Is there something you’ve always wanted to do, but are a little scared of? Yeah, me too! Wandering around Lakeside in Pokhara, I was fascinated by the paragliders flying just above the beautiful Fewa Lake. I gazed at them dancing and swinging in the air and thought that I did not have courage to do it. I was scared of heights and I was scared of flying and yet, there I was, feeling a strong urge to experience this extreme adventure sport.

YES I made it! This year I visited The Golden Temple in Amritsar, Punjab, India. Not on purpose but there seems to be some connection between the Golden Temple, mind blowing Punjabi food and me.

Biratnagar, the industrial hub of Nepal, is a fast-paced city. At first glance, I thought I would never like this place. Bumpy roads, dusty atmosphere and polluted air— an infrastructural mess—is how I described Biratnagar initially. But the more I lived here, the more I learned about the city and its people, and my dislikes changed into likes. Today, it would not be wrong to say that unexpectedly I have fallen in love with this messy yet perfect city.
