Neemrana - Delhi Weekend Gateway

Image
With the onset of holiday season, I thought of penning down my Neemrana experience, one of the favorite weekend gateways from Delhi. Neemrana is situated in the Alwar district of Rajasthan. The state has beautifully built forts and palaces that depicts the rich culture and heritage.

Me and my husband drove from Delhi to Neemrana and it took us about 2 hours to reach. Situated at a distance of 122 Km, in middle of barren land, the fort is a treat to the eyes. It is a site of the 16th century and was occupied by the Chauhan rulers until 1947. There is a specific parking lot and the fort also have rooms for the overnight stay. Do remember to make advance bookings for your ease. The entry charges are 1900 with a delicious buffet lunch. Caution: Outside food is not allowed inside the fort :P. 
Best time to visit Neemrana is from Sep - March as the weather is quite pleasant in this duration. An ideal duration stay would be 1 day or max overnight stay.

Shimla - Queen of Hill Stations

Image
Last month, it was a wedding season and I had to visit Shimla to attend my friend's wedding. Considering the onset of winters and the upcoming weekend I planned to convert it into a wedding vacation ...Yipeee ... 2 hours and the tatkal bookings and hotels were all checked, bags packed and we were ready to explore Shimla !!


Day 1 - 19 November, 2016
With the much excitement on, we left New Delhi on Saturday morning in Shatabdi and arrived at Kalka around 11:50AM. Boarded a sharing cab to Shimla and off we were on the zig zag trails. The weather was super pleasant, chilly winds and little sunshine welcomed us to the crowded mall road of Shimla. We trekked onto our hotel which was near to the ridge - Hotel Shiwalik regency, pretty average one, we got a good deal though :P. Tired and exhausted, we crashed onto our beds for almost 3 hours. Post the evening snacks we strolled at the ridge, sneaking the Shimla's dazzling night view. Had a light dinner at the Sher-e-Punjab restaurant …

Cairns, Australia ... A Magical Wonder !!!

Image
Hey Guys,

Cairns was our second destination in Australia post Sydney. A memorable trip indeed with quite a few bitter experiences as well, all in all it is a must visit place to be. We landed in Cairns just to realize that my husband has lost his zara jacket. We were running through the lost and found department of the airport, but alas ! no luck. Boarded our cab and reached hotel - The Pacific. It was a pleasant weather throughout our 3 day stay in Cairns and drizzled for quite a few hours as well. Sea was rough for the entire duration and we were a little unlucky as we could not enjoy the fun of snorkeling and soak sun at the green island.

We booked a tour from hotel helpdesk. The irish guy was really helpful as he helped in customizing our package. We got 2 deals, one for Kuranda scenic rail + Skyrail and the second one for Great Barrier Reef + Green Island.

Below are the highlights of our stay -
