Panchgani, Maharashtra: My Tryst With Clouds & Heights

I am a sucker for all things fluffy. Yes! You may call me a girl who will most likely believe fluffy unicorns exist. And if you guide me to a place where I can find one, I will gladly pack my bags and move. Leaving jokes aside, what will you call vacationing on a hill station like? An invigorating climate that makes you feel like flying the top of the world? Or a feeling where you wish to roar like a tigress, taming life? Or just a normal trip where you get to add on tons of warm clothes and …

On My Plate: Pattaya Street Food

Life is meant to enjoy and eating is one of the life’s greatest pleasures. People in Pattaya are all about appetite and so you’ll find food everywhere. 24 hours a day, even if you get up as early as 6 in the morning, you will find street shop vendors prepping and packing food for people who are leaving for work. They have an early breakfast habit. Not just this, but you’ll get scrumptious food on a satay stick for as little as 5 Baht (i.e. Rs. 10.) Now if you are a foodie like me and you love to experiment …

Exploring The Ruins Of Mandu: The Heritage Paradise Of Central India

A cold night, right after the first summer shower while I sipped the first coffee of the season, I stumbled across memories from this beautiful place 95 kms away from Indore. I scrolled through the pictures on my laptop, and I was struck. I wanted to go beyond the known places, places where my imagination runs wild and weaves history.  Fading colours, dusty floors, lush green surroundings, broken windows, musty smell and lost stories; these are all the things that wait for you at the historic grandeur of this Malwa region.  It was a sudden decision to drive there early in the morning. …

Reminiscence From The Uttar Pradesh Travel Writers’ Conclave 2016- UP Tourism

It’s a big bittersweet day for me here at Cheryl Rambles. Travelling is about exploring new places, making memories, turning the world around for yourself and what not. But today, I miss this one soul quenching place that I went to some time back. I miss the spiritually wealthy and aghast state of our country; Uttar Pradesh. It was the Uttar Pradesh Travel Writers Conclave 2016 that took me to the ecstatic state of colours, charms, prayers, poise and vine love stories. As excited as I am for my next adventure to unfold, there is this state that is surely calling me back, …

Confessions Of A Foodie On A Diet

What do you think of an utterly healthy green leafy diet? Or a state where you sob looking at a bowl of salad and wish if the chia seeds could be replaced by something as slurpy as melted cheese and lettuce dipped in a lot of Mayo? Umm… YUM! Well, if this is the case with you, we are sailing the same boat. Hi, I’m Cheryl and yes you know the foodie in me. Cooking, eating, slurping, baking, presenting, dishing; I bring food up anywhere, anytime. I can easily eat butter, salt Ummm and ok sugar too and all this …

Dear Me, Thank You!

Heartaches, breakups, peer pressure, career setbacks and what not. Well, the list of all these heart-wrenching, grief-stricken words never end. Moreover, every time that these make a way into your life, you end up not loving yourself. I was on a call with my best friend the other night and we were talking about how life has changed for us. From the time we used to feel like there is a lot to do the entire day to the time now that 24 hours seem never enough to get done with our work. It is satiating. And I guess all …

Travel Diary: My Diu Sojourn

There is nothing as liberating as an unplanned trip, and the best way to experience all of it is by road. Undoubtedly, the best memories are made when you are traveling by road, and you meet a lot of people, and of course, you get something to tick off your bucket list too.  While you might have always heard of the names, Daman and Diu together, they are 650 km apart from each other. Diu is very unlike India’s beach destinations. Tussling waves, quiet beaches and a small island linked by a bridge to Gujarat is what makes it different from the other “summer by the …

Lake City, Udaipur: A Soul Quenching Paradise

I am quite a contradiction to an avid traveler. Traveling began as an escapism for me, a hideaway from the rest of the busy world that is muddled with a lot of complexities. Udaipur is meditative, a place that made me want to wander a little more until it hit my saturation level. And, oh, yes, the decision of going to this city began with a little bucket list that I made for myself (A bucket list I’ll be sharing with you guys soon.) Udaipur, resting on the shimmering Lake Pichola with the Aravalli ranges protecting the vibrant lake city was a delight to visit this weekend. …

Been Gone Too Long

Hey Howdy How,  Hope you are all doing great.  I know I have been missing from the scene for a long time now, especially with the old word spew session that I love.  I missed everything, yes I did. Therefore, I AM BACK. My life in Indore has been good, going on and if we talk about it in one word, it has been BUSY! Yes, busy. That miserable, grief- stricken grown up word that we all hate to utter. I like being occupied but being busy to me means having no time for what you want to do or love. Though I am …
