Foodie trip…

food1

As we travel, we have to make a lot of planning in finding out what to take and what not to, so, one of those packing lists is about food.

It is very difficult to travel without the essential things and gears we need and mainly Food, we like many recipes at home, but it’s not same with traveling. you have to waive off the food you like, which cannot be carried while traveling.

As you cannot take eggs with you all time traveling but you can buy it on your way.

And if …

you don’t get anything…, You can carry fruits, salads, and have sandwiches and all solid foods in your Backpack, to keep your journey fresh.

Though Traveling for food is an entirely new stream.

5 points you get when you travel.

1. You taste food that You’ve Never Tried Before.

2. A Country’s Food Tells You A Lot About Their Culture.

3. Food also helps you meet new people, conversation and make new friends. You Get to taste New Flavors and Dishes.

4. Going to new places and trying new dishes and experiencing new flavors.

5. You can have the best meal of your life by having street food. may be,

food 2

Different areas of the world have various new flavors and dishes that you would never even think of. Eating: It’s one of life’s great pleasures. And for travelers, it’s even more than that.

When you’re traveling, food isn’t just about taste and enjoyment, It’s about culture and experience. If you want to get the best food when you’re traveling, you need to know

1. look for Markets while traveling local markets is like your friend. which can buy you interesting food.

2. One important note: localites don’t always know everything and best

… 🙂

but sometimes, When you’re traveling, it’s a good idea to ask the localite for information on where and what to eat.

3. It’s okay to check out local food bloggers in your destination to get info on restaurants and markets and even sometimes offers % which will help you save some money.

As Benjamin Franklin said, “A penny saved is a penny earned?” One of the most famous Americans of his and our time. He held many titles, one of them is WORLD TRAVELER. you know what it means…

you have to taste a culture to understand it. lines by, Deborah Carter.

After all travel for food or food for travel, it starts with Travel. so, lets Pack, Travel and Eat…

Living the dream once in a lifetime …

05

If we talk about the word dream the only thing pops out from the mind is to Travel.

We travel initially, to lose ourselves, to find ourselves, to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than these newspapers publish and to see the life in a different perspective… but, later it became the daily routine of our life, we just need a thought to travel on. 

Firstly we have to make some investment as of TIME, ADJUSTMENTS, CHOICES and very fewer people say about MONEY, Yes you have to invest in some money for Traveling

We think Travel is the best way we have for filling up the beauty of places in our eyes and saving them in our inner soul-memories, Knowing the local culture by eating treats and recipes that are unique to a particular region.

Real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new places but in seeing it with new eyes, we forget about our jobs, our classes, and all our other responsibilities. we travel to escape our routine lives and to move on to a different beat.

Travel in that sense. which guides us toward a better balance of perception and understanding — of seeing the world full of beauty.

The beauty of this whole process was best described by,

Christopher McCandless.

“don’t hesitate or allow yourself to make excuses, just get out and do it. You will be very glad that you did it”

Yet for us, the first great joy of traveling is simply the luxury of leaving all our beliefs and truths at home and seeing everything we thought we knew in a different gleam, and from a twisted angle.

So travel, at heart is just a quick way of keeping our minds mobile and awake.

we travel in large part in search of hardship — both of our own, which we want to feel, and which we need to see. 

we travel to, learn. to discover.to escape. make new friends.

  And new experience.

Experiences help to bring meaning to our lives. They truly shape and define us.

let’s backpack and wonder where the wifi is weak!!!

So tell us, what about you?

MUMBAI – The Gateway to one’s Dreams…

MUMBAI (01)

Mumbai/Bombay according to its recognition, the most popular city in India is Mumbai which is the gateway to one’s dreams. We were not too familiar with Mumbai.

On that day 28th of Jan 2018 we were very eager to hop on to the train as we planned from Pune junction, the train was ready to depart towards Mumbai which we had seen and heard in televisions, read in newspapers and published magazines. Yes, the facts about Mumbai!! As we got down the train at MUMBAI CST. (Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus)

Mumbai CST (02)

Like everyone we too rushed towards the exit of the station, the Mumbai police were doing their duty checking… We were having a bit of fear that this was the first time we had to visit Mumbai, Then we came across the Ticket Checker.

We spent some time over there… as always running Mumbai is the Heart of India. It’s full of wanderers and hardworking individuals, birds, artists, fisherfolks and millionaires, and lots and lots of people

It has India’s most rich film industry, some of Asia’s largest slums and the largest forest in a residential zone.

Mumbai city (03)

Mumbai is India’s financial powerhouse, fashion hub and a point of religious tension.

The heart of the city contains some of the ancient era-architecture on the planet but if you explore a little more you’ll unfold unique bazaars, and India’s premier restaurants, the perfect combination of rich history, this city is known to have something for everybody. So, it’s no more a surprise that Mumbai is commonly known as

‘The City of Dreams’.

gate way of India (03)

Mumbai is also known for its tourism (all throughout the year), Mumbai offers a mixture of everything. From beaches to hills, it has it all. There is also a happening nightlife and filled lifestyle. It is no more a secret!! you would know a lot about this city and what is to be given a visit.

If Mumbai is your introduction to India, prepare yourself, it is Energy…

Priceless words…

Priceless words…01

 There is a voice that doesn’t speak to you…

I start from a seed,

 Sunlight filters through my leaves,

 

Shade hugs my heart,

Alone with myself,

Friendship with musical Birds,

      I am down to earth with connected roots,

  Consume plenty of water,

Stand tall and proud till before I get killed
But have the fear of Wind and Humans.

Our mother earth is🌎 losing its peaceful Environment.

The Same everyone must have a vision of planting green life miles and miles away, which accommodates us with a new living life…


We planned this 5 years before with a name ‘GREEN ARMY’ including every age group in our team, This was the initiation of our work.
we came over and acquired knowledge about the plantation, caring, and locations to plant.


Priceless words…02

Start where you are, Use what you have…

so firstly, we were helping the society members to plant and in gardening. But people were less, we faced many problems too…

But we planned and made our work connected through the medium of social-media, got a push and involvement of more than 200 people.

Then we planted at various monumental places and local areas of Pune city.

Saving trees are the important social awareness nowadays and have been constituted in every student’s life through study, but very fewer people implement it in their life…

Imagine if I gave Wifi signals instead of oxygen, you would be planting so many trees and you’d apparently save me… too bad I only produce OXYGEN you breathe!


Priceless words…03

All my friends are dying  

and no one of you is worried.
I’m losing my shine and skin,
and no one of you is worried.
I’m losing the friendship of those lovely flying creatures,
and no one of you is worried.
Every day somewhere on this
Land one of my mate is chopped off,
and no one of you is worried.
Think like a tree,
and just feel how I get worried
start from a seed
start from a seed.

Be responsible…
