Going abroad is definitely one of the best ways to make family memories, however, it is also a complicated issue, one you have to be prepared for. The safety becomes an even greater paramount and your itinerary has to change a bit in order to suit everyone. If not, you need to be inclusive of the activities you wouldn’t attend on your own or at least those you wouldn’t consider if it was just you and your partner.
Apart from this, your commute and lodging habits slightly change as well. All in all, what … Continue Reading
“To travel is to live and blossom”
And this quote suits me as I live to Travel, to explore the magnificent nature, to meet beautiful people, dive into the history and greet the heritages across the world.
I had been bitten by the travel bug way back when I was a kid. But then, the motives were just to unwind and have fun. In this beautiful journey the motives have changed to numerous vision and missions which are to be achieved.
After travelling more than 60 cities, 7 countries, It was certain for me to accept that “I love the … Continue Reading
Periyar National park, Kerala
Thekkady or Periyar Tiger Reserve? Are they all same and what do they entail? A Tiger reserve? Then why not a Tiger Safari, just like other Tiger Reserves? Why only a boating in a lake? Can we go for trekking also here? What all are the safari options available here?
So many questions were buzzing in my mind, when we were planning to visit Thekkady (Periyar) and to our sheer disappointment, none of the search reads could solve the curiosity.
So, FOTW shall try to share with you an exhaustive post of Periyar tiger Reserve and … Continue Reading

Poovar Island was the last backwaters we did during our fabulous Kerala break recently. Reading out some really amazing reviews, Team #FOTW thought to give it a try while staying at Trivandrum and after enjoying at Kovalam beach.
Planning for mesmerizing Periyar national Park?
What exactly is Poovar Island ?
Poovar is approx. 28-30kms south of Kerala’s capital – Trivandrum or Thiruvananthapuram. Rather than calling it an Island, I would say that it is a tiny coastal village, far away from the humongous crowds which has helped it maintain its pristine beauty. The word Poovar means – Flower River, … Continue Reading
