  • Barot valley – a gem in Himachal

    Barot valley – a gem in Himachal

    Last weekend, visited Barot valley in Himachal Pradesh. Barot is a small town away from the hustle bustle of other touristy “hill stations” in Himachal. There isn’t much mention of this place over the internet and based on the handful of posts I could find about this, it was clear that this was a place […]

    Incredible Spiti – a road trip

    Spiti, literally meaning “the middle land” between India and Tibet, is a desert mountain valley and the whole region is one of the least populated regions of India. I did a (lazy) photo blog after coming back from Spiti but never sat down and wrote this detailed post. Finally writing it, hoping this should help […]

  • How I did my first bike trip and how you can do it too!

    How I did my first bike trip and how you can do it too!

    Since  long, I’ve been wanting to go to some hill station by bike and spend  some time with nature. The freedom that comes going on a bike (as opposed to public transport), and the ease with which a bike makes  places accessible is amazing. Not to mention that riding bike on a  national highway, as […]

  • Please drive carefully!

    Today morning, while going to office on my bike, I met a small accident and it was my fault. Me, and my friend who was sitting behind, were lucky on so many levels, that I am hoping I would be able to walk properly by tomorrow and the friend was able to continue to office […]
