Sparkle #173: Travel Wishlist – India Edition

It is so much fun to create a travel wishlist for the year. Last year, Paris was right at the top of my list, and I was so thrilled when that trip actually happened! So there is definitely some merit in thinking about where you want to travel this year. If you have clear dreams and plans, the universe might just conspire to make it happen! This year, my travel wishlist is restricted to specific places in India. I am not planning any international trips by myself, but would be happy if life throws up any surprises in this department! I am trying to save for a backpacking trip across Europe in 2017, so…

Sparkle #127: Travel Words To Love

Sometimes travel inspiration can strike anywhere, even when reading a word! There are some unique words in English and other languages which beautifully capture the emotions of a wandering soul. If your travel vocabulary starts at adventure and ends at wanderlust, then you might want to refresh it with something more interesting from the options given below! Aren’t these travel words fascinating? My favorite one is ‘drapetomania’, I often feel this irresistible urge to just run away to towns, cities and countries – familiar and unknown. Which one of these do you identify with as a traveler?

This week, I am off again for some business travel within the country. It’s a short trip packed with lots of work, but I am sure I will have exciting stories to share with you once I return this weekend! As much as I…

Sparkle #95: Travel Manifestos

I know what you are thinking – why am I writing about manifestos today? A manifesto sounds like a very serious term, something that we would associate more with politics and less with travel. Loosely defined, a manifesto means a public declaration of intentions and views of an individual or group. However, having a manifesto need not be restricted to just political parties or people; one can establish intentions for any facet of their life!  These days, people come up with plenty of interesting manifestos focusing on different themes such as health and nutrition, spirituality, mindful living, specific hobbies like travel and other activities connected with their lives. If…
