Egypt Travel Blog

Yet again, a long overdue travel blog is here. For a woman who has never set foot in another country, one might say Egypt is not a very safe ‘first time abroad option.’ I can tell you now from experience, that it is not true and as long as you are ready to blend into […]

Social media rant

Okay if you have no intention on reading a rant, kindly spare us both the negativity and stay away. It’s been less than 24 hours since I reached home from a very fulfilling, soul enriching trip to Egypt. I’m sitting with my parents, showing them a few tiny things I picked up for the house […]

But you’re such a brave girl

I think that’s all I hear from everyone I meet anymore. That’s all they can seem to say, seeing my unlined eyes and messy hair. Am I, really? Because I don’t feel it at all, at least not in the past month. Everything seems to be crumbling down faster than I’m able to run around […]

Is Happiness a choice?

Happiness is a state of mind. Your state of mind. Who do you think is responsible to keep it peaceful/sane? I think happiness is a personal choice. I didn’t approach it that way before but now, I do strongly feel it’s a choice. Your choice. It’s easy to sit back and think you are a […]

Dandeli 2018

Having mostly taken off on leisure vacations before, Dandeli showed me how extremely different an adventurous trip was from them. Two girls, one two wheeler and a forest to sum it up in a sentence. We took a sleeper bus from Bangalore to the Dandeli bus stand. With a package pre-booked with Rangers Camp homestay, […]

Hampi 2018

As architects, we consider every site visit an opportunity to explore the surroundings. Lucky for us, our site happened to be in Hospete the node for travellers heading to Hampi, a heritage site recognized by UNESCO. We took a train to Hospete where our site was (they’ve introduced flights as well since last week.) Once […]
