Hi guys !
To top it all Cheers to this blog where people like us can share our travel experiences . Its great to be one amongst those who help in people around the world know and see the beauty of God's creation .
I Hail from Chennai , Tamilnadu . Photography and cooking has been my passion since childhood .
CRISP intro - I'm a Traveller by nature, Graphic designer by profession and day-dreamer at heart !
My Husband and I used to be two crazy souls stuck in the Matrix of IT / Media world . He still continues to be one and I've quit . We are the super curious people for everything, be it knowledge, travel, food (yummy
), gadgets, music, etc. We believe in living the life to the fullest and glean small small magical moments from time to create a timeless scrapbook of happiness and love.
The travel bug has stung us hard! We just love to travel and wish to conquer the whole world. India being such a diverse country, we feel that how ever often you travel it is not enough to see and appreciate all of India. So we are on a constant push to go on traveling as much as we can. The life is too short and we have to make many journeys!
We have been to a lot of places together, driving from Manali to Srinagar in just 10 days, to the lush green coffee estates of Coorg, to the lovely sights of East-Coast-Road (Chennai to Pondicherry), the ever-green and beautiful Kodai Kanal, to the God's own country (Kerala) from Bangalore, to the quiet and serene Masinagudi. We feel that our journey has just begun and the world is waiting out there for us to come, see and conquer!
We just love drives on highways; they give us a sense of freedom !! Its amazing to drive on amazingly straight roads, which makes you feel that one is straight away driving into the horizon. The Chennai-Pondicherry highway is amazing for a refreshing driving parallel to the coast. It’s like, you are chasing the sea and racing along with it. And the Manali - Srinagar highway, oh boy, for its amazing hair-pin bends one after each other, like testing your guts.
Traveling indeed teaches a lot. It teaches about different cultures, how to deal with different people, and above all, how to survive in not-so friendly conditions. Traveling also brings out hidden fears and helps to tackle them. In short, traveling is the classroom for life.
I would like to mention that It’s great to know that people are taking the time to really explore their own country as well - something we all are often guilty of not doing. We fail to explore our own backyard . Many of my friends and cousins who have left for US n other places now realize how little they have seen in their own home country.
Blogs like these are definitely inspiring to those looking to embark on their own world travel journey, but it also shows that even the most exciting of trips can start right at home.

Pangong Lake also known as Pangong Tso , was one of my recent travel destinations during the Manali - Srinagar drive . I chose to start my first blog with this place beacuse to me its God's best canvas , where Mother nature reveals her beauty ! Pangong Lake is stretched over a length of 130km, bisected by International border between India and China. Its widest point is approximately 6km in distance. The Lake is situated at the height of 14500ft/4420m above sea level. The major portion of the Pangong Lake falls in Chinese territory; only ¼ part of the lake is in Indian Territory of Ladakh region. Pangong Lake is about 164 km drive from Leh, capital city of Ladakh, a province of state of Jammu & Kashmir. We drove from Leh to Pangong and ... read more
