Goa is a place where it all began! Yep!

I remember it was my birthday, and none of my friends had the money or the time to travel from Delhi to Goa. I am talking about 2016 and it was a big deal for me to go just with Rach (@meanderandwander) back in those days. This is the place where I realized what it feels like to live on your own terms, feel liberal and independent at the same time. The place where the traveling escapade started.

Fast forward to 2018, we saw the unseen places of Goa. The ones where fewer people go. The has been a massive shift in my traveling preferences and I would rather go to a beach where not a single soul is there than the mainstream places of Baga beach.

And that is exactly why I would like to go to Goa again. Maybe to discover the Southside the next time?

    The Streets of Kolkata
✨
✨
Being the old capital city of British India, I knew I’d find many historic sights in Kolkata (formerly known as Calcutta) during my trip. And even though I love admiring grand architecture, museums filled with stories of yesteryears, and touristic places in general; I knew that I wanted to do more than just see the popular landmarks of Kolkata.
✨
✨
I had read many blogs about how Kolkata lives in its streets and thats exactly what I wanted to experience. I wanted to walk in its heritage neighbourhoods till my feet hurt and press click every time I saw a cute house or two. I wanted to see how the local people go about their day and learn about the past of their city straight from them and their experiences. I wanted to explore streets that no guide tells you to, and I wanted to find beautiful corners such as this one, by myself. ✨
✨
So during my 2 and a half days in Kolkata, that’s exactly what I did. Sure I visited a few touristic places early morning for sunrise shoots, but I always kept my afternoon and evening free to explore residential areas such as this one. The feeling of not knowing what you are going to find and then stumbling upon something so picturesque is a travel experience that I am always going to remember. ✨
✨
CG’s tip: This particular house is located in the Shobha bazaar neighbourhood of North Kolkata. North Kolkata has many areas like this one and even if you cant find the exact same house, you are going to come across many picturesque buildings that will make all the walking worth it. So don’t forget to walk around and let the city unfold its magic in front of you.
