TWD Travomance

A drive that changed our lives – Recalling Times Women’s Drive on International Women’s Day!

If we must celebrate a day for women, let us celebrate freedom from stereotypes, from expectations, from idolisation, from sacrifices!
Sharing my life altering experience -Times Womens Drive (TWD) the world’s largest car rally involving 1,350 women, who drove to Goa from Mumbai, Pune and Bengaluru, to celebrate the spirit of womanhood just ahead of International Womens Day, last year. Together for a common cause and passion for driving, the flag-off saw some enchanting display of four-wheel beauties decked with social messages on awareness related to breast cancer!

Let her be imperfect, whimsical, irresponsible, boorish, lazy, fierce, opinionated, loud, flabby, unkempt, adventurous, unpredictable, unprepared, impractical!

TravoMance in Sarahan-Kinnaur 0

Kinnaur Trails : Sarahan

If you like your holidays packed and pompous then Sarahan won’t appeal much. If you like your holidays where you can aimlessly stroll for hours with the enchanting mountains for company, you wake up to them, you would fall in love with Soothing Sarahan.
From Kalka one has the option to halt at Simla and proceed straight to Reckong Peo closer to Kalpa (Kinnaur’s main destination), instead we give the touristy Simla a miss and head to Sarahan (Again our kind of thing – city to city is boring, city to wilderness and vice versa, interesting 😉 )
