Haridwar and Rishikesh

So far in my North India 2015 blog series I have covered Delhi, Agra, Chandigarh, Kasauli and Amritsar. We had ended day 5 with the visit to Wagah Border and then took the train to Haridwar in Uttarkhand. On Day 6 morning of our trip we reached Haridwar. Since I went with family, I kept aside more time for temples but I did do water rafting in Rishikesh.

#LoveScotch - Party with the stars

Sangri-La Hotel, Bangalore

Every morning Bangalore Times features a few celebrities that were found partying in Bangalore and I always wondered what happens in such parties. This weekend I got to be a part of one such party that took place on World Whisky Day.

A visit to Chandigarh, Kasauli and Amritsar

Last year I took my first trip to North India. I started blogging about it once I returned but then lost track of it. I thought I could resume from where I left off last time. This was the trip where I created my own travel hashtag - #GshnyTravels that I currently use whenever I am on road enjoying everything travel has to offer.

Let me start this post by summarizing what I have already blogged about. Mom, bro and I started our 10 day trip by flying from Bangalore to Delhi by an early morning flight. We had booked a cab which picked us up at the airport and took us sightseeing around Delhi where we covered Qutub Minar, Lotus temple, Delhi Haat, India Gate and Akshardham. The next morning we head out to Agra via the Yamuna Expressway to reach Taj Mahal and post lunch we headed out to Fatehpur Sikri where we visited the Akbars palace and Durgah. We reached back in Delhi at midnight. I have written 3 blogs detailing the events of first 2 days of that trip. In this blog I will cover the next 3 days.
