The love for beaches

Recently I got back to my routine runs at Worli Sea Face. As I finished my run, I had this warm feeling spreading through me that brought a familiar smile on my face just looking at the waves. They were barely visible in the dark night and I found myself thinking just why I have such a fascination for the ocean.

Thailand Adventures

Though much more famous as a honeymoon destination, Andaman has enough and more to offer to a group of friends looking to have a good time.  On reaching Port Blair, we wasted no time in getting from the airport to the point where you get the ferry to the Havelock Islands, we had our goal pretty much set. A journey of 3 hours in the boat with a view to die for all through the way. Clear waters spread across like a never ending oasis all around as far as your eyes can see in mesmerising hues of blue.
