Thought for the day !

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

J.R.R Tolkein

Meditation by the poolside !

This year one of the resolutions I made was to spend more time on me – meditating , working out and doing yoga ! As well my usual me time at the local spas and those when I travel …

Given its mid January already I decided to kickstart my meditative journey right here at the Radisson Blu resort and spa in Alibaug. I’ve been planning on embarking on this journey since a friend of mine has been raving about how it has made him a happier , calmer and better person !

Iphone and iPad have apps that help with meditating and the one I have used is an app called the Insight Timer . (It’s free so you should definitely check it out and give it a shot).


So this morning I woke up and headed to the beautiful poolside along with my headphones and iphone to spend some me-time . It was really refreshing and I promise to do this more often as I found it relaxing , rejuvenating and really easy to do no matter where I am travelling to !


How many of your resolutions have you started working on ?

2014 Travel Diaries

After bringing in the new year at our house in Lonavala I was looking forward to the upcoming break in Alibaug with hubby dearest .
What better way to bring in your birthday than at a Spa resort with your partner ! Alibaug is ideal for a quick getaway especially during the ‘winter’ season in Mumbai.

About an hour by catamaran the journey culminates at the Mandwa port where the catamaran guys have a free service to take you into the main market from where you can take a rickshaw to your hotel.

We decided to check out the Radisson Blu property in Alibaug because it came highly recommended and was fairly well priced on my favourite Booking.com

We used the catamaran services from PNP travels ( have a counter at the Gateway of India and the boats leave every 2 hours priced at ₹ 140 per person one way journey)

Our rickshaw guy gave us his number and charged us ₹ 70 from the bus drop point till our hotel – Arif (I can share his number so inbox me !)

I can’t wait to share my experience with you ! Till then I’m going to enjoy the pool and and the good weather ! Xoxox
