Auroville – A Hippie Paradise or a Place Ahead of its Time?

Auroville – A Hippie Paradise or a Place Ahead of its Time?

I rose abruptly, as always, just moments before my 7 a.m. alarm would go off. Today was a big day; I was about to begin the most anticipated part of my first trip to Pondicherry [Read: Pondicherry – First Impressions] – a guided trip of Auroville. For the uninitiated, Auroville is an experimental township a few miles outside of Pondicherry city, conceived out of the vision ... Read More »

Digital Nomad Lessons: What I Learned from One Year on The Road

Digital Nomad Lessons: What I Learned from One Year on The Road

2015 was a very strange year for me. I began the year in great enthusiasm. Quit a superb job late in 2014 [Read: How I Quit My Job to Travel the World NOT!], to take up an assignment in a small heritage town in South India, and I thought things would just fly on from there. Only, as has often ... Read More »

The Best Backpacker Hostel in India — Madpacker’s, Delhi

The Best Backpacker Hostel in India — Madpacker’s, Delhi

If there’s one major hang-up I have about traveling in India, it is the lack of quality backpacker hostels that cater to solo travelers, but thankfully the hostel landscape is changing a wee-bit in recent years. Things are speeding up further with the arrival of hostel chain Zostel, looking to establish itself in some of the backpacker circuits. A lot of ... Read More »

Blogger of the Month — The Aussie Flashpacker

Blogger of the Month — The Aussie Flashpacker

I read a lot of stuff about the struggle of modern urban relationships with a nomadic lifestyle. In fact, I also get asked quite often how I manage my dating life if I’m on the road for long periods.

Travel Blogging: The Ugly Truth Social Media Doesn’t Show

I’ve started getting to that phase of my travel blogging journey, where I’m beginning to gain a little traction.

Blogger of the Month – Julie Berron

When I started off The Blogger of the Month series, my main objective was to bring to my readers the stories of other travel bloggers that have inspired my own journey; to be honest though, the true keyword in there is really just ‘inspire’. While it’s true that I didn’t imagine making an exception to the criteria as early on ... Read More »

Port Victoria – The Smallest Capital in Africa

Port Victoria – The Smallest Capital in Africa

When people talk about the most mesmerizing capital cities in the world, you’d expect to hear the usual rabble about Paris, London, Prague, Budapest, New York – the usual suspects. Personally, I think Edinburgh stole my heart a couple of years ago, and I think it’s going to keep it for some years to come – the spell it cast ... Read More »

The island state of Hawaii is a set of remote, cast-away islands in the North Pacific. Few places on earth come close to equaling the pristine, almost heavenly natural beauty of these islands. Their magnificent beaches and endless expanses of luxury resorts have appealed to travellers — particularly honeymooners –for decades. Amongst Hawaii’s well-documented coastline, the North Shore of Oahu ... Read More »
