On My Plate: The Classic South Indian Meal @ Madurai Kumar Mess, Chennai

  Chennai; the city I can gladly call home, was not just a delight to my soul but also my tummy. Yes, if you are in Chennai and if you love food (of course, you love food) you have to try everything that the cultural hub of Tamil Nadu has to offer. No visit to Chennai is complete without rolling your sleeves up and going the whole hog (seriously, completely) on food larger than life. I am not kidding, the food served in the banana leaf was larger than life. While most of you might think that the city has …

Through My Soulful Lens: Holipura Village Visit Around Chambal

  What comes to your mind, when you first think of Chambal? Do you think about Phoolan Devi or Paan Singh Tomar? I know even the name ‘Chambal’ creates a fear in our mind but the time has changed. The ravines of the Chambal village no longer house the famous dacoits. The ravines of Chambal (Madhya Pradesh’s Morena and Uttar Pradesh’s Bundalkhand) might definitely be a house to a thousand folklores once upon a time, the ones that are mostly narrated by our grannies in an attempt to threaten us but the village holds much more than what we’ve always …

Home Away From Home At Kaas Plateau: Valley Of Flowers

As the monsoon started settling down a little and my mom started counting down her 50th birthday, all I could feel was to take her out for a trip. She has always been a dreamer, a person who loves being at peace and enjoy moments alone. And as I scrolled through Instagram, I thought why not, Kaas plateau. One of Maharashtra’s most unusual landscapes; Kaas plateau is enveloped in flowers of various kinds four months every year. With waterfalls everywhere, clouds trailing around you and lush green plants singing the melodies of the crisp weather; Kaas plateau is a delight …

Famous Churches In A Nutshell: Goa Travel Diary

We all know Goa is well known for being the party capital of India. Visitors from all over the world make their way to Goa for a fun frolic vacation. While the city of Goa is all about parties, sun, beer and the sand, it is also known for its monumental churches and exemplary architecture. Goa’s tryst with the Portuguese heritage and history cannot be overlooked. Unlike the image that we have of the state, it offers you the finest examples of stunning Portuguese designs. While they might have ruled us over the years, we cannot curse them for giving us …

Hampi is magical! You must go to Hampi!

Hampi. Let me admit this, being a North Indian girl and living in Madhya Pradesh all my life, the first time when I went through the pictures of this region, I found them pretty sober and somewhere close to Mandav. I decided that I would rather travel way past Kerala and visit the tea plantations or maybe take a river cruise. Well, after a lot of thought, I somehow settled my mind for Goa and then to Hampi. Hampi; as I heard from a lot of people is a hippie paradise; an unexpected place with really jagged rocks, rice paddy fields, …

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 …

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, …

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 …
