Radisson Blu Hotel, Dwarka: Staycation

Vacations are our favorite thing to do, especially during this time of the year. But it is not always that you can take a week off from work and head to an exotic location or go on an adventure trip. For all such busy times, a weekend staycation getaway is the perfect thing! Staycations (where you go to a hotel to unwind, and not necessarily step out during the course of your stay) are fast becoming the favorite weekend activity of frequent but busy travellers. They are the perfect way to unqind and relax without having to drive/ fly long distances and pack the bags heavily. Hotels in and around your city are the best best for such times!

We recently went down to Radisson Blu Hotel, Dwarka New Delhi for a staycation and loved every bit of our stay.exterior_1440x550 Continue reading Radisson Blu Hotel, Dwarka: Staycation

Popular Treks in the Himalayas

The majestic Himalayan mountains bordering Northern India have attracted thousands of people from all over the world. Some people say they find God in the Himalayas. Whether or not you find God there, a trek in the Himalayas is sure an unique, lifetime experience. Be it the low oxygen levels, the biting cold weather, dangerous spots in the trail, being in the middle of nowhere… and you are panting, out of breath… You wish to go back to your cosy bed in the hotel from where you started. You know the destination is far, far ahead. And you are stuck in between, breathless in a no-man’s land. And it becomes a matter of survival then… Its a state where the mind blanks out and your higher self takes over. Every trekker in the group stops talking and somehow at this moment, everyone is more connected than anytime else… stopping to help others cross dangerous places, offering water bottles…

Udaipur travelogue

Hey everyone!

I took a trip down to the city of Lakes, Udaipur in December 2015, and I have no clue what took me so long to pen down this travelogue. Maybe the 2000+ pictures in the archive and the constant battle to decide which ones to upload and which ones to leave out!

We had a week-long trip to Udaipur, and if you go by the regular tourist itinerary, it shouldn’t take you more than 4 days to cover all the tourist attractions. But since ours was a slightly long trip, we got ample time to relax and also visit the spots which normally tourists do not visit when on a short trip. Got you all the details below. Enjoy! 🙂

Udaipur is a short 1 hour flight away from Delhi, and the weather over there is perineally hot during the day. During December, the nights were slightly nippy, but comfortable. I’d recommend taking clothes which can be layered on top of each other to keep you comfortable with the changing temperatures during the day.

Our trip began with an evening at the Saheliyon ki Baari (Courtyard of Maidens), a garden structure which Maharana Sangram Singh got made for his queen and her friends to take a stroll in in the evenings, complete with lush green gardens, a fountain amidst a lotus pool, etc. One thing you’ll notice when entering this Baari is that the fountains around the entrance spurt water when you clap around them. No idea what the mystery behind the same is, but it was fun!

Best international travel destinations for 2016

Hi all,

Hope you enjoyed my previous post on best places to visit in 2016 in India for every month. For those who are looking to travel abroad this year, here are is a month-by-month itinerary for international destinations around the world.

January: Norway

Watching the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights is a once in a lifetime, unforgettable experience. And January in Norway is the darkest month with the longest possible window to see the lights. There are many tour operators offering Northern Light cruises where the crew will provide wake-up calls when the viewing is best. You can sleep in a real snow hotel, go on dog-sledging, snowmobiling, spot some exotic wildlife like polar bears, arctic foxes and reindeers.

Hyatt Regency, Gurgaon: Staycation

Hey everyone!

We have seen a few long weekends just go by, and there are three more coming up before the end of the year. And while it is always a good idea to book yourself a flight ticket and fly down to an exotic location, some of us just do not enjoy being in crowded touristy places for every vacation. Sometimes, you just need to be away from home, yet just relax and do just about nothing like sightseeing and too much travelling. I, for one, am that kinda person who loves such lazy vacations where I can pamper myself to the core!

So last month, our Team set out for a quick vacation to Hyatt Regency, Gurgaon. Since we are based in Delhi (south Delhi, to be precise), the property was just a quick 1-hour drive away from our side of Delhi. This distance made the hotel location just perfect in terms of accessibility. The property is about 45 minutes away from the Delhi airport.

Upon reaching the hotel, we were welcomed by the warm and cheerful staff. The waiting lounge at the hotel is in itself a huge space, which leads you to the lounge where you can grab a quick coffee or a drink and relax for some time, if you choose to stop-over at the hotel during your journey.
