One of the highlights of my solo bike ride to Kutch region of Gujarat was the lovely time I spent relaxing at Hodko Zeel homestay at White Rann in Kutch region of Gujarat(India). It was 100% authentic experience of rural tourism in Gujarat and I had a wonderful time in the mud huts, called Bhungas locally.

The newest entrant in Sbarro, a New York style Italian restaurant, which opened its doors in N block of Connaught Place, New Delhi. I attended the preview lunch a week back and came away impressed.

My job involves extensive travel (yes, apart from being a blogger, I have a day job too!!!) and that entails staying in hotels for long periods. During my most recent business trip to Chandigarh, I stayed at the JW Marriott and it has been one of the best experiences as a business traveler. So I am sharing with you my review of JW Marriott Chandigarh Hotel.

I have always been fascinated by portrayal of rustic Punjab in our Hindi Movies and wanted to experience the whole gamut of seemingly fascinating depictions of farmers happily working in the fields, driving tractors, golden fields, rich food and the Punjab ’pind’ (loosely translated village community) thing. And though I have travelled extensively through North India (both on work and leisure), my travels to Punjab has been limited to Chandigarh (which is only technically part of Punjab) and Amritsar. So it was a lovely opportunity for me to travel to the Sangrur & Mansa regions of Punjab on a work trip. The previous week, I travelled back & forth through the heart of rural Punjab and experienced to the fullest, the ‘rustic’ Punjab. The experience has authenticated every portrayal of rustic Punjab for me as a traveler.
