Ladakh in winter – just the mere mention of these words conjures up images of snow-capped mountains, frozen rivers, deserted roads, barren landscape sprinkled with snow and affectionate locals.

A quiet stroll down the streets of this historic city, lined with blue painted and white-washed stucco houses, and you will discover Jodhpur- the Blue City. Apt to its name, the skyline of this famous city of Rajasthan emanates an azure hue that blends with the crimson sky of sunrise and sunset. Picture-perfect, isn’t it? But this can be a reality. Provided you look at Jodhpur with an entirely fresh perspective. We highly recommend booking a Jodhpur taxi service to make the most of this city. Of course, Jodhpur is known for its forts, palaces, monuments and all things historical. But what if you explore this desert city with a new take. Here’s how to take an offbeat tour of Jodhpur: Take a desert safari of the rural hinterland, just outside the city limits. Blaze the sandy trails in a jeep and see how the sandy smoke blends on the horizon.   Be an audience to a wedding parade passing by. You could also hop on the bandwagon and shake a leg if you please. And with a small request, they might even get you clicked with their group. A souvenir money cannot buy.   Embark on a food trail […]

We have been here in Dublin, Ireland for a year now. During this time we have been on a road trip along the Wild Atlantic Way. We have been to Italy, Spain, Belgium, Bali and so many other places in India. But, there is one place in Dublin that we had been planning to visit and procrastinating for a year now — Howth. It has been on our radar since last year January and we finally visited the place. Howth is an Irish village on the North side of Dublin and is very well connected by public transport from the city. We started from the City Center and reached Howth in 40 minutes.  We started pretty late from Dublin so we went straight to the Howth Summit. The Cliff Walk at Howth Summit is quite popular among locals as well as tourists. But unfortunately, it was too windy and cold for us to complete the walk. We stayed there for an hour, took tons of pictures and headed back to Howth market. The views were gorgeous and the sunset was stunning. Here are some pictures from our day trip from Dublin to Howth Summit over the weekend. SHOP THE LOOK   […]

More than the blogging part of Travel Blogging, we take the Travel part very seriously. Blogging is a crazy world. We are still clueless on how did we dabble in this world. A lot has happened —  fam trips, loads of collaboration, digital marketing campaigns, growth in traffic, winning contests and loads of exciting opportunities.  The blogging journey so far has been a roller coaster ride. At times it has been too demanding but we have been in love with this journey so far and are extremely grateful for all the opportunities. Be it flying business class with British Airways to afternoon tea at Landmark London, from a stay in a luxury suite of Oberoi Cecil Shimla to fully sponsored trips to Malaysia, twice. There have many other amazing collaborations that have happened with the best of brands. Don’t get us wrong, this post is not about self-promotion and/or exaggeration. This post is all about the mistakes that we have made along the way and the learning over the years from these mistakes. We get way too many emails every day asking how do we manage to travel so much, blogging tips,  how to get freebies and many other queries. So, we thought we will do a travel blogging series sharing […]
