My love for travel runs in the family and my brother is one person who travels as much (sometimes more) as I do, both personally & professionally. He is a bike lover and done many trips on his trusted & loved Enfield. This summer, he did his first solo bike road trip and loved it so much that decided that from hece forth he will only do solo bike trips. We were discussing about our travels one evening when the idea came up to chronicle his travels and I promptly offered him to be a guest author on my blog. He agreed and so here I am proudly announcing my brother (S.Sarkar) as the guest author chronicling his solo rides here, this first post is - A Road Trip from Delhi to Kinnaur, Sangla and Kasauli

Road trip from Delhi to Kinnaur, Sangla, Chitkul, Kalpa and Kasauli in Himachal Pradesh (India) ~ A solo rider's chronicles
Wednesday, July 16, 2014
It had been a long time since we traveled anywhere out of Delhi because of my pregnancy. Though the idea of baby-moon was very much discussed and locations searched for, in the end, we decided against it for medical reasons (as I was on heavy medication for the most part of my pregnancy). So, with the unforgiving summers upon us and an infant, we thought it would be best to take a trip out of the city & to the hills for a week. We picked Kasauli as it was perfect destination for a road trip from Delhi, with an infant and also off the usual list of hill stations. We spent a relaxing, soothing, rainy, foggy & windy 4 days in Kasauli (and 2 days in Chandigarh as pit stop) and came back refreshed!

Thanks to the EL Nino effect, this summer in North India has been exceptionally hot, humid & lasting longer than usual. As a new mommy, it has hit me harder and I find it especially irritating to dress up & go out even for essential work. The cool cotton wear has been a boon in such weather. I got this beautiful Ikat Maxi Dress in Long Shirt style custom made from Howrah Bridge. It has been one of my most frequently worn outfits this summer. I wore it recently on a lunch out with the husband.

Soft winds caressing my skin as I stand on the edge of a mountain road, watching the clouds gather on the mountains, rising up, flowing along the winds and vanishing into nowhere. It seemed to me a piece of heaven.
I took off to Kasauli in Himachal Pradesh (India) with my family last week and we had a relaxing, rejuvenating week. Our days & evenings were filled with lovely nature walks, greenery,quaint heritage buildings, mountain roads which were meant to walk on endlessly (and walk we did!!) clouds, fogs and rains....but the best times were spent watching the cloud play in the Himalayan mountains.

As you all know by know, I am a new mommy :) And it's not easy being one in the hot summers of Delhi (India). Dressing up is a big hassle when one has to go out. So I am doing the next best thing, that is, dressing down!! As part of my dressing down campaign, I have embraced maxi dresses like a duck to water!! I wore this summery print cotton maxi dress by Soma for a day out with one of my best friends (& fellow foodie) Payal Biswas.
