Review – Why I Fell In Love With This Backpack ?

2

 

If you are a true traveler at heart, you know how important the travel accessories are. The right accessories can make your journey smooth as well as memorable. And I never compromise with the brand.

I love ‘Wrangler’ products and have been using them for the past two years. Here, I am reviewing a backpack (they call it bikepack), which I recently purchased. Eye-catching design, excellent features and attractive price propelled me to buy this product.

Enough space to hold a number of items, from a DSLR to folded umbrella. This is one perfect backpack and I would say every traveler must have it.

Features: Easily adjustable shoulder strap,ย padded laptop compartment,ย 3D mesh cushion at back, top ‘W’ switch, organizer, raincover, coated water-resistant fabric, mobile pouch on strap, multiple compartment and bottle holder on sides

I bought it just for INR 2,000/- (USD 29). If you ask me,ย I would rate this backpack 9 out ofย 10 ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S: This is a genuine review, not asked by the company.

Tosh

How will you describe a place like Tosh, which is not far away from Kasolย (However, you have to hire a taxi to visit this place)

Blessed with natural beauty, Tosh can easily motivate anyone to visit the village. This was what I felt the moment I landed there.

A small village with couple of colorful guesthouses and restaurants, Tosh is a place for those who look forward to attain mental peace and mediate in the lap of nature.

If you love nature photography, then this place will not disappoint you. I will suggest you to stay there for two days and enjoy the nature.
Now, I want you to go through the images, which might be helpful in motivating you to visit Tosh !

DOR DE MUNTE – A Big Party In Poiana Brasov

Thanks to my friend Leon, I attended a huge party in Poiana Brasov, Romania. Attending a party in an European country has its own charm. You come to learn many things. Nice people, excellent weather and great music made my day. I came to know through my friends that they organize such a party once in a year. Oh Boy ! I was lucky ๐Ÿ™‚ All the images were taken by Xiaomi Mi 4.ย  Multumesc to great people like Alex and Leon !!!!

Paragliding In Bir And Billing

Where – Bir & Billing, Kangra, Himachal Pradesh.

Why – It is close to New Delhi and has a reputation to provide best service not only in India but also in Asia.

Service Provider – (Friends tour and travel) http://www.birbilling.com/

Tips – Do carry a small video camera to capture your experience. They charge Rs 500/- and the quality is not up to the mark. Also do carry a windcheater.

Climate – Your paragliding depends on the weather. It must be clear, windy and sunny.

Experience – Mind-blowing. The images say it all.

Lansdowne – A Breath Of Fresh Air

This year, I turned 35 (though for me age is just a number). ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted to celebrate my birthday in a different way by traveling to a place where I can play with nature.

IMG_5074

I always love to explore tiny and unknown places and Lansdowne turned out to be just perfect.

Situated in Pauri Garhwal district in Uttarakhand, this is a kind of place where every traveler like me wants to embrace it.

The moment I landed there, I realized what I was missing in smoky Delhi – a cool and calm environment. I was smiling because I knew it was going to be a memorable trip.

Surrounded by thick oak and blue pine forests,ย Lansdowne is home to many high-end resorts, but I opted for a small hotel.

My day started with lots of enquiries with a local person and I found that there is not much to explore in the quite hill station.

Bhulla Tal is one place, which I really liked. Just sit and read a novel there and I am sure it will make your day.

But what did I actually do in this cantonment town ? Hiking and hiking and so I recommend this place to anyone who is fond of hiking.ย  And hiking completed my trip.

Surprisingly, I did not find many tourists here.

I will strongly recommend a visit to this cantonment town to all women travelers. Be sure of 100% safety.

Small town, small article. ๐Ÿ™‚ The End !!!

Scintillating Singapore

Given a chance, I will make my second home in Singapore, a cosmopolitan city where many people come from different parts of the world in quest of jobs and settlements.

My visit to Singapore was short yet memorable. I covered some parts of the city by walking as I prefer, it’s the best medium to explore a new place. My stay at Swiss Hotel made the trip sweet. ๐Ÿ™‚ A classy hotel in terms of style and hospitality.

This city is full of stunning skyliners yet it has plenty to offer for everyone from casino lovers to zoo lovers. The following places must be included in the itinerary.

1) Sentosa
2) Double Helix Bridge
3) Chinatown
4) Botanic Gardens
5) Little India
6) The Singapore Flyer
7) Arab Street

Luckily, I managed to visit all these places and Arab Street turned out to be the best one for me as one can find cool bars here. ๐Ÿ™‚

There is no dearth of restaurants in the city but most of them are expensive. So be careful where you eat and what you eat. If you are an Indian, then you will surely like Little India.

I had a nice time at Paulaner Brauhaus (recommended by a chauffeur) and for the first time I tasted Paulaner beer, but I can’t say whether I liked it or not as I was completely lost. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also spent a nice evening at an open Japanese restaurant, surrounded by beautiful candles.

Don’t forget to enjoy Singapore’s nightlife though it could be racy.

People are very friendly. Whenever I asked something, they guided me thoroughly. One thing which I did not like was the climate – too much humidity – might also spoil your mood!

It was indeed a memorable visit for me as I learnt many things from the city and its people.

Well civilized and well cultured people make a great nation !!!!!

P.S. – Chewing gum is banned in Singapore. So be careful ๐Ÿ˜›

Coffee in Bangkok ?

There is something about Bangkok – a city which I often call ‘poor men’s Las Vegas’. It will never disappoint you even if you have visited it more than 1,000 times. Delicious food, cheap booze, pubs, street shopping, not to mention the cosmopolitan atmosphere makes the city a heaven for an impulsive traveler like me.

My two days stay in ChinaTown was memorable, though not exciting. Nothing much to share except one unique discovery – a chic coffee shop in the heart of the town.

So from where could I have started my journey after stepping out of my hotel? I had no idea, no map and I personally don’t much like the idea of guides! I thought, let’s start a random journey.

I skipped my breakfast deliberately so that I could indulge myself in food straight from the streets of Bangkok.

To my delight, I found a nice joint of prawn rice and assorted fishes where I enjoyed a served hot meal with a bottle of local beer. Sorry no picture to share. So try to imagine it yourself. ๐Ÿ˜›

I kept walking and walking with a mild smile on my face for the passer byes. The climate was hot and humid but I liked it because it nonetheless liberated me from my hotel room as I was amid a buzzing street.

Suddenly, I saw something. Wait. Is this a coffee-shop? An interesting signboard – Coffee, Tea or Me?

IMG_8524

The shop was surrounded by many tiny shops and it is not so easy to spot such eateries unless you have eagle eyes like me, not to mention, a stomach that is all up for surprises ๐Ÿ™‚

I entered the shop without a single thought and slow motioned towards a seat as I grasped all the details of a shop with the interesting signboard. Now I was searching for the ME.

IMG_8521

I had never imagined that I would find an elegant coffee shop amidst busy streets. It was neither Starbucks nor Costa Coffee but the coffee shop managed to grab my attention, thanks to its simplicity and interiors that helped you to laze. Do we have to really mention โ€“ Anything can happen over a cup of coffee? What a dumb thought. Anyway!

IMG_8512

I saw two people there sitting besides two attendants.

When I queried about something, one man approached me with a smile and said, โ€œMay I help you?โ€

He turned out to be the ME of the shop.

I told him: “Your shop look nice. Can you please recommend something to drink here?”

Instantly, he asked a waitress in local language to serve some hot coffee to me.

It was Espresso, if I remember correctly. I checked some photographs that I had clicked in my camera during the stroll and pleased myself with the cup of coffee. I guess I have never seen such a gracious coffee shop in India.

IMG_8520

As I left I could feel a sense of satisfaction to discover such a nice not to mention inexpensive coffee shop in Bangkok. Wish I had noted down its address as I could not even Google it!!

Only memories are with me. !!!
