A short trip for the busy folks.

Hello to you ;).

Happy new Year and welcome to our first post on traveling. 

Travelling has been my passion since I don’t know when. It is believed that what you do on the first of a year comes along all the way to the end of it. This new year, I decided to welcome 2017 with a little adventure. 

In my little bubble of adventure, I covered Jammu- Vaishno Devi, such a lively place I say and local.

Punjab- Amritsar-Harmandir Sahib, a.k.a The Golden Temple, an embodiment of peace and harmony and local.

Wagha- India-Pakistan Border- The first line of Defence.

Delhi- The capital. Akshardham- One of the Largest Temples of the world and last but not the least, Shopping sprees. ❤

Vaishno Devi

We started early in the morning at 4 from our place of residence, reached Katra at 5:30 AM, took our Yatra tickets at the Katra bus stand ( P.S: we had to go down the hill again for those tickets. They’re free but don’t forget to get them *chilling auto ride*).

Started our climb, mounted on horses at 6:30 AM and reached the hill top at 9:30.

It took 1 hour for us for Darshan, all that hours of climbing is definitely worth it. ❤

The view from the hilltop was amazing. ❤

The place is so lively 24/7. It’s a thrilling experience.

We came back at 2 in the afternoon.

The next was Jammu local tour. We visited Raghunath temple, Amar mahal palace, A cave temple. Camera wasn’t allowed everywhere. 😦

Note: Pre-paid sims don’t work in Jammu. It’s good to be away from technology for some days, but in case of emergencies do carry a postpaid sim card with you.

Punjab-Amritsar

Harmandir Sahib a.k.a The Golden Temple.

It’s a place I’d rather settle down at. Such peace and harmony and luscious food.

Who could possibly say no? ❤

And JallianWala Bagh. 😦

We went on a little local tour of temples around and then off to THE BORDER.

Wagha-India-Pakistan Border.

It was one of THE evenings of my life.

Delhi-The Capital 

We went to see Akshardham. It’s a place worth visiting. Being one of the largest temples of the world with the storytelling of the life of Swaminarayan through robotics. Those exhibitions are worth your time. Took a complete day out at Akshardham.

All this was covered in a span of 6 days.

What are you waiting for?

January has a good set of weekends.

Happy Travelling. 😀
