Gujarat Heritage/Culture India Road trip Travelling

Memoir from the Shaken City of Gujarat: Bhuj

As soon as we left the Great White Desert (Rann of Kutch), we were coming back with the wonderful experience of our lives. The majestic super full moon night and spectacular sunrise at white desert made our trip to Kutch district of India a remarkable milestone of our travel memories. While coming back to Ahmedabad we need to cross Bhuj, yet another historic place of the Kutch district. More than a million buildings were destroyed and damaged, including many historic buildings and tourist attractions. We were keen to visit some historic places in Bhuj for a close insight of after more than 15 years of the quake.

Gujarat Road trip Travelling

Experience the Great Rann of Kutch, Gujarat

Last night sleep was spent restlessly as we were not totally satisfied with our visit to Great Rann in the night. We made up our mind to wake up early before sunrise and witness the great beauty of the Great Rann once more. With a firm decision, in the morning we reached there on time. Karen was sleeping. It was still dark and we were again in the White Rann. We waited for a few minutes and nature delivered us its best colors in the sky before sunrise. Here, Karen also accompanied us in the greatest show of nature. It felt like an astounding achievement for us. Then arrived the greatest show of nature, the stunning sunrise. We had never seen such a spectacular sunrise before. We were completely happy and filled with a sense of accomplishment for this trip.

International Kite Festival: Uttarayan 2019 Gujarat

Ever since our childhood days, we are big fans of kite flying on the auspicious day of Makar Sankranti or Uttarayan which usually celebrated every year on 13-14th of January. Yesterday we remembered the days of flying kites high up in the sky. This day is always celebrated with full swing. Kids like us in those days eagerly waited for the day and woke up early in the morning which they used to avoid in normal days.

Budget holidays beyond India

If you are a budget conscious traveler, there are few tried and tested ways to make sure you get worth of every penny you spend in a foreign land. In every destination, one of the ways to assure you experience a reasonably affordable holiday is by trying to stretch your money. Opting for homestays and vacation rentals are a great way to save your money. These would also give you the opportunity to mingle with local people and get an insight into their cultural aspect and lifestyle. Other two ways that help a lot in effective cost-cutting is traveling on public transport and eating as the locals do. A little bit of research on where to go and what to do for budget-conscious travelers in a particular destination is all you need to do to make your travel dreams into reality in a cost-effective way.
