About Vaisakhi

Mumbai

I am an engineer by profession and a traveller and poet/writer by passion. I started out by writing for my school college magazines but soon it became a passion. Being a voracious reader, I love reading and reviewing books. But what I love the most is Travelling - visiting offbeat locations or offbeat corners of touristy locations and capturing its essence behind my camera lenses is something I wish I could do any-time and every-time.

Vaisakhi scratched 'Go on a road trip with friends'

Scratched on 30 Mar 2013 at Mumbai to Goa

Road trip to Goa - Guess everyone near Mumbai wants to do that, but I was itching to do this in an offbeat manner, i.e. by taking the old Mumbai-Goa way and crossing out places in coastal Maharashtra. So our actual road trip was somewhat like this: Mumbai-Alibaug-Nagaon-Janjira-Ganpatiphule-Ratnagiri-Goa (North south old and new). One week on the road, spending just nights at hotels or small inns. It was a trip to remember. I have travelled to Goa numerous times and via almost almost all modes of travel (cruise remains) but this road trip had to be the ultimate one!

Vaisakhi scratched 'Travel alone'

Scratched on 29 Aug 2014 at Mumbai to Kuala Lumpur

Technically my first solo trip was from Ajmer to Pushkar, then Pune to Mumbai. But those were the ones that made me scratch this itch off my list. My first ever trip to Malaysia was the one. Self earned, completely sponsored and flying solo to a foreign land! Never going to forget that trip. Read more about it at http://thewordpool.blogspot.in/

Vaisakhi scratched 'Visit a tea garden'

Scratched on 03 Nov 2014 at Assam/Darjeeling/Sikkim

Whiff of tea trees, symmetry of the hillocks, murmur of the winds through the trees and whispering flow of an unseen spring! It was beautiful everywhwhere- be is Darjeeling or Sikkim or Assam.

Vaisakhi scratched 'Travel without bookings'

Scratched on 03 Jan 2014 at Mount Abu

Was on a vacation with my parents in Ahmedabad for 4 days and suddenly on Thursday we decided to go to Mount Abu Udaipur and Nathadwaar on a road trip starting the following day. With no prior bookings we started off for the journey and were kind of stranded in Abu with no accommodation so we decided to drive to the base of Abu and guess what, we found a really cool not very luxurious but awesome enough for a night home stay! Getting accommodation in Udaipur was easier so we made it our base point and travelled to Nathdwar and Chittor and came back to Udaipur for the night stay. Not hassle free, but the trip, the experience was so much fun!
