Goa- can’t be explained better than this. 🙂
I am sitting in a rooftop terrace garden sipping coffee. The morning breeze cool, gentle. In a distance I can see the St. Sebastian Chapel amid the swaying palms trees. Strains of Alyssa Mendonsa’s soothing Khwabon Ke Parindey fill the air followed by an Enya track.
I’m sitting here drinking coffee just how I like it, listening to music I would’ve generally put on my ipod for, stretching out the knots in my neck and watching it all flown away by this gorgeous Goan morning. Coming to Goa wasn’t planned. Never was on ‘the list’ actually. But when I arrived from Kathmandu to leisurely spend 10 days in Mumbai, I hadn’t anticipated how expensive Mumbai is. Budget-wise 1 day in Mumbai was equal to 5 days in the rest of India! So after 3 nights, I hastily made my way out of the there. Goa only an 1 hour away by…

In the depths of northeastern India, in one of the wettest places on earth, bridges aren’t built — they’re grown.
The southern Khasi and Jaintia hills are humid and warm, crisscrossed by swift-flowing rivers and mountain streams. On the slopes of these hills, a species of Indian rubber tree with an incredibly strong root system thrives and flourishes.
The Ficus elastica produces a series of secondary roots from higher up its trunk and can comfortably perch atop huge boulders along the riverbanks, or even in the middle of the rivers themselves. The War-Khasis, a tribe in Meghalaya, long ago noticed this tree and saw in its powerful roots an opportunity to easily cross the area’s many rivers. Now, whenever and wherever the need arises, they simply grow their bridges.
In order to make a rubber tree’s roots grow in the right direction — say, over a river — the Khasis…

My husband emailed this to me this morning. I found it inspirational so I thought I would share. I need to work on #11 and #12. “Find inner motivation!”

One of my dreams has always been to travel the world. I can’t wait for the day that I’m able to grab a plane to go anywhere my heart desires. Something about traveling has always intrigued me and I hope I’m able to fulfill the longing gap soon!
Learning new cultures and meeting new people is a great aspect of traveling. You get a chance to experience different ways of living and view new habits. The locals are usually very friendly and willing to show you around, so you will get an inside scoop of the place you’re visiting. Don’t be afraid to go exploring by yourself though, you might find a hidden lake or a deserted beach with the most gorgeous sunset!
Since we’re always busy and running around trying to make the most of our time, it’s nice to escape from your ‘normal’ life. The best…

The inaugural #tbt destination is the Khumbu Region of Nepal. Home to the highest point on Earth, Mount Everest, this region is chock full of jaw-dropping and awe-inspiring vistas. Lonely Planet has listed it as the #6 region to visit in it’s ranking of the Best in Travel of 2015. If ever there was a place where the verb “astound” could be freely used, the Khumbu Region would be it.
Of course, I would love to hike to Everest Base Camp (or maybe even further) but the Khumbu is so much more than just a mountain. It’s hundreds of peaks and valleys. Countless high-altitude passes. The confluence of two continental tectonic plates, a (geologically-speaking) fast moving subduction zone prone to earthquakes. Home of the Sherpa, the Khumbu has a distinct cultural feel, strongly Tibetan; and the fluttering prayer flags seem to decorate anything and everything. Supposed Yeti scalps and hands…
