2017 was an incredible year in travel for me. My tinkering toes took me on fun adventures, solo trips, and food and wine journeys throughout the year – from visiting India’s first book village to river rafting in the mighty Ganges. I plan to make this year all the more exciting in terms of travel experiences. Here’s looking at you, 2018!
I shall travel Bihar more extensively
Having spent two decades of my life in Patna, I haven’t made good use of the time. I went to Rajgir and explored Nalanda just last year. I’m not proud of all this and hence I want to travel my home town and the state more extensively and learn the stories of my origin firsthand. Also, I literally stay a roadtrip away from Nepal and I still haven’t set foot in that beautiful country. I’d like to change that this year!
I shall eat/drink local whenever I visit a new place – India or abroad
No KFCs or McDonald’s yo! Promise. Here’s to saying yes to local food, fresh produce, and gulping down all kinds of local beers and wines.
I shall be more open to culinary experiments
Time to try ’em oysters (and more)! Snake wine? 2019 resolution, maybe?
I shall explore the North East
It would be an understatement if I said that I’m absolutely smitten by the beauty and culture of the north eastern states of our country. Sadly, I have not travelled to any of the seven sisters yet. And I promise to change that this year.
I shall maintain a journal and send postcards from my travels
It gives me so much joy. I wonder why I don’t do this regularly! (eye-roll)
I shall watch more sunrises and chase more sunsets
