Travel | Dreaming of Bengaluru


Bengaluru is the only major city in India that I have yet to visit and I intend to cross it off my travel bucket list soon. It's come to be known as the 'Silicon Valley of India' there is so much to the city beyond tech. It's known for it's parks, museums, places of worship and wildlife sanctuaries, not to mention shopping! I found the above infographic on the Fortune Hotels Bengaluru website & it has made planning the potential trip much easier now that I know where I'm going to stay!
I haven't figured out dates yet, but Bengaluru folks, I'd love your recommendations. :)

Travel | Munnar pt.1 - Terrace Greens Resorts, Mattupetty Dam



I teased you all with some phone photos from my Munnar trip earlier, & now it's time to write a little more about my experience. I took a trip there for three days in the end of May. I'll be the first to admit that other than the fact that it was in Kerala I knew very little else about the place. I soon found that it was a hill station known for sprawling tea plantations & as my trip grew nearer, the excitement kept building up. It was the first trip I was going on solo, but as all of my reservations & bookings were taken care of my Thomas Cook & Sterling Holidays I wasn't nervous in the least bit.
Munnar isn't the most easily accessibly destination (all of the best places aren't) & there are a few different ways to get there. As I was travelling by flight, I had to go to Kochi & then take a car from there. Kochi was unbearably hot & muggy, much like Mumbai at the end of May but as we drove higher & deeper into the hills it got so much cooler. The driver kindly stopped at a waterfall along the way & I got to snack on some raw mango, a yummy snack that is sold at a lot of the tourist spots in Kerala. I napped for the later part of the drive & when I awoke I was greeted by the sight of hills covered in tea plantations as covered in a very dense fog. It was by far one of the most beautiful sights I had ever seen in my life. The weather too was so cool, pleasant & clean that I couldn't believe it was May. Getting back to Mumbai after the trip was such a disappointment.
I stayed at the Munnar Terrace Greens resort which was at the top of the hill. It's a beautiful, minimal property. They don't have hundreds of different activities to keep you occupied, the property is all about sitting back, unwinding & taking in the surroundings. My room had a wonderful view of the hills too. I made a few short videos with some of the highlights of my trip - the first one is above, do watch it & let me know what you think!


Look out for the next post where I will tell you more about my trip & how I planned what I wanted to see. And do subscribe to my YouTube channel (click the red button just below the video! :)) because I post videos on my channel before they're on the blog.
