जंगल में रास्ते तो थे नही…गाडियों के टायर से बनी जगह इतनी उबड़ खाबड़ होती थी उस पर तेज़ चलना संभव नही था फिर दिन दिन भर खुली छत से खड़े हुए देखना आखिर थका देता है…कभी किसी पेड़ की डाल पे बैठा तेंदुआ तो कही झाड़ियो में शेरो का परिवार…अचानक कही से जिराफ या जेब्रा का दौड़ते हुए निकल जाना….लग रहा था की कोई नेशनल जियोग्राफिक या एनिमल प्लेनेट टीवी देख रहे है…विश्वास नही हो रहा था की ये सब नज़रो के सामने घटित हो रहा है।Read More

We woke up early next morning as per our itinerary with excitement to experience some of the grandest waterfalls of the region. We started by witnessing the famous Elephant Falls in Shillong, The falls which is locally called “Kshaid Lai Pateng Khohsiew” or three step falls, was coined “Elephant falls” by the British due to the rock on the left side that resembled an elephant.
Jaipur is renowned for its colorful markets, gorgeous handlooms and wonderfully laid out gardens. The people are very cheerful and friendly. Don’t forget to try the famous Rajasthan delicacies including the thali. Rajasthani arts and handicrafts are things that you can’t afford to miss.
You are really spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants in Goa. Besides the beach shacks, where you can sit on the sands and gaze out at the sea, sipping on a drink, while waiting an hour or two for your meal to arrive, there are many restaurants inland which also serve excellent food at very reasonable rates. There is a fusion of East and West, Portugese and Indian, meat and vegetables, which makes Goan cuisine unique. Coconut is used liberally, along with other Indian spices in the cooking. ‘Fish curry rice’ is the most common food and available virtually in every restaurant. The different types of seafood on offer in Goa includes pomfret, kingfish, ladyfish, mackerel, tuna, shark, crab, prawn, lobster, squid and mussels. Chicken, pork, mutton and beef dishes are also on offer at all the restaurants, cooked in the popular Goan flavours such as vindaloo, balchao, recheado, xhacuti and caldin.
We had already planned that we would include at least one meal out at a shack or restaurant in our daily sight-seeing itinerary. One precaution we always took was to carry our own drinking water if we did not want to order a drink, or pay for a bottle of branded mineral water.
