The month of February usually focuses on the national budget. It is also about how certain products and services will become affordable and expensive based on the budget. For many travel bloggers like us travel is a part of our lifestyle and we have to focus on the expense part as well.
It all started with an Airbnb advertisement I saw on Instagram. Yes, that was the Big Bang moment that eventually led to this epic journey we had to Udaipur. Believe me, if you are trigger-happy photography enthusiasts like me and Sarah sorting the best images is really tough. While Sarah is busy with the images, I decided to write on our first Airbnb homestay in Udaipur. We believe this would be the right start to take this blog forward and share our honest experiences.
Going out in the rain, especially in India sounds like a bad idea on paper. There are many things that can go wrong when you travel during the rainy season. However, being stuck in your home or hotel is not really the best experience. When you are going out in the rain you need better planning that can help you exploring nature during monsoon. In India, the rainy season begins from July and stays until mid-October. During these months, the landscape changes considerably allowing you to explore nature. The parched and dry fields and hills transform into lush green spaces that are ideal for your Instagram profile. Let’s focus on the benefits of exploring nature during monsoon season in India.
It is hard to ignore the power of the Internet and social media these days. The visuals and content presented online are so convincing that we fall for it instantly. The images and video content you see and the words you read can misguide you. Hence, it becomes important for us as consumers to ensure that we choose the right products and services. Yoga was born in India centuries ago, but it has become a worldwide phenomenon now. Millions of people around the globe want to study yoga in India.
There is already so much said and written about yoga on the internet that it would overwhelm and confuse you. There are practitioners around the world in more than 100 countries that practice yoga and have made it a part of their lifestyle.
There are certain things in life that you don’t choose; it just becomes a part of it. Writing is one such thing that I didn’t choose, but now it has become an integral part of my life, both personally and professionally. While most people would see this as a great life where I get certain luxuries that they don’t there are certain things that most travel bloggers and professional writers don’t talk about.
Many people travel for many reasons. While some travel for business, some travel for pleasure. On the other hand, there are people that travel for photography, exploring new places, adventure and food. Chefs, food bloggers and vloggers usually travel for finding new food cuisines and local delicacies. However, there are many people that love food and want to try it out when they travel to India. So, are you among those who love to try local cuisines when travelling?
Apart from being passionate about travel, I love shopping. Not many of my friends think of me as a shopaholic, but believe me, if I was a billionaire, I would have had a shopping mall of my own. I love shopping anywhere, in the mall and on the streets. Mumbai’s Colaba area is one of the places where I used to hang out with my friends and now with Sarah.
The most exciting part of travel is that it is a completely unique experience. Even if you are travelling to the same place hundred times each will have a different experience. This makes it fun and challenging. Every journey is a story. There are so many travel stories in India that are just waiting to be told. So many travel stories just waiting to happen on your next trip. In this series, I will share my travel story and experience which could be good, bad, ugly, funny, weird and completely insane.
Ever since I started my travel blog, I have been getting questions from readers about different aspects of travel in India. In this blog, I have decided to answer some of the questions that will hopefully help my readers to travel in India safely and conveniently. The main aspect of this post will be on safety because I believe people are generally a bit scared of traveling to places where they haven’t been and the fear of unknown grips their attention at the back of their mind. After all, there are so many horror stories both true and fake ones that are on the internet. Safety is one of the critical factors for me since I usually travel with Sarah and I have to make sure that all things are in place and we don’t end up in a tricky situation and even if we do, we are prepared with Plan B to resolve the unexpected trouble.
