We had heard a lot about Hyderabad’s culinary heritage but didn’t have a local contact to help us discover the hidden treasures. We took to social media for suggestions on-the-go using our swift Airtel 4G. From unknown monuments of the Nizam’s era and one-of-a-kind ice cream parlours to inspiring stories of overcoming all obstacles, we discovered Hyderabad through the eyes of the “virtual” locals.
Dibru Saikhowa Wildlife Sanctuary had caught our attention since the time we decided to make our first trip to Northeast India. We were looking at the map to get an idea of the places we could visit and this piece of land in the middle of what looked like the mighty Brahmaputra looked intriguing. That it was a wildlife sanctuary meant that we had to visit it.
A bicycle had been my trusted childhood companion but as time went on I let go of that habit. Cycling became a sport I only observed from the outside. It came back into my life when we took short cycling trips in our travels. The spark to cycle long distance was reignited.
Agreed that cities can not provide the allure of nature. But what cities have in abundance are people. Which means opportunities to make new friends and make a special travel memory. City travel is the perfect starting point to understand the pulse of a new place and ease into a new culture.
