A wanderer, who wants to come back home after a while, only to long to go out, wandering again.

We live only once. It would be such a waste to come into this world and go away without seeing what else and who else existed on it. And so my dream of seeing the world before I die.

It is difficult to fight the gutsy urges of travel that overpower me regularly. Corporate life, (the life I live right now), with all its dynamism, can be quite boring. Nomadic life is what I crave for.

After living in several cities of India, I moved to San Jose, California (US) recently. That, my friends, is my current place of stay.

    Hey nice info abt Vadodara.I am a travelogue director from Delhi,and will be shooting Bazaars of Vadodara from 27-29th sep 2012.was just wondering if I can speak to you or if you or any of your friend can help me out in recce and let me know abt.the intresting facts of Vadodara..Much thans in advance.

  6. Hey,
    I stumbled upon your blog when I searched for food blogger in Vadodara! I wanted to connect with bloggers and possibly start a blogger meet sort of.. While I still haven’t found food bloggers, I am just too happy to land here… Didn’t know about so many places in baroda.
    I have recently left my job and now find a bit too much time on myself…. Will start exploring these places soon! My exploration till now is limited to the palace and the museum.

    I gather you are no longer in baroda.. Is your friend M still here? πŸ™‚


    • Hey.. Congrats for shifting back to BAroda! I am so J… Yes, I left Baroda 2 months ago 😦 I really miss it. Coincidently, my friend M also left few days back! I wish we were there right now; all of us could have connected!

      I have seen quite a few places there; so you can try exploring them. Do write about them from your point of view; would love to read!

      There are also some NGOs and organizations that are into making and selling handicrafts. Will be writing about one soon. You may try exploring them, too.

      I glanced through your food blog and I am going to hit it soon! I am a newbie in the kitchen and I think your blog is going to help me a lot !!

      • :O I went to M’s blog and it seemed that she was still in Baroda.. I was really hoping to find someone to explore the by-lanes of Baroda with.. Couple of days back I went to the old market for the first time (I think your post had something to do with inspiring me to visit there πŸ™‚ )

        Good luck with exploring the kitchen! πŸ™‚ I was a newbie in kitchen 4 years ago.. but it soon got me hooked πŸ™‚ love cooking and experimenting with flavours.. Which was one reason why I loved old market so much.. fresh fruits and much cheaper dry fruits etc..

        Have a great new year! πŸ™‚

      • Hey. Oh, M left from Baroda around 10th Dec. Thats quite a sad coincidence; we 3 could have met up and did some more exploring! Good luck with your explorations! Do keep writing about them!

  7. Pratixa Prajapati

    Hi.. I must say.. amazing work. I am a content writer, blogger and a freelancer. I really appreciate your writing skills.. Good work dear. Do meet up whenever you are in Baroda. I would be glad to team up with you

    • Hey Pratixa. Thank you for your comment! I am sorry for replying so late.

      I have moved out of India, unfortunately. So I am not sure if we will be able to meet up. What exactly do you have in mind? Maybe we can still team up., Internet is everything today.. πŸ™‚ My mail id is ns9869@gmail.com. I also have a FB page, where I can be contacted. Will look fwd to your message!!

    Hey! Its good to come across a blogger like you who loves to explore places…I am from Baroda and now pursuing filmmaking in Mumbai (apparently 2 places which you have covered well πŸ˜› ) I love visiting my hometown once a month,meet up friends and family…I am an amateur photographer and have pushed myself to become better with time..and its sad you have already left the place or would have loved to connect with you πŸ™‚

    • Hi. I have seen your photographs on your blog. Was following your blog actively when I was in India. You are doing a good job at photography. Do put up pics of any of the hidden treasures of BAroda, if you happen to visit sometime. I missed Nazarbaug Palace. It is such an ignored gem. Would love to see its pic..

      Sad that I am no longer in Baroda. Somehow, after I left, lot of fellow bloggers connected with me. Bad timing!

      • Kaval

        Oh I see I am visiting Baroda this weekend πŸ˜› Hoping to socialize and watch iron man 3 along with my buddies πŸ˜‰ wanna drop in some of your memories? lol

  9. Hello,

    My name is Cliff Barre and my wife Tiffany and I are responsible green travelers and active writers for our Peace, Love, and Travel blog. I recently came across your blog and really enjoyed reading your article β€œCalifornia Winter.” I would love a chance to speak with your readers about the idea of Green Travel Tips and how it can help them become eco-friendly travelers and reduce their carbon footprint while traveling. I have some tips for before traveling, during traveling, and some green destinations to travel to.

    If you think this topic, or any other for that matter, would be of interest to your readers, please let me know and I’ll start pulling it together.

    I look forward to hearing back from you, thanks!

    • Thank u! And welcome to Baroda!

      You must visit laxmi palace, to begin with. Its an epic. Second should be ganpati dhule temple. Then see everything I have written about – hazira maqbara, sevasi step well, etc.

      I missed nazarbaag palace. That’s in the old market area. Its beautiful too. Maybe you can do a post on it πŸ™‚

      The whole of Baroda is full of old architecture. Keep looking for those.

      • Thank you so much for welcoming me! πŸ™‚

        I can’t wait to go to the Laxmi Vilas Palace. I love the towers around the old town and am looking forward to going at peace one Sunday and take a few pictures.

        Will definitely do a piece on Nazarbaag palace and thanks so much for all the info. Will keep you updated! πŸ™‚
