  • Murudeshwar: Where everything seems to be massive

    Just off what was popularly known as NH -17* (Edapally- Panvel Highway, now NH- 66), around 80 kilometres south of Gokarna is another temple town, known for its Shiva temple, a humongous statue of the god, an imposing temple tower and of course, its beach. Murudeshwar. It does sound...
  • Gokarna | A temple town and beach town rolled into one charismatic zone

    Famous. Famous for its beaches. Famous for its holy sites. Famous of its international travellers. Gokarna, seems to be one of those places where everybody-who-has-heard-of-it wants to visit; and everybody who has visited it, wants to go again. For us it had been on the cards for a while....
  • Karwar: Karnataka’s picturesque northwest

    Karwar is the northernmost of port cities of Karnataka and is known for serving as a Naval base too. It lies on the north western corner of Karnataka, a few kilometres south of where the state shares a border with Goa. As such, it seemed like a good idea...

    A Tipsy-from-the-trip recommendation: Chicken Satay Pad Thai Fried Rice If you are visiting Pacifica, CA and if you like Thai Food, I suggest you try out Pacifica Thai Cuisine in between your beach-hopping. We found this restaurant on a travel app and decided to try it out as it...
  • A place to go sea glass hunting

    We know that waves wash ashore shells and weeds and a whole lot of odds and ends it may find in the middle of the sea. There’s a beach in northern California where the tides bring in what look like glass pebbles. This sea glass beach in Fort Bragg in...
  • Capitola’s own Venice

    I have to do justice to the ‘little Italy’ part of my previous post Capitola Village and its little Italy. So here’s posting some pictures of the Capitola Venetian, the Mediterranean-style hotel that I said I couldn’t take my eyes off. I haven’t given up the idea of spending...
