Manali is paradise-like when you leave Delhi which is scorching hot! The snow-capped Himalayas, the fresh breeze & slow life; Manali is always the perfect getaway.
Here are a few photos from our trip
We had three brief days to explore the city (again). Here’s me trekking to the waterfall, & I saw a Himalayan dog 🙂
In our second cottage, which was a little far away from the city in a village called Prini. It was blissful here, surrounded by just mountains & no tourists. A much needed alone time! More photo diaries of Paris here: http://ourvagabondstories.com/paris-photo-diary/
A clear sky day after it was raining the entire night & there was n electricity the entire night! A candlelit dinner was nice though 🙂
These cute Angora rabbits!! Cutest rabbits I have ever seen & also the softest to hold!
Hands down THE BEST Fruit Crumble We have EVER had!!! Freshly baked from the outside & warm squishy full of fruits on the inside, served Vanilla ice-cream at Fat Plates Cafe, Manali.
Wouldn’t you love to live in this cottage in the hills?! I would!
An encounter with the tiger. A relaxed dip in the pool. Endless coffees overlooking the Nilgiris. Evenings that turned into night by the bonfire. Wine that never stopped pouring. Birds which never stopped chirping.
The Serai, Bandipur was this and so much more.

This has been a long time coming! Paris was such a delight! A dream city truly, where we got to spend our honeymoon. As soon as we arrived in Paris, we were welcomed by rain & lots of it! Being used to the clear blue skies in other cities of Italy, we were perplexed. Still, Paris was an experience! Here are some photos of our trip.
Venice is definitely one of the most beautiful places I have laid eyes on. The narrow canals with romantic Gondolas passing by, the cute lanes with art galleries & bars in every corner, talented artists sitting & playing instruments that give the entire place another aura; Venice stole my heart. Below are some of the photos of Venice & us enjoying the city!
So, we were staying on the outskirts of Venice, after getting lost for 3 hours in this unknown city, taking 3 wrong buses, breaking our tab, walking on a highway with luggage at night (!!) we finally reached our hotel. Making a wise decision, we took the hotel bus this time to the city & this is what we saw.
Here, we took the City Waterbus pass, which was valid for two days for the entire city. Thankfully this time, we figured the city out & didn’t get lost 😛
Venice felt as if we were lost in time & we wanted to stay there forever!
This is the Doge’s Palace, a must-see when in Venice
Tired of walking around the entire day, i just wanted to rest.
and refreshed enough to pose now 😛
This guy was playing this instrument with a million strings in a narrow streets & being an enclosed space the acoustics of that area was so good; it gave us chills hearing him.
As much as we loved Venice, we adored Rome too! Here’s our Rome photo diary.
Everyone needs a break from the hectic city life, we did too! Which is why we headed to Manali during the Independence Day long weekend. Even though it was pouring heavily, but we decided to brave it! Mostly we couldn’t wait to stay at our Cute little cottages in the hills, which we found through HeyBnb. They have a 24/7 virtual front desk to handle any queries of guests at anytime unlike other online accommodation platforms. We had a wonderful stay & experience by booking through them.
Paris is always a good idea they say. When we reached the city it overwhelmed us, with the beauty, technology, people & the sheer beauty! We wanted to roam the entire city, but you can’t in two days. So we rounded up the top things to do in Paris here:
We tried to capture our trip to Paris, Venice, Florence, Rome & Lyon best we could in a video. Hope you guys enjoy it 🙂
This is the city that stole my heart in the first glimpse. Right from the first look of Rome through the Train station & the next few days on the cobbled streets. Rome made me believe in Paradise!
