Top 10 Things To Do in Goa

1. Water sports It’s not just Goa’s beaches that are dotted with people. You can find them up in the sky as well, screaming their lungs out! Goa’s popular beaches are filled with various beach activities like parasailing, banana boat riding, jet-skiing, etc, and water sports are definitely among the top 10 things to do in Goa. Along with a brief list, I’ve also included some indicative prices. The activities

The Goa Guide

The Goa Guide – A cold hard fact about Goa before you travel From beautiful beaches to quaint, historical hamlets, Goa has lots to offer to different kinds of travelers. The truth about India’s sweetheart (considering it’s pretty much the unanimous choice for all kinds of holidayers) is that it has, over time, turned jaded and torn. Infested with all the possible tourist cliches, crowded and filthy beaches, overpriced accommodation and activities, and

The Gateway Hotel at Nashik – In good hands

We visited Nashik for an extended weekend as a belated birthday celebration for Charles. The idea was to do something relaxed, yet a little different from the usual beach-bumming in sweltering Goa. With a luxurious yet affordable Taj property, the much talked about and way overdue attraction- the Sula vineyards, and all of this just over 3 hours away on a lovely open road. It sounded like the perfect weekend

Sula Vineyard Tour and Tasting, Nashik, India

Sula Vineyard. For someone who drinks only wine, I was most excited about a weekend in India’s wine country. It meant a chance to finally visit the Sula vineyard; that produced the wine that I drank most often – Sula. It meant a chance to taste the gamut of their selections and finally find something I love. It meant a chance to stroll through the lovely vineyards, and listen to

Nashik Guide

With weekend jaunts to Pune, Matheran, Mahabaleshwar, Panchgani, Karjat and Lonavla becoming so de-rigueur, we had to set our sights elsewhere, hunting for someplace we hadn’t been to before, yet one that was close enough to drive down to by lunchtime. Oh, and it had to be exciting and different too. Nashik fit the bill perfectly. We’re so glad we went, and now you can too. Read on to plan

Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa, Mauritius – In pure luxury

Beach holidays, as mentioned in the Mauritius Guide, are all about where you stay, because you seldom want to wander far from the shore. And we were well, lucky enough to have that picked out for us. Picked out and gifted. For two people who love planning vacations and trips, we’re actually glad we didn’t get the time to plan this one out, it laid out the red carpet for a

The Mauritius Guide

Mauritius. The very word conjures images of sun kissed beaches, sparkling blue waters kissing sparkling white sands. The whimsical colours of umbrella drinks to the whimsical sounds of Creole music. For us, we were lucky enough to have our experience hand-picked for us as a wedding gift. So we just went with the flow, doing very little research and planning before our trip. But for you, for a vacation that’s supposed

Paris Flea Market – That’s one really big flea

Today was another big day for us and possibly the farthest we were going to travel (besides Versailles) on our Paris trip. We were heading to the famous flea market at Saint-Ouen, just outside the Périphérique. We left early, taking the RER B to Gare du Nord and from there, the Metro (line 4 to Porte de Clignancourt). Once you get off, you need to walk down just outside the
