Weekend getaway this season 2018 pavna lake and lohgad fort

Pavna lake is another great getaway this season for long weekend. Around two and half hours drive from Mumbai this place is really beautiful and scenic. If you love nature and peaceful atmosphere this is the place for you. The lake has crystal clear water and the soothing atmosphere and is definitely going to rejuvenate you to your highest level of energy.

Spending some time there and choose to spend some more adventurous time, then move to lohgad fort. This is a great fort from the time of shivaji maharaj and is a wonderful place. It is situated at a really great altitude to give you beautiful view of the entire area. You will come across really big stairs to climb and a wonderful exercise reaching the top and coming down. If you are carrying eatables better be aware of monkeys. You have awesome feel at the top and there are beautiful lakes with clear water at the top. You also have a Shiva temple on the top.

By the time you are back you will definitely have great memories, beautiful pics of your time there which needs to be shared on Facebook. Have fun and come back with great energy.

My travel experience, Jaipur

Ever wondered how rich is our cultural heritage. You will definitely amused to see Rajasthan. I had been to Jaipur this holiday season which was really mesmerizing. The rich architectural heritage our country has is worth spending your time not once but it would definitely make you revisit them again. The monuments that are symbol of ancient era are really worth spending time. The places I could cover in this visit of mine I would like to mention here:

Jaigarh fort: it is one or the beautiful places constructed there. The most talked about point is the Canon. This is the major attraction of the place. It took thirty years to build the cannon and was used only once.

The place is full of the story used by the emperor during those times. It also has a beautiful presentation of the areas used for discussion, female dining area, male dining area. The view from the top is unmatched. Visit during winters from November to early March.

Amber Palace: this is still one of the property managed by private ownership but the work is done really well. The carvings on the pillars are really exquisite and is adorable. The place has nominal entry fee but is worth spending time if you love architecture.

It still has beautifully managed gardens and every corner of the fort can tell you a story. There are beautiful shows presented during the evenings and it is one great attraction for the place.

Sheesh Mahal: this is present inside Amber palace itself but is one unique feature in itself. It was supposed to be the Diwan-e-khas of the emperor. The attraction is the glass effect carvings of the era. It has beautiful shine and feel. People just cannot resist clicks there.

The key point to mention is the corner where you stand one side and other person can click your pic in the mirror as if you are in the painting. You will love to see this. Sheesh Mahal is really beautiful.

Hawa Mahal: Hawa Mahal is known for its beautiful ventilation the windows or jharokha. The sleek appearance in front and different levels have been built beautifully. The presence of stairs and ramp is fit for everyone to choose how they want to go up.

Though it is situated in the centre of pink city but it still holds its unique attraction and beauty. The place features the beautiful knowledge of architecture maximizing airflow.

Nahargadh Biological and zoological Park: If you are visiting with your kids, nothing is more attractive for them. There are carnivorous animals like lion, tiger, white tiger, hyena etc managed beautifully. The trees and plants have been labelled for people to understand nicely.

Also beautiful birds steal the attention of people visiting.

There are lots of other places like pushkar and ajmer that can be clubbed along with Jaipur and give you the beautiful memory of the place visited.

Jantar Mantar: the place is very educational and is based on ancient astrology of india.

The mathematical calculations of our ancient contributions are must visit place for our next generation to understand the importance of our country and its rich history.

City Palace: this can be planned along with Hawa Mahal and jantar mantar as all of them are situated in pink city close to each other.

The must try place for foodies is Rajdhani restaurant which serves beautiful authentic taste of Rajasthan.

Thought a little higher on spice, Rajasthani cuisine makes a special place in the hearts of people coming there.

That’s all about Jaipur and I will be back with another rich experience. Bye for now.


Weekend getaway this season 2018

If you look at the calendar this year, it is full of extended weekend holiday. I love it and I am  sure you too and if you are young at heart, you must like long drives and weekend getaways. Sharing my trip to nagaon beach alibaug this weekend. What was amazing was the misty fog around and pleasant climate. This beach has a lot to offer. There are watersports activities like banana boat, parasailing etc. The beach was full of young and energetic crowd. Water is also clear and feels good to be there. After spending hours and tiring yourself in water and on the beach, you would definitely be hungry. Good thing is there are a lot of good places to eat near the beach which offer authentic malwani and konkani cuisine. If you are fond of Konkani food and sea fish, this is definitely your heaven. The hot steaming fish curries and fried fish is definitely going to make your mouth water. Try tasting every dish on the menu card and have competition in your group who eats more, you won’t even come to know how much you ate. Afterall a good holiday is always a memory in the form of pounds we add to our weight and the smile we show on our faces. Ladies, you definitely have a lot more, there are places selling konkan special spices and products which are really reasonably priced. If you love to cook and impress your guests at home, you do have a lot to pick from there. The kokam extracts are also very fresh. When you are back, do not forget to share pics on Facebook and spread the joy. Will give you my next trip takeaways soon.
