Finally, the husband and I found time to take the much needed break and travel to Thailand, something we have even planning for almost a year now. As always all the travel plans were made lat minute. We picked the cities we wanted to visit and took off for the airport... All hotel bookings would have to be done once we arrive at the destinations... And off we went! Mumbai to Bangkok and a connecting flight to Surat Thani, a small non touristy stop over town where we were to spend our first night in Thailand. But thanks to the wonderful locals and three amazing fellow travellers we met in the town, it turned out to be the bet night we spent in the country...the Tapei river which flows through the town was the hub for local skate boarders and tattoo artists and we spent the night chit chatting and drinking local rum...

I was recently invited to attend the Influencer Conference that happened in Mumbai. Among other things I was excited to attend the conference since it was being hosted at Kitab Mahal, Fort, an area I'm always happy to visit. The conference itself was underwhelming but the visit to 'town' was worth it.
Kitab Mahal is an ancient, almost dilapidated building which houses Studio X on the top floor. Studio X is a space that can be rented by individuals, organisations and artists to host events. And this was to be the venue of the Influencer Con.
While Studio X is neatly white washed and well maintained the building's other floors where rustically rotten, compelling me to click.. A few shots below..

Mumbai is always a buzz with the shopping fever but around festivals it seems to reach a feverish pitch. We went around looking for some everyday stuff for home an discovered a beautiful cart full of lotuses at the local mall.. Pleasant surprise :)

Mumbai to Jawhar or Jawahar is a distance of about 146 kms and takes around 2 hrs by road.. the route passes through Manor on NH8 and then SH33 straight to Jawhar..the roads are well maintained and the views are great.. we went in early march and though it was all green, it was a tad dry.. a good time to go would be during the monsoons or just after.. however the drive was fun and we had a good time, stopping along the way clicking photos..

a recent trip to neemuch, in mp for a cousins wedding was the much needed short weekend break i wanted for a while... train travel was at its fascinating best on this route.. so many beautiful isolated train stations.. just the absence of a hoard of people pushing and shoving each other..made even the simplest of objects seem like thoughtfully placed artifacts to me :)
