Travelling is in my blood. Whenever the travel bug bites me I have to get out of my house to explore some new places, know some new culture and taste some new food. My love for travelling is eternal and it will keep grow as time progresses.
I’ve travelled to many places, within India, and explored many unknown horizons. I still remember my childhood days when I used to go to Digha & Puri with my parents very often. I was 8 or 9 years old that time but I could still remember those days of playing on the beach and my fear of getting into the sea where my siblings and parents were enjoying the waves. I went to a trip without my parents for the first time when I was in 8th standard. It was my school trip and we were travelling to the northern part of India covering Delhi, Haridwar, Rishikesh and other places. It was a great fun going with the group.

My instinct for travel keeps growing and I have also explored certain parts of Assam – primarily upper Assam. One of my friends has his house in Assam, so I was fortunate to travel to one of the seven sister states twice and both the time I stayed in his house. It was a great trip and enjoyed the beauty of the state.
My eternal love from travelling is contagious and it has affected my better half, my wife, Manasi too. After marriage, I gradually made her understand my love for travel and now she is also at the same frequency as mine and now we travel together. As I stay in Bangalore we are trying to cover as many places as possible in the southern India. Our latest trip was to Hampi during the last long weekend of Ganesh Chaturthi. Hampi is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in India. It was a fabulous trip and we enjoyed every possible nuke and corner of the place. But still, we feel that it is not yet covered completely and will make some time again soon to go for the second trip to beautiful Hampi. It would be an injustice if I don’t mention places like Mysore, Ooty, Coonoor, Kodaikanal, Kanyakumari, Rameshwaram, Madurai, Cochin, Trivandrum, Kovalam, Calicut, Coorg, Wayanad, Yelagiri, Beypore, Goa, Chennai, Pondicherry, Mahabalipuram, Vijayawada, Mumbai and Pune in this post where I have travelled. It’ll become a lengthy post if I capture all my travel stint in this one post and I don’t want to bore you.
My love for travelling will continue and I want the travel bug to keep biting me so that I can explore and experience new places. This love is never ending and will continue my travelling spree.
