SERIES 3 – aEsTHeTiC aVeNuEs; TOPIC 5 – Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada

 Hey guysss, hope you all are staying safe and healthy. Whether we like it or not, we know that there won’t be any travelling for everyone over the next few months. Thanks to the internet along with tourist reviews, that even without travelling to these places myself, I have attempted to give you a virtual travel experience of some of the most beautiful, aesthetic places on Earth and will continue to do the same during the next few weeks. Enjoy!

Welcome to Lake Louise.

The Emerald Lake, now popularly known as Lake Louise, renamed to honour Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, daughter of Queen Victoria, is the most picturesque Lake in the Canadian Rockies. With its beautiful turquoise waters, this world-famous Lake is 230 feet deep and extremely cold throughout the year. Only a few species of fish can survive due to the freezing temperatures underwater, and those that survive can only do so for a few years. The surrounding thick pine forests, high, snowy mountains, a clear sky, perfectly blend into its scenic essence. 

Many of us might have seen this painstakingly stunning destination on postcards or calendars. The most relaxed and most enjoyable route to get to Lake Louise, Alberta, is via the longest road, i.e., the 8000km long trans-Canada highway. It is incredibly close to the Lake, and you may even get to see a grizzly bear on your way! Complementing the already charismatic Lake and providing a quintessential backdrop is the majestic Victoria Glacier. This one of the most photographed glaciers is responsible for the creation of Lake Louise, a task that started around 10,000 years ago and continues.

The best hotel here(according to me) is, “Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise”, which provides excellent views along with luxurious comfort. Breathtaking panoramic views of Lake Louise and the Victoria Glacier from your room are there for you to admire all day. This natural wonder needs a lot of cherishing and praising, best served by the tourists staying at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. However, “Deer Lodge”, closest to the Lake, is another beautiful resort here. It is a quiet retreat that takes you back to historical eras with its rustic beauty and antique architecture. It also offers captivating views of the Lake and Glacier in unimaginable ways. These are the two main destinations of stay, which caught my attention; But, Lake Louise has many more chic and elegant resorts and hotels that warmly welcome tourists.

Summer in Lake Louise: June-October is when Lake Louise gets the most visitors. It is the busiest around this time due to the apparent reason of relatively comfortable temperatures. The maximum temperature of the atmosphere during summer is around 18-20°C. However, the lake-water stays at 4°C(maximum). The most popular summer activity is canoeing. Canoeing through the irresistible, mighty mountain peaks, while fawning over the turquoise hues seems pretty thrilling. Lake Louise and all the natural land nearby is gifted with some of the most adventurous, alluring trails. Click HERE to find some exhilarating hikes, long and short, having some of the most enchanting views. Even though I haven’t personally been there, my favourite is the “Plain of Six Glaciers Hike” through research. 

Winter in Lake Louise: The sun generally sets before 5 pm during November-May, the lowest atmospheric temperature is about -20°C, and hence the crowd during winter is comparatively less. Lake Louise is frozen during most winter and is an excellent opportunity to go ice skating with your partner(cute date;)), or kids, or have a great laugh with friends. This place is home to one of the world’s best ski resorts, the “Lake Louise Ski Resort”. Outdoor lovers should not miss this electrifying opportunity to go skiing and snowboarding at one of the finest. Other than that, we can’t forget the highly dramatic experience of snowshoeing or tobogganing or dog sledding through the rugged mountain peaks, glaciers, and a breathtaking frozen lake! If you visit Lake Louise towards the end of January or beginning of February, you might be able to revel in the magnificent Ice Magic Festival. Ice sculptors/carvers participate and create fascinating ice carvings for you to stare at in disbelief.

SERIES 3 – aEsTHeTiC aVeNuEs; TOPIC 4 – The Northern Lights (Part 2)

Hey guysss, hope you all are staying safe and healthy. Whether we like it or not, we know that there won’t be any travelling for everyone over the next few months. Thanks to the internet along with tourist reviews, that even without travelling to these places myself, I have attempted to give you a virtual travel experience of some of the most beautiful, aesthetic places on Earth and will continue to do the same during the next few weeks.

Continued from Part 1 ~

  • Russia-  

Северное сияние россии (Pronounced as- Severnoye siyaniye rossii) (Northern Lights of Russia)

The location of Russia has worked for the benefit of Northern Lights viewing since the Arctic Circle passes through half the country. The entire Kola Peninsula is a splendid and prime location for admiring the beauty of the dancing lights. Murmansk in the Kola Peninsula has over 40 days of continuous night and hence is ideal for viewing these Lights. Murmansk is also the World’s largest city above the Arctic Circle! The sky above the Khibiny Mountains in the Kola Peninsula beams and shines brightly with the colourful Aurora Borealis. Frozen lakes, waterfalls, snow-covered peaks, all add to the picturesque destination. This area is easily accessible and can be travelled in snowmobiles. In the heart of the Russian North, Arkhangelsk, the Lights become brighter as you move away from the more populated areas. This region is also home to Severodvinsk city which has magnificent wooden architecture and ruins, that compliment the awe-inspiring phenomenon. If you want to enjoy the preserved Nenets culture, their myths, legends, some interesting theories about the Lights along with relishing in them, then go on a journey to Naryan-Mar. It is unique and pleasant. A combination of roaming reindeers in snow and the shimmering Northern Lights seem to be a part of a fairytale book. Novaya Zemlya, one of the most extreme locations, makes this once-in-a-lifetime experience possible. Taimyr, “the edge of the cold”, the “land of rare Northern Lights”, has 285 days of winter, north of this peninsula. The Northern Lights here comprise of almost every colour of the rainbow. Stunning streaks of orange, yellow, pink, purple, green will be seen like a mesmerizing painting. Another such city is Salekhard in the Yamal region. Those long, dark, never-ending nights have multi-coloured Aurora Borealis as rays of hope. Ironically, the local Nenets call it “Nger Harp” – “the light of the dead”. The low temperatures of the Yamal Peninsula are worth staying in not just for the extraordinary Lights but also for taking part in Northern Nomads’ lifestyle, experiencing their ancient culture. Locals of the city of Vorkuta say that towards North Vorkuta, the Aurora can be seen even in the summer. However, during winter, they can be seen in the morning, afternoon, and evening as well with flamboyant green, red, white designs in the sky.

  • Northern Canada– 

Northern Lights of Canada

Northern Canada has some of the most spectacular sightings of Aurora Borealis due to its latitude of 65.8° North and minimal light pollution. 64.2823° N- This location of Yukon territory has secured its position on the list of the World’s best places to see the Northern Lights. In this territory, the city of Whitehorse keeps in mind both a tourist’s comfort and perfect Aurora viewing destination. Whitehorse has the best Northern Lights hotels in all of Canada. Most have majestic Chalets with huge glass windows to adore the Aurora Borealis peacefully in the warmth of your cozy Chalet. The Northwest Territories lie in the Auroral Zone. Its capital, Yellowknife, is one of the most famous places to enjoy the graceful Lights due to its flat landscape and cloudless skies. The remote dwelling of Tujtoyaktuk, also a part of these territories, will guarantee you some splendid, heavenly show of the Lights. There are waves and lines of purple, red, green, and all very bright its an incredibly alluring experience. Another remote territory of the Arctic is the Nunavut Territory. In its capital, Iqaluit on Baffin Island, you’ll have a beautiful, snowy backdrop and the Aurora Borealis enveloping you. If you love an eerie silence and are a fan of chilly weather, this is the place for your escapade as it is the most deserted place for viewing the Lights. Take a long trek to the viewpoint in Churchill, Manitoba, located just below the Auroral Oval, to get an ogle-worthy sight of the Lights(one of the best). You may even be lucky enough to meet a cuddly polar bear, too! Head to the Canadian Rockies and admire the Northern Lights with complementary city lights, gorgeous mountain ranges, and a starry night. The two most photogenic landscape views will be achievable at Banff National Park and Jasper National Park. Near the research centre of Aurora Borealis, the Athabasca University Geophysical Observatory, Alberta lies an ethereal trail. An unreal, utopian forest is a part of this trail, so is the Athabaska River. Use cross-country skis to travel around or take a stroll and savour its beauty as the Lights hover over you. Lake Superior, Ontario, has a vast region of water on one side. Its north shore gives an elegant awe-filled background to the Lights. The scenic Gulf Shore Parkway at Prince Edward Island has minimum light pollution, low population, haunting dark skies, open views of the sky. You can just take a drive gazing skyward, or stop at Covehead Lighthouse and capture the graceful Aurora Borealis.

Cheers !!

  • Greenland– 

This sentence is in Danish, I could not find an English to Greenlandic (one of the official languages of Greenland along with Danish) translator sorry!!

Nordlys i Grønland (Northern Lights of Greenland)

At the World’s Largest Island, the Northern Lights are best seen on a dark, cloud-free autumn/winter night. The locals compare it to fluttering yellow-green curtains. Greenland is an ideal location since it is mostly uninhabited. Kangerlussuaq is one such location with clear skies and a low population. It is popular among tourists, primarily due to the marvelous views from the top of the Greenland Ice Cap. Greenland Ice Cap covers 80% of the country and is easily accessible from Kangerlussuaq. It is known for giving the World’s most magnificent view of the Aurora Borealis. The comfort of the second largest city, Sisimiut, is best for wanderers. Visit the outskirts of this town, and according to the accurate forecast time, you can easily see the Northern Lights. The enormous UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ilulissat Icefjord, will render you speechless. Now imagine that, combined with the phenomenal Northern Lights, would be a magical sight to behold. An icy bluish-green shade takes over the entire sky, and it’s an exquisite circumstance. The small village of Kulusuk, enriched in Greenland’s history, will let you see the Lights while hiking, dog-sledding, and fishing among many activities. The 250 people there are sure to provide a warm, hearty welcome. Lastly, the city of Tasiilaq on the eastern coast of Greenland is undoubtedly for adventure-lovers. Partaking in Greenland’s incredible outdoor adventures while also looking at an abstract painting come to life is the thrill an adventurous person seeks. 

Skål !! (Cheers !!)

SERIES 3 – aEsTHeTiC aVeNuEs; TOPIC 3- Whitehaven Beach, Australia

Hey guysss, hope you all are staying safe and healthy. Whether we like it or not, we know that there won’t be any travelling for everyone over the next few months. Thanks to the internet along with tourist reviews, that even without travelling to these places myself, I have attempted to give you a virtual travel experience of some of the most beautiful, aesthetic places on Earth and will continue to do the same during the next few weeks. Enjoy!

Welcome to Whitehaven Beach, Queensland, Australia.

Whitehaven Beach is a 7km long stretch, the largest of the most beautiful island group of Australia, i.e., the majestic Whitsundays. This beach got its name from the fact that the sand here is made from 98.9% pure silica and does not retain heat at all, hence, soft, delicate, and, of course, a heart-flattering white. The portrayal of nature at its most untouched, most original form, made it a safe haven. Pure silica sand has accumulated at the beach due to continuous sea currents over millions of years. You can take a comfortable stroll with the sun right above, not feel like your feet are on fire while enjoying the beauty of those swirling, turquoise waters.

Doesn’t it feel unearthly and maybe like Paradise? 

You can reach this island either by a boat(speedboat), as part of a cruise, through ocean rafting, or a helicopter. There are two routes to arrive here: from Airlie Beach and from Hamilton Island. One of the best features about Whitehaven is that it has absolutely no shops, no restaurants, nothing to disturb an unreal, recluse visit. So don’t forget to pack plenty of food and water from Hamilton Island. 

There are different means of relishing the breathtaking, most photographed beach of Australia. Walk hand in hand, feel the sea and sand at once at the shallow shoreline of Whitehaven. Experience it the lavish way as you get a royalty like treatment on a Catamaran cruise or in the privacy of a boat or yacht. Get on the seaplane to get the best of both worlds- the aerial view and interacting with its underwater world as it glides through the water surface. Hop on a helicopter if you’re not afraid of heights to see an abstract painting come to life as the white sand swirls with the blue sea with a picturesque view of corals. Photography lovers are going to cherish hiking up Hill Inlet to reach the Tongue Point and capture land meeting endless water.

It’s lovely, isn’t it? 

Moving onto the essential, and my favourite- the water activities. Whitehaven Beach allows you to sail or jet ski through its waters to interact with marine life, from turtles to dolphins. The most exciting part is the wave from mighty humpback whales, which are spotted during the colder season. As you snorkel, make sure to snap a selfie with the turtles. The Whitehaven underwater-world belongs to the famous Great Barrier Reef. Diving deep welcomes you into ‘a whole new world’ of corals and picture-perfect reefs. It’s easy and entirely comfortable to swim here as there are no large waves or rip tides. Have the time of your life, swim, and scuba-dive with sleek manta rays, rare but dangerous saltwater crocodiles, along with a plethora of cute little tropical fish. Manta rays, for the most part, are friendly to humans and won’t mind if you capture their smooth, graceful movements. 

After a tiring trip, you finally get to relax and rejuvenate on the beach, admiring the forest scenery as you meet and greet a Goanna or the Lace Monitor Lizard while listening to the chirping of small Asian Geckos. (let’s just ignore the presence of slimy, wet green tree frogs and cane toads;))

SERIES 3 – aEsTHeTiC aVeNuEs; TOPIC 2- Colourful Streets Of Istanbul,Turkey

Hey guysss, hope you all are staying safe and healthy. Whether we like it or not, we know that there won’t be any travelling for everyone over the next few months. Thanks to the internet along with tourist reviews, that even without travelling to these places myself, I have attempted to give you a virtual travel experience of some of the most beautiful, aesthetic places on Earth and will continue to do the same during the next few weeks. Enjoy!

İstanbul’un renkli sokaklarına hoş geldiniz.(Welcome to the colourful streets of Istanbul)

First, let me make you familiar with Istanbul. Istanbul is one of the most culturally and historically rich cities in Turkey and is the most populous. It is home to the majestic Bosphorus strait which divides the two major continents, Europe and Asia. Apart from the delicious treats, splendid, detailed architecture, and the welcoming nature of the natives, Istanbul has some hidden avenues that are going to attract you the most.

Let me introduce you to the most colourful district of Istanbul. Balat district lies on the European side of the city and is an abode to mesmerizing, colourful streets and aesthetic, cozy multi-coloured houses. These places are hidden, maybe cowering away between two shops, hoping someone greets them with their presence. You’ll have to see carefully as you walk through a neighbourhood where history meets hipster.

This will turn out to be a once in a lifetime experience where you are in a Narnia like situation as you climb up the rainbow steps and enter a world where each wall is unique. Exquisite street art with graffiti, modern, eclectic pastel-colored bohemian cafes, vintage-styled local shops, and cute, vibrant homes will warmly welcome you to over a 200-year-old dwelling. Festive season greets you with simple yet flamboyant umbrella decoration.

It resides Jewish, Greek Orthodox, and a few Armenian communities and was previously called the Jewish quarter. This will let you explore magnificent synagogues, churches, and architecturally well-defined schools. Don’t forget to begin your day with a fulfilling Turkish breakfast which includes tomatoes, cucumbers, bread, and your eggs just how you’d like, with many other things. Cooklife Balat, Balatkapi cafe are two of the most famous cafes for breakfast. Wait your day isn’t over yet! Go grab a relaxing dinner with their staple dish lahmacun, best kebabs, Turkish pizza, baklava for dessert at Forno restaurant, and many other mouth-watering eateries.

After spending an entire day or two in Balat, visit the streets of Fener district right behind it. Their beauty lies in wooden, old houses, sidewalk bistros, age-old churches like the Church of St. George, mosques, and the multicultural Phanar Greek Orthodox College. After a tiring day of mind-blowing sight-seeing, go to a meyhane in the Fener neighbourhood to relax with alcohol and some meze right before a delicious meal. Beyoglu district has some of the best meyhanes however, Fener has quite a few good ones too. At the end of the day, as you walk into your hotel room, jump on your bed and get cozy under the sheets listening to the city chaos lulling you to sleep with promises of dreams about a fascinating trip.

So, put on your most comfortable shoes to embrace this steep-sloped journey of walking, clicking, dining, and admiring.

Şerefe !! (Cheers!!)

Καλώς ήλθατε στη Σαντορίνη(Welcome to Santorini), the most insanely beautiful island of the Cyclades(a group of islands in the Aegean Sea), crafted naturally and built above an underwater caldera(crater) as a result of the 16th century B.C. volcanic eruption.

SERIES 1- tRAveLleR tAleS ; TOPIC 4-Varanasi

(Visited in May’19)

Varanasi or Banaras or Benares or Kashi, along the banks of the Holy Ganges, is home to Hindus, Buddhists and, Muslims. It is one of the oldest cities, supposedly found 5000 years back, well-known for its “gallis”(narrow lanes).
Our first day was spent exploring the creators behind the gorgeous and intricate “banarasi” textiles, popularly known as “brocades”. I was stunned to witness the hard work, effort, patience and, meticulous craftsmanship of the artisans who took nearly a month to weave a single saree. One’s wardrobe seems incomplete without one of these exquisite pieces.
Later that evening, we got an opportunity to explore the banks of River Ganga on the newly started Alaknanda Cruise. We saw all of the 84 beautiful ghats, each with its own significance. The ghats that caught my attention the most were:

  1. Dashaswamedh Ghat- The main ghat where the extravagant and mesmerizing Ganga Aarti is carried out and we were amazed to see it from the cruise boat.
  2. Gaay Ghat-This is the ghat where people bathe to wash away their sins, generally the sin of killing a cow.
  3. Manikarnika and Harishchandra Ghats- These two are the cremation ghats, a place where the auspicious rituals are carried out as the ashes of the departed are devoted to the Holy River. The irony here is that a single place is chosen to perform a ritual for a new beginning and also the last rites of an individual.

The next day we drove amidst the heavy, common traffic to Dashaswamedh Ghat to visit one of the 8 “jyotirlingas”, that is the Kashi Vishwanath Temple, where all honest prayers are answered. The strong positive energy of this place can be felt by each pilgrim. It also gives a beautiful view of the Ganges. Nearby lies the temple of the Goddess of grains, “Annapurna Ma”.
As the evening passed by, our excitement to watch the enigmatic Ganga Aarti increased.
We were lucky to get a seat close to the Pandits performing the evening Aarti. The Aarti began with the blowing of the “Shankha”, whose melodious sound uplifted the whole atmosphere. Then the smoke of the “dhoop” seemed to purify the air surrounding the ghat. This was followed by the lighting of 108 “diyas” on a single, brass lamp and the soothing sound of ringing bells, marking the beginning of the main Aarti. The most eye-catching and fascinating moment was when the Pandits carried out the Aarti in complete sync. Around 50,000 people, from different states and countries, were gathered to witness this moment and offer their prayers to the Ganges. We were left enchanted by the spell this ritual cast on us.
The trip to Kashi is incomplete without visiting the Kaal Bhairav temple to take the blessings which would protect us from the evils of the world. The next day was spent exploring the museum of Sarnath which provided us with vast knowledge about the history of Gautama Buddha. The museum is filled with beautiful sculpted relics and antiques, associated with Buddhism. Sarnath is also the place of the first commemorative “stupa” built for Buddha. It is home to the ruins of the first few monasteries, which is indeed a sight to see along with a 121ft. tall marvelous Buddha statue.
Remember to savour the delicacies offered by this city, like the “Banarasi puri and bhaji”, the “chatpatti khaasta kachori”, “Banarasi pan”, the sweet and delicious “kulhad (earthen glass) lassi” and tea.
Oh! and also, don’t forget to take home the mouth-watering “aloo ke papad” and “achaar (pickle)”. 😉

SERIES 1- tRAveLleR tAleS ; TOPIC 3-Dubai

(Visited in Mar’2016)

Welcome to Dubai, the city of flamboyance, the city of the rich. This city is one of the most developed cities in the world, with its high skyscrapers and shining cars across clean, solid roads.
Beginning with the most predictable and wondrous location, the Burj Khalifa. The cloud touching building consisting of 163 floors is the tallest skyscraper in the world. The modern interiors, the digital floor-displaying lift, exquisitely built glass front and the marvelous view from its 125th floor is a sight that would be etched in your memory for a lifetime.
Not to miss out on the longest fountain in the world located right next to this landscape, it looks beautiful from the top of The Burj and even more appealing while standing in front of it. The synchronized beats of the music along with the rise of water is an alluring view for the eye.
Located right beside these two wonders is one of the largest malls in the world(yep it’s hugeeeee!), i.e The Dubai Mall. This posh mall of extravagance is home to nearly every national and international brand known. As soon as we entered, we were met with stores like Chanel, Vero Moda, Forever 21, Gucci, Prada, H&M, and many more lined up on all sides of it.
Two of Dubai’s famous gardens are the flower garden and the butterfly garden. However, at the time of our visit, the butterfly garden was closed so we had visited the flower garden. Soon, the air we breathed was filled with the pleasant aroma of the flowers all at once. The place could be compared to heaven as we looked at all the beautiful flowers and structures like the peacock, clock, heart, etc. made using this God’s gift.
Our day came to the perfect end as we had a movie-like dinner on The Dubai Marina river cruise while gazing at the beauty of the illuminated city.
Then comes the well-known desert safari. Before we rode on the jeep to reach the desert, strangely, the tires of the jeep were deflated a little. All hell broke loose after that! It was like a roller coaster when we glided through the sand dunes of the breezy desert. The evening meal was filled with the delicious Mediterranean food, drinks, music, and the belly, Arabic Tanoura dance to entertain us as the cold desert winds blew.
Last but not least, the unbelievable palm island along with the huge Atlantis, The Palm is a must-visit destination. Located on the crescent of the largest man-made island, The Palm, Atlantis is a marvel of its own.
From the amazingly delicious Cold Stone ice-cream to the informative aquarium, Atlantis does not disappoint. Lastly taking the journey through the palm island on a monorail is the most favourite part of this trip for me. The site from the monorail was mesmerizing as we passed each branch of the palm island.
So go visit this city that never settles for anything less than first place.

This Heaven On Earth is a destination you wouldn’t want to miss. With its small towns, lakes, hills, and mountains, it never fails to amaze. This posh country is famous for its watches and chocolates that are sold worldwide.
Bern, one of the most beautiful cities at night, makes people look at it in wonder.

The view of glimmering lights at night from its Dalmazibrucke bridge is no less than bright stars in the night sky.
I am sure most of you love chocolate or at least like it. Broc, a small town in Switzerland is home to the factory outlet of one of the most famous chocolate selling brands in the world i.e The Maison Callier, Nestle Chocolate Factory. When Maison Callier opens its factory doors for you, the aroma of chocolate and glorious sight makes a person feel like it has come straight out of a fantasy book.
The sparkling water of Lake Lucerne is an eye-catching location with its cruise as it takes you around the city, displaying its beauties and historic structures. One of which is the “Crying Lion” or the “Lion Monument” who cries out the victory tales of immortal warriors.
Being at the Top of Europe is like being on top of the world. Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe (located in Engelberg), with its chilly weather, snow-covered peak and the awe-filled view of the other mountains makes your soul feel complete.
The tiring hike of Mount Pilatus is worth the effort when the refreshing air at the top and the view of City Interlaken rejuvenates one. Interlaken – a city between two lakes is home to the statue of our famous Indian film-maker Yash Chopra! I assure you that Switzerland, the Heart of Europe is bound to stun you.

(Visited in Nov’18)

What was the first thing that came to your mind when you read the word Paris? A dream destination? Couple’s paradise? Fashion capital?
It is all those things and so much more…
One of the most historic and famous monuments of the city is the Eiffel Tower standing tall in all its glory. The iron pillar, being the most visited location, it oozes confidence, strength and makes people look up to its stature. Its beauty multiplies when looked at from the mighty cruise of Seine River with its dancing waters and beautiful scenery by its sides. The feeling is overwhelming while being up there. The anxious wait to go reach the top and then the extravagance glorifies when one looks at the large city turn tiny, looking at the symmetrical houses and structures.
The tales of the victorious Arc de Triomphe haven’t been unheard. Standing in all its might, it also has a proud story to tell. Apart from these places, there’s the glorious Lovre Museum along with the Cathedral and its religious visitors.
The city is also home to delicious coffees, homely-cozy cafes, and diners that look like they have directly come out of a fantasy. (Ps – They are actually very comfortable and cute!).
Walking across the Champs- Elysees, looking at all those different people, has always been a sight of wonder. Locals with their iconic fashion looks and couture, couples walking hand-in-hand fascinated and locking their love in each other’s hearts.Different people having different stories, different cultures, different destinations, all residing or visiting and mesmerized by this one place, Paris- the city of love.
