Ayurvedic Spa at the Chariot Beach Resort, Mahabalipuram

A Spa session is always relaxing, and it becomes even more exciting when you can view the soft waves breaking on a secluded beautiful beach. The Ayurvedic Spa at the Chariot Beach Resort offers this wonderful experience. I had the opportunity to experience the wellness at the Ayurvedic Spa at the Chariot Beach Resort in Mahabalipuram when I got invited to the Bloggers’ Retreat there. Read about my experience at the resort here. Of late, the lady at my Salon told me that SPA is actually an acronym for the Latin phrase “salus per aquae” or “sanus per aquae”...

Pushkar Fair – An extravaganza

A kaleidoscope of colours and a chaotic cacophony greeted me when I visited the Pushkar Fair this year. I have heard and read so much about this fair that in my mind I had already visited the place, traversed its alleys, took a dip in the holy lake while marvelling at the esoteric Brahma Temple and stared at the millions of camels displayed for trade.

A clear blanket of snow all...

Historical Hampi – a complete travel guide

Hampi was in our bucket list for long. The place has everything that could possibly pull us towards itself – the story of a lost kingdom, architectural marvels from our past that we could boast of and a rugged yet alluring landscape. Hampi being a UNESCO World Heritage site was an added attraction (my love for these old, dull, decaying structures is now well known to my readers). So Hampi had to be in our trip when we visited Karnataka this year. Table of contents: Where is the historical city Hampi? What is the History of Hampi? Story about...
