Travelling and Travel Blogging

I love travelling and sharing my travel stories here on my blog.  It’s a collage of my beautiful experiences on the road – experiences with people, places, cultures and traditions and last but in no way the least, my experiences with the native food of the places I visit.

I love travelling for it gives me the freedom to be me. I love climbing hills and mountains, wandering around trails shadowed by huge pine trees, crossing new streets, waking up as a stranger in a strange town, meeting new people, making new friends, eating new food, experiencing new culture – in fact taking in everything that a place has to offer!

If I were to tell you about my favourite trips and travel memories, then this one sided conversation would probably just go on and on. So I will tell you about one of my favourite trips – It was when I went all the way up to Mcleodganj in Himachal Pradesh and stayed there on my own for a couple of months.

The lovely family I lived with!

In Mcleodganj, I lived with a local family who took care of my lodging and boarding, and my days there were spent wandering deep into the mountains exploring the waterfalls and local tribes settled there. I also participated in quite many adventure and volunteering activities there. One volunteering activity that I always cherish would be working at a child care centre looking after Tibetan kids who either had a single parent going to work daily or were parent less. I think this was a great experience, contributing my bit as a traveller.

Here are some pictures from the days spent at Mcleodganj.
