I am a big foodie! If the number of food reviews on my blog and the constant food posts on all my social media handles does not prove it then I don’t know what will. I can eat food anytime and anywhere, especially if the food is my favourite. But some days I just don’t feel it. I wake up in the morning and conveniently start my day directly with lunch not even realizing that I missed the most important meal of the day! Reason? Maybe I woke up late, I had an early morning work skype call or I was caught up with submissions. The food that mom cooked was just not appealing enough for me and I had no time to get something together for myself.
Confusing title? Pune is nothing close to cold at the moment! The constant waves of heat in the air through the day and into the night make us literally want to kill someone. What can make it better? A dip in a swimming pool? 24 hours of air-conditioning? Or simply giving up on food since it is too hot to even eat? Being a foodie, giving up on food is not an option for me, but I surely am picky about what I want to eat and when. And this season, the only thing that truly managed to fill my heart with delight is ice-cream from the newly opened Minus 301 Fahrenheit in Viman Nagar! (apart from homemade aamras, of course!)
Mcleod Ganj is a small and pretty town located in Dharamshala! They say it has lost its charm in recent years; the weather is not as great as it used to be and commercialization of the town has taken a toll on the natural beauty and scenery it once boasted of. For me, it was still one of the prettiest locations on the trip! In my recent backpacking trip to Himachal Pradesh with The Land Out There, it was the first place that we hit. Views of the snow-clad mountains of the Himalayan ranges and walking on pavements along the deep valleys is what our two-day stay in this town consisted of.
