Books, music, movies, people – there’s a lot that goes in your making. I, often, make for a curiosity-arousing subject owing to my love for “displacement” and travelling.
#TravelInspired posts move the spotlight from me to what made me. More coming. You can also follow the same on my Instagram account.
I perched myself on a rock at one of the Goa beaches, looking at the Sun going down the sea. A couple passed me, walking hand in hand into a beach shack. A woman sat flopped in the sand with a dog by her side. A couple of kids sped by on bikes, yelling in glee. Bob Marley’s ‘Don’t worry, be happy…’ started streaming from one of the beach cafes as the Sun dipped.
A number of awesome people have walked in the last year, and this number is set to increase in 2016 as I plan to organize a number of Insta meets (yes, Instagram is one of the new loves) in Delhi and other places that I intend to travel to. So, yes, I’ll be meeting you and a lot of new faces interested in travel, photography and storytelling.
Thus, I travel, in search of calm. If you too are searching for places to reconnect with nature or yourself, these are my pick for some of the most solitary and largely offbeat Indian places.
While most of the people swear by the backwaters of Alleppey, I loved the stretch of backwaters at Kumarakom. With little crowd that’s a feature of the Alleppey backwaters, Kumarakom is more of a peaceful venture.
