Hope✨

Have your ever felt that you stay in house just lounging, cooking and not caring how you look and just be however the fuck you want?

I guess we all did! Well, it’s the time. 

Spend this time to boost your immune system. Do what makes you happy. Need not be super productive. Playing cards, online  games, reading a book, making TikTok videos, creating social media content. Spend your time in a non stressful way. Just take a break from the chaos of your daily life and try to be little more happy than yesterday.

And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.

And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

“And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.” – beautifully written by – Kitty o’meara

Let’s hope for a better tomorrow with the better world, humans coming out of their closets with fresh minds and beautiful souls.

Solo Travel – Toronto

Hi guys, How are y’all?

As you might have seen I was in Toronto a few days ago. I travelled all by myself. From booking the travel tickets to booking the rooms and having fun experiences there, I did it myself.

Solo travelled for the first in my life. I kinda liked it, but i’d prefer traveling with the people I love lol. I realized the value of people who travelled with me. I enjoyed my company, interacted with a lot of new people, made Instagram friends (if you know what that means) which I am pretty sure wouldn’t do if I’m with someone. Some people love travelling solo coz they feel like they lose themselves in the process and have to do things for others. But I like that more, because when you love the people around, the compromise would’t matter and you become even more happier soul. Trust me, I honestly missed the people every part of my holiday/trip. I did some the self portraits there as well, which y’all can see. Also, I have worked with some of the photographers which I’ll be sharing in my next post.

I honestly do not know how people travel alone. I was so scared and everytime I was walking on the streets I put my heart in my hands. I was constantly making sure I was okay. Every time, I feel sad after the holiday reaching home. But, this time I took a deep breath after seeing me in my room safe and sound. I was happy that I was back home. I think it’s because of how we grew up, I was never sent alone anywhere, but I always hated it. After seeing all the news coming up, I donot have anything to argue with my parents. Especially girls, be careful if you travel alone, make sure to update your family/ friends. Let’s think of our family/ friends who are waiting for us at homes. It’s okay to not party in the late nights. It’s okay to not put up stories to show people you are having a social life. It’s okay to not show people you are at some fancy club dancing with a drink in your hand. It’s okay to not live Instagram life. Let’s not believe in what we see on Instagram everyday. Wake up and see the world. Be yourself. Do not change for the society and put yourself in the bad company.

If I can do it, y’all can do it. If you wanna experience it, well be planned and prepared and have fun.

My Mumbai Getaway

Hi guys,

It’s been so long. I hope everyone is having an amazing vacation. And everyone is staying hydrated this summers.

It’s been a year I’ve started my Youtube channel(YAY), I am not very regular there, but I hope you guys watch my videos and subscribe.

Coming to today’s post, I’ve recently gone for a getaway for my birthday weekend to Mumbai, India, the city which is close to my heart, which I did not want to vlog, so I’m writing down my experience and link all the hotels I’ve stayed as I have received many dm’s on Instagram asking for them.

We boarded the flight on Friday morning at Kempagowda airport, Blr. And the flight got delayed due to the rains in Mumbai. It was raining heavily when we landed in Mumbai. We went to the mall near the airport just to look around.

We shopped, ate and later went to Andheri East for our Airbnb. https://www.airbnb.co.in/rooms/30053307?source_impression_id=p3_1563513072_T8Y77Tns7MnnWLwM

Calvin was our host and the place was way too beautiful. Fell in love with the décor. I loved the architectural design and how creatively the place was done. The place had everything one needs. You wake up to the greens around you. For greenery lovers, the place looks even more beautiful. The vines, the view of the goldmohur, the modern bohemian feel of the place, everything is just perfect. It’s a perfect getaway spot, so cosy and a peaceful corner away from the hassles of the city. This little paradise is a must-try place if you want something near the airport.

We took showers and went to some clubbing on Friday night.

Day 2

We woke up a little early in the morning and went to one of the iconic places in Mumbai, Worli Sealink, Bandra, and clicked pictures. Thanks to Naveen and Akash for clicking amazing shots. Later, went back to our Airbnb, packed everything and went to Colaba, South Mumbai. We had our lunch at Pa-Pa-Ya.

Worli SeaLink

We then checked in to one of the Bombay’s first luxurious hotel, Abode Bombay. https://abodeboutiquehotels.com.

This place was a tranquil haven of design and style with a lot of thoughtful touches. If you are looking for a vintage and bohemian and luxurious stay with everything is taken care of, from amenities to city guide to small tiny detailed things, this is the place to be. The room is very thoughtfully done. The hosts, Nobert and Nilesh were super kinds, humble and super interactive. The ambience is rare you’d find in Mumbai.  Location is great and I loved it being right next to Gateway of India, Colaba Causeway. The common area with many high ceilings, library, display of local art was a lovely space. Loved the safe locker inside the room. The best part of the hotel is its breakfast, which I will discuss later. I think this is one of the best hotels if you were looking for a perfect getaway in a vintage luxurious way.

All in all both of the places are beautifully designed, providing for the photo opportunities at every corner of the place which enriched our stay even more.

Later on, we got freshen up and went to Starbaee for some drinks and Colaba Causeway for some shopping, and roamed around the streets. Then, we went to one of my favourite places, Marine Drive and ended our day. We had food from one of the famous roadside restaurants Bademiya, right in front of our hotel. The food was beyond amazing.

Day 3

We woke up early in the morning to get some early morning shots near Gateway of India, roamed around the city, later had one of the best breakfasts I had in a long time. The buffet breakfast was so yummy. It had a great range of variety between continental and Indian style dishes and was perfect. 100/100! We rested after a happy meal lol. We went to one of the biggest malls, Palladium, spoiled ourselves, got birthday gifts. And headed to the airport. We spent some time having massages and eating at the airport. Landed back in Blr in the evening.

This getaway was amazing. I already miss this place and all the time we had back in there.

Hope you liked the post and my little story.

Until next time…
