24 hours a day…

My feet were getting number by the minute and the water didn't seem to get any warmer even though the sun was shining with over 28 degrees. I continued to stand on a rock in midst of a little stream, in a little town which I've never heard of, with a friend. These 45 minutes … Continue reading 24 hours a day…

Hamburg in 4 days and why it’s amazing…

It was past 11 in the evening and we were on our way back to the hotel when we stopped to hear some music playing a little away from us. We had just got off a ferry and noticed people walking towards the music source. We followed the suite. As we reached the band that … Continue reading Hamburg in 4 days and why it’s amazing…

Road Trip to Norway – Preikestolen, Kjerag Bolt and the journey back home…

I wasn't aware that the Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) is 604m above the Lysefjord and is one of the most famous hikes in Norway. But I sure had seen this classic photo each time Norway came up somewhere. In fact, a nail biting scene in Mission Impossible with Tom Cruise was shot here. And I discovered … Continue reading Road Trip to Norway – Preikestolen, Kjerag Bolt and the journey back home…

ROAD TRIP TO NORWAY – All you need to know about hike to Trolltunga

A fortnight has passed since we'd left home. And the exact same things that fascinated us in the first few days, were like 'alright' now. M no longer heard me whining about phone storage filling me drastically day by day. I only took out my phone when it was absolutely surreal or when I wanted … Continue reading ROAD TRIP TO NORWAY – All you need to know about hike to Trolltunga

Road Trip to Norway – Blue water, Bergen & Drives…

Leaving a comfortable, beautiful and cozy camping place is never easy. Especially when the weather is under and all you want to do it adore the pure nature all around you. But we had to take a look at what is known to be the arm of Jostedalsbreen Glacier, Briksdalsbreen. We were still very much … Continue reading Road Trip to Norway – Blue water, Bergen & Drives…

Road Trip To Norway – Glaciers & Fjords…

There was a time when driving from Ooty to Bangalore was the biggest and scariest thing I'd done right after getting my driving license. The mountain roads with hairpin bends was always a little scary for me. Especially because I thought I'm gonna make the car fall off. But just like that time, papa sat … Continue reading Road Trip To Norway – Glaciers & Fjords…

Road trip to Norway – Road over the Atlantic Ocean…

Our apple watch tends to keep coming up with challenges and 28th August '21 was the National Parks Day Challenge. We needed to hike or walk for at least 1.6 km that day. Although the plan was to just drive towards as south as possible, we had to see what was Stetind all about. Making … Continue reading Road trip to Norway – Road over the Atlantic Ocean…

Road Trip To Norway – Views from above…

I'm not sure if it was the winds on Lofoten, or the blue sky with sun shining or simply the fact that we felt that vacation had finally begun - but we had found our energy again. The kind of motivation that we seemed to have hidden under the seats all this time while driving … Continue reading Road Trip To Norway – Views from above…

Road Trip to Norway – The Lofoten Islands!

"What is swinging?". I thought to myself. I opened my eyes slightly and realised the waves splashing on the glass next to me. The little ferry swinging in middle of the night in the open sea. I'd never experienced the sea like this so far. And neither I knew if I was sea sick or … Continue reading Road Trip to Norway – The Lofoten Islands!

Road Trip To Norway – Reaching the Arctic Circle…

Day 2 and couple of days following were all about driving, driving and driving. Next morning, we reached Hirtshals Harbour, boarded this huge ferry and off we went. We took the Colorline Ferry. That takes about 3.5 hours to Kristiansand. You can also take a faster one with another company called Fjordline. The blue sky, … Continue reading Road Trip To Norway – Reaching the Arctic Circle…

Road trip to Norway – The journey begins…

This trip was in planning for months. And actually, a lot longer because M wanted to do this road trip forever! And finally, the day was here! With boxes and baskets, and multiple games of finding the perfect fit, we were finally ready to leave! This was repacked and changed completely by the time it … Continue reading Road trip to Norway – The journey begins…

The Drill…

This Saturday morning was no different than any other. I woke up pretty late. Had a lazy breakfast, scrolling through some news followed by social media. But while sipping on my coffee, I came across something that made me stop and think. A post from an old friend. She's been part of this initiative to … Continue reading The Drill…

We are coming to the end of the year... And it's time when we all sit back and reflect, recall and rediscover.. the moments that have passed... This post is inspired by this beautiful poem that I came across. After rain after many days without rain,it stays cool, private and cleansed, under the trees,and the … Continue reading Drop…
