A Trip To Vagamon, Kerala

The worst thing about corporate life is that you don't get holidays and by mistake if you get then those holidays are not sufficient to plan any trip. After a long wait, we planned this trip and successfully executed it. Although, it was a weekend trip but we enjoyed it and had a great experience. Also got a great motivation to travel, so that next time we would not be afraid of getting fired for travelling a lot. We went to Vagamon and did a 2-day-3-night trip.

Vagamon is a tiny hill station located on the western ghats in Idukki district of Kerala. The hill station is set on the valleys at an altitude of 1,100 meters above sea level. The place is prominent for its favorable and cool climate and beautiful green meadows and it also comes in the list of "50 most attractive places to visit in India" listed by National Geographic Traveler. The best thing about this place is that it remains isolated from the tourists. If one wants to spend a quality time on an attractive destination by getting a natures touch then Vagamon is a go for you. And what to say about its climate, according to my experience one can literally touch, stay, eat clouds meaning you will be in the clouds almost all the time. 

Itinerary:

Day 1

Our trip started from Chennai, all assembled and left from Karapakkam bus stop via fastrack booked cab at 8.00 pm and reached Perangluthur bus stand at around 9.30 pm. We had our dinner there at Aakash Hotel, then boarded the reserved sleeper bus from there itself and left for Theni at around 10.00 pm.

Day 2

We reached Theni at 6.30 am and arrived at hotel Shree Deiva. Our rooms were already booked there, so we quickly checked in, took some rest, bathed, and got ready by 10.30 am. After having breakfast, we departed for Vagamon by a hired mini bus at 12.00 pm. Reached Vagamon at 2.00 pm amidst doing some photography, sight seeing etc. Before reaching our farm house we got down to wander in some huge pine forest there. We played games and did a small trekking there followed by some photo shoots in the woods. Green Meadows, our booked farm house, in between the green valleys from where you could only see the lush green mountains and clouds and nothing else. We had our lunch made by the authentic Kerala chefs. After finishing our lunch we got ready for trekking at 3.30 pm.

During trekking, we targeted every hill we could see from our farm house and mounted it. We played a game called 'point & mount' in which we had to close our eyes and take rounds by pointing our finger and on which hill our finger stopped, we had to climb that hill. Apart from all this, we did various other activities, explored the tea gardens and royal tea estates, went to the wild grass despite of having risk of getting caught by leeches. Also tasted some wild guavas plunging on the trees.

After 2 hours of roaming on the hills everyone got tired, so we thought of getting back to our farm house. While we were coming back, we saw that there were clusters of clouds waiting for us to add real fun in our trip. We were on the top of a hill and we saw clouds approaching us and in few minutes the clouds entrapped us and we were all in the clouds with mist all around. The experience was just so mesmerizing that one cannot express in words. We had a lot of fun in the clouds, played there, did so many photo shoots, selfies in the mist and then got back to our farm house around 6.30 pm. After getting back, there were our evening snacks waiting for us. We were already famished till then. After having snacks, we got in to our rooms for some rest. It was so cold till then that there was no need to switch on the fans rather we were all enclosed in the cozy blankets kept there. At around 9.00 pm , the great Kerala chefs called us for dinner. Later we played sequence (a game of cards) in the balcony of our farm house. It was so fun to play in that drizzling atmosphere having goose bumps out of chilling temperature and surrounded by the beautiful green meadows. We played till 2 hrs and then got back to sleep.










Day 3

Woke up by the knock on the door, saying "wake up and get ready, we are going to thekkady". We got up somehow by 7:00 am and got ready in an hour. Had the breakfast there and got all set by 10.00 am as we had to check out before 10.00 from green meadows. We hired the same mini bus that we took from theni but the plan got changed in between as someone told that there is nothing to see in thekkady, so we stopped at some adventurous place where it was written that kayaking, paragliding and other adventure sports are done here. The adrenaline rushed through everyone's body and we got in there but alas, due to cloudy weather there they stopped those activities for that day. After hearing this, we got turned down but we did not leave because the view there was so captivating that no one can control himself to fall in love with it. So we decided to spend out time there.

After some time, it started raining, we got in to our bus, danced there in the middle of the road like crazy and departed for a waterfall to have bath in an adventurous way. We bathed there, got so many bruises, but in the end everyone got out of their water phobia. The water there was so chilled and deep that we were literally shivering and floating in the water holding the rocks as there was no base in beneath the water where we could placed our foot. We came back from there around 3.00 pm and decided to have lunch in a restaurant. After having lunch, did some shopping, bought some home made chocolates and reached back to theni around 7.00 pm at the same hotel. We boarded the bus from there for chennai at 8:30 pm after having dinner in the hotel.




Day 4

Reached Chennai at 5:00 am, boarded cabs there to reach our respective flats.

Rajasthani Heritage And Comfort In Jaipur Hotels In India

A trip is made by three things, i.e., travel, food & stay, in which travel demands taxi and other conveniences, food demands good restaurants and for stay, decent hotels are must. When we talk about decent hotel, it means the hotel should be of fine quality at a reasonable cost. India has one of the finest and longest chains of ultra-luxurious hotels. Some remarkable standards are Oberoi, ITC, and Taj - IHCL etc. and these are some of the best hotels in Jaipur. Luxury is defined inside the hotels having both heritage and comfort. Almost all standard hotels offer comfort, but only some are known for their heritage. Heritage in India comes with a name and that is "RAJASTHAN". Rajasthan has a lengthy list of hotels that are prominent for their heritage experience and superb comfort which are located in Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Ranthambore etc.

Talking about the Capital city of Rajasthan i.e., JAIPUR, The Pink City which epitomizes the hotels of high standards in Indian hospitality, which are rich in heritage and culture to reflect the Indian architecture and Interior designing. The beauty discovered by the visitors helps them to fulfill their desire to have an unforgettable experience with their loved ones. Check out 10 hotels in Jaipur that offer heritage, comfort and suitable budget hand in hand for some great options. We are here revealing some points that are most importantly considered while booking a hotel room in Jaipur.

Comfort:

Pic Source
Jaipur city defines the word comfort in a completely different manner. For them, the comfort is not just limited to your room comfort but they extend it to "the way you are being served and treated, i.e., Mehmaan-Nawaazi". The comfort includes your stay in the room, accessibility to nearby places, your travel convenience in the city and specially your food. Jaipur city hotels are the best in India to exemplify the comfort in food, i.e., the way you are served at the table. You are made to sit on a chowki and the food is served to you with blend of love, respect, kindness and happiness in a buffet and this is what we call "The Maharaja Treatment". The comfort in your room is not just about the bed or air-conditioning you get, but it is also about the view from your room window and the room service you avail. You get a feeling of respect when you stay in. The view from your room should be clear and breathe taking in case you just want to spend some good time calming your eyes through the window, this helps to revitalize your body and your mind.


Heritage:

Jaipur has been a city of Maharajas (Kings) and Qilas (Forts) that showcase the beauty of architecture of Indian History and also symbolize the rich culture which describes the ancient stories of Living and Wars of previous time. The responsible citizens of the city have kept this heritage alive in the rooms of most of the street sided and luxurious hotels in Jaipur by preserving and maintaining the art inside and outside the hotels in the city. Visiting any hotel in Jaipur is like entering a room which inculcates the Indian art and colors with the painting and designs of walls telling some untold stories that may strike your mind or heart in one or another way and motivate your soul to explore the city more and more. Here comes the part you extend your trip in this city and experience the heritage and rajasthani culture during your stay in Hotels in Jaipur. With addition to your comfort, the heritage of the city and places pings your soul to rediscover yourselves, live your passion, develop affinity, experience togetherness to celebrate life and re-discover the lust of getting lost in Raja-Maharaja time. This is all in an environment of grandeur and splendor in Jaipuri Hotels. From Jaipuri dance to the style with which people greet you by joining their both hands together and saying "Khammaa-Ghadi", each and everything attracts you to its charming heritage and the king style treatment that you get at places like chokhi dhaani with delectable cuisine and folk dance, which fills your mind with real excitement and happiness.

Price:

The city houses all types of hotels, from cheap to average and from standard to luxurious Hotels. That totally depends on your budget and the experience that you want to take back from here. You can find several hotel packages in Jaipur depending up on your budget and purpose of your tour. Mostly, tour are for a purpose, some with a purpose of relaxing vacation, some with a commercial purpose or some with a purpose of exploring the city and its robust culture. So choose accordingly, but one thing assured to you and that is: each and every hotel shall give you a delightful glimpse of Indian rajasthani culture.

Tips for Road Tripping In India

Pic Source
Very few things can compare with the excitement and glamour of a road trip in India. Road trip is the best thing which can be executed while travelling. And in India, it could be done in a quiet thrilling and adventurous way. Undoubtedly, successful road trips need advance and careful planning that includes proper research so that one can decide about what to carry on such a trip. There are certain things that could create a problem while heading on a road trip. Here are some important travel tips for a road trip by which one can execute the same without any difficulty and inconvenience. 

Check out these: 5 Essential Travel Tips For An Amazing Road Trip by Vir Sanghvi

Plan according to your mood

India is known for its natural beauty and this beauty is spread on places and scenic routes. Road tripping in India is totally unique and unforgettable. Choose your route according to your mood. Here are some stunning routes in India where you can hit the road.

  1. Mumbai to Goa
  2. Chennai to Mysore and Bengaluru via Bandipur Sanctuary.
  3. Delhi to Agra (via Yamuna Expressway) and then to Lucknow.
  4. Delhi to Mumbai
  5. Delhi to Ladakh via Khardung La Pass 

Clean, check and service the car before you leave

This is one of the most important thing and many people forget this while planning a road trip. You can take care of yourself easily, but taking care of car is sometimes difficult for many people. And people forget this because of their laziness. So, get your car serviced before you hit the road. After service, check all the components of the car whether it is working or not such as wiper blades, indicators, locks, head lights, horn, tire pressure, alignment, all fluid levels, batteries, etc. The most important thing is Tyre puncture, if you know how to fix it then it is good otherwise it would be better that you practice the fixing of Tyre puncture at your home.

Ensure about the car documents

Get all the documents ready and take at least 4 photocopies of every document. Documents such as Registration certificate, Insurance, Pollution certificate, License (make sure that the license is valid not expired).

Take breaks in the journey

Don't forget to take breaks in the journey. Driving continuously will make you stressful. It is recommended to take a break after every 200 km or 2 hours. It will keep you fresh and full of energy. Especially while night driving, it is important to keep your eyes calm. So take breaks whenever you feel your eyes are paining.


Have a loose plan

Pic Source
If you want to enjoy your road trip then plan flexible not rigid. Because you never know that what you meet after your next turn. Get off the highways, do off-roading, explore local places and meet their people. Explore the local restaurants and try local cuisines. If you reach at any scenic point then stop the car and spend some time there, take some photographs. It is advised not to drive the car at the time of sunset. Wherever you are(not on busy route), push the brakes, get off the car and enjoy the sunset. 


Make a checklist

This one is most important. Here is a complete checklist of some essentials that you should have in your car.


Cash: 

If you are off-roading or travelling in the countryside, there is a least probability that you would find an ATM. So it is advised to carry enough cash on the road trip. Make sure about some loose change, it will cut your time during payments especially at toll plaza, parking, etc.

Car Essentials:

Don’t forget to carry a spare battery and tyre, set of jumper cables, puncture repair kit, tool kit, radiator coolant, duplicate keys and engine oil, etc. Make sure about the fog lights in your car, if you are planning in winter.

Map of destination:

There are many places in India that your digital maps and GPS may not work or they may show you the wrong way because sometimes they got confused due to dense road network of India. So it would be better you carry a hard copy of a map of that particular place. Carrying a map will also make you feel adventurous like you are on any mission. 

Food and water:

Don't forget to bring sufficient food in case you won't find any restaurant. Carry packed food that gives you energy such as Dry fruits, chocolates, fruits, juices, snacks, etc. Water bottles are also must in case of dehydration. 

Miscellaneous:

First aid kit, blankets, flashlight, universal cell phone charger, power bank, pepper spray(for women), camera, collection of music(playlist), camping equipment, GPS, tissue paper, toiletries, etc.

And last but not the least


Take the best company

Pic Source
Solo road trip can be tiring and not advisable. Take your best mates on the road trip. A good company is must to maximize the fun. And make sure that at least one of your friends know driving perfectly because on the road trip you never know when you will need a break.

Catch Up On Growth Indiblogger Meet Experience


On May 15, 2016, I went to The Lalit Hotel at Connaught Place in New Delhi to attend the Indiblogger meet. Although it was my second indimeet, but still I was too excited for this meet. The first one that I attended was also fantastic, but I couldn't interact with the bloggers because that one was the biggest indimeet. As we know, more people result less interaction and vice versa, that's why I was more excited for this meet. The meet was all about interaction between bloggers and the product launching of Horlicks. The theme of this meet was #CatchUpOnGrowth. I attended this meet with my friend who is a tech blogger, Arvind Kumar.

I reached The Lalit at around 12:30 PM and yes, this time I wasn't late. As already mentioned in the schedule, the meeting started with the lunch. After the lunch, we joined the session. The meeting started with the introduction and interaction of newbie bloggers. After all this, a talk on growth of kids started and there were some prestigious doctors and physicians who joined this healthy talk. The discussion panel included Natasha Badhwar, Dr. Rajiv Chhabra, Ms. Satinder Kaur Walia and Dr. Jyoti Batra. They discussed about various problems like Malnutrition and issues which some kids have in their growing age.




Some key points that I learnt from the discussion

  • Milk contains 97% water in it. It means depending on only milk would not enhance your health.
  • We should take 40 minutes sunlight in the early morning to get vitamin D. 
  • Start your day with health food and then have junk. (very useful for me).


Later, Amaan Khan, the Marketing Lead for Horlicks for the Indian Sub-Continent at GSK Consumer Healthcare talked about the new Horlicks product. He launched the product named Horlicks Growth +. The product is a verified solution for the kids of age between 3 to 9 years who lag behind in height and weight. It is clinically proven and one can see the visible growth in 6 months if taken in a right amount. Horlicks Growth + is available in two flavours, i.e., Chocolate and Vanila.




After the launching of the product, Dr. Aditya Kaushik, head of Medical Affairs for Indian Subcontinent at GSK Consumer Healthcare handled the mic and talked about the technical specifications of the product.

After having a coffee break, we played a game in which 8 teams were formed, each of 10 bloggers. Every team had to make a 30 seconds ad video for the product by using some objects. Our team name was Growth Hackers. The video making activity was fun. And in the end, we had a group photo.






And here is our video:
