“…because life is too exciting to not share.”
Hullo! I’m Shikha, the founder of Nomad Scribblings, a travel blog about India. I’m a solo traveller in search of surprises in India. Here, on my blog, you will find my travel stories from across India, photo essays that capture my trips – right from the cold, high altitude deserts of Spiti to the solitary beaches of Diu to the surprisingly beautiful backwaters of Kerala. Plus, the very enchanting north-eastern India. More often than note, you’ll find anecdotes from my solo trips here.

Owing to the huge number of queries that I've received on the first post "How to plan a trip to the Rann of Kutch?", I have compiled a list of the most popular questions on visiting the Rann Utsav, Rann of Kutch and other related queries and made a Rann Utsav festival...read more
If you have been following me on my journeys, you would know for how long I have been travelling. So much so that my career trajectory is pretty much shaped by them. Six years of work, followed by a sabbatical for travelling, followed by a full-time job again to fund...read more
This one did not dawn on me till the day Mum asked why I keep going to that specific beach in Goa every year, on my birthday. Perhaps, like most parents, she was keen that I get value for my travel money by getting to newer places rather than landing at the same...read more
If you have a motorbike trip in the Himalayas on your mind—one that does not leave you with a complaining back—the road to Alchi from Leh is just the thing that you need. At around 65 km from Leh, Alchi is a place that will take you back in time, by hand and by soul....read more
My love for the Himalayas is no secret. If you are a regular on my blog here or on Instagram, you must be knowing it already. Those mountains are perhaps the strongest lure I have ever felt in life, and thus I keep going back. Often asked about the point of visiting...read more
