2015 was a good year of travel for us. From trekking in Ladakh to river rafting on Ganges in Rishikeh to forests in nearby Dandeli  and of course a quick criss cross across USA, it was a year of exploring and experiencing. We look forward to more such experiences in 2016 and will share them in in these pages.

As ever, we are thankful to H V Kumar, for all the help in planning this trip.

We wish you all a very Happy and Fabulous New Year! Be with us. Happy travelling!

Poorna & Brinda

We are Brinda and Poorna from Bengaluru, the “Silicon city” or “Garden city” of India.

We travel together. We caught the travel bug 20 years back. On our honey moon, we traveled over the sea, in the train, by bus and in an aircraft! Our adventures probably started in that year. It continues, ever since.
