Two cities that are basically required when one travels to India, the first for need & the latter for want. Neither city is one we’d suggest with any eagerness but more the shrugged “yeah you have to do it”. Luckily, neither require your attention for very long & it’s incredibly easy to bounce back & forth between the two.Read More
“The Caribbean of the Bay of Bengal”, “an undiscovered gem of India”, one of the “hottest spots to watch”. The Andaman Islands are easily one of the top islands we’ve ever been to & we like islands a lot, so that’s saying something.

With the peak sitting at over 4050m, Gulmarg is the highest lift-served ski resort in the world & boasts an unmatched amount of backcountry terrain. Gulmarg is unfortunately tainted by conflict in the region, but still proves itself as a truly unique and incredible experience.Read More
