Retirement home

Before you start looking for the pictures of my retirement home, here is the disclaimer : ‘I am not retiring. I am not planning to retire. Actually it’s just 6 years since I started working and most importantly, I am always broke. So I am not retiring and there is no retirement home….yet.’ But whenever…

Monsoon…my love.

I am back. After a not-so long not – so short break. I am actually not back in full swing. I want to apologize for the past 3 months and want to warn you that am gonna be missing for next 3 months too. Ah, am tired. I have been extremely busy since I moved…

Things to do in Varkala

I have been to this beautiful sea shore for more than 10 times. When I was in Trivandrum most of our weekend getaways were in or around Varkala, mostly because nothing can replace the feel, food or view at this place. So here, are a few things that you shouldn’t miss if you are visiting…

Kallar – Meenmutty waterfalls

We went to see the Meenmutty waterfalls on the same day we were at Ponmudi. This place comes on the way to Ponmudi. Kallar or Meenmutty is a place in Trivandrum which is almost 50 kms away from the city. If you are in Trivandrum or if u plan to visit Trivandrum anytime, do not…

Duke’s Room Interior

Duke’s Forest Lodge – the place where we stayed during our Ponmudi visit, is an awesome and less-known place. This is a resort in the middle of 200 acre rubber plantation and on the shores of kallar river. This is rightly placed on the foot of Ponmudi hills. You can read more about this place…

Ponmudi – The scenic wonder

To celebrate our engagement, we took a very short trip to some places around Trivandrum. I have been to Ponmudi before, but Meenu hasn’t…so we decided to go. Ponmudi is a small hill station which is almost 60 kms away from Trivandrum city. The word ‘Ponmudi’ means golden peak. And it indeed is one. I cant…

Happy Onam !!!

Let’s take a break from our Rajasthan trip details. It is Onam. How can I miss to update on that. As usual, we had wonderful celebrations in office. Everybody was traditionally dressed and looked gorgeous. We made flower carpet and had a very delicious feast. Next week, we will be repeating all this as part of…

A heavenly getaway in God’s Own Country

It was a very short summer-monsoon vacation. We decided to stick around Trivandrum itself as it was start of monsoon and our mode of transportation was my scooter. I didn’t want to get wet and catch cold and spoil my long awaited days off. So we were searching for places to go near Trivandrum other…

Travel diaries – Varkala

I have been thinking of writing about the weekend travels since a long time. I don’t travel frequently but whenever I do I feel I should share this with someone so that they wont miss out these places. I have a bunch of such places and pictures with me. Today I have to write about…

A beautiful evening

It was a holiday yesterday. A holiday on middle of the week…is something I don’t like. It doesn’t help me anyway other than sitting at home full day watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Well that’s something I love but not on a Wednesday 😦 . Anyway this is something which is out of my control so I think…
