Vietnam

Vietnam

Hanoi- Landed at the capital city of Vietnam and could not believe that this was even a city. Hitesh booked our accommodation and thought that it was around $25 per night. We only found out when we reached there that this was the cheapest accommodation we were ever going to stay in. It was actually 25 for 2 nights and was the worst place…

Laos

Luang Prabang- Such a chilled out town that sightseeing was not even on top of our list. Discovery of Joma bakery made our day and the next few days. Yummy food every single time day or night. Also found an Indian restaurant that did dhosas and thats all I had. Night market was the best…

Thailand

Thailand- From London to Bangkok- a busy city to a much busy and hectic city. Far too many people, far too many people that look alike, just far too many tourists. We spent a few days starting with all the temples. Our favourite was Wat Pho that was made using porcelain tiles that were left behind by the Chinese merchants. Wat Phra Kaew is the most…

Chile, Argentina & Brazil Final Part

From El Chalten- Argentina border crossed to Puerto Natales-Chile to see Torres Del Paine National park. We were running out of time therefore did not do the W trek which is quite famous. We did go to the national park on a one day tour to see the famous landmarks and the the pretty flowers that are called “princess…

Chile & Argentina Part 2

After Pucon yet another time we entered Argentina and this time to visit the Lakes district. Our first destination was  Bariloche. The bus drive as all of our other major bus drives was very scenic. The whole drive which was a day long, we saw pretty lakes all the way. Just on reaching Bariloche the sunset was…

Chile & Argentina Part 1

Crossing over to San Pedro De Atacama we had another disappointment with the star gazing- which is meant to be the best in the world and got cancelled as there were clouds on the way. We could not wait until the next day since, the full moon came around and we would have to wait for another week. Left San…

Peru to Bolivia

Lake Titicaca- so well known for being the highest altitude lake in the world! This is one place I thought would be tranquil and laid back but I was wrong. From Puno, Peru it is so commercialised that I almost forgot to absorb the whole scene on our way to the Uros islands. The floating…

Galapagos Islands

For all of you who are tired of reading long blogs…. Here’s a good nice and short one for you. Galapagos is one place that needs alot of words to describe every single detail, which I am not going to do, but recommend that one needs to be there to see and experience it. My favourite part, got to swim with sea…

Machu Picchu

Where do we start…. Had an early morning 3.ooam wake up call. By the time we got to Km 82- the spot where our trekking journey began, we were sleepy and the first 10 minutes hiking up definitely woke us up. After the first 15 minutes Hitesh  wanted to turn back….hehe. All he kept on saying was the same…

Arequipa

After another 10 hour bus ride from Nazca to Arequipa, Hitesh had a countdown going on from 11.30 onwards making sure he does not fall asleep and forget to wish me a “Happy Birthday”. On the dot at 12.00 I got a special birthday message which took me by surprise. As soon as the countdown was over, Hitesh…
