A camel affair: JAISALMER

A popular adage among the Rajasthani locals is – Registaan nahi dekha toh kuch nahi dekha (If you haven’t seen the desert, you haven’t seen anything). Just kidding! A must to do on my Rajasthan tour was to visit the desert.

Weekend at Malenadu: Kodachadri Trek

My penchant for mountains have continued for quite a while now and it’s amusing that I have not explored much around Karnataka which hosts some of the beautiful views.
