The Hunt For Matilda

India is very well connected by trains (in fact one of the best train networks in the world), state transport buses and rickshaws. But when it was time to decide how I would be travelling the country, I wanted something that would give me the freedom to take any road I want whenever I wanted.

A two wheeler was an obvious choice but the idea of travelling with luggage didn’t appeal to me. Then there is the risk factor that comes with a bike along with all the coolness and adventure. After looking into various four wheeler options I decided that I wanted a Bolero. A 3 day trip in a friends Bolero to Manipal in March 2013 confirmed my choice.

50 Shades of Letting Go

Last April I set out on a journey without having any plans on when to return or where to go to. I was dealing with some stuff and wanted an escape. A journey that was soon to become the best trip of my life (so far). Little did I know at that time.

It all started in my 6th grade when this guy, Aswin A. Mohan came into my school and found a place right in front of me. We clicked. We got the same scoldings from our teachers and if we are ever asked to write an essay on “A day to remember from your school life”, I am pretty sure we both would have the same story to say.

130 Kms of Cycling: Perfect End for an Awesome Year!

I loved cycling since my school days, I used to go long distances right when I had my first bicycle, well at that time a 4 km trip around the town seemed long and there was the thrill of breaking the rule set by parents which stated that the town was off limits for me 😛

When I was in high school I used to do 15 km spells now and then and last March I brought my bicycle to Cochin doing an awesome 38.7 kilometres in 2 hours. I wasn’t hoping to see me up and walking the next day, but surprisingly 39 kms didn’t touch me anywhere. I wanted more.

2011 was an awesome year for me, and I wanted to do something legendary to end the year and cycling challenge topped my list. So this 31st, me and my friend Tison Philip, we decided to go cycling to a city called Alleppey.

From Indonesia with Love

The title might give you a sense that I am writing this from Indonesia, but no, its been a while (actually a long while, getting back to life after the vacation took much more than I thought) since I came back home. Now that gives you the idea that I have been to Indonesia.

Obvious Questions:

Why did you go?
Indonesian Flag in BaliWell, in Airport Customs Terms, Purpose of visit was a social visit. Meeting Friends and leisure. It was on my new year resolution this year to Get my Passport and to use it. I had been trying to get a Passport since I was 18, but each time I would give up since I had some complication in my address. But this time I did it!

Why Indonesia?
I don’t know if its me or them, but the friends I have from Indonesia seem to stick. I have made friends from various parts of the world, but most of them never stayed. Visiting Indonesia was in my Bucket List and hence it was my first choice. (Nah, you know I am lying 😉

And how long did you stay?
12 days. Reached Jakarta on 11th August. Visited Jakarta, Bali and Bandung. Returned from Jakarta on 23rd August.

Day out in Trivandrum!

When I was in school, I rarely went for the field trips. I hated it those days. One of the locations of choice during those days was Trivandrum, the capital city of my state (kerala).

Somehow, I wanted to see the city. I have had many chances to go there, but it never happened, so when I had to go there for some paper-work for my start-up, I made it a point to go out and see the city.
