Nalagarh Fort - A weekend getaway

Posted By laveenadiaries 9 days ago on Travel -  During the summer vacation(2018), we decided to take a break from the maddening crowd of cities and indulge in the bliss of hills. While visiting my parents, who live in Kalka, a small town situated at the foothills of Himalayas, I, in company with my spouse and my two sons stopped at Nalagarh Fort.Nalagarh FortNalagarh is a scenic gateway to Himachal Pradesh in North India. It is 300 km north of Delhi, 40 km from Chandigarh, 20 km from Ropar, and 40 km from Kalka. The fort is located on a hillock at the foothills of the mighty Himalayas affording a panoramic view of the Shivalik Hills beyond Sirsa river. It is centrally located and is easily accessible from Manali, Dharamshala, and other hill stations in Himachal Pradesh. Being close to NH21, it is an ideal haven for a weekend geta

Mesmerizing Landour!

Posted By laveenadiaries 10 days ago on Travel - Scenic beauty of LandourLandour at nightDear friends, today let me take you to a beautiful tourist place in Uttrakhand - Landour. It is a small cantonment of the British Era. It is 2 Km from Mussoorie and 35 km from Dehradun. The place is also famous because Ruskin Bond, the eminent English author, resides here. While moving from Mussoorie to Landour, the road became very steep. As we drove uphill, our anxiety level increased and our stomachs started churning. We saw many cars taking a u-turn but my hubby is very good at steering wheel so could easily make it to Landour. I expect the steep slope and small road as the reason behind Landour receiving fewer tourists.We checked about the availability of rooms from various hotels. The options available wereRokeby Manor- It is a heritage prope

Indore - India's Cleanest City!

Posted By laveenadiaries 11 days ago on Travel - In April 2017, I along with my family visited Indore. My husband was on a business trip for 3 days. We never wanted to miss the chance of visiting the beautiful city so we decided to accompany him. So we extended  the trip for three more days.Before I narrate our travel tale to Indore, let me bring in quick information about the city.Indreshwar Temple, IndoreIndore is a beautiful city in Madhya Pradesh, the heart of India. The city is a perfect blend of history, culture and modernity. It is also the educational hub of the state. The city got its name from Indreshwar Temple where Lord Indra is the presiding deity. Indore is the cleanest city of India in Swachh Sarvekshan Surveys.The city is also known for its seven-storey Rajwada Palace and the Lal Bagh Palace. Both date back to the 1

Agra - Memorable stay : Hotel Holiday Inn

Posted By laveenadiaries 11 days ago on Travel - Hi friends. My today's blog is a little different. By virtue of my job and also my passion for travelling and exploring new places, I get an opportunity to stay in different hotels (including 3-star to 5-star). Today I chose to write about a hotel, the stay in which was so delightful that its memories will last for a long time to come.In October 2019 we planned a ten days vacation and decided to take a journey to Indore by road. We made a route plan. Our first destination was Agra. We started our journey from Beas on 1st Oct. A little short of Delhi; we took Yamuna Expressway. We reached Agra in eight hours. We had already booked rooms in the Hotel- Holiday Inn.Facade of Hotel Holiday InnHotel Holiday InnHoliday Inn is a British-owned American brand of hotels and a subsidiary of Intercont

City of Palaces and Temples - Gwalior

Posted By laveenadiaries 12 days ago on Travel - Hello friends, let's continue with our journey (To read my previous blog Click here). After exploring the city of Taj Mahal for two days, we started for our next destination-Gwalior. Gwalior is famous for its palaces and temples.Before sharing my experience in the city, I must narrate my adventurous journey on the North-South Corridor of National Express Highway. The highway connects Agra with Mumbai, but it seems that the government neglects it. The traffic on the road was mainly of the trucks carrying heavy loads, and we hardly saw any car on the highway. There were numerous potholes on the road, and their depth could not be imagined from the driving seat. My hubby had to get down of the car repeatedly to find a little shallow pit so that he could cross it without any damage. We had to

Jaipur - Pink City

Posted By laveenadiaries 14 days ago on Travel - From Gwalior, we headed towards Indore. We enjoyed ourselves at Indore for two days (to know more about our Indore Trip CLICK HERE).On 8 October, we took our return journey to Beas via Jaipur. When it comes to tourist offerings, Jaipur has no match. I clearly remember when I first visited Jaipur in 2002 as a school trip in charge, we had to extend our trip by one more day because we had so much to see. Jaipur is a culturally and historically rich city. Seeing pink buildings all around one can easily make out why Jaipur is called Pink City or Pink Pearl. On reaching Jaipur, we checked in Hotel Souvenir Premier. After quickly inspecting our rooms we took a big fat lunch in the restaurant and planned for our activities in the two days we had in hand.Hotel Souvenir PremierHawa

The Heritage Toy Train Journey - Childhood Memoir

Posted By laveenadiaries 17 days ago on Travel - I wonder if it is natural to be nostalgic! Or is it due to the mental and emotional exhaustion invoked in us due to Covid -19 and its consequences?Do you also feel nostalgic at times! If yes, kindly share your moments of nostalgia in the comment box.One such nostalgic moment evoked by Ruskin Bond's book 'The Great Train journey' inspired me to write this blog. You must be wondering how!To explain this, let me take you to my childhood memories. I was born and brought up in the same small town Kalka which Ruskin Bond has beautifully mentioned in his book. Not only this, he also talked about the Toy Train, which happened to be the first train that I also ever saw. Still confused!Let me explain further. It was nostalgic because I also saw the train for the first time on the narrow g
