Monthly Instagram Update – May 2015

Monthly Instagram Update – May 2015

I’ve been having a particularly rough time dealing with the Delhi summer this year!
The city feels like a furnace, and more than 5 seconds spent outdoors feels like my skin might be set ablaze any moment!

Needless to say, I’ve been hiding indoors and avoiding stepping outside of home / office as much as possible. June is turning out to be quite an uneventful month.

But before that, here’s a quick look back at the past month, flashed back through Instagram.

3 Girls & a #BlogAlong – My Travel Must-Packs

3 Girls & a #BlogAlong – My Travel Must-Packs

Welcome back to the monthly link-up guys! And yes, it’s a week late, but while yours truly has been roasting in the Delhi heat, 2 out of the 3 Girls hosting the #BlogAlong were off holidaying in far – off lands, and hence we decided to postpone the party by a week.

But let’s not waste another moment and get right to it, shall we?

This month, it’s all about our travel must-packs and must-haves, things we never travel without and things you’ll always find in our suitcases when we’re traipsing around the globe.

My Favourite Travel Souvenirs

My Favourite Travel Souvenirs

When I first heard that the topic for this month’s travel link-up hosted by the lovely ladies Kelly, Rebecca and Emma, with co-host Jaime was Travel Souvenirs; my first reaction was Oh No!

Not because it isn’t a great topic (it really is a superb one!), but because it had been on my mind as a potential topic for the 3Girls & a #BlogAlong monthly link-up party I recently started hosting myself!

But oh well… I’m sure I’ll come up with something else… :)

A Trek to Kareri Lake in the Dauladhar Mountains

A Trek to Kareri Lake in the Dauladhar Mountains

It’s a half past five in the evening and I’m roused from my reverie by the gurgling of the river nearby. A gentle breeze tickles my cheek and I open my eyes to the sound of… silence!

We’re somewhere in the middle of the mountains, in a clearing in the woods, where we have chosen to set up camp for the night. Behind me, the guide and porter accompanying us have just finished pitching the tents; these will be our home for the next 2 nights. I gaze upwards at the towering façade of the steep mountains around me, the thicket of tall trees on top are reaching for the skies. Giant boulders litter the ground around me, a constant hurdle on this trek to Kareri Lake and back.

Monthly Instagram Update – April 2015

“The bad news is that time flies…
The good news is that you’re the pilot…!”

Just thought I’d start the latest flashback post with a little quote I read recently that resonated with me deeply.

NEVER AGAIN… Lessons (I Hope) travel has taught me

NEVER AGAIN… Lessons (I Hope) travel has taught me

When I first read this topic for a monthly travel blogger’s link-up on my dear virtual friend Shikha’s blog, I couldn’t wait to write out my own entry. What a superb topic, I thought!

We’ve all had them. Those experiences which smack us with disappointment while they are happening, but end up teaching us important lessons for trips to come. The ones which make us stronger, maybe just a little bit wiser!

Introducing 3Girls & a #BlogAlong + Party Snacks for a Busy Bee / Lazy Lucy

Don’t you just love Link-Up Parties?

Well, I certainly do…!
I’ve joined some super awesome link-ups in the Travel Blogging world over the past year or so! Not only have these blogging parties introduced me to a whole bunch of amazing bloggers and opened me up to tonnes of inspiring posts to read, but they’ve also motivated me to blog more often in order to contribute to the link-ups regularly! Win-win, eh!

My Top 3 Travel Bucket List Destinations

My Top 3 Travel Bucket List Destinations

I’m going to be honest here, and just say it!
I DON’T HAVE A BUCKET LIST.

I haven’t pondered over the things I want to do before I die, or made a list of all the places I want to see before I kick the bucket. And for a change, it isn’t because I’m too lazy to make one, or because my ability to procrastinate is award-worthy.

I don’t have a Bucket List simply because I don’t want to limit myself!

I want to see everything there is to see; I want to do everything there is to do; and I want to go everywhere there is to go…!

Ambitious much?!
