Kutch Experience

Kutch is a barren land in the western corner of India. But, there is something special in this barren land. The specialty is White desert & this is the reason why people visit this barren land. The place only opens for a few months in a year i.e from Oct to March; which are best months to visit. We traveled to this place during our holiday in Jan. A long weekend in Jan was a perfect time to explore.

The Journey:

We total of 5 people started from Mumbai in an XUV of a friend. The time shown on google map was close to around 17 hours. The journey started smoothly but our smooth ride soon took a beating due to an accident near Mumbai. The whole road got blocked  & we had to stay put for 3 long hours already adding time to our long journey. Finally, we were able to move & soon gained our speed.


The time we entered Gujrat, we witnessed some of the best roads to drive on. There were hardly any potholes or irregularities on the road. The smooth ride was blessing for such a long journey. We followed the map & crossed Surat, Ahmedabad & reached Bhuj next morning.  Before we reached Bhuj we crossed barren landscapes, some windmills regions & few villages.

Bhuj Experience:

Bhuj is a small city & is not very touristic. Bhuj is famous because it is the major city near Kutch. The place has few attractions but we avoided those due to a shortage of time. If one is having difficulty in finding accommodation in Kutch then Bhuj can be the best alternative. There are many properties which provide world-class amenities. You can check out the list of hotels by clicking on the following link.

Accommodation in Bhuj.

After resting for some time at our hotel which was a decent one. We left for our ultimate destination the GREAT RANN.

Rann of Kutch

Rann of Kutch is some 2 hours drive from Bhuj. We started our journey crossing barren lands. But, one such land pulled our attraction & we were too eager to miss this opportunity. We drove off road & after covering some 2 Km in a barren land, we reached in the midst of nowhere. There was a pin-drop silence, one can see miles without human intervention. The thrill of silence was an experience to have considering today’s world; where one can never shut down from the world for a microsecond. 

After spending few precious minutes & clicking some selfies :D. We restarted our journey to Rann of Kutch. After offroading, the drive was pretty straight. Soon, we entered the region, there were many camps near the roads & we knew we are in the vicinity of our destination. Rann Utsav has an option to stay in camps but if one wants to experience this luxurious stay, one needs to shed extra money. The entrance has many shops & outlets which are maintained by local people. I personally felt the collection was decent.

Barren Land Mark My Adventure

There is a checkpoint to enter the Rann. At the checkpoint, one needs to buy a permit for vehicle & also entry charges. The entry charge of person is Rs 100 while for Vehicle it is Rs 50.

We were excited to see the place. Once we enter the region there was white salt spreading miles. We walked on the surface it was soft at some places & hard at some. So, walk cautiously. There were few points were my leg just sunk. We reached in the evening which I believe is the perfect time to enjoy the place. As the temp cools down & the sun starts to show its color.

Sunset is one natural phenomenon that is special to all. I truly believe that sunset of different places has its charm & Rann of Kutch sunset’s surely has its. The vibrant colors were one of the best sunsets I have ever witnessed. The hot bulb & clear sky is the perfect combo. Also, here I was actually able to see the sun crossing the horizon & getting vanished. So, if one is looking to enjoy sunsets this is the place to be in. The image of sun setting will forever grave on my mind.

Della & Pavana Lake: A weekend Well Spent

There are lots of places near Mumbai where one can spend a quality time. Mumbai has a space constraints so finding an open space is a tough thing to do.Della adventure is answer for such constraints, Della has established a park in Lonavala (some 2.5 or 3 hours drive from Mumbai & 1.5 hours drive from Pune). An adventure park which offers variety of outdoor activities & surely is good place to visit.

Della Adventures:

Della Adventures is located in Lonavala. The place has many activities like paintball, wall climbing, zip line,  archery, shooting, swings, obstacle, dirt bike racing etc. The prices of the activities vary. However, there is a basic plan which allows one to play games like snooker, table tennis, chess, carrom, net practice (cricket), archery. But, to play games like paintball, dirtbike racing one need to shed extra rupees. Other than this they also provide staying option if one is willing to spend another day. Click here to book a room in Della.

Della Mark My Adventure

The basic package starts from approx 2000 excluding taxes.  However, there are many offers available on online booking which can be cheaper than this price. The same can be looked by clicking here.

Dirt biking Della Adventure

I went to this park with my friends, I felt the basic package was overpriced. However, it is a good place for kids, as they can ride cycles, pet a dog & enjoy some time away from honking of vehicles. But, for adults, it might be disappointing because of the rush & the price.

Carrying out all the activities in a single day is difficult. The best would be to shortlist the activities one wants to do & only perform those. Although, it is possible to cover all the activities in 2 day.

A food court is available in the park. So, there is no need to worry about the food. The cost of food in restaurant is on a higher side, but that is expected if traveling to some adventure club.

We spent one afternoon there & for us it was a decent one time visit. We enjoyed our time over there. But, will think to visit the place again. After spending an afternoon, we moved to Pavana Lake for the evening. Lake is some 1.5 to 2 hours journey from Della Adventures.

Pavana Lake:

Pavana lake is a wonderful site for camping. Located at some distance from the city. The sites near a lake are owned by local villagers. Hence, it is logical to take a camping package from them. The charges are not high, so one can afford it easily. The package includes a tent, a camp fire, bonfire (if lucky enough to get one), food & morning snacks & the cost of the package was approx 1000 per head.

Pavana Lake Mark My Adventure

The best part of camping is its view, so choose the view accordingly. Luckily, we got good location. You can search camping site by clicking on this link.

The night here was more about sitting near the campfire & chit chatting about different phases of the life or different experiences.

Morning View Pavana Lake

The morning views were mesmerizing, the never-ending landscapes & peace all around the camp is the experience which one can only dream of. I particularly enjoyed the morning scene because of the freshness in the air & nature.

Bhandardara Camping

How often one spends weekends just procrastinating about activities he or she wants to do. But, we hardly take any steps towards it. This point is valid for me as well. I have spent many weekends trying to imagine things I want to do during my void time. However, I did nothing to change it. But, one weekend I tried to change this habit & left home for a camping trip. Camping is becoming a new fad among the city people & why not. A place where one can sit calmly & unclutter daily life stress is a need of this hour. People are running behind fame & money & because of which finding a time for self is getting obsolete. Not going into the details of stresses & all. This post is my experience of camping near Bhandardara Dam.

Bhandardara is approx 4 Hrs drive from Mumbai & approx 2.5 to 3 Hrs from Pune. The gigantic lake has many beautiful points to explore. Most of the sites near lakes have already been taken by local villagers. Thus, one needs to contact villagers to get the best deal. Camping usually a one day, in fact, one evening thing to do & is cheap in pockets as well.

The best way to find deals near Bhandardara click on this link Camps Near Bhandardara. Usually, in a campsite, a tent is provided along with bonfire, music system (which varies with the service providers). The only drawback of these sorts of arrangement is the crowd. For-profit margins, villagers are allowing more camp than the required ones which steals the calmness of the place.

If one is looking for more of a luxurious trip then it can be disappointing as there are no proper washrooms & not so comfortable sleeping arrangements. But, some things have to be sacrificed to gain other things & this is one such part of the trip.


The Journey

We traveled to the lake by car. It took us roughly 4 hours to reach the lake. We did our booking while traveling. Luckily we got one in time. The location of the camp was superb, the water was hardly 10 to 15 Mts away from the camps. We reached around 8:30 or 9 pm in the night & it was pitch dark. The time we reached, dinner has already begun; we told him that we will be having it late in the night. So, we sat there near the bonfire & chatted.  The temperature dropped drastically & after having sat there for few hours we slept in the tent.

The next morning, we woke up to the pleasant lake the temperature, the tea & the view made it a perfect morning. It was a refreshing feeling to see the water & greenery than concrete jungles & some fresh air (which is getting rare these days). The lake is beautiful & very calm. There is an island which can be reached by boat. However, due to some issues, we couldn’t able to reach the island.

Bhandardara Mark My Adventure

People earn to enjoy a view like these. The moment you open your eyes, there is a lake surrounded by the hills. Every place has its own high & this place certainly has its. The best way to spend some quality time is by having some quality conversation.

Lake View Mark My Adventure

This place is good for a day’s visit. Enjoy camping here & unclutter from the stress.




Ajanta & Ellora Caves

A visit to the world heritage site “Ajanta & Ellora caves” at Aurangabad, Maharashtra was truly a beginning for me. A beginning to a search that led to a lot of other interesting findings/thought processes, leaving me more inquisitive than ever.


Consisting of 30 rock cut caves, Ajanta was built over a period of 900 years (2 B.C to 6 A.D). Mammoth excavations were turned to fine carvings of exceptional Buddhist sculptures and what the Archaeological Survey of India states “the finest surviving examples of Indian art, particularly painting”. It is believed that Buddhism flourished at the time Ajanta caves were built and hence the caves built during the reign of different Buddhist rulers showcase various stories of the ‘enlightened one’ and selected portions of Jataka tales. The unique paintings on the cave walls, some of which has the modern day “3D” effect, makes one ponder in utter amazement at the vast knowledge of craftsmanship and artistry that their creators possessed thousands of years ago.


Dazzling in its glory on having depicted marvelous sculptures from three different religions viz. the Buddhism, the Hinduism and the Jainism, the Ellora caves too is a spectacular piece of art.

Ajant & Ellora Caves Mark My Adventure

These sculptures also bring forth a lot of facets from the bygone era which are a real treasure and evoke lot of quest around them. For instance, the sculpture that shows Ravana, the king of Srilanka whisking away Sita in the so called “Puskpak Vimana”. Now this ‘pushpak vimana’ looks exactly like the present day ‘jetpack‘ in its features, size, etc. Did Ravana have a jet pack in those times and did he use the same which people back then knew about and we don’t? Well, I was so intrigued by this that I thoroughly searched the net and here’s what I found:

All the dexterously sculpted pieces of art had story in them. Did the artists of these caves know the real stories behind several myths, worn out versions of which are left for us today?

With so many small little pathways within the caves having dead ends and spots of ventilation (big holes on the ground) all across, could there have been an underground habitation also?

This was also something that caught my deep attention.

It’s said that many Muslim rulers including Aurangzeb had sent huge number of soldiers to destroy the sculptures of Ellora caves, trying as hard as they could, they could do little harm to certain structures, unable to make a dent on the rest.

If humans couldn’t destroy even half of what was built, were these structures created by humans at all? If yes, one can only imagine what would have been their built and stamina.

For so many years, Indians as well as foreigners have been exploring the caves in search of answers. Many of them keep coming to these caves repeatedly, each time discovering something new.

For me, I had sneaked out of the ‘maximum city’ with the desire to visit these exceptional creations, to bask in the glory of the past and unravel some historical stories. I did that and much more.

As one stands in awe at one of the ancient hallmarks of artistic excellence, under the clear blue sky of Aurangabad, few questions remain unanswered. Now I know why so many travellers visit this National heritage site multiple times. I wish to go back again soon to find out more.

Following is the line which is perfect for this situation.

Ruins for me are the beginning. With the debris, you can construct new ideas. They are symbols of a beginning.”

Europe Budget Trip

Europe is a dream destination for many people but it also among the most costliest ones. But there are ways through which one can optimize the cost & still able to enjoy most of the things. I traveled as a backpacker & thus I believe in spending less & enjoying more. I managed to complete my trip around Rs 1.2 Lacs which includes everything from Visa, accommodation & site seeing.


Accommodation is a prime most important factor to keep the price low. I prefer staying in hostels because of various reasons. These hostels are fun places to stay; as people from different places come & stay here. So,the crowded the place is the more than chances of getting insight about different countries. There is enormous opportunities to meet new people while staying at hostels. I booked hostels from Booking.com. Lately, I have found one more website named Jetradar. The concept of the site is to compare hotels from different websites. I found it very cool. I would surely try this next time.

On average keep a budget of 20-25 Euros per day for staying at hostels. This budget may vary with the cities, places & seasons. However, broadly one should be able to stay in or around this budget only.


After traveling to many countries & places. I realized the best way to keep the price towards food on a lower side is by eating on streets or cooking by oneself. Hostels or home accommodation allows a person to cook. I had bought groceries from the supermarkets & cooked my own food. It was easy to find supermarkets in all the cities I traveled. The rates are also reasonable, so it won’t bite your pocket. It is difficult to put a limit on food items as the appetite of the person varies.

Site Seeings:

There are numerous sites in Europe which are worth visiting. The best way to keep the price on the check is by buying city cards. These city cards offer a great solution for a traveler. It includes commutation in public transports & also allows free entry to some of the attractions. I benefited a lot with these cards. It saves fortunes if one takes public transport. I bought cards from Iamsterdam & Barcelona.de. Usually, city cards price varies with duration & things involved in it.

There is always some cost attached to traveling. But, there are few ways through which one can reduce the expenses & still able to benefit the most of it. I traveled on a shoe string budget & was able to cover most of the things which are expected. I won’t say I covered everything & experienced everything. But, I enjoyed whatever I was able to.

Traveling solo can be a dangerous affair. However, in my experience, I felt European city were safe. I traveled in the night & walked on empty streets but never felt unsafe except for few minor instances. Overall it was a safe affair. I enjoyed my time over there & hope to keep visiting in the years to come.

I hope this will help you to plan better & in a more efficient way.

Paris Solo Travel: Is It Safe To Travel Solo?

Paris is the by far one of the most popular cities to visit in the whole world. The place attracts thousands of tourists each year. But, is it safe to travel solo to this wonderful place?

Usually traveling solo is not an issue for the tourists. However, there are few points that one should always keep in the mind while traveling. No place is incident proof & precautions are always advisable. Thus, below are the few points which should be kept in the mind while visiting this place.


The most tourist place in the Paris is Eiffel Tower & it is crowded by pick pocketer. There are many such incidents of pickpocketing. Thus, it is advisable to keep valuables in check & check for your surrounding. To be on a safer side carry as fewer documents as required.

Remote Location:

Robbery is on the rise here. The best way to avoid this, is by limiting excess to a remote location. Avoid roaming in the less crowded places during night time. Always stay near the people. Traveling in the night is safe. However, there are some places which are not safe to travel during late hours. Also, use public transport while commuting. Paris transport system is perfect & it has great connectivity.

Touristic Scams:

There are many games happening near Eiffel Tower & street game like “find the ball” is very famous. At first, the host will project as if he is taking advice from you. However, if you answer they will ask for your participation & you will have to participate even if you are not willing to do the same. This is a most common scene near Eiffel Tower. Avoid these types of games.

These are the only things I can think of. Other than this Paris is the completely safe

Amsterdam For Solo Travelers: Is It Safe For Solo Travel

The question of being safe always come into the mind while traveling solo. As there is no one to support in your expedition. New places have there own challenges & challenges broadens while traveling solo. This post will cover things to be kept in mind while traveling solo to Amsterdam or Is Amsterdam Safe for solo travelers.

Amsterdam is the capital of The Netherlands & it is one of the most visited cities in the world. The place is known for young crowd & expat culture. City’s party culture is unmatched if compared to its counterparts. Because of the nightlife, the city is operational 24 * 7. It is hard to find a silent patch while in the city.

The city favorite mode of transport is the cycles. Theft of the cycles is the most common all over the city. It is advisable to lock your cycle wherever you go. As in minutes, someone can rob you of your valuable cycle. So, take care of the same while on the streets.



Pickpocketing is not common in Amsterdam. However, there have been few incidents of the same. It is better to keep your belongings near. While boarding a bus or a tram aware of your surroundings & keep belongings at the reachable distance.

An overdose of cannabis & truffles is not advisable. As both these affect the mind directly. Losing senses are the common affairs after having these. So, the best would be to take these under some supervision. Doing it alone could create a problem.

Other than these there is hardly any problem for solo travelers. The place is super fun & mostly trouble free. If young & free visit this place. It will blow your mind with its culture.

Europe Travel

Europe is on the list of every traveler. Reason for such vast popularity is the landscapes, culture & beauty in the place. The beauty of Europe is unmatched. Traveling to Europe for the first time is always exciting. because of unknown adventure & some lifetime of memories. This is enough reason for a person to make a travel plan to Europe. I was no different I wanted to travel to Europe while I am young. Most of the people wait until mid-age to visit because of the costly nature of the place. Accumulating funds takes time. But, for me, it was a different case I travel mostly on budget & avoiding luxury to travel freely was never a hindrance for me.

Europe is a nice blend of everything from artistic touch to modern outlook; from villages to modern cities. It has a flavor of everything. One requires at least 6 months to explore the place fully due to its vastness. While traveling, the most basic question arises is; which all cities to cover. There are many cities & choosing few of them is always tough, as no one wants to miss an opportunity to visit best cities. But, I will suggest to jot down few & travel only those.

I brainstormed few weeks before deciding on the cities I wanted to cover. It was always a tough choice to decide on few cities. As basic human psychology is to cover maximum possible places at one time only. This not only robs us of the feel of the city but also wastes quality time. It is always better to stay in a place for few days & explore the city like a locale. This not only helps us to enjoy the place but also help us to know about the place in a more better way.

Amsterdam Experience:

Europe is a bit different from South East Asia. It is hard to find warmness like South East Asia, the smile on people face. The greeting is there but that warmness is missing. People are to themselves only. During my stay in Amsterdam, I hardly saw a person who smiled at fellow traveler. People are helpful for sure but they won’t go an extra mile to help you out. It was very cold feeling out there.  Amsterdam nightlife is awesome the place gets started by 11 pm or after that. Music can be turn off feature over there. Along with the fact that one needs to pay to use the washroom in pub or bar. Insane practice. This was pretty new to me that they charge you for using it.  Cities cycling culture is tremendous nearly everyone uses a cycle to commute. This not only helps to keep you fit but also promotes pollution free environment, which has become essential in age like this. So, Amsterdam was a lovely affair for me. This was my first ever city in Europe & I have a fond memory of it.


Paris has a different vibe compared to Amsterdam. Romance is in the air of Paris. Every place one visit; there are few love stories to be spoken. Paris has rich culture behind it; the history has many stories to share. The architect is fantastic & the main attraction Eiffel Tower is surely the best part of the city. I feel Paris can be experienced best with the soul mate. It has that kind of aura to deliver. Of all the attraction I went, I felt the view of Eiffel tower during the evening time is the best view available. The clear blue sky in the background & dim light of Eiffel taking full effect is amazing to see. When I went to Eiffel tower there were few guys playing theme music of Titanic. No matter how efficiently I will try to explain the scene. It is just impossible to describe those moments. I stayed in Paris for a day only. Still, I was able to enjoy the vibe of the place.


Barcelona was the last city during my trip. The reason why I always chose beach place for the last; as it helps me to relive the moment of my trip. The moment when you are sitting on the beach watching the beautiful sunset; every good instance of the trip comes into the mind one by one. Barcelona is a treat for an eye. The architecture, the buildings, the lanes etc are unique. The place is aesthetically beautiful & one can notice the same after putting first step in Barcelona. Barcelona has a young crowd. It is warmer than the rest of Europe. Thus, attracts a huge number of crowd. So, if you are in the early twenties this can be a fun ride for sure. The place doesn’t get started till 12 am & it stays open till 6 or 7 am.  The party culture is amazing. However, Barcelona is not all about parties. It also has many attractions like Sagrada Familia, Park Guell etc. The place has breathtaking scenery & chill out environment. Barcelona will surely be in my top 3 destinations to visit TILL NOW  😛.

This was based on my experience, after my visit to Europe. I suggested my friend visit Barcelona for sure & he too liked the place. I would suggest you guys as well to travel to these places & experience the aura of the place.

How To Find Cheap Flight Tickets

There is so much to think about when planning for a trip. The task gets tough if one is planning for budget trip. The foremost cost that comes into the mind is of flights. It is difficult to find cheap flight tickets. But, this is not true there are few ways to search for the cheapest flight tickets. But, to do this one needs to be super active & should have pre-planned everything prior. In this post, I am going to suggest few ways to find the cheapest flight for the trip.

Thus far I have traveled to several countries. I have visited China, South East Asia & Europe the & only thing that made this possible is the flight tickets. Being a budget traveler it becomes important to chose flights which are cost effective. So, not taking any more time I would like to suggest best ways to find cheap flight tickets.

Incognito Mode:

The invisible mode in browser can be an important factor while searching for a flight. There are many incidents where ticket provider escalates the cost of the flight tickets while searching. Ticket provider tracks your IP address & they particularly know for how long you are on a page. They can even capture your cache memory or your activities & based on that they escalate cost. The best way to beat this price rise is through searching flights in incognito mode.

Pre Planning:

If one is pretty sure about the time of holiday. The best offer can be availed until 6 weeks prior to the flying. Reason for lower prices is as people are not adamant about the trip no body really books the tickets that early. Thus, there is a lot of space to book tickets based on comfort. While planning for abroad. I have experienced this each  & every time. The closer I book tickets from flying time; the costlier ticket gets. So, the best time would be to book at least 45 days before the date of the journey or even before that.

Search Engine:

Once everything is planned. The thing we get stuck with is the search engine. In this internet age, there are many players which help people like us to travel cheaply.

Sky Scanner:

Probably one of the best search engines available at the present moment. The website is easy to use & has a fantastic user interface. Along with searching flights between two cities. The search engine also helps you to find the cheapest flight anywhere in the world. There is an option of seeing when fair would be high & when you can find lower fares. While planning a trip this is very handy. However, the only drawback of using this website is price fluctuation. There were many instances where price shoots up at the time of payment. But, other than that everything is smooth on this site. Check yourself


Google Flights:

Google flight is a nice place to find flights to different part of the world. One needs to fill basic information. After that Google will handle everything. One can search for flights to anywhere in the world. So, if you are not decided on where to go. This can be really very helpful. Depending on the budget for flights, it is easy to find destination & loose yourself in this wonderful world.

Google flights


Jetradar is another flight aggregator available to travelers to choose from. The interface is attractive & searching is really fun. However, they still need to find the perfect balance between the searches & aggregators. One can refer this website as well if looking for a broader reach.


Search Flight To Nearby City:

Usually, flight connectivity to less touristic destinations is very costly. The best way would be to book a flight to near by city, which has huge air traffic. That way one can get a cheap flight. The difference can be huge depending on the time of booking.


Budget air flights like AirAsia are good option for traveling. But, the only problem with these airlines is luggage. They only allow cabin luggage. So, if one is traveling lightly this can be a money saving option.

These methods will surely help you to find cheap flights to your dream destinations. Also, there is some blog post mentioning that last moment tickets are cheap. But, finding these are pretty hard. I tried to do it a couple of time. But, was never able to find one. I would suggest to book flight well in advance. So, that you can avail all the best offers.

Try these tips & enjoy traveling

First Impression of Paris

Disney Pixar GIFs - Find & Share on GIPHY

Paris capital of France is one of the most famous cities in the world. This city lone attracts 20 million tourists every year. Paris is known for its fashion, architect & museums. First timers are always in the aww with the place; especially with the aura of the Eiffel Tower. It is one of the sites which will forever be engraved in your senses.

“I am on a bus traveling to Paris. It’s already 9:30 pm & sun is about to set. It’s strange to experience the sunset as late as 10 pm. The bus stopped at the bus station & looking for the way to reach my hotel. It is getting late. I entered a metro station, a vintage feeling of the metro. After figuring out the way I took a  ticket. People are waiting for their turn to get on the train. The empty coaches are bliss especially after traveling in jam-packed trains in India. There are people kissing each other, romance is in the air. Everyone is minding their own business

I still need to cover few km before I reach my hotel room. I booked the cheapest hotel available on Booking.com. The name of the place was Hotel Paris. From metro, I am looking out of the window to get the glimpse of the city. From outside it is difficult to get the feel of the city.”

“I get down at my stop, it’s already dark; I doubt I could roam the city at this hour. But, I need to have something to eat.” Finding hotel was a difficult part as there was no sign & nobody knew exactly where is the place. I figured out the place with great difficulty & went straight ahead to my room. “In the whole day, this is the best part I talked to myself, I could see the whole city in front of my eyes. The distant view of Eiffel tower is pumping my energy level. I feel this will be exciting. I am roaming the streets in search for some food. Most of the shops are closed &  the shady environment is scary. The colored men are roaming & it is making me more scarier. There is one shop I chose to enter but it was on the verge of closing down. So, I need to move some other place. I had a sandwich at one vanilla shop. The taste was not that great however for empty stomach it was much-needed input.

The next morning I had a local guide booked from the Local Guddy. Most of the day went while exploring the museums, lock bridge & few gardens. There was one story of a priest who fell in love with the women which was considered as a sin during those times. However, they some how managed to make it work. The sculpture of them is still engraved in the doors of the city. There is a reason why Paris is considered as one of the most romantic cities in the world & story like these stamp authority on the same.

After spending most of the day traveling across the city & enjoying the architecture of the city. I sat near Eiffel tower.  “There is a huge steel structure in front of me, the mighty structure is nothing which is shown in the photos. The beauty of the structure is unmatched. I have never seen anything like this. A blue background & beautifully build structure is a calming experience. People are sitting in the park & enjoying this scenic view. The sun is about to set. I am waiting for lights to get on. I think most of the people are waiting for this only.”

After an hour

“The crowd is still building up, the sun is slowly getting vanished. The dark is capturing the moment & slowly far away lights are lighting up the tower. There are people who started clapping after tower starts to glow up. To add to the already mesmerizing evening a group of musicians started playing the music of Titanic. The view was one of its kind of experience. I am amazed how some structure can have so much to tell. I sat here for nearly 2 hours without getting tired. It was overwhelming to review my life story in front of this tower. I am still sitting there & still looking at this might figure wondering why I travel solo & then realize this is how it is ought to be. Travel to far places to enjoy the beauty of it. Leaving behind the stress of daily life & truly enjoying the moment.”
