The Women’s History Month post that we put up two weeks ago awakened something in us. While coming up with ideas for it, we were filled with a refreshed appreciation for what a trip with the girls can do to your mental health, how free and rejuvenated you return feeling.

Too much of our lives are spent being “protected” by the men around us from the men around us. Our friends and family mean well, of course they do, but that doesn’t make being policed 24/7 any easier. …

Women’s Day is always an interesting time of the year. On the one hand, it’s so important to really think about and appreciate the strong women in our lives, the determined tour de forces that get shit done without a hue and cry. There’s no doubt that women run the world — and if you don’t believe us, we’ve got Beyoncé on the line to convince you!

The flip side is that women aren’t given nearly enough respect on any of the OTHER days of the year. Things are slowly improving though, and the recently announced Women’s History Month…

Valentine’s Day might have just passed us by but that doesn’t mean the romance has to end!

Arunachal Pradesh is the place to be for those who want to keep the festivities going, even for just a little bit longer. After all, it’s called the “Orchid State of India,” and nothing says romance like a Bollywood-style romp through a field of flowers.

Apart from being ridiculously romantic (have you SEEN the lakes…

Meghalaya’s upcoming Strawberry Festival, a Valentine’s-centric extravaganza that’s right up your alley if you’ve got a sweet tooth, is a lovely introduction to the state.

If you can’t travel in time for the festival, read all about the activities that await and plan your trip. …


This last year hasn’t exactly been a picnic for most of us, and a restorative holiday with the one you love is just what the doctor’s ordered. However, with the pandemic still underway, it’s easy enough to convince yourself that fun is out of the question in 2021. That sitting at home with a movie (that you’ve “only” watched three times before) counts as a big enough celebration.

Thankfully, you couldn’t be more wrong.

While clubs and dance halls are strictly out of the question, who says that’s the only way to have a good time?

The waning year comes with an odd sense of serenity this year. In midnight hot chocolates and woven, handed down shawls we’re all finding a pocket of comfort. A pocket of hope that the new year will bring with it new beginnings and new chances.

2020 had its mega share of downs, but we try to focus on the few ups that kept us afloat. And it is the same focus we’re infusing our celebrations with as we get ready to welcome 2021.

A fresh start can sometimes mean a fresh place, too! We’ve all spent a good chunk of…


Becoming a planet positive human is something many of us are striving towards. Even as a company, we’ve always maintained that our decisions, our marketing, our stays will always be those that support the environment and local businesses. Many of our guests are like that, too. People who have the means to make decisions and afford more sustainable and eco friendly options.

But the meaning of eco-friendly is changing in the COVID world. There have been positives, of course. Stories of waters becoming clearer, air becoming nicer. …


Slow and steady, not unlike the tortoise, travel is starting up again. We’ve all spent the past few months exploring our souls — so why not explore the soul of India?

The travel industry can come up with plan B, C, and D during the pandemic. But we have no PLANET B. It’s time to start travelling local, supporting local, and sustaining local.

Everyone knows India is diverse — from the local chaiwala to the global citizen backpacker. Corners steeped in superstitions, immersions of various cultures and traditions. …


If you suffer from anxiety, then travel is a fun little Rubik’s Cube to solve. As a passionate traveler, nothing gets me feeling more lighthearted and comfortable than the idea of visiting a new place, daydreaming on a train or airplane, or even finding the perfectly neat way to pack my bag.

At the same time, as someone who has a little voice in her head telling her that everything that can go wrong, will go wrong, there’s a foreboding that threatens to mar the edges of every new memory I make. The fear of losing something, hurting myself, people…
