View of mountains and fir trees from Lal Tibba Landour

Sun-dappled paths lined with fir trees; endless green vistas ending in a horizon of snow-capped mountains; cottages with English and Irish names; birdsong that you can actually hear, all through the day. When I close my eyes and remember Landour, these are the first memories that come to me. I spent a long weekend in Landour in the spring and came back completely head over heels in love—  blown away by the beauty of the tiny cantonment hill station,…

How To Meet Travellers On The Road With CouchSurfing For some people, travel joy tastes the best when it can be shared with others.

The best time to visit Shillong and Cherrapunji: Monsoon! One part of India that I had not visited at all in my years of travelling, was the north-eastern states. I finally broke that jinx by visiting Meghalaya, the predominantly tribal state carved out of Assam in the 1970's. After my wonderful trip to Meghalaya in the height of the rains, I am now convinced that the monsoon is the best time to visit Shillong and Cherrapunji, the two most important places to see in Meghalaya.

I’m now a huge fan of Meghalaya’s natural beauty,  and would love to share with you a little information about the places to visit in Shillong and Cherrapunji.

Things women travelling solo will hear I wrote an earlier post about why I choose to often travel solo. Solo travel by women is getting increasingly common across the world.

Hence, we also get to field a lot of curious queries. Here are some things that women travelling solo would often hear:
