That day was different. The skies were echoing unique tales. As we drove towards our destination, which seemed some 300kms away, the GPS broke. There were no phone connections. It was already 8pm but we couldn’t see anyone around. We continued driving thinking that it would lead us to our destination.
Our souls became apprehensive as the skies roared with lightenings, heavy downpour was about to lash us. The hilly turns became twisty and slippery. There were quite a few waterfalls on the passage, but no life could be seen. Where were we venturing into? There was a feel of … Continue Reading

When you are eager to go to bed early in the night excited to witness the aromatic and chirpy mornings. When you look forward to read your favourite book, sipping espresso and surrounded by the snowy

Spazio Resort – Hotel review, GOA!
Goa in off- season? It was the question everyone was throwing at us when we shared our plans to visit GOA in the first week of August with our then to-be-turning 1 year old toddler. GOA is vibrant from Oct – May and then goes in hibernation mode for 4 months as the rains progresses and leaves zero possibility for Water sports and Shacks to remain open. So the tourist inflows drops by 75%-80%, and only those who want some calm rainy-beachy outing plan then. Well, we were in this category!
We had booked … Continue Reading
