Gokarna travel diary – “How it changed her life”

Travelling has always been my way of making sense of life”. The fact that I will be someplace far away from the rat race. Sitting in the corner, listening to the sound of the water crashing on the nearby rocks or the waves hitting the beach. The wind brushing through my hair and the smell of the soil. Anyway, right after moving to Bangalore we formed this enthusiastic group of people who decided to travel every two months. Our first trip together was in April 2016, Gokarna. It can be said that Gokarna is a tropical heaven. We stayed at this beautiful wooden shack facing the beach, lived on seafood and beer, swam in the water till the sun went down. So, this is my travel diary of gokarna and how it changed my life. A truly life changing experience.

The seven-sisters offer immense support to talented artists in the form of massive local enthusiasm and gorgeous landscapes; it’s no wonder these states are oozing with creative talent. If you love the travel and music combo then you should not miss out on North eastern India.

So, here I begin my bumpy story as I witnessed it.

I had successfully managed to not go to NH7 Weekender so I could save up for this musician I had freshly discovered- Eric Martin, who was going to perform in India in November. Eric Martin happens to be the vocalist of a well-known band called Mr. Big and has this unique raspy voice that had me hooked for good. After a huge confusion between Guwahati and Shillong, given that the musician was performing in both the cities on consecutive days, I decided that I’d go watch him in the former and then go around exploring Shillong.

Why College Students Should Backpack

I choose not to start with the traditional way of explaining how beautiful a thing backpacking is.
So I will just shift to the purpose instead. But first, you need to know what college is apart from being an educational business land. It definitely is a long chapter among the contents of the catalog that society lays down for you calling it “your” life: primary to secondary to plus two to college and then to work. That is all. And once you step out of this miserable status quo, society freaks out to you.
But till you aren’t freaked out, this is the best thing you can do for yourself. So why?

Forget pricey hotels, say hello to backpacker hostels

Almost everyone has seen the Kangana Ranaut starrer movie, “Queen” (if you haven’t, let us know the address of the rock you’re living under!) In the movie, a heart-broken Kangana traverses Europe and finds love in adventure, stories, wanderlust and most importantly – herself! While she is in Amsterdam, Kangana finds happiness in the unlikeliest of places – the hostel she’s living in. Yes, you read right – hostel! Backpacker hostels are a new trend in travel accommodation all around the world and hostels in india are catching up to this trend.

When you hear the word hostel, the first thing which comes to our mind is discipline, smelly loose, terrible mess food and maybe the Amitabh Bachchan ruled Gurukul from Mohabattein (SRK fans, amirite?). But the hostels in india and across the world are totally fun and interesting. Across the world, hostels are synonymous with unique hip n hop budget accommodation for backpackers and wanderlust-full souls much like yourself.
