    Your thoughts are complimented well by your writings. I enjoy reading every bit of it.
    I wish you had something to say on the less known North East India which has can be a potential destination.

    • Thanks Trishanka! I’m yet to travel in the North East, though it’s been on my bucket list for a while. Maybe later this year 🙂

  3. I ran into your blog by accident, but I’m so delighted! I LOVE to travel and I also write (not yet about travelling, though). If you are looking for a travel-companion for your trip(s) please let me know. I’d be thrilled to take a few days off my corporate-life and backpack across wherever it is you’re going. I also take good pictures & can hold the camera & all for you. And I don’t tire easily and am not very finicky. So, you can consider me for treks & adventure-trips also.

  4. I love your blog…. and you have inspired me a LOT!!! I am so glad I jumped across it. 🙂 Looking forward to more posts from you because I too have a bite from the travel bug. 🙂
