I was very skeptical about trying out the ‘Royal Ride to Taj Mahal’, however after overcoming the initial shyness, the experience proved to be really splendid. The intention is to make the rider feel like royalty and we felt just that! We also learned the story about how Taj Mahal was built and were taken to the food streets of Agra to taste some local delicacies in its most authentic form prepared by expert chefs!

The de facto leader and most well-known member of the Beat movement, Kerouac’s writings and thoughts have influenced many generations and people from all walks of life, and his poetry, novels, and letters continue to inspire me even today. Thanks to the visionary for enabling me to approach life in a completely different and positive way.

This 26th of January, watch the parade and celebrate the true feeling of patriotism.

Rishikesh is popular for a lot of adventurous activities, and I wish to experience each of them, particularly rafting in Rishikesh. It is necessary for one to come out of the tiring and monotonous life and have fun in the laps of nature. Rishikesh is also known as the land where yoga was born, the place is situated amidst mountains, besides rivers and surrounded by lush greenery and of course the pleasant climate always welcomes tourists.

No matter if the costs are high; do not compromise as the amount can be worth your safety. You need to be fit and in case you are suffering from any kind of sickness it is better to stay away. Check the gears and listen carefully to your instructors, this is another important tip that I am going to keep in mind.
Interesting rafting spots!

While I was doing some homework regarding rafting in Rishikesh in my smart phone, I came across some rafting places. Adventurous rafting at Tapovan is offered by Alpinestar Holidays. It charges 2200 INR and offers camping and other activities too with rafting. The second one is at Mahanda complex in Tapovan which offers rafting and other water activities at 800 INR.

Although the above quote is comical, it is true. One need not travel just for the sake of broadening one’s mind or thoughts or any significant changes in lifestyle, but also, travelling is often the bud, for a whole bunch of new topics to discuss and comment on. Also, it is an effective icebreaker, in case you’re an introvert.

My family vacation to Assam gave a unique opportunity to taste the Aloo Pitika from the region. It is a mashed potato dish with hints of shaved ginger, mustard oil and mustard paste. The dish also tasted a tad spicy because of the chili in it. It is known to be the soulful comfort food from the North East.
