The Nagpur City might not have been on the limelight for many reasons, but it is sure not to remain so for long. Not because I hail from this city, but because it is actually undergoing an expansion of its lifetime, in all spheres, including tourism. In the midst of all this, Nagpur City also has its own list of hidden treasures awaiting for the rest of the world to know. This weekend, I moved out to find out some of the unspoken ones for the rest of the country to explore, when they happen to walk into the city.

And for some reason, if he can’t, he must find ways to get lighter to travel happy!
One of the most annoying things about traveling to any place is the one day or half day layovers, which are not as long enough for you to step into a hotel nor short enough for you to drag on with your baggage.
In Delhi, however, the airport line metro comes up with the solution to this challenge. I have happened to mention a few times how you can use the services of the Delhi Airport Line Metro to get your luggage on the flight beforehand, so that you are ‘hands free’ to explore the city.
In this post, let’s find out some of the ways you can do a ‘no baggage’ tour to New Delhi.Continue Reading "How to take a ‘No Baggage’ tour to New Delhi"
There are certain places in India which you can cherish in its own unique ways and no way else. For example. if you are traveling to Leh, there is no better way to explore it without a road trip.

Speaking of getaways to hill stations closer to the city such as Matheran and Lonavala, Hotels in Matheran and Lonavala are available in plenty because of the increased population. There is no better way to explore Lonavala without embarking on the memorable train journey.Continue Reading "The Train Journey to Lonavala"
As the first week of January stepped in, every year, I would break open my tin coin box (I hated the word piggy bank) and counted how much I have collected for buying the new set of kites. I had the old ones too. Some kites, I made myself, using the plastic from the package boxes. They used to be rugged, and would sometimes stand the occasional uninvited rainfall too, prevented from getting withered away like paper kites. And did they fly; they flew with enough strength to leave fine lines of cuts on my index finger. Today, when I stop to think about it, I realize how kites shaped the way I dealt with situations in life.
On this trip to Pune, I traveled to the uptown and trendy locality of Baner, having the costliest properties of Pune City. Baner also has a lot of traditional properties, restaurants and markets which reflect the signature of the Pune traditions. However, unlike Kolkata, these traditional buildings also have evolved pretty well, maintaining their charm and liveliness with the modern times. This time, I wanted to check out the Fabhotels Chain for review and spotted one at Baner. Here’s a quick look into the Hotel Rajwada Baner.Continue Reading "Review: Fabhotels Rajawada Baner"
