Back of the blog – Great Travel Books and Travel Movies

Back of the blog. Here we will share tit-bits and snippets on India/World Travel which may be useful for a traveller. It may be some new information about the place, a new cuisine one can explore, a bit of history, a funny anecdote or a good travel book. Anything connected to Travel. 

We love reading travelogues and travel books. Whether it is Chatwin or Stevenson or Theroux or Bryson, we love reading them all.
