Is 2007 the year that you will break out from that tired vacation spot and embrace an adventure? Chatkath~ So happy to see you today! Thanks for such high praise for this little Jerusalem travel guide; you always make me smile. I will keep you in my thoughts in the hope that you can someday manage that vacation to “The City of Peace.” I am certain you will find it an amazing adventure spiritually, physically, as well as visually. Wellness seekers will appreciate the treatments at the spa at Oberoi Rajvilas, which includes chakra balancing and massages using hot Himalayan stones. There are also yoga, meditation, and singing-bowl sessions at this atmospheric hotel in the equally atmospheric Pink City. Our next day’s visit was very interesting again, we travelled to Gudauri a beautiful snow-capped hill station, where you can witness nature at its very best. Gudauri is located 120km from Tbilisi and it usually takes about 2 hours to reach from the capital. It is a destination spot for skiing, speed riding and paragliding or even if you just need to take pictures and enjoy the scenic beauty! The snow is so bright that we need sunglasses.

In recent years, India has caught the attention of global trotters as a hot-shot tourist destination. There are number of choices available for tourists who want to opt for India tours. For wildlife enthusiasts, there are an array of national parks and wildlife sanctuaries in India offering opportunities for rendezvous with the wild. The diverse landscapes and mesmerizing terrains of the Great Himalayas offers some of the most arduous yet adventurous trekking trails. In the South, the sun-drenched beaches of Goa and palm-fringed backwaters of Kerala are the most loved tourist destinations. It was a rough ride that I was glad I did not sit in front of the car. It was a serpentine road that I felt I was in a roller coaster inside the van. Though it was a rough travel, I did enjoy seeing the beauty of the countryside filled with coconuts, bananas, mango trees and some beautiful flowers along the road like bougainvilleas and wild orchids.

Ø Check on the message boards, both virtual and real. Real message boards are available at hostels and local guest houses, and they can provide excellent information on local tours travel insurance and tour operators. The staff at local hostels can also provide excellent information about adventure travel. And internet message boards devoted to travel can be great sources of information, both before you leave home and after you arrive in your far off location. I think with increased communication, we get familiar with other cultures, but seeing them personally has an altogether different impact. And easy travel makes it an enjoyable and rich experience.
