expect 15-20 mins heavy showers almost daily but after that it is dry as a desert. The temperature is always around 25 – 30 degrees Celsius and very humid. So while roaming, don’t forget to …

Dubai – The Queen of the East

A Trek to Dugarwadi through the Woods

Water flows across the rocks, The beauty seems to make the time stop, A waterfall, stands so tall, A beauty not often saw! – Pixie Young. The monsoon rains are here, pouring down, flowing fast in the drains. Monsoons – where the sky decides to undress it’s blue skin and yellow soul with rays of light caressing the warmth, trees with wet green eyes, dark clouds above the sea and the waves laughing out showing its white teeth. Such was my experience when I visited the Dugarwadi waterfalls in Nasik. One rainy day we decided to just get wet and ride on our bikes to explore Nasik and witness the pristine surroundings. So we moved on to the Trimbakeshwar roads where it’s a pleasure to ride with lush greenery everywhere. We went straight upto the checkpoint of Trimbakeshwar and there were 2 ways to go.. first one was to enter the Trimbakeshwar which I had seen before twice or thrice and the second was the unexplored way. It seemed like it was calling me! And …

Cryptic Chamarel

Cryptic because its hard to understand Chamarel. Chamarel is nothing but the 7 coloured earth in Mauritius. This geological formation is a relatively small area of sand dunes comprising of seven distinct colours of sand(approximately red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow). The main feature of the place is that since these differently coloured sands spontaneously settle in different layers, dunes acquire a surrealistic, striped colouring. The different colours of the earth are caused by decomposed basalt gullies, turned into clay. The colours are created by the chemical content present in the soil. It is said that if you mix the colours together, they will separate on their own. Chamarel is a wonderful mountain hamlet and an alternative to coastal Mauritius and all those beaches. At first you’ll notice shadows on the hills, creating the illusion of different colours, but soon you will realise that the colours are real and the shadows were the illusion. The best time to visit the Chamarel is during the sunrise. The sun rays distinguishes each and every colour …

Raise your glass at Sula Wines

  “Language is wine upon the lips.” Rightly said by Virginia Woolf.   To taste the best Indian wine one should definitely try to visit Sula wine which delivers the part city, part country side kind of wine in taste. This is my favorite place, whenever I’m in Nasik I definitely hang out here. The atmosphere here is awesome! The sky is so tragically beautiful that at night it seems like it is a graveyard of stars! Nasik is known as the Wine Capital of India and it has the most suitable climatic conditions for grape cultivation. Sula Vineyards founder Mr. Rajeev Samant took up the challenge of transforming barren lands of Nasik into wine farming stations. Sula Vineyards was officially established by Mr. Samant and Mr. Kerry Damskey, who happens to be an eminent Californian winemaker. Proud of its Indian heritage, Sula wines names the region on its bottles and uses an Indian logo – the sun signifying wine from warmer regions. Sula wines is about 170 kms from Mumbai. These days with the …

Victoria Terminus – Mumbai’s Hogwarts

  Victoria Terminus – Mumbai’s Hogwarts   Victoria Terminus, now rechristened as Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) is undoubtedly the famous architectural landmark in a Gothic-revival style. Complete architecture is worked with carved stone friezes, stained glass windows and flying buttresses. This monumental train station is the city’s most extravagant Gothic building and an aphorism for colonial-era India. But still to the 2.5 million commuters who push past its massive portals everyday, this is still VT, the pulse of a throbbing city. On every 26th January (i.e. on The Republic Day), CST is illuminated in the tricolor lights. CST has 18 bay platforms: 7 are for local suburban trains on the west side of the station and 11 are for long distance out-station trains on the east side of the station.The station has been the location of filming the “Jai Ho” song in Slumdog Millionaire and Ra.One. Also in 1956, the station was also featured in the film C.I.D. during the song “Yeh Hai Bombay Meri Jaan“. The Gateway of India, hotel Taj Palace, Colaba Causeway are just 10 mins from …

Mystical Mumbai – The city that never sleeps

Mystical Mumbai – The city that never sleeps   “They call it a city that never sleeps, Dreams at large; everything in heaps, Buzzing all the time, different people different cons, It has got its roses and its thorns.” People here will always say that they are busy with their afternoons making them lazy and with night plans like crazy. Trust me, life in Mumbai is not easy! The city has a lot of masti and a little of maska but it cannot live without the Bollywood Chaska. It’s the City of murmuring traffic and twinkling cars, the multi-millionaires & the movie stars. We’ve got it all, the vada-pav and the dance bars. Mystical Mumbai – where the local trains usually run on time & violently rushing for a seat is not a crime. Here, its as usual, 3 PM for lunch and 12 AM to dine. People face hardships, but still say “it’s fine”. Multi-lingual, multi-religious, city of unusual weather, I wouldn’t be wrong; if I say, it’s a city where the country comes together. …
