What is vacationing? Well, that’s how #FOTW described it post our snow-laden trip to Dalhousie.
When you open the gate of balcony to see infinite layers of trees covering up mountains instead of the crowdy lanes rushing towards tall office buildings. You don’t need an alarm clock to wake you up rather the peeping sun-rays from the glass windows do the trick. 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.
